As most of you know, I have been under the weather. I have still been forcing myself to go to water aerobics 3 days a week. Yesterday I did 1 hour of aerobics, where we jogged a mile, then stayed and swam (snorkel & mask) 2000 feet and did 300 stomach crunches. Not sure but I think that the aerobics has actually made the pain worse. Swimming and crunches don't hurt but the class exercises do. I think the water resistance on my foot is too much and I am feeling it in the evenings. OUCH! Surgery is still on the schedule for Oct 4th. My good foot is getting better:)
Anyway, that's not what this post is about. I had a really hard time with STRESS at my weigh in's, til I changed my goal weight magic number. So after I met the number, I thought I would have less stress. WRONG! Now every Thursday night I try to find the lightest weighing clothes to wear. I still want to loss another 10 pounds below my WW goal weight. I have even gone as far as to take ALL my jewelry of to get that extra .2 pounds.
Well not tonight! With the weather getting cooler and wanting to remove that extra stress. I decided what the heck! I am sick to death of wearing the same ugly clothes every time. WHY did I get these cute clothes if I am not going to wear them. So I put on my heavy LONG jeans and off to the meeting I went. With my mind set to having a BIG gain! Even had a bet with Clay that it would be like 5 lbs.
See last Thursday was the UTE football game, so I weighed in that morning. (which I always weigh less in the mornings, DUH!) So let me see how many excuses I can come up with to my mental weight gain. 1..muscle from swimming, 2..water from the salty popcorn every night, 3...the pizza I ate at the game, 4..night vs day; I was weighing in, 5..not eating enough, cause I have been laid up, 6..wearing heavy clothes, 7..not tracking, etc... YOU GET THE PICTURE!
In my mind I thought I blew it this week, so I might as well go out in style! Well I was up, but only by 1.6 pounds. My leader said with the jeans, and the time of day the weigh in was compared to last week, that I more than likely DID NOT gain this week. REALLY??? Bring on the PIZZA!
Oh well at least I can wear my cute clothes now on Thursday nights and feel good doing it! We have another home game this Saturday afternoon. I will be packing and sneaking some healthy food in, as I root for my UTAH UTES!!
