This week was a busy gym week for me. I worked out with Denise Sunday and Monday. Tuesday brought just cardio (Neil Armstrong machine). Wednesday was self defense class with Dorsey and a hefty arms/abs workout. Thursday was Zumba, and Friday was me floating around the gym for two hours working my legs – in the limited ways I am able to. So, Saturday (yesterday) was the only day I did not step foot into the gym. I was expecting to see much better results on the scale. Not so much.
That is a loss from last week – one pound. Again. What is up with that? Here is what is really strange… Last week when I wrote my weigh in on my chart at the gym, Denise noticed a little pattern:
Week 28 – 4.2 pounds lost
Week 29 – 1.0 pound lost
Week 30 – 1.0 pound lost
Week 31 – 2.0 pounds lost
Week 32 – 1.8 pounds lost
Week 33 – 4.2 pounds lost
Week 34 – 1.0 pound lost
Can you see it? So, theoretically, I will only lose another one pound next week when I weigh in…if this pattern holds true. Of course, I hope it does not. Losing one pound during a week irritates me, honestly. Especially during weeks like this where I know I have worked *hard* to lose more than that. I do not even think it can be explained away with muscle either. I only lifted weights one day this week (Wednesday).
I know I should not find this *that* frustrating. It is certainly better than gaining anything on any week, which I know some of my blogger friends have that to deal with. Despite thinking of it in that way, though, I am still bothered by it. So, I will be back in the gym today (in less than one hour) working toward a more-than-one-pound loss next week. Here’s to hoping…
12 weeks; 5 days
