Anyway, last week I had a gain of 0.8 lbs. My first thought was water retention but I didn't dwell on it too long as I'd had many weeks of losses prior. However, I am 2 days away from my next weigh-in and things aren't looking too good on the scale. I've peeked for a few days and things look wonky.
Am I worried?
No. You know why? Because I switched up my exercise routine and it took me a few days to figure things out. Also, this past week I was house sitting, attending birthday parties (yes multiple), and planning my first of many vacations coming up. And with all that going on, I'm pretty sure I missed some food in my log, therefore my calorie count is probably not as accurate as it has been in the past. And when that happens, things can go awry. Again, I'm not worried. I need to be more diligent counting and I will be. And who knows, Friday could get here and things could be fine.
I leave for Vegas Saturday morning for our annual trip. The casino I'm staying at has a gym and I have all intentions of using it as there are buffets in my future. I'm not planning to stress this too much as this is my first get away in over a year and I really want to relax and enjoy myself. I will admit that I'm a little nervous too. I mean, a whole weekend in Sin City could really do some damage!
On the exercise front: I've been biking and swimming, swimming and biking, and occasionally rowing. I hurt my foot! Yeah, have NO IDEA what's going on with it but it's out of commission for any weight bearing exercises. Here's the thing, this happened to me in June of 2010 and I let it completely shut me down. I'm trying very, very hard not to let that happen this time. So, I've been biking, swimming and rowing. And it's BORING and it takes a LONG TIME to burn a decent amount of calories but I'm still doing it. How's the elbow you ask? Definitely getting better but it screams at me horribly if I use my arm too much. So, I have to really watch anything with my arms.
I'm a mess. I really am. But I'm persevering.
Anyway, here's my progress since July 6:
