Yesterday I was also promoted to head baker in my office. It's an inside joke but I did bring in oatmeal raisin and funfetti cake cookies today. I've eaten too many. :( And there are a bunch more goodies upstairs in honor of leap day! Oh my! It's going to be a bit of a high carb day. Uh oh!
We had a mandated 8 AM start today because of a scheduled power outage. I took advantage of the extra hour and went to the gym. Ran 3 miles and burned about 500 cals!
But the big news is that since last wed I am down 3.2 lbs. Now that's something huh?
I'm pleased with that. A bit disappointed because yesterday was my weekly low of 179.8. And I thought I was very well behaved yesterday. But I did have a fat burn type workout and sometimes my muscles retain water. I won't know because I'm stuffing my face with carbs today so tomorrow I may weigh more than this. :( I never went above that 183.6 last week. So that was a good thing. But I'm really close to my reset maintenance weight which is about 177-178. So this week is going to prove to be challenging I think.
My fat % was estimated at 29.3% last week I believe. I know for a fact I was in the 29's and I was disappointed about it. I didn't take my measurement first thing in the AM last wednesday. So that may have threw it off a bit but I don't know in which direction. However, 28.6% is the answer today! Woo hoo. I will say that this is generally the number I get when I'm in my maintenance weight range. So now the struggle to drop lower will begin. I've seen 28.3 and maybe a 28 once? But it will be hard to get down there. We'll see what happens. I'd just like to have these exact same numbers next week. I'd be ok with that! :)
So in other news I've been really struggling with my horse. So much so that I have 2 plans. We both take a month off. Or I take a month off and he goes to my trainer's for a tune up. I can't decide. The tune up will be expensive. And I just got a $600 vet bill for him due to urine crystals. Blah! So I'm undecided. He can't go till after March 15th due to my trainer's vacation. But I still do need to decide. I really want us to get back on track, but I'm not sure this is the answer. Do I really spend more money on training that I might undo? I have a lot to think about.
And currently I'm thinking about new shoes for the gym. . . I'm searching for bargains online. I would like some pink, but I'll take a good deal. Not having much luck :(
