I can't say this wasn't expected. I had two birthdays to attend this weekend, so I indulged. It's okay - I had been going almost 4 weeks straight without cheating once, so in an effort not to become stagnant, I let myself have this weekend. I knew the consequences, and I'm holding myself accountable by weighing in.

I followed the diet to a T yesterday and have meal prepped for the entire week. I hit the gym HARD this morning. I have no intentions of stopping, even with this setback. I've been working out far too hard and eating way too well for the results not to start showing on my body. I've yet to see them, but hopefully in the next few weeks the weight will start dropping off. I'm not sure what else I can do to my diet and exercise plan to make this any more effective, so I'm just going to stay the course. I've started adding more cardio to my routine... Hoping last week's gain was muscle weight. Also hoping part of this week was muscle weight, but I know part of it was the food and drinks I indulged in.

We will see. I've just got to keep moving forward and in the next few weeks I should start to see differences.

I knew it was coming. I haven't strayed from my diet. I worked really, really, really hard at the gym last week. I got up today and killed it again.

I'm assuming that this is water weight, or muscle weight. Either way, I refuse to be discouraged. I am starting to notice little changes. More muscle tone. I have increased my weights and have turned up the resistance during cardio. I can go faster, longer.

The last time I took my measurements was September. I will try to remember to check them tonight when I get home to see what they are now. Maybe the inches lost will reflect muscle gain.

Either way, I know I can get there. I've done it before, and I'll do it again. This little setback, although frustrating, isn't going to stop me. This is Day 1 of Week 4 of my new lifestyle, and I have to say, 11.6 lbs in 3 weeks still isn't half bad. I just need to stay the course and remember why I get up every morning to do this.

Have a great week everyone!

This morning I didn't realize I was snoozing my alarm until it was 4:36 and I still needed to change and walk my dogs before making it to the gym by 5. I was going to be late; it takes 10 minutes for me to get ready in the mornings, 20 minutes to walk my dogs and feed them, and another 10-15 minutes to drive to the gym. My first thought was, "I can just shower real quick and then go back to bed until 6:30 instead of working out today."

I'm glad to say that my immediate next thought was, "Oh no you will not. Get yourself up. NOW." And I did.

Because I was late, I did 30 minutes of really intense, painful cardio. I usually do about 45-60 minutes of moderate to intense cardio, jumping around from machine to machine, and then 30-60 minutes of weight and strength training.

My gym has Precor machines, which allow you to sign in and set goals for yourself. I have my profile set to burn 350 calories, 4 workouts per week, or 1400 calories per week. This is just in cardio and does not include weight training. Today was my third workout this week, and I hit the 1700 calorie mark! I exceeded my weekly goal in 3 days, and I still plan on hitting day 4 tomorrow. I am pretty excited to see what my number this week will get to. I have been pushing really hard to try and get to where I was 3.5 years ago, and then exceed it. I've made huge changes to my diet, completely eliminated beverages that aren't water, and have cut out a lot of carbs and sugar, and once the food that I have is gone, will change my diet again to reduce them even more.

I'm sure a plateau or even a muscle gain is coming any time, but I won't let it get me down. I can feel the change and that is what is important. I'm going to stay the course and turn this into a habit. 6 weeks to form a habit right? Well I'm halfway there on Sunday, and I'm already meal-prepped through that day.

Decided to change weigh-ins to Sundays, hoping I get lucky and my progress is reflected on the scale Sunday morning, but I'll be okay if I stay the same or gain back a pound or so. We will see. I have been avoiding weighing myself every day so I don't get discouraged with diet changes and muscle gain. Only time will tell. Yay for progress and determination!
