I work out and I work out...
I am not.
But a gal can only take SO much...
So yesterday I did Ripped.
I had my normal lunch. Some baby carrots, hummus, roast beef, two hard boiled eggs and an english muffin with some natural peanut butter.
Then that night I went for a 4 mile run before going for a walk with K. Then K and I went for a 3.6 mile walk SO that makes for a total of 7.6 miles for me yesterday. Calories burned on my run/walk: 1022
When I got home I took a hot shower, drank a lot of water, had some whole wheat saltine crackers with my homemade salsa and a little bit more roast beef and hummus.
I also did another wrap last night too which is why I was drinking all the water.
This morning I gained a half pound!! (Bangs head on table)
I am HOPING this is "bloat" from the wrap. I didnt take pictures this morning of my stomach because I figured I would wait 3 days and take a final picture. Plus I really didnt see too much change.
But how can I work out, eat clean and still gain a half pound?
Maybe it is muscle bloat too from the running. Or swelling I should say. I am VERY sore today. It has been a while since I have run. And I have to start running to prepare for the upcoming half marathon in October.
But I am still very frustrated.
I know I shouldnt let the scale dictate how I feel. But it still does. Not as much as it USED to, but it does.
I did pick myself up and headed to the basement to do my Ripped for the day.
Now I am enjoying some warm oats for breakfast.
And tonight I will take out my anger at the gym.
Running. CX. Body Flow. RPM.
I am going to make my body HURT.
And we will just have to wait until tomorrow to see what the scale has to say about that.
Have a great Tuesday everyone!
