Well I just wanted to share even though I have been maintaining my weight for almost 5 years there are occasions I feel spooked in regards to the scale and feel I'm not doing this right! and yes, I know, its daft that I could get thrown like this, but hey I'm human and not perfect (well, not all of the time LOL
I'm a daily weigher, I like trends and data... I am well used to fluctuations - I can bounce around my goal range by 1 to 2lbs easily in any given day or week but I always, always settle at my happy numbers of 125-126lbs. I go back to that within 2 days of seeing any spike.
Except this week....
This week its settling at 128-129 and it has been for 5 days.
That in itself is rare and in fact downright strange.... (and yes, I even checked the batteries on my scale, just in case LOL)
So it got me thinking, what's different this week? well, not much actually! but then I thought, oh yeah, I have been doing extra walks because its been nice outdoors... plus I wore a pair of trainers the other day which after the 1st mile started cutting into my heels so I practically limped all the way home! The next day my both calves were aching badly (from hobbling on my tip toes for a mile I would guess!). Anyway, this is probably what's causing the spike in weight. I don't like it because it's not happened in an age, but its an explanation.
(I know for sure I haven't eaten over my TDEE, in fact I've been cutting because we have a break coming up and that's how I plan for extra eating whilst away. And of course like anyone else I'll see spikes after high sodium meals, higher carb days for around 2 days but this is the first time in probably a few years that I've seen 4lb
s higher... (granted 4lbs is not much at all, I know that's what y'all will be saying, but I'm petite and if that were true gain then I would feel it in my clothes)
I am basically just having a wee rant here
And maybe my sharing my thoughts will help or ring true with someone else.
Happy Friday Eve everyone
