So, here's the thing that really sucks. After three great workouts this week, and a reasonable diet, I decided to weigh in. I am UP 3lbs.
I am really, really, really, irritated about this.
To be true to myself, my eating wasn't perfect all week. But it was very good. My exercise was amazing. Did I deserve a big loss? Probably not. Did I deserve a big gain? Heck, no!
So, here's the stuff that plays around like a broken record in my head:
- You're doing all the right things! Keep it up, and the scale will reward you in time.
- You need to tighten the belt (pardon the pun) on your eating habits. Snacking gets a little out of hand between the hours of 4 and 6. You didn't eat before 7pm on most nights last week.
- You need to exercise a bit more if you want to lose weight aggressively.
p.s. Know what else really irritated me? There was a couple in front of me at spinning yesterday, who tried to "reach out" and hold each others hand several times during the class. Now, I can be a big romantic when I'm in the mood. And I don't mind a bit of cheese every now and then. But, this? During a Spinning class? Come ON! Hardly the place or time. I must have muttered "Get a room!" at least twice.
