I was up again this morning. That is going to get frustrating *really* fast. Again, though, I know I have not consumed enough “extra” calories to truly justify these pounds. I still find it completely irritating, though.
So, here is today’s plan of action workout:
-lunge with shoulder cross
-plank walk overs with platform
-lat pull down
-tricep pushdowns (over-hand and under-hand grip)
-side planks with rotation
That should give me about an hour or so worth of gym time this evening. I am looking forward to it…all except that Mondays are always packed. I suppose it is because people eat garbage over the weekend and rush to the gym Monday to try and control the damage. Maybe.
For breakfast today I had a small banana and vanilla yogurt with almonds and cinnamon. A snack is in order here in a few…and lunch later. I bought fresh kale yesterday and some colorful peppers, so I am excited for lunch. Very excited!
What is your day going to look like today?
If you’re doing that sort of exercise a lot, you’re probably gaining muscle – so try not to worry about the odd gain here and there! Over the last 8 weeks I’ve only lost 4lbs on my scale at home, but I had my body composition measured and I’d actually lost 16lbs of pure fat, and gained 12lbs of muscle – and my body shape has completely changed. So stick with it!
That is a pretty typical workout for me. I know part of that gain (if not all) is muscle. It does; however, still bother me a little. I’m not totally freaking out, but a plan of action to get things moving downward again will help prevent a mental meltdown. 🙂
Denise and I are going to do another fit eval on Wednesday night (which means measurements and such), so I am excited to see how those numbers have changed.
Thanks for the encouragement!
