Eat More To Weigh Less - Week 4 Weigh-In
Made the mistake of weighing myself on Monday because I was so bummed out about going up to 160.8 on Friday that I figured "I'm probably down a bit, I'll check". 163.4! Immediately after that, TOM came to visit - so yeah, bad idea to get on the scale.
I then spent the better part of the week being really, really bummed out. I also ended up getting sick, which meant I wasn't working out. I tried to adjust calorie intake accordingly and eat a bit less since I wasn't burning anything exercising, but still stay relatively close to my goals. I'll be damned if I'm going to give up on this now because I'm starting to freak out a bit.
Scale today - 159.8. Down almost 4 pounds from Monday's super bloat, and one full pound from last Friday, when I'm sure I was already starting to retain water. That's a total gain of 2.2 pounds in one month of the reset. I was hoping to get through 8 weeks with not much more than 5 pounds, so I'd say I'm on track.
Bad news for healthy eating - we're headed to Chicago for the weekend to visit friends, then immediately to Madison on Sunday where I'll be spending the week while my husband works on a project for work. 8 days straight of eating out is going to be crazy. Our trips to Chicago usually revolve around our favorite things to eat, and you can't spend time in Wisconsin without drinking a ton of beer and eating fried cheese curds, hehehe. I did pick a hotel that had a fridge/microwave and a nice looking gym, so I should be able to get some workouts in, plus lots of general walking around for sight-seeing. Next week's weigh-in may be a doozy.
