14 Weeks Out Update!!
Two weeks ago I posted my before pics for my new goal that I am working towards. Here is a quick update on my progress so far....
The pick on the left (black sports bra) is from this morning and the pic on the right is from 2 weeks ago.
I am SUPER excited about my results in just 2 weeks!
I have been really sticking to my nutrition, even giving myself some planned cheat meals, and I'm putting my all into my training.
Now I know what you are probably wondering...
Did the scale go down?
In all honesty?
Not really. In fact about a week ago I was UP 3 pounds!
I was getting anxious, thinking I needed to change what I was doing. But then I took a step back and decided that I needed to give this a good 2 weeks and let the pics show my progress, not the scale.
And as you can see, I AM leaning out, despite what the scale is saying.
When I weighed myself this morning, I was back to where I started 2 weeks ago. So that is telling me I am going in the right direction.
As for WHY the scale went up?
Well, I do have a theory on that one.
I have said many times before, if I don't have my nutrition planned out (and again, I'm NOT talking about a diet), then I either go two ways.
- I eat anything and everything! Usually a bunch of crap or just a lot of food in general.
- I hardly eat anything, just enough to curb any hunger. It's not that I'm trying to not eat, but just like anyone, I can get very busy and by the time I realize I'm hungry, I probably missed about 2-3 meals. That is NOT good.
So I am thinking this time around I was not eating enough prior to starting my nutrition and therefore, because I had increased the amount of food/calories, I gained scale pounds. But then my metabolism realized I wasn't trying to starve myself anymore (even unintentionally) and kicked in resulting in the 3 pound loss to back to starting weight.
I know as the weeks go on, not only will I see results with the pics but also the scale.
I just have to be patient and stick with it.
I have 14 weeks to meet my goal and I'm so happy with how everything is going so far.
