Mulling It Over - Weigh In
The Mr says I'm not eating enough. I made a conscious effort to cut calories the past month or so and what has it gotten me? Nothing. Matter of fact, you know when I hit the 200 lbs lost mark originally? Christmas Eve. Yep, almost 2 solid months ago. When did I cut my calories? January 2nd after we got back from Chicago. When did I lose 2 lbs in a week during that time? When my calories were the highest for that week.
His calories are consistently higher than mine by quite a bit so maybe he's on to something. All I know is I'm friggin' SICK AND TIRED of hovering around the 300's. Of course my first instinct is to do some stupid fad crap or to severely cut my calories but I refuse to give in to that way of thinking. If I logically think about it, not only did I burn 4350 calories but that doesn't include what it takes just to keep this machine hummin' and our workouts are HARD. I mean hello, if an hour of Tae Bo doesn't cut the mustard anymore and I'm pushing myself to still burn 800-1000 calories per cardio then I'm pushing like I haven't pushed before.
So I shall give this a go and see what happens knowing that it takes a solid 3 weeks for my body to register results and pray that God, the universe, Mother Nature or whatever deity it takes is going to reward me for my hard work and fueling my body properly. I'll keep on the water and dammit even if Aunt Flo is scheduled for a visit next week I am going to do everything humanly possible to reclaim my 200 lbs lost title. At this point, it's a mental boost I desperately need.
Hope everyone has a great weekend!
