It was bound to happen I guess. I’ve been doing so well for so long and I actually expected it this week since my period was due yesterday. I exercised my arse off last week to try to combat the premenstrual weight gain but obviously it wasn’t enough. And now I don’t have my period anyway, so what’s the deal with that? I fit doesn’t arrive it means my cycle is still out of whack and I wasn’t premenstrual at all which means I’ve got no excuse. Just because I expected it doesn’t mean it’s easy to deal with.
I did use up all of my points last week and even swapped out my exercise points on Friday when I ate a hideous amount of bread. I NEVER swap exercise points. The plan says you’re supposed to be able to but I’ve always though it kind of defeats the purpose and obviously it does. I tried, on a week when I was weak and I won’t be making that mistake again.
I did feel proud of myself for all the exercise I did. My week looked like this:
- Sunday – 1/2hr Biggest Loser Wii Game
- Monday – rest day (well not really rest, but no official exercise because Monday’s are a crazy busy day for me)
- Tuesday- 20mins resistance training and 1/2hr Biggest Loser Wii game
- Wednesday – 1hr Pump class
- Thursday – 1hr Zumba toning class
- Friday – 1hr Aerobics class
- Sat – 1hr Biggest Loser Wii game
And still I end up +300g.WTF? I blame it one the bread. Bloody stupid fucking carbs. I’m henceforth banning myself from all wheat products. Potatoes I can resist. Pasta? meh, take it or leave it most days. But bread, I fucking love bread and last week I tried to reintroduce it in moderation of course and look what happened. It looks like cold turkey is the only way.
Oh and now my back is so sore I can barely reach around to wipe my own arse. Not really conducive to maintaining the exercise routine I wanted. Ho hum. I shall do what I can and see what happens on weigh in day.
