Taking My Own Advice- Weigh In
I'm trying to be zen about this. For those who didn't read last night's food journal, I've been having immense stress issues this past week to the point of heart palpitations. I know stress that extreme produces all of those weird "would you like me to hold onto those fat cells for you?" chemicals (which I always thought was a load of chit but there is data and blah blah blah). It's my first week back at "full throttle" workouts. I burned 4500 calories this past week. My calories averaged out to 2325 daily for the week. Based on that formula I found, I should technically be able to eat 2600 calories and lose weight but that is just way too high for my brain to compute so I chose 2300. So I think between those 3 things, I was destined for a pooper this week.
I'm giving my body another week to adjust because I'm going to take the advice that any medical professional would tell me or that I would tell someone else in the same situation, it takes at least 2 weeks for your body to adjust to a new change and I had 2 new changes last week. So I'm going to be a good girl, not freak out about it, make my to do list so I can get the stress monkey off of my back and move forward into this week with a clean slate and solid plan. I refuse to let this beat me.
Have a great weekend everyone!
