Missed last week's weigh-in due to travel. I spent a weekend in Chicago and a full week in Madison. You can only imagine the sorts of food I was eating! My husband and I were on a mission to try all sorts of things we can't get at home (Nepalese, Ethopian, etc). We had some amazing meals, and I tried really hard not to stress too much and just enjoy myself. Our hotel had a fridge and microwave, so I was able to have oatmeal for breakfast and salad/yogurt for lunch a few times. Unfortunately the hotel gym was closed for repairs, but I did get a lot of walking in.
I felt awful and bloated for several days after getting home, but eventually started to get back to normal. I lifted on Monday for the first time in two weeks and was so sore for two days I wanted to cry. I was able to get back at it yesterday, though, so with a bit of a schedule shift I should get 3 weight room sessions in this week.
Found out I'm going to be spending all next week in Omaha, so here we go again with a ton of eating out. No fridge or microwave this time, either. I may be living off Quest bars for awhile.
ANYWAY...the weigh-in: 158.5
Down a pound or so, which I must say is surprising after some of the naughty things I did last week. My plan was to end the reset on September 17th and start a cut, but I may extend things for awhile. I'd like to get to a point where I'm really able to dial in what my maintenance TDEE is...I think I'm close but not quite stable enough for my liking yet. It will be a lot easier to fine tune when I'm home for an extended period and can really be meticulous with weighing and measuring things. Plus, I'm really liking this eating a lot thing, and if the scale isn't going up, I'm cool sticking with it. Lord knows my body could probably use the extended break.
