I’d originally planned to post pictures and measurements, but I hit the gym TWICE today and I’m too exhausted to move.
I weighed in this morning at 134.4, down 0.8 lbs from Monday. This seems like a lot, but considering I gained almost 6 lbs during a five day trip to NYC, I’m sad the number isn’t moving faster (which would indicate water weight). This leads me to believe I really did pack on some “insulation” during those few days.
Mathematically, it doesn’t add up (considering what I ate versus the excruciating amount of walking I did), but I guess that’s just my body.
Here’s how I did today:
Yeah, I definitely overdid it. An hour of elliptical before work, two hours after, and just one short walk during the day.
Keep in mind my Jawbone Up tracks the movements of my arm as “steps,” so the three hours elliptical make up a HUUUUGE part of those 33k steps. That’s why those steps don’t actually count to my workout, because the mobile app recognizes that I’ve already given myself the credit from the elliptical exercises logged. I swear, I’m not walking laps all day, every day. Hahaha!
Here’s hoping the scale is a little better to me in the AM!
Bon appetit, my friends!
P.S. For those curious about my breakdown of nutrients:
I normally have a protein shake (whey protein, banana, strawberries, and almond milk) for breakfast, a pear or apple for a morning snack, a giant salad (no dressing) with grilled chicken for lunch, hummus and carrots for a mid-afternoon snack, grilled chicken or steak (or fish) for dinner with tons of veggies (cooked in salsa), and then a daily cheat of one glass of red wine (Malbec) and 1-3 pieces of chocolate.
Normally equates to 1,300-1,500 calories.
