I was down 0.2lbs today at weigh-in. Current weight is 190.8lbs with a total of 60.8lbs lost. Not a very big loss at all. But, hey I’ll take it because to be honest I thought I would have gained.
This was probably the one week where I can honestly say I fell off the wagon. Not only did a eat more then I needed, but I also didn’t track everything!! The last couple of days I knew I’d blown it and didn’t bother writing down a few things here and a few things there. Argh. I am very disappointed with myself. I’m finding it hard to get back on track with my eating for some reason. Maybe its the weather? Maybe I’m missing some nutrients in my meals that I’m searching for? I don’t know yet.
My exercise is okay. Still getting in my gym dates, but only did one day of videos at home. I had a nice long walk on Monday, but it just doesn’t take as much energy as it used to. I’m also not drinking enough water. I KNOW this. I can feel it. I’m thirsty and my urine is yellow and not clear anymore (sorry for the TMI!). This has to do with the weather – it’s cold out, it’s cold in my apartment and the last thing I want to do is drink water. I’m averaging about 6 glasses (250ml) a day – usually I get in at least 8 or 10-12 on heavy exercise days.
I need to refocus! My eating, water intake, and be more consistent with my exercise.
This weekend I’m going out of town out west (Alberta!) for a conference. I’ll be gone for 4 days. The good news: there’s a gym in the hotel. The bad news: Eating out for every meal. I’m hoping that this change in my schedule is the kick in the ass I need to shake things up and get back on track.
I’m also noticing a trend – for the last few times I’ve reached a significant amount of weight loss (specifically 40 and 50 pounds) my next weigh-in is either a very small loss or a small gain. Perhaps it’s also a way of my body adjusting? I hope so.
I’m not sure how much I’ll be able to post this week with this conference coming up, I’ll try to get some short ones in, but if not I promise to return next Tuesday.
