If you've ever traveled on business, you understand how hard it is to stick to routine, especially a new one you're trying to implement. My company feeds us well at these meetings and it's hard to walk away from such good fare. I didn't exercise at all while I was away, and I felt the ramifications of that decision Monday morning.
I weighed 139.6 lbs.
Are you kidding me?!
What a bummer.
My exercise routine was great last week. My diet (while I did stay within my points) could have been better.
I had an epiphany when I was in Dallas. I realized that when I eat poorly, it negates all the hard work I do at the gym. I knew that before, but I really felt it last weekend.
I've heard figures like losing weight is 60% diet and 40% exercise; for me, I feel it's more like 80% diet and 20% exercise. I actually lose more weight faster when I don't work out and just watch my diet.
Regardless, I resumed my routine yesterday with circuit training. Well, this morning I weighed myself and...
I know that weight fluctuates every day due to hormones, muscle repair, and hydration. At this point, I don't care. I'll take what I can get!
