Tracking: Very, very little and never a full day
Points eaten: more than 21/21 each day, but I don't think terribly more
Activity Points Earned: average about 3 or more per day
Hunger level: never really got a chance to get hungry
Morning Weigh-ins: Sat - down 0.4, Sun - down 2.0, Mon - up 0.4, Tue - down 0.6
overall down 2.6 from last week
Culprit for the weight gain, low hunger levels, fatigue and general yuckiness - a quite early TOM
At least there was a reason behind this past week. It should have been at least another week (I purposely planned my getaways around this). I should have known really ... all the signs were there, I was just in denial.
Despite that, I still had a great weekend which can be summed up like this:
1 great run
1 great bike ride
1 great night of watching UFC
1 great float down the channel
1 great breakfast with family & friends
1 great game of cards (not including the 2 we lost - haha)
= 1 Great Weekend
I was a little disappointed to only get one run in. It was a good one though. I ran 3 miles on the roads near our property which means there was a ton of change in elevation. After breakfast I felt I still had energy to burn so I went for a ride around the "block". The "block" being 5 miles, halfway down a steep hill then gut wrenching climb back up the other side. I definitely look forward to doing that one more often.
Later in the day, despite lots of stretching, if I sat still for any amount of time my hips were super achy and stiff. My husband "banned" me from doing the 9 mile easy run I had planned for Sunday morning. Instead we just did some walking up and down those monster hills near home for the next couple days.
With the arrival of TOM, all my little annoyances from the last week went away. My running tops and bras were no longer cutting off circulation. My pants fit again. That darn scale dropped down over 2 lbs. Ahhh, much better, and improving daily.
This week I will continue tracking points as my weight is still higher than it should be. Plus I'm going to add in a minimum of 10 minutes of weights most days of the week. That's not much, but it's a start. I don't like to miss a run for weights (even though I probably should more often), and since I don't always have a ton of time for super sessions, I figure 10 minutes is doable.
Hope everyone had a great weekend & Monday. Will catch up shortly.
