Why I'm cool with the gain - Weigh In
Given the morning after we got back the scale had me up 9 lbs (which I know from past experience is water weight from ungodly amounts of sodium) so getting 8 lbs of the official vacation gain off in in 4 days is awesome. I will take that! That's with only having 4 "formal" workout sessions over our usual 5, my system being completely screwed up with no release until today after weigh in if you get my drift AND a Thanksgiving holiday thrown in there that was much more carbalicious (but not over the top) than our usual Thursday fare. We came back got right back to exercising, eating right and getting in the water. We even stopped at the grocery store on the way home from Memphis after a horrific, long drive to get fruit for the rest of the week for lunches. So I'm officially declaring it a success even if no one else does!
The workouts have been really taking their toll on us this week. It's not like we were inactive on the trip. I don't call walking 4-7 miles per day inactive but there you have it. I have no doubt I'll be back to my low weight and beyond soon. Life is about loosening the reins every now and then and knowing that you have to tighten them right back up and that's what we did. So I'm good with it.
Welp, hope everyone has a great weekend!
