The Results Are In & I Am SHOCKED!!

For the first time in a long time I am speechless - I weighed in on Friday and I had lost 6 pounds from the previous Friday - this is on the same scale at the gym.........I am soooooo happy to finally be only 5 pounds over my goal weight! Being as I was so motivated by finally seeing a loss I went back and looked at the things I had done over the week and they were:

I ate before and after each workout - technically I ate between 27 and 29 points each day.
I earned about 28 activity points between my 3 cardio workouts and my 3 weight training sessions.
I ate more protein - 1 day I actually hit 100 grams
I tried to limit my carbs
I drank at least 12 glasses of water
I varied my meals (we all know that I am the girl who used to eat the same thing for months on end)

Of those things, I really feel like eating more helped the most. I also think that I saw the stupid gain from last Friday because my body was adjusting to eating more and working out.....of course who knows really - I feel like my freaking body is a walking science experiment.

Thank you so much for sending me good vibes - not sure what I would do without you girls! Hope everyone had a good weekend.

Congrats!!! That is fantastic! You are encouraging me to hurry up and get on a workout routine. it is hard to tell when the body will actually appreciate the extra food or penalize you for it. I'm experimenting with that too. It's a tough balance between giving your body enough fuel or making it feel like it is going to be deprived.
