So you can probably guess from the post title that I didn't have a good weigh-in this morning. And you're guessing right.
Let me back up and give you a recap of my week....
I worked out EVERY DAY last week! And I worked out extra super hard 4 of those days. The other three days I ran a total of 12 miles.
Yesterday morning when I weighed in (just out of curiosity), the scale said 175! I was so excited! So thatweigh in is what spurred on my 6 mile run yesterday...to ENSURE that I would keep that loss until this orning's official weigh-in. So I'm not sure what happened. Today the scale said 177! That is up 2 pounds from yesterday morning AND 1 pound from last Monday's weigh-in!
So today I'm TICKED. Ticked because I worked my tail off to do what...GAIN? GRRRRR. I keep telling myself that MAYBE it's muscle. But I don't really believe it...not sure why. Maybe because that feels like the an excuse. I could also say that maybe I was putting undo stress onto my body and it was in shock from all the hard exercise I was making it do. Again, another excuse.
I guess I will just wait until next week and see if I've lost weight over the long-term. So change that weight loss goal of mine to 27 pounds instead of 26. How humbling.
