To be honest, I was COMPLETELY dreading this post – I felt as if I had nothing but FAILS to report. I was hanging my head in shame wishing that things would have been different – better, last week, but . . . . then I weighed myself this morning and (deep breath) DOWN 2.6 pounds – BOOYAH!!!! I had been struggling with gaining and loosing the same one pound 3 times the last 3 weeks but not this morning – BAM – it’s finally gone and so is its 1.6 pound friend too! So without further ado, here is the full disclosure of my less than stellar week -
Week of January 29, 2012
Sunday – I was 500 calories over my allotment – total fail on the diet; so disappointing
Monday – 17 calories under my goal (woo, cue the music and confetti – NOT!)
Tuesday – Oh yes, yes I did a 2 for Tuesday doubling up workout – body pump (increased the amount of weight I used for the back and biceps tracks – woo hoo, getting stronger) and a low intensity zumba class; was 288 calories above my daily allotment –sigh
Wednesday – I was 500 calories over the goal and swear I feel like this is impossible.
Thursday – I was 93 calories under my goal – whoopie!
Friday – I was 209 calories below my goal – that’s mo’ like it!
Saturday – Gigantic fail; I had planned to go to my normal double dose of Saturday fitness and then go to an urgent care center because I had been sick with another respiratory thingy, but after 20 minutes of driving in a freak snow storm (that was forecasted the night before to be “only rain and absolutely no snow accumulation” – liars!) and only getting about 12 miles up the road, I thought I would be better off to turn around and just go to the doctor’s office instead – and that’s what I did. Got an array of meds and started feeling better later in the day!; I was also 200 calories under my goal – yippee! (the photo below is my driveway as I prepared to leave a full 65 minutes before the class was to start)
How was your week: thumbs up or thumbs down?
Those of you who are diligent about tracking your calories and loosing weight – what factors do you think impact your weekly weight the most? Stress – either more or less than usual, salt, time of the month, hydration, adherence to calories, amount of exercise, other? I ask because last week was a LOT less stressful than the previous 3 weeks have been and I lost – coincidence or real connection?
