Day 42 of my 100 Day Challenge

As of last night at my weigh in, I gained 5.2 pounds over last week’s weigh in.  I am upset by this, more than I can really express.  I have been walking 10,000 steps or more per day and trying to eat well.  I can honestly say after looking back at my food logs, I probably did not have enough veggies and fruits everyday and several days I was slightly below my calorie range (even the 1200 mark, if I’m honest).  I didn’t eat anything crazy this week.  I didn’t have any sodas and was, in fact, pretty proud of the fact that I was hitting 10,000 steps most days including Sunday, which I normally take as a rest day.  I came home, depressed, as you can imagine and promptly started making my meal plan for the coming week.  I normally sit down with everyone and discuss it, but I decided that I couldn’t wait for everyone else, so I started going through the recipe book (I print off recipes and put them in a binder) aside from my cookbooks that I have and started marking stuff and making a grocery list.  I know this is going to help me going into the next week.  I am just having trouble getting past this gain and moving forward.  I have not had a gain like this in some time.  I know I am more than the number on the scale and I need to keep that in mind this week when I am trying to move forward to do what I need to do to be a healthier me.  Anyone have any suggestions on shaking this off?

Here’s what I know I have been doing fairly well:

  1. drinking my water (8 -8oz cups of water or more)
  2. Getting in at least 15 minutes of exercise, but oftentimes more than that.
  3. logging most of what I eat in either WW site or Sparkpeople, but I need to do both

Weigh-in the Thursday before Starting the Challenge: 189.6
Current weigh in: 191.8
Loss: -2.2 pounds
