Weigh day today ... gained .4 of a pound.... it was not a happy morning for me... but much like life ... we must take bitter with the sweet and realize that the human body will do what it needs to do during this process... I reviewed my food logs and realized I did not get all my water in this week... and I skipped 4 meals during the week for various reasons... the IDEAL SOLUTION to a PROBLEM is figuring out how the problem might have occurred and developing a plan with out panic or drama... SO with out either panic or drama... this week features.. making sure all water is in.. No over exercising... ( walking twice a day once is enough and no walking if I swam that day) ... making sure I get in all my meals on the 5&1 .. I was going to go as low carb as possible on the plan but then I started thinking if 4 out of seven days in the past week I skipped a meal that means I ate under 800 calories that day which is NOT good.. so rather than restrict myself this week I wonder if hovering at 1000 would not be better... just to see what happens since I have never done that... and keeping my carbs right at 95-100 rather than 85 or below.. any thoughts would be appreciated..
I talked with a trainer at the gym and he said he
would not train me until I was in maintenance because he feels that for my
calorie intake that working out is not in my best interest that alternating
between swimming and walking is much better and less stressful until I am done
with the 5 & 1. He even suggested if I reach a point where I stop losing
to take a month break from medifast ... increase my calorie intake and exercise
for that month... so my body can :" heal" or adjust to the New weight.. then go
back on the program for a more accelerated weight loss...don't think I will be
doing that but it is a thought down the road... It seems I do not plateau I
gain .4 of a pound and then drop again... Back in August I went through the same
thing... and that time I kept the carbs under 85 and that was all I did.. and
the following week I had a 2 pound loss...
Well.. time to button up.. and get on with the
