Yep, as of this morning I have gained back the 5 pounds I lost a couple of check ins ago. I'm trying to not stress about it because of two reasons I know that the scale just does not understand. First, I have been exercising quite hard this past week. Not run a marathon hard but for me, I have stepped it up a bit and my muscles are tired and holding water. I think this because yesterday I weighed 2 less pounds than today. I really worked hard on the elliptical yesterday and drank a lot of water. Secondly, my clothes seem to fit better. Losing inches is better than losing weight right? I know, me too, I'd rather lose weight. How crazy is that?
Here's a few stats for the number nerd in me.
150 push ups
150 sit ups
5740 average steps - a mixture of elliptical and outside walks. This number is pretty much made up...I cannot get my Vivofit to sync but I know I've averaged over 5000 steps everyday and some days were in the 7000's.
I did not really track my diet very well but I will say that I ate too much pizza. Did I really say that? I made pizza early on in the week and some how my husband missed out on it and requested I make it again. I was more than happy to do so. So lots of pizza and a bag of Ruffles did not help the weigh in at all.
Since completing my gallbladder cleanse I have been struggling in staying faithful to my diet plan. Trim Healthy Mama apparently is still on vacation and 5:2 Fasting is in the principals office. Seriously, I get so grumpy toward my family on my fasting days that I cannot even stand me. The past few days I've been on the Fast Five. Basically I only eat in a five hour window. It keeps the grumpies away but not sure it's helping the weight loss department. I will give it another week, hopefully with more control, and rethink it.
