So I am a tad frustrated but I know that it is probably muscle or muscle bloat that I have going on. That and the fact (TMI warning) that I havent gone to the bathroom in like 3 days. I took my Healthe Cleanse again last night so hopefully that helps.
Here is what I did yesterday. I ran 4.5 miles at a leisurely 5.0 mph. I like to listen to my zumba music and do arm movements with the songs which also help to elevate my heartrate.
Then I had a killer RPM class. Eric threw in a new song which I LOVED. It was an american classic rock song that had me singing the way thru.
I ended up burning 1192 calories so I am obviously getting the calorie burn.
And yesterday I did good with my food too.
Breakfast- smoothie with peanut butter
Lunch- celery, scallions, roast beef, 2 hard boiled eggs, hummus
Snack- pretzels, clean chips, a few semi sweet chocolate chips
Dinner- a very small piece of roast beef and a piece of string cheese
My favorite jeans that I wore yesterday are a bit bigger today. Not sure if they stretched out but I am having to pull them up a bit.
And my back is even more sore then what it was yesterday from Wednesday with Eric. Oh man! He said it was the sandbag and the upright rows that did it.
So my weight gain could be from lactic acid build up in my legs from the running and RPM yesterday. It could be from muscle bloat in my sore back. It could be that I am gaining muscle...not sure.
And I know I should look at the NSV's over the scale but it is still frustrating when you are doing everything right and the number is still going UP!!
This weekend will be a good recovery weekend for me. Tomorrow we have a Christmas party. I am going to have to eat before I go because nothing there is healthy.
Sunday I will probably do some Zumba at home. Just light work. Heck I might even break out my P90X2 yoga to do it. I havent done that in a while and it would probably be great to stretch the muscles out.
What are your plans over the weekend? Are you going to fit in exercise? Or take a weekend off?
