This week I lost my battle with the scale and I'm right back to where I've been trying to get away from since mid March. I'm back up 2lbs (after successfully loosing 3 in the last 2 weeks), not something I can explain easily as I feel slimmer, Todd says I'm looking slimmer and I don't feel a 2 lbs gain in my clothes. I know the scale is not a science and not the best measure of one's body. But boy it puts a bummer on my day, to the point that at the end of the day when I got home... I polished off those delish chocolates I was showing you yesterday, then took a nap, followed by 32 minutes on the treadmill, and some weights in the basement.
What could of thrown the scale off? Well I did eat out Thursday-Saturday, trying to make the best choices but there are so many hidden calories in restaurant food! Thursday was a pizza lunch with my DR kids to celebrate the end, Friday was battered haddock with salad, Saturday was fajitas for lunch, and a late night grilled chicken sandwich with only 1/2 the bun... and cake at the stag. So there are these foods that I can only guesstimate the point value of, also high sodium. I've been having a lot of headaches and migraines lately (more than usual), also the last two nights I have not slept well. Also though I'm not trying to get too stressed out/worked up over this weight thing I'm sure it is getting to me. All of these things are factors that can affect weight.
I knew I'd be eating out quite a bit, and had hoped to compensate with exercise... at least stay the same. However I guess 7 days in a row of physical activity didn't make a difference! Last week I did a combination of running, walking, Taekwon-Do, and spinning.
So I've put my big girl panties back on after my pity party today and I'm back at it again.
