If it's Saturday, it's a weigh in. And if it is me breathing it seems, it will be a gain
Good news first- son lost 1.2 lb. Yay !!!! I changed the mix in his diet to be a little higher in protien this week.
Hubby maintained. Did no working out, ate chocolate cake at the office twice and stayed the same. I hate men.
Then I stepped on the scale and gained +4.0. Reasons for the gain ? Your guess is as good as mine.I am not going to get upset about it , sweat it or freak out over it. Clearly at this particular time my body, in it's infinite wisdom is trying hard to do other things and the energy required to flip things to weight loss at this time is a no go. I can respect that. I can also be patient and rest in the fact that I am doing all that I can for my body to make a healthy change, and it will do what it can when it can. My son is losing, which was the original intention of this lifestyle move. Hubby ...well he got to have cake and did not gain so it is not all bad. So being a creature of habit and commitment, I sucked up the gain, owned it, and reported it to Team Angie. Sorry guys. Complain to my hormones. I certainly have.
I did something different yesterday. I went to a sight that calculates your caloric needs according to age, height, sex and activity level and determines how many calories you must eat per day and how much you should be exercising per day. I wanted to see if perhaps I was just taking in too many calories. It says I am supposed to have 1580 calories per day and 5 workouts of 30 minutes. Even according to this kind of calculations I am doing all that I should. So , no use geting upset about it, just keep on keeping on.
