So, here we are…another weekly weigh in. Unfortunately, I may be seeing the beginning of an icky pattern. A pattern where one week I am up, and the second week I am down. How frustrating that is going to be (if it continues)…
My weigh in this week was 273.8, which is only 0.4 pounds up from last week. The fact that it is *any* amount *up* from last week is what gets me, though.
Here is my thought process…
I only worked out three times at the gym this week instead of my usual four. Ebony had to cancel Thursday night because she was horribly ill. (Hope she’s feeling better, by the way.) Wednesday night I met with Dorsey, though, and he K-I-C-K-E-D my butt in under 20 minutes – really. He was showing me some postural corrective exercises (to fix that strange knee I mentioned earlier), so I thought it would be light and simple – NOPE! I should have known better, honestly, working out with Dorsey is *never* “light and simple.” I thanked him for it, though. After finishing with Dorsey, I did my usual three sets of arms/abs on the machines followed by 35 minutes on the elliptical (2.5 miles).
My muscles were sore through Friday evening when I went to work out the legs and back some more (go figure). My workout Friday was intense. I added a few things Dorsey showed me Wednesday to my leg/back routine. Honestly, it is Sunday, and my legs are still sore. (Not horribly, but sore nonetheless)
So, I am wondering if working out only three days caused the gain…or if I just added some muscle mass this week, which outweighed my loss. Either way – I can “explain it away” and it still bothers me tremendously. Of course this means that I will likely be on the scale tomorrow morning wondering if that “extra” 0.4 pounds is going to go away. We have a busy day today, so I will be up moving around quite a bit. Here’s to hoping I weigh in lighter tomorrow.
How did your week turn out? Have you met any of your goals this week?
