Weigh In: 5/19/12

Last week:     248.0
This week:     244.9

Lost:                  3.1

I actually had lied in my previous post this week.  I didn't just balloon up to 246 (that was what I weighed when I posted that) I had ballooned up to 248 last Saturday.  6 pound gain in a week.  Ugh.  That's why I was in such a bad place this week.  I was so disappointed in myself and I didn't completely understand why.

I'm still not in a great place mood wise in regards to everything.  I've been tracking food, exercising, etc.

I actually took two days in a row off from exercise this week because I had gone six days straight and I felt my body needed the extra time to recover.  That second day I felt so slovenly.  I just felt gross because in my head I felt I should have been working out to try and fix the weight gain.  Even though my body did need the recuperation, it was almost as though I was punishing myself for the massive weight gain, and punishing it with exercise.

This is not healthy.

So, here is what I'm thinking...

I've actually upped my caloric intake.  I took some people's advice about the possibility that maybe my calorie count was too low and so I upped it a bit.  I also think that I'm going to be switching up my caloric intake every week or so.  I'm hoping that this will shake up my metabolism so that it never really knows what the hell is going on.  We'll see how this experiment works.

I'm still on my C210K program and its going well.  With the exception of an occasional bad run, I still am enthusiastic about the whole thing.  I am now getting impatient though and want to be running longer distances.  I know I need to wait though and stick with the program.  If I stick with this one, maybe I'll be able to run faster as compared to when I first started running.  That time I gave up on the C25K because I wanted to run for longer stretches but yet I was slow as molasses.  We'll see if this theory pans out.  I'm hoping it does.

Anyway, that's it for my rambling right now.  I'm in Seattle this week.  I've never been here before and I absolutely adore it.  Definitely a city I could see myself settling down in if I ever decide to leave NYC.

Anyway, have a good day everyone!
