The week is halfway over! I am so looking forward to the weekend. Sorry it’s been a week since my last post. I have so much going on this month that it’s hard to find time to sit down and blog. It’s not that I don’t have anything to say, trust me I have a lot of topics I’d like to address but I just don’t have the time lately. Between baseball/softball, dance recital coming up, end of the year party (homeroom mom here), birthdays, and getting ready for our upcoming vacation I am OVERWHELMED! I’m not complaining just a little stressed trying to get it all done while fitting in workouts and watching what I eat. My brain is hard to shut off at night cause I’m constantly going over what I have to do next. As a result I haven’t been sleeping that great the last few nights and the last 2 days I felt somewhat lethargic and fatigued in my workouts. I tried to give it my all in spin yesterday but just didn’t have the energy.
So I wasn’t too surprised that I only lost 1 lb this week, 5 lbs total from the 17 I gained back. I really think my lack of sleep is the reason for it. I worked my butt off at the gym last week and I have been very conscious of what I eat lately. I’ve been trying to watch my sodium intake as well as fat and carbs. I haven’t had Starbucks in almost 2 weeks! That is huge for me! I’ve also been trying to drink more water as well. Speaking of drinking more water, why is it that I feel more bloated after drinking more water than I did before? Like I will try to get some in right before bed and the next thing I know I look like I’m 3 months pregnant and feel really full like I just ate a big meal. I thought it was supposed to have the opposite effect? lol Any ideas?
Ok so anyone remember my rant about not finding jeans to fit my body shape? Well about 2 weeks ago I found a pair of capris at Kohls in the juniors section (which surprised me) that fit in every area, especially the waist which is really hard for me to find. They fit perfect and now they are already loose on me! So I guess I’m losing inches anyway. I try not to rely so much on the scale because I know I am building muscle and all, but it’s so hard to not want to see the number get lower.
So anyway, I’m not too upset about the 1 lb lost, I’m just glad I lost and didn’t gain! lol My goal for this next week is 2 lbs. I’ll be watching my diet even closer this week and make adjustments as needed. 🙂
