Reboot Day 5...

Well I missed my weigh in today....darn!! I will weigh in tomorrow. I, however and not expecting good results.

What did I do this weekend? There was lots of food involved. Saturday I was so tired from waking up at 4:30 in the morning that I didn't work out. My nephew was here so we went to the movies with him! We went to a place where you can eat and watch a movie at the same time, he wanted to see Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 so that is what we did. It was pretty good I do have to say.
I didn't make good food choices.  But we made funny faces together!
Saturday night was a birthday dinner with My Lovely. It was nice to get together with her! We have both been so busy that we haven't been able to get together for weeks! We had a delicious cold cheese dip as an appetizer and I chose Cobb salad for dinner. Then she ordered desert...of course I ate it, we shared. Too much food this weekend.

Sunday I did work out. I did the elliptical for 20 minutes, ran on the treadmill for 30 minutes, and then did some strength training with my resistance bands. I so didn't want to work out but I forced myself to do so. I'm glad I did!
I was somewhere around 500 calories burned during my workout.

Today was super busy, I didn't have time to work out today. I had to get paperwork to my accountant so we could get our taxes filed. I put it off til the last minute and it took me too long this morning.

Food day was great until around 9:30. Then I caved and had 2 cookies and a bowl of cereal. Talk about sabotage. So I finished the day with way to many calories, 1576.

On the upside, I did log my food today for the first time in a month. I was planning on doing protein shakes for a few days but I am out of protein powder. There is some on order.

OK Anyway, tomorrow is a new day! And I really need to get serious again and stop feeling sorry for myself.

I 'm a little confused by this weight gain. I haven't been eating great. But I know I am not eating 7000 calories a day. Hell I know I'm not even eating 3500 calories a day. I am not getting in my water and I have been working out all week. For 2 weeks now and I am gaining. WTH?

My routine has changed so much its horrible and my results are totally showing it. So, I am going to bed so I can start again tomorrow. My eyes are closing too.

Sleep well everyone! And thanks for stopping by! :)


  1. The more you exercise, the more water your body needs. You have to drink, drink, drink. Weird, but you have to drink water to release it from your body. I always weigh more when I train because my muscles hold onto water. I suspect if you drink water HARD for a few days, and eat well, you'll be pleasantly surprised by your weigh-in.

  2. So nice that you spent some quality time with your nephew!

    Getting back to exercise is a big part of the reboot. Now you just have to get the food back under control! (As if that's easy.)

  3. Yes Water! And stress makes you weigh more...your body resists and resists...and your reboot might be making it panic and really hold on tight. Just keep doing what you are doing and you'll see those pounds start to melt away again.

  4. Same story here...I need a good exercise routine that I can stick to. Winter is coming!
