So the trip to Onderland only lasted one day.. but what a glorious day! I was actually expecting a gain today.. like it does every week, my weight goes up on the days after my weight lifting. I looked at the past two weeks and, sure enough, my weight goes up and down depending on my exorcise routine. The good thing is that the numbers are continually going down. 3 weeks ago it was ranging between 207 and 204. Last week it was 203 and 201. This week... 199 and most like 202 will be my highest. The important thing is that by next week I should be staying in the 190's.
I don't think I ever understood this before. First of all, I never stayed on track this long to study my body and its habits. Second, I'm pretty sure I never lasted long because I didn't understand my body. I see a 2 pound gain in the middle of every week.. this is because I do heavy lifting and extreme cardio and my body is not only holding on to water, but I am building muscle. I remember doing Tae Bo for hours a day and seeing the pounds drop.. but then see a 3 or 4 pound gain and I would fall into a depression and find the closest cookie jar. Today I know that it is water.. it will go down again.. I am doing fantastic. Who knows what I will learn about my body next month? LOL Not only am I finding myself (physically, emotionally,spiritually) but it feels like I am meeting my body for the first time. Who said meeting new people isn't fun!
I did my run this morning. 1.5 miles in 26 minutes.. a snails pace, but a pace none the less. I also did my lower weight circuit. Tomorrow is a rest day.. but I'm thinking of doing at least a 30 min stroll on the tready just to keep my legs from tightening up too much.
I am cutting out carbs today. Not for any other reason then because I ate a lot of them yesterday.. and I don't want them to be the cause of a gain next WI. Lots of protein and veggies today.
A big hug to all of you for being such wonderful blogfriends! I wouldn't be this successful without all of you cheering me on!
