I get anxious every Tuesday, because Wednesday is Weigh-In Day for me. Though I choose to weigh-in several days a week, Wednesday is the official day and affects my confidence for a few days.
Last Wednesday, I was pleased to see a 2 pound loss for the week. That is 26 pounds down since August 9th.
Since I began eating better in August, this was my first period of going above my normal calorie target of 1,300. I had certainly gone above (up to 2,200) on rare days, but in the last week, I had some pizza, chips, candy, nachos, ice cream, etc. Never in a binge situation...just careless junk food eating mixed in with other low-calorie meals.
I also did not exercise this week. I had been so pleased with some recent runs, but I know that I far surpassed that rule that you shouldn't increase your mileage more than 10% in a week. I tend to think that those rules are overly cautious, but after 5 runs in 8 days, my right knee was constantly sore and I just backed off. I should have jumped on the bike.
Anyway, I think I was lucky to have still dropped two. I have not lost any weight since then, so today I did a short run/walk and will likely get on the bike this afternoon. Also, I'm returning to healthy, hardcore eating today. Low-fat, lots of broccoli and protein and back to drnking rivers of water.
What do you all have planned for this weekend?
