So I gained four pounds last week. To tell the truth, I’m not all that surprised. For a few reasons. To start with, I was feeling under the weather – this led me to exercise far less than I should, and to eat far more than I should, and it all added up. But I’ll take “feeling under the weather” as a good reason, in this case. After all, it hasn’t been all that long since I had my sinus infection, and it also turned into a chase of bronchitis for me. So, yeah. “under the weather”.
Also, if you recall, I lost five pounds at my last weigh-in because I had hardly eaten anything for half the week. This is not a sustainable model for weight loss, and I’m hardly surprised that I regained some of that weight. I’m still down a pound from where I was before I got sick, though, so I’m not disappointed.
Still, no more excuses. Just because I’m not feeling 100% doesn’t mean I can’t stay within my calorie budget. Or that I can’t exercise (I asked the doctor, and she was fine with it as I felt up to it). So I’ll be walking and continuing to do my exercise program and chasing my five-year-old around as much as possible.
