Ok, so maybe weighing myself on Saturday morning isn’t the best idea. Not that I went crazy on Friday night or anything, it’s just that it can make or break your weekend. In the case of this weekend, the weigh-in created a tiny crack that grew into a deep and cavernous ravine in my weekend. I felt like I was really on target last week, eating right (ok with the occasional treat, but on the whole good clean eating). I did Body Revolution Monday-Saturday and got through the workouts good calorie burns. THEN this morning I got on the scale and I’m up 2 pounds! Now, I really want to blame this on Mother Nature bringing her monthly gift to me first thing this morning, and it seems most likely that that plays a definitive role in my gain, but still. Not a good start to the weekend. The silver lining I’m clinging to is that those two pounds are lean mean calorie torching muscle.
That said I got up, ate a balanced breakfast and headed to the gym where I burned off about 500 calories. So the plan for the week is to follow my JillianMichaels.com eating plan to the letter (I’ve been picking and choosing thus far so I suppose trying complete obedience is worth a try). Not that I haven’t been diligently logging my calories, I’ve just not been using all her recipes because as someone who lives alone, that creates a LOT of leftovers and means purchasing a huge quantity of food. But I managed to do some swapping out to decrease the grocery bill and will throw some of the leftovers in the freezer for later. So here’s hoping that I can come back from this weeks misstep, it’s a do or die moment because my DietBet ends in 10 days! It’s my first one so I would really love to win it! I’m going to try to post some of the best recipes as the week goes AND on Wednesday I’m going to Jillian’s live show, Maximize Your Life so come back for my review! Gonna be a good week people! Hope yours is too!
