You knew it was coming…
I GAINED A POUND
Truth is, I’ve likely gained more like 3 or 4 but after a morning hike up Thunderbird Park Mountain on Saturday – I was only one pound up from last week’s weigh in. Why have I gained?
Because I quit – plain and simple.
I know – I’m not supposed to quit – but I have no better excuse. I’ve eaten like I’m on no diet – and I only worked out three days for the week. The truth is, on the day’s that I did workout, I ate like I burned 10k calories – even though I actually only burned about 500-600 per workout.
Regardless – the end result is that I gained weight. In fact, I was so ashamed of my gain – that I didn’t email my results to the Biggest Loser Blog Edition…
What am I doing to fix this?
Great question. I did join a gym that a co-worker goes to so that we can work out during lunch hours together. I also went hiking Saturday with a good friend of mine (Thanks again, Paul! I had a blast). I’m working on getting my calorie burn up, but to be honest, the real issue is:
I quit logging my food
That’s a cardnal sin for weight loss! Logging every bite, every time is crucial to keeping the calories down. How do I get back on THAT horse? I’m up for suggestions – I know many of my readers have successfully lost weight and kept it off – how did you do it? Assuming you logged your food – what kept you to doing it?
