Now I am not going to jump to any final conclusions why my weight had changed this time and did not after last week's dinner. There are a few factors that could be considered in play this time around. I had been doing a ton of cardio around the time of last week's dinner. The reason was because I was traveling and I had not seen a weight room since the Tuesday before. Which means I had gone almost a week of just doing straight cardio. And without building muscle and doing just cardio, it could of made it easier for my weight to stay the same. That brings me to the current Thanksgiving Dinner that took place yesterday. After not being able to lift weights for a while, you could only imagine how much I wanted to get back into the weight room. And the last 2 out of 3 days have been weight lifting days for me. Those weight lifting sessions, combined with the more than normal eating amount yesterday, could have led to the weight gain. I am not sure if these factors are enough to explain this morning's outcome but I just wanted to bring them up. Who knows maybe I just ate more yesterday than I did last Saturday and that is why I weighed in more this morning. In that case, I could use this as a reminder of how fast things can change, if I let my guard down just for a little bit.
Regardless, the damage has been done and it is time to move on. I ate healthy the entire day today and got my cardio workout in as well. I am still feeling great and I am not going to let this small change in weight affect my attitude or determination. There is much more work to be done before my wedding day arrives. And I am extremely motivated to push forward! Here I come 222 lbs.....one step at a time!!
With that being said, let's get to the details of the day:
