You ever have one of those weeks where everything seems to be going wrong? I had one of those this week. It wasn’t anything major, really, and most of it was probably due to my dear Aunt Flo heading this way, but I just felt off all week.
So I wasn’t exactly surprised when I stepped on the scale this week to a two pound gain. And of course, my scales didn’t agree, again. One said 2lbs, the other said it was just 1. But I know me, and I’m pretty sure it was the larger gain.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not upset by this. I fully understand all of the factors that went into this gain.
- Increased weight training instead of just cardio
- Not closely tracking calories and macros
- Trail Mix. OMG Trail mix. Trail mix with nuts and raisins. Trail mix with nuts, raisins and M&Ms. Trail mix in neat little packages that were sitting at work for snacking on.
I ate way too much of that trail mix this week. And I was being pretty lazy about logging in MFP this week. That, combined with hormonal factors, was a recipe for a higher number.
I begin next week with a renewed sense of the importance of watching my macros and my calories. I’m also grateful that all the trail mix was eaten this week, and it is no longer a temptation to me!
On the bright side, my clothes don’t feel any tighter than they did last week, if anything, they feel a bit looser!
