I’ve probably mentioned it ad nauseam, but somehow I’ve gained like 10 pounds in the past few months. Okay, 10 is an exaggeration, but something like eight. The most frustrating part of it all is that I really haven’t done anything different in those past few months. Aside from train for a 10 mile race. Yes, I am the weirdo that actually gains weight when I train for longer distance races.
I am really not happy with the way I look and the way my clothes fit and I’m formally (as formally as announcing it here is) recommitting to getting back to my goal weight which is 140. I’m 5’7 for reference. Now mind you, I haven’t been at my goal weight since before I got pregnant with Alexander but I was hovering around 148 for a while, pre-weight gain, and while it wasn’t perfect, I wasn’t upset there.
So here’s the million and one things that I’ve thought about to lose the weight:
1. 21 Day Sugar Detox (simliar to the Whole30)
2. Counting calories a la My Fitness Pal. I do this now but only sporadically.
4. 21 Day Fix
5. If It Fits Your Macros type of eating
So I haven’t really come up with a plan for losing the weight yet, but one thing I know that I need to do is weigh myself regularly. And I’ve been doing that with the Beets Blu bluetooth scale. This scale is really cool because it not only tracks your weight, but it also tracks your body fat and muscle mass. And best of all, it sends all the info to your phone via bluetooth. I love a good graph!
I am ever so-slightly more muscle than fat, so I guess that’s good?
The scale is a tad on the pricey side but I really like the charting feature. It makes it really easy to see progress (or lack there of). So while I haven’t quite figure out how to lose this bothersome 15 lbs, I have at least admitted they’re there and acceptance is the first step, right?
