Oh...I wasn't supposed to weigh in today, was I?
I know I said I wasn't going to weigh in. Then we implemented the new plan continuing with the slight calorie raise for 2 weeks and walking every hour for 3 minutes this week. I burned 6225 calories this week...2025 over my calorie burn. I had to know what the deal was scale wise.
Magic number? I BARELY eeked out a pound. Which puts me almost at what I was the first Saturday of the month. Better than nothing I suppose but nothing to really celebrate since it basically puts this month at a draw.
The Mr and I talked and now we're going to go the oppose way, we'll begin lowering calories. Now this may seem like a no brainer to most people but we've tried that before and it did nothing. Then we'd up calories and lose. That was before we started doing this new HIIT training so raising seemed to be logical over lowering. I've tried that...doesn't seem to work so we'll go the other way and see if that does something. It's the only thing we can do right now. We'll be doing a more detailed analysis at some point during our overly busy weekend (I hope).
Sorry if I let anyone down by weighing in but I had to know. Actually once I declared I broke up with the scale, like a crazed stalkery girlfriend, I became obsessed with it and was weighing in every day. I might typically sneak a peek once during the week but this was that freaky "I'm by the scale, might as well step on it" thing and so did the Mr. So we're breaking up with our break up of the scale. Once a week like we've done for 3 years. I'm not going to quit what works. It'd be nice if the measuring tape would cooperate too but it's been spitting at me for months. Fingers crossed this works. I'll be honest, I don't think I'll be doing treadmill EVERY hour because my hips and joints hurt so bad I had to stop my workout Thursday because I couldn't walk. So I will do some kind of on my feet busy work at the top of the hour with treadmill thrown in here and there. I can't risk an injury or not being able to workout because of that extra. (By the way, I DID row in place of the workout I had to quit so I didn't quit and do nothing. Lest you think I was a wuss!)
Hope everyone has a great weekend!
