Gaining to Lose

For the record, I’d like to state how shitty I think it is that muscle weighs more than fat. I’ve been eating really well over the last few days, as well as working out more than usual, and I’m actually gaining a bit of weight every day. I know that this will eventually begin to reverse, but it’s such a bummer in the morning to get on the scale and see that yesterday’s hard work didn’t pay off in numbers.

Today’s Weight: 159.0 lbs

Today’s Mood: Pretty good. Had a lovely evening at home with my boyfriend last night, and a nice morning, as well. I managed to wake up about 20 minutes earlier than normal, and got in some housework before going to work, where I’ve already taken care of a couple of major issues. Now to start working on some bigger ones, though. It’s my boss’ first day back at work, so I’m waiting for the rest of the on-site staff to freak out and the troubleshooting to begin. Guess that means I should get my oatmeal in now, eh?

Yesterday I ran 2.2 miles at a rate of 10 minutes and 22 seconds per mile, and also did my daily arm workout. Still no ab work, and I’m still waiting on my Zumba workout set to get here. UPS tracking says it should be here tomorrow, and I can’t wait to get to dance my butt off (literally). I’m heading out to trivia night tonight, but in the interest of not gaining any unnecessary weight, I’ll be drinking seltzer with lime (my favorite non-alcoholic drink, btw). Guess I’ll have to get my run in before trivia, and maybe work my abs and arms today at lunch time. That shouldn’t be too tough to accomplish.

    I have a word of wisdom from that famous Chinese chow philosopher, “Caninefuscious.” — “It is well know that the most important calesthetic in weight loss are horizontal pushes from table.”
