This morning as I was sitting in traffic during my commute into work, my mind was wandering and I started trying to figure out why the scale had been mean to me this week. I tracked all of my food and tracked it honestly. I worked out three days on the elliptical. And yet, I was up a half a pound on Monday, and two pounds as of this morning.
I ran my week thru my brain over and over trying to figure out what the deal was and what I could do to fix it. I knew I went over calories a few days, but it wasn't by much and the days I worked out I was under calories. In my head that broke even. But I figured I should probably check the numbers to see if that might be my problem.
Here is the last 10 over/under:
Yea. So. Makes sense now, don't it?
Granted, yesterday's emotional random binge didn't help the situation. I would have been +115 if I had been a good girl yesterday.
So maybe that's not my problem after all?
Regardless, it's not good what I am doing.
This is what I miss most about Weight Watchers: Weekly Points Allowance.
After looking at all of this, I have decided to start keeping track of my over/under. I need to keep it as close to 0 as possible. That's my new goal. I don't need to be under calories every day, and some days I can go over, but as long as in the end, I still break even, we are all good in the neighborhood.
And on a completely unrelated note....This happened:
