Do You Know What Today Is?

It’s My Anniversary! It’s My Anniversary! (Love that Song) 3 years of marriage and it still feels like day 1. I say that’s a good thing! No special plans for us until this weekend which is cool with me because, it’s so much easier for us to get someone to watch the kids!

Thursday- Cardio Recovery and Spin Bike
Friday- Cardio Power and Resistance
Saturday- Rest
Sunday- Pure Cardio and Cardio Abs

Today’s Weigh in: 185.4 a 0.6 gain!

Where should I start? What went down this weekend or my disappointment in my weight gain?  
I guess I will start with the fun stuff first. Friday night Hubby and I went out to eat, I ate a nice salad with a small proportion of wheat spaghetti and 1 turkey meatball, this was all before 8pm so I didn’t fail with my goal of not eating after 8pm.

Saturday I missed my workout and counted it as my rest day! We went to a baby shower and to my surprise they served lots Vegan dishes, chicken shish kabobs, sautéed mushrooms, zucchini and squash, everything there was healthy. I didn’t go over board, I ate in proportion and was drinking my water with it. I did have a carrot cake cupcake for my dessert. It was a beautiful day with great friends and healthy food choices.

Sunday I had to get up early to pick my daughter up from a sleep over and then we went straight to her soccer practice. There I ran around kicking the ball with my 3yr old while my daughter practiced. We then went to get ice cream with my daughter’s friend and parents. I didn’t have any ice cream but, was happy to see how much the kids were enjoying theirs. By the time I got home I was beyond tired. I fed the kids, I ate a salad, bathed my son and popped in the Insanity DVD and got my workout in!!! Once I showered, I iced my knees and popped 2 pain killers and yet they are still killing me. I don’t know how I’m going to get through Insanity if my knees are feeling this bad.
Doing the power jacks, jumping jacks, power jumps anything that consist of power and jumping I couldn’t do, so I had to substitute the moves and keep on moving. Overall I had a great weekend.

Now, weigh in today I was a little sadden by the gain of 0.6. I’ve been doing everything right. Working out, eating clean and smaller proportions, drinking lots of water, not eating after 8pm, getting enough rest (besides this weekend). I don’t know if I should add more of a workout or if I’m not eating enough! Normally I don’t care what the scale shows because, I have been losing inches, but, I have the same measurements since April! Now, I’m nervous because, I’m not seeing any results anywhere! What are your thoughts on this? Any advice you can offer is greatly appreciated! I hope everyone is having a great day! Stay tuned because, there’s more to see!

Hmmm...your body could be storing sodium or water. But! As long as you work hard, you'll see results. That's for sure. I'm sure you'll see a loss next week. XO!

Happy Anniversary! Maybe you aren't eating enough. Are you drinking enough water? Those are usually my problems when I don't lose a lot for the week or I stay the same. Take it easy on those knees. I modified jump squats by doing regular squats. You're still doing work but decreasing chances of injury. Good luck!

First HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!! I know what you mean about it still feeling like day 1, isn't that just FAB!!!

I have knee problems as well and try to stay away from high impact stuff especially as I'm still in the obese category.
