Weigh-in: 1/31/11

Gain. Yup, another one. Even though it was "only" 0.2, the scale is still going in the wrong direction. When I got to my meeting this evening, I hopped on the scale before she was ready and she said "Oh, you must have had a good week, you are EAGER to get weighed!" I told her "No, I just want to get it over with and start a new week".

I knew that I had another gain, I just felt it. I didn't eat that bad, I had a slight indulgence over the weekend, but I stayed within my points. My period is STILL on, so maybe that's what's up. I don't know, but what I do know is that I'm shooting for 3+ pounds LOST next week to absorb the 2.2 I've gained the last week. My sister and I have the same goal, I really need to step it up.


Things out of my control:
1) AF in town, retaining water

Things within my control:
1) I didn't exercise with enough intensity this week.
2) Even though I've averaged over 60oz of water each day, that's only a little more than half of what I usually drink
3) I did not count my points consistently.
4) Even thought I didn't count all my points, most days I know that I didn't consume all of my points which isn't good in the long-run either.

Well obviously the things within my control outweigh the things outside of my control so I just need to suck it up and get moving and grooving.

Later Gators...


  1. So...let's knock some of this weight down. Given that Feb is Black History Month. And Feb 4 is Go Red for Women Day (American Heart Association), I propose that we do a monthlong fitness challenge. EVERY.SINGLE.DAY during the month of February we must commit to performing at least 30 minutes of physical activity. You can break this up in 5, 10, 15 minute increments or bust the whole thing out at once. Our choice. We can do whatever we want - dance, skip, whatEVER will get us to moving. I will also be posting this challenge on various fb fitness groups I am a member of. Are you down, woman? :)
