Well, this is a very confusing time for me. I had been stuck, dropped 4.2 pounds in a week, almost nothing the next week and then I ATE!! I had 3 high calorie days (2100-2500 cals) and I LOST and I continued, on purpose, to eat around those numbers and I'm still losing (and right before TOM ~ now THAT'S huge!!)
My family has had 3 birthdays in 2 weeks and that's the reason for the higher calorie days. The family has asked about cake for my birthday and really, I don't want cake right now. I thought about asking them to just get me a cupcake so all of that isn't sitting around here, but then, NO ~ the best gift I can give myself is to take care of me so I just don't want it!! Not to mention the motivation behind the fact that my weight this morning was the lowest I've ever been in my adult life!! Happy birthday to me, happy birthday to.............oh yeah, where was I????
Anyway, there is always a "they"!! DH and I ask each other all the time, "Who is "THEY" anyway?" The experts......but who are they? Can you tell I don't tend to believe everything I hear/read? So, I know that you are supposed to eat more calories the more that you do, but I guess now I believe it too!!LOL. Really I have always believed that ~ consciously ~ but it really doesn't make sense to me so maybe somewhere within, I just couldn't.
I was working out very hard when I wasn't losing......guess my body was about to let me know about it. If anyone ever looked at my tracker very often, it would make them dizzy thinking about how often I change my calorie range......BECAUSE I'M CONFUSED (or changing up what I do ~ but usually just confused!)!!! So, I'm gonna stick with this for now........do whatever it takes!! Even if it means eat more???? Oh punish me!!! What a slippery slope!! I'll be watching closely though!!
Still running (C25K, W4) and loving it!! I signed DH and I up (yes, he approved first!
) for the Miracle Mountain Ranch 5K Stampede at the end of May. It sounded so meeeee!!! So I jumped in AND I'm sooo excited. Well, I'm always sidetracked so that means I've got loads of things to do before DH gets home and we run.
Do what it takes to reach your goals ~ you're worth it!!!! I hope you all have an awesome day!!
