Gain. I am back to where I started, but I feel like I have never stopped.
I try my hardest. I do my best. I sleep, destress, workout, watch what I eat, drink enough water and yet - - weight gain.
I am extremely anal about tracking so I know when I have eaten too much.
I PLAN cardio exercise, but honestly, only follow through on about half of it.
I faithfully ST - and anally track it.
I blog my weeks plan in order to be accountable to at least the internet, at most all of you and myself.
And yet, not just no progress, but weight gain!!
SO have I not been honest enough?
Have my portions sizes been creeping up? NO as if I think they might've I go back to weighing for a day to be sure.
Have I been sleeping enough? YES I am crazy anal about getting enough sleep.
HAve I been tracking EVERYTHING? YES I am also crazy anal about tracking everything.
Exercise. It all comes down to this. Why do I find it so hard? Yes it is winter and things always seem harder in winter. But still.
Is it the exercise I am planning that is stopping me? Possible as it is mostly outside and then I have a reason/excuse not to do it if the weather is bad. (However the weather has legitimately stopped me this week.)
I think I need to find some exercise that burns some calories but isn't hateful to my sensibilities. Is there such exercise? Well yes. I LOVE zumba. But don't really like going alone.
I HATE cleaning but I love the result and it burns a fair few calories.
I LOVE ST - is there a way to incorporate cardio into ST and can anyone help me learn it?
Tracker back to beginning.
Food going down a 100 calories or so (still within range).
Thanks for listening.
UPDATE: Got an extremely earlier monthly visitor (sorry if TMI) which explains both weight gain AND grumpy grumpison blogface
