Today is weigh-in day and boy did that sucker sneak up on me…
We had guests over the past week and while I didn’t eat great I didn’t eat all that bad. However, I wasn’t able to workout like I usually do. So after indulging in sushi and wine… and Chick-Fil-A, I weighed myself to check in on the damage.
The scale said 207.2…
Needless to say, I freaked out. I immediately wrote a blog post about my hatred of anything cute and cuddly. I was in one of “those” moods.
Usually when I have a setback like this I’ll say, “Screw it!” and eat whatever I want in the form of a pity party. I really wanted a pity party…
If I had done this I would have carried on until I gained another five pounds and then realized that I really need to do something about this weight… a novel idea right?
I knew going down this shame spiral wasn’t an option. So despite this setback I made myself go to the gym and get right back on track. You know what? I felt better instantly.
So this morning I did my obligatory strip down/weigh-in. I weighed in at 199.8
Phew… The moral of the story? Soy sauce is not my friend… and I seriously need to stop weighing myself during the week.
I was so relieved that I didn’t really care that my hair was super messed up from sleeping with it wet last night. I just wanted to take these monthly pictures and be done with it.
Keep in mind, my photographer is 10…
Yeah… so things are pretty much looking the same. I also took my measurements and you can find them under the measurements tab.
I’ve only managed to lose one inch around my waist this month and an inch in my boobs. I’m so ready for those suckers to shrink!
This little bit of shrinkage has caused my favorite Lululemon pants to shimmy down every time I run in them. I want to be happy about this, but I LOVE those pants!
I’ve only got 4 weeks until summer so I’ve been doing some soul searching as to what I need to change to be more successful. The obvious is to forgo sushi and Chick-Fil-A but I don’t think that is my only problem.
I’ve toyed with the idea of participating in the Whole30. Another blogger directed my attention to it. It lasts for thirty days meaning I will have completed it just in time for summer. It sounds crazy restrictive but what drew my attention to it was the fact that it’s supposed to help balance out your hormones. Since I struggle with PCOS ,a hormone disorder that causes me to gain weight, I’m thinking it might be a wise choice.
My reservations about it lie in the fact that I feel like it’s only a temporary fix. There is no way I could sustain that way of eating forever.
In the mean time I’ve finally renewed my prescription of Metformin which is supposed to help with my insulin resistance. I go back in a month for blood work to see if I need to see an endocrinologist.
Until then I’ll keep chugging away…
Have you ever heard of the Whole30? What are your thoughts?
And how did your week go? I’d love to know.
