Taking my scale on my bike ride with me next time.
Sunday, March 21, 2010
When I blog & report my successes (hoping to affirm my effort & inspire others), I immediately fall off (and under) the wagon. So I can't do that anymore. Let's just say that I'm boycotting the chocolate bunny industry in Southern CA and my bike odometer shows 22 more miles on it after I sat on for 2.25 hrs today without resting or eating. And the scale shows more (yep, you read that correctly) pounds after a week of eating & exercising !!!!!!!! Yeah, I know the theory of starvation mode...but it seems I'm eating tons of healthy food (and starving 2- minutes later). So I'm taking the scale with me on the next bike ride & hope I get some R-E-S-P-E-C-T!
On the more serious side, I know I need to adjust my fitness goals so my calorie range matches. But the reality is...we're on vacation, newly retired and my dh has health issues that seriously limit his physical endeavors ---and he hates the limitations!! So I squeeze in as much exercise as I can, as often as I can, in a way that doesn't make him feel even worse. But it's impossible to predict so that my calorie range reflects my fitness efforts. Anyone else facing this awkward situation?
