Weigh In Day

Posted on: April 16, 2013

I so wanted to go back to bed after I stepped on the scale and saw that I was up a pound... It’s par for the course during that wonderful time of the month… Last month it didn’t happen and I thought good, I’m ready for this chapter of my life to be over.. Unfortunately, this month is making up for it in water weight and bloating…

No worries, next week I’ll lose 2lbs… or so the pattern has been... Just so frustrating when I worked out like a maniac this week.  I did my Fluidity ballet bar workouts 5 days, used 8lb weights for a good circuit of exercises daily and ran on the trampoline(to protect my knee) every other day…

I chose a very casual look to match my depressed mood.  The skirt is Chaus via ebay(I own an identical one in a larger size and was thrilled to find this one!)  The mocha sweater( via Chadwicks, no longer available)  has a cute hood and purple in the print so I added the shoes and necklace in that shade.  I’ve had these ruffled ballet flats for a few year now and love them as they have a great sole and are by M. Patrick purchased at DSW on clearance.    Aigner purse was thrifted for just $4.  Jean Jacket was thrifted as well…

The purple heart is a charm I bought in NY when I had my store.  I went to BJ’s after my WW meeting and ordered prescription glasses and sunglasses.  I wear contacts when I go out,but prefer glasses for hanging out at home.  You are sure to see those in the future.  I was long overdue for glasses, but kept putting it off as unimportant since I only wore them at home.  I use to wear them to work as contacts are not always comfortable when I have sinus issues,  so I am looking forward to having a choice again!

I should have ironed this skirt, oops!

Linking up with Random Wednesday & What I Wore Wednesday

Dear Readers, I am grateful that my weight gain was not more as in the past it has been up two pounds during my menstrual cycle… I am grateful to be getting new glasses.  I am grateful for my luck when thrifting today.  I am grateful that despite my mood and my lack of sleep(my husband has taken up snoring this week and woke me up 4 times!),  that I still pushed myself to workout this afternoon   I am grateful that my sinuses were much better today!  

Plans for the upcoming week is to continue the exercise, drinking lots of water, increase vegetables and proteins.  I didn’t have the Caprese Salad Tuesday night as life happened and I didn’t make it to the store until very late.  I had a baked potato with cheese as I had 12 points left for the day and that is comfort food for a stressful day!

me too, I call it classic casual! thanks for commenting!

Tracey…let it go, you know the why of it so be content with your hard work. I hate the freaking scale. I say you’re great just because of all of that exercise!! AND a cute outfit to boot.

Oh I know but seeing an increase and listening to my leader infer that I am sabotaging myself since I have been losing same 3lbs for months. she made the entire meeting about it saying we tell ourselves that we will do X when we reach goal.. none of it applied.. I ‘ve just been sick a lot since January and eating carbs during those times and not exercising…

Great outfit Tracy!
Its hard to see the scale go up even if it is one pound. The extra pound won’t stick.

I know think the Boston explosions have left me more sensitive…thanks you!
