This week’s The Scale Doesn’t Lie. I crushed it at the gym. I was there 7 days in a row, got in all my strength workouts as well as my cardio and maintained 10K steps a day.
The problem is when you look at MyFitnessPal. That’s where the story of why I only lost .6 of a pound this past week. No it’s not because I overate or binged. Not at all.
I have to admit My Life Coach Tara warned me that this would happen. “This” I’ll get to in a minute.
It’s not that I didn’t want to take her advice, not at all. I was afraid. I was afraid that I would do just that. Overeat or get back into my binge eating habits. What I mean by that is, I was not eating enough. My net calories at the end of the day were well below 1200 some times in the negative.
I was working so hard but not refueling my body. Now don’t get me wrong, I feel great. I really do. I’m in a mode now where I’d rather be in the gym than anywhere else. I know silly right.
What I can’t grasp is eating more. I’m scared of it because it’s where it got me to where I was before. Everyone will tell you eat less move more. I was doing that. But what I was doing was basically not eating at all when you really look at my numbers. I was running the gas tank on fumes or nothing at all. If I continue to do this, like an engine on a car that I will run out and break down.
I’m making one of my goals this next week to kinda take it easy on the workout side, maybe not get in all my 10K steps but I’m still going. I’m going to do my best to balance it out that I’m still at the end of the day as close to 1200 net cals as I can be. This will make me have to be a little creative as i don’t want to resort to junk type foods to fill up the tank and hit the 1200 net.
Why I didn’t listen to Tara? It’s not that I didn’t listen. She knew I was. In this process and in her coaching it’s not her decision it our decision on how what we do affects ourselves. She doesn’t judge me. It’s that I was scared. I defiantly listened. That’s why I’m changing this up a bit and we’ll both figure this out together. It’s what we do.
That my friends is exactly what the title of these posts are all about “The Scale Doesn’t Lie”
