please join my FACEBOOK page, i post lots of updates there.
Today I decided to stick to a proper portion size (1/2 cup) on my oatmeal and it was just the right amount. When I run out of this cinnabon creamer I won’t be adding that to it anymore, too much sugar and calories. just didn’t want to waste food and money by throwing it out. Almost out of dates and pecans and wont be adding that anymore either. soon will just be the oatmeal, raisins, protein powder, cinnamon and nutmeg. Anyway, I didn’t workout yesterday, my sleeping was really OFF.
I gained 2.5 lbs since Sunday, my weight is 262.5 .
I don’t know the full reasons why. I’ve been trying to inspect my behavior to get to the reasons.
I’m guessing maybe between a little alcohol consumption on Monday night, too large portions on Sunday (even though my total daily calories are not high, Sunday was 1800, monday was around 1600, tuesday was 1200, ), irregular sleep, maybe that’s the cause.
I guess I’m just confused cause everyone says lower calories in, plus exercising should result in weight loss. But I haven’t ate too high calories and I exercised 6 out of 7 days last week. I don’t want to go on a starvation mode strict diet, that can wreck havoc on your metabolism and actually cause your body to hold on to fat, but it’s tempting. I don’t want to OVER TRAIN by doing 2 hours of cardio, but it’s tempting. I’m feeling like I need to do smething drastic to cause that weight to drop.
I’m going to be making some changes for the better hopefully. Since I’m addicted to the internet and that tends to keep me up all night, I’m thinking of having my friend Angela take away my laptop for a couple weeks so I can get regular sleep. See if that changes anything. Also, even though it’s REALLY hard, I’m going to try not to drink alcohol for a couple of weeks and see if that makes a difference.
It’s just frustrating to think I’m doing what I think is right and I GAINED weight. I was doing really well the past 6 weeks with this same lifestyle and I didn’t gain anything and was losing weight so i just don’t know what’s the difference. If I knew for sure what caused the weight gain , I would feel better. Last time I gained weight, it made sense cause I was coming on my period. I’m not coming on my period this time, so I’m just confused.
