My weight can fluctuate drastically in one week. Heck, it can fluctuate drastically in one day! And I’m sure I’m not the only person this happens to.
Even though I am trying to lose weight, I know the scale cannot completely define my success. I am down 4.8 pounds from my weigh in last week. YES! But, No too. My last weigh in was the day after I got back from CA, the day after I ate a big slice of Costco pizza and other sodium filled crap. I mean, I was actually up the day after all of that!
So no, I didn’t lose almost 5 pounds in a week. But, I might have lost some weight and some water = which seems more realistic.
At this point I am just happy the scale is moving in the right direction = DOWN.
Not Running: This morning I attempted to do a speed workout on the treadmill and couldn’t. My knee was hurting only seven minutes into my warm up, so I walked. Then, I did some of the 2 minute speed intervals and for some reason it didn’t hurt if I was going really fast for two minutes and then I would walk in between (but if I tried to jog during the rest intervals it would hurt).
I have a doctor’s appointment tomorrow though. This is the first time in years that I can’t run at all. Even when I got tendonitis last January I just cut back to 4 times a week and I was fine! I am very very frustrated, sad and discourgaged right now and just can’t stay positive today. Boo.
I went with pumpkin oats and it was dee-lish! But, even though I ate this late (around 10am!) I was still hungry right at noon. I think no matter what time I eat or how big my breakfast my body still tells me to eat at my usual lunch time. Weird.Lunch: After an appointment and some errands I raced back home for lunch. I made TJ’s frozen eggplant parm for lunch and paired it with some broccoli and a sandwich thin. I know it looks gross, but it was good!
V Day: Even though every year I tell my guy and my dad NOT to buy me candy – they usually do. But , this year Ben actually listened and my dad is across the country. So, no heart shaped box filled with chocolates for me. And I’m sad 🙁 I’m considering hitting up a good chocolate store and getting a good piece of chocolate to enjoy today!
