Let's get right to the point. According to my lovely scale I have gained weight this week. Do I want to believe it? Of course not. Do I believe it? Not really. Am I really good at making excuses? Absolutely.
As of yesterday (because for some reason I've been cheat weighing in all week, I really need to stop) I was down 1.5 lbs for the week. As of this morning I was 2 lbs heavier than yesterday (otherwise known as a net gain of .5 lbs). Did I really gain 2 lbs in one day? Obviously not.
I really hate people who make excuses, even though I'm totally doing that right now. The following may be the explanation, it may not, but no matter what, I won't be discouraged. I broke two of my cardinal rules yesteday 1) I didn't drink as much water as I usually do (and therefore I'm retaining water, duh) and 2) I ate dinner after 7pm (stupid, AMAZING, haircut).
As much as I can convince myself that the scale is lying to me this morning, it makes no sense to keep a blog documenting everything and then lie. Plus, I just made a huge stink about NOT struggling. Karma.
Next week my weigh in day will come a day early as I'm heading out to Salt Lick on Thursday night and have zero desire to see what kind of damage I did, by getting on the scale Friday morning. I have a feeling that the week after I may also see some setbacks since it includes several days of wedding festivities for Beth and Kelly. I'll have to hit the gym hard the next few weeks :)
Speaking of the gym I'm going to my first personal training session today. I still don't know how I feel about it, but I'll keep my fingers crossed that it goes well. You can be sure that I'll be writing about it.
Also, I don't think I ever shared that I tried the Melt In Your Mouth Chicken with Greek yogurt instead of sour cream, and yum! Cuts about 100 calories per serving and still tastes delicious!
