So, I weighed in today.
It was as I suspected. More than I was two weeks ago.
Here's the break down.
In two short weeks there have been:
4.4 lbs gained
1.25 inches gained around chest
1.5 inches gained around waist
.25 inches gained on hips
The silver lining? My thighs and arms the same.
Am I frustrated? Oh yes.
6 weeks to get it off, two weeks to put it back on.
It is one of those, "This is so not fair" life moments. It's not like I was going crazy on the eating either. Not totally anyway.
There are a few factors that need to be accounted for.
1. I hurt my back 2 weeks ago. Really hurt it to the point that any movement was duly noted as it would send a shock wave of pain in my lower back and down my leg. This greatly restricted how intense I was able to work out.
2. Hurting my back stressed me out. Emotionally driven eating does not equate to the best, healthiest food choices. But more of the chocolaty, carb laden choices. PLUS stress is a known weight gain inducer.
3. Because I was no longer done eating by 6:30 at night, I found I was staying up later. Not getting enough sleep also causes weight gain.
It's OK. all of those things can be changed. Nothing to get upset about. Yes, I have slipped back a bit, but I conquered this once before I can and will do it again.
On a side note:
I married the BEST man. Because this is my first day back on Burst Cycle, one of the hardest days, a.k.a. the day it becomes reality that you can't have sugar or chocolate, and it also happens to be Family Night, and night in which it is required to contain some form of sugar or chocolate at the end and I was sad about not being able to join in the sugary fun, Kevin decided to join in not having any sugary fun with me.
I am one lucky girl.
