Could be worse

Taking the day off exercising, mostly because a headache suddenly came up.

Haven't lost any weight in the last three days, despite the fact that I've done 5 hours of cardio in that period of time.

On the other hand, haven't gained weight either. (Gained and lost 2 pounds last week, which threw off my totals.) It could be worse.

Last week's totals:
Avg. minutes/day exercising: 80
Avg. weight change: +.06

On the down side, I just did 22 full push ups. Which means, according to the 100 push ups website, that I can go back to week 4 column 2. Wah. Don' wanna.

I've decided to compromise with my inner slug and do week 4, column 1.

I dunno. I don't really trust daily weigh ins. I swear my weight changed 5 pounds from one day to the next when I weighed myself two days in a row last week.

The better question is whether your clothes are fitting differently? Maybe?

I had a few weeks where I was doing Jillian workouts or 30-40 minutes on the elliptical 4-5 times a week. And eating around 1200 calories. And I didn't gain weight, which is at least a step in the right direction, but I wasn't losing much either. But then I started seeing a **little** more love from the scale...it is just sooo slow.

I got serious this past week about not eating wheat. Ate rice and potatoes and even potato chips instead. Hey, I had to give up Cheez-Its -- got to have SOMETHING crunchy and salty once in a while. To go with the chocolate. Didn't really exercise. It was a busy week.

I lost five pounds. Surprised the hell out of me. And I feel really really good.

Of course, taken as a percentage of the number of pounds I NEED to lose, five is not a big deal. Still.

I spend more hours than Madonna working out and gain 1/2 a pound. BCB cuts out wheat and loses 5 pounds in a week.

On a totally different topic, I once read a blog post that described over 100 ways to get rid of a dead body so that it was never found again...

Hmmn ...

Did I mention I ate copious amounts of potato chips and chocolate?

Next week I'm going to learn to wield a whip. I know, you think I'm kidding. Stay tuned.

I am also against the daily weigh ins. I weigh myself once a week and that's enough misery for me.

Keep at it, Merry. You'll see results soon.
