I had hopes the scale would be back down to where it was last Friday, but nope, only at 158.8. Which is not a completely bad thing considering I was at 159.6 on Monday, but knowing that Im still not back down to where I was last week is frustrating.
I have noticed a pattern though, that I am usually at my highest weight on Wednesdays, and lowest on Fridays. Monday is usually right in the middle. I really dont know why that is, but I really wish that I could at least maintain a steady weight throughout the week. While working out this evening I realized that is already almost mid March, and it doesnt look like this month will show any loss either. Lets hope that this is the month I really notice results with my measurements.
I am looking into this, but briefly (because I dont count calories), I plugged my calories into a calorie counter, and it looks like I am possibly not eating enough. That seems strange to cause a gain or maintain, but maybe with what Im eating and the frequency with which Im working out, Im actually not losing but gaining. Just a thought. I may track a few days and if it looks that way, I may try eating more and see what happens.
Thanks to everyone who posted great ideas for helping me when I stay over at my boyfriends. Most of the time I can plan to bring healthy foods, but sometimes I have those nights where Ive had too much to drink, the weather sucks, or I fall asleep watching a movie with him and its not planned. Those are the hard times. And exercise - in the summer we are really good with this and at least go for walks or bike rides. Last Sunday was difficult because we were gone all day (woke up, went to breakfast, went to the game, came home and had dinner with his parents, I went home, made my lunch for the next day, and went to bed). This isnt always the case, I think normally its hard to get my butt moving because I feel bad being at his house, but then ditching him. I need some ideas of how to get exercise in but involving him too so hes not bored or wondering why I didnt just go home....
