After two weeks at the gym, burning 500+ calories every other day on the elliptical machine (3 - 4 miles), on the circuit of weight training during the off days, eating only whole foods (nothing processed) and watching my caloric and carb intake, I gained a FREAKIN POUND!!!
How can that happen??? I realize muscle weighs more than fat, but I have totally changed my eating habits. There were three afternoons of cake and four mornings of donuts in the office over the past two weeks and I walked away from ALL of them. I was sick for a couple of days and hardly ate anything (but still managed to make it to the gym). I've avoided the vending machine, cut soda out of my diet and have been drinking at least a gallon of water a day (while peeing like a race horse). Somehow I manage to gain a FREAKIN POUND!
On the upside, clothes feel better and I can sleep better. But it's still frustrating. Grrrr! No more scale for me!
