Yesterday I gained 0.2 lbs. It was one of those small upticks that didn't bother me at all. I figured it was from my strange weekend. I probably hadn't had enough water, and certainly did not move as much on Saturday as typical. I knew I'd made the best choices I could and stuff happens. I moved on.
My eating & exercise were textbook perfect yesterday. I'm doing a low carb plan that allows whole grains. I really felt
Not only was my eating great, I was back on the stair stepper working hard to be more intense. I did a full 20 minutes, not full on all the time, but a definite improvement from the last couple of weeks while I was sick.
I had great expectations this morning as I approached the scales. Imagine my surprise when they were up 0.6. That is a 0.8, nearly a full pound gained in two days!! I don't know why. I think that has me more upset than the gain. I don't know what to do to fix the problem.
All the food I ate yesterday was prepared by me, so I know there wasn't something sneaky in there that wasn't counted. And, since I often eat the same breakfast & lunch during the week because it is easier for me, I'm worried that I'll gain again in the morning. I can't do that. I've worked too hard and too long to see it slip away. It would be one thing if I'd eaten those girl scout cookies, I'm thinking about now. It is a good thing I'm at work and they're at home. I'd make sure I knew why I'd gained in the morning!!
Seriously, although I'm thinking about the cookies, I don't think I'd eat them. I know better, but what I don't know is how to fix this. Any ideas???
