my answer …

Welcome to this week’s episode of Water Retention Monday. I’m your host, Bloated Mamavation Sista.

So I think I have the answer. Seems every Monday, my weight jumps up by a pound or two, then drops back down on Tuesday. I thought it might have something to do with the fact that I drink WAY less water over the weekend than I do during the week, and after several weeks of watching this happen, I’m pretty sure that’s the answer.

It was a rough week, but I still manged to lose a bit. I had a well deserved binge day (or two) starting on Tuesday, and by Thursday, I was back on track. Life throws us curve balls sometimes, and I think it’s okay to go temporarily off track as long as we jump back on quickly. That I did. (But the french toast and pizza truly were oh so good!)

I’m a bit disappointed with this heat. I was really getting into the C25K program I was doing, but there’s no way I’m running in 100 degree temps and high humidity. No worries, though. I’ve been sticking with the treadmill at work during lunch (Can’t workout at 100% on a lunch break, but every little bit counts!) and doing as much Wii Fit Step and EA Sports Active
as possible. Hoping to jump back in to C25K this week – fingers crossed.

I’m looking forward to seeing if my measurements have changed – tomorrow’s my day to find out!

How was your week? And what are you looking forward to going into this new week? Hope it’s a good one!

this heat is a KILLER! I’ve lost track of the consecutive 100+days here …. WTG sticking with the treadmill at lunch though :)

Great job on moving your running indoors – that is the commitment. Weight mystery takes a while to solve. Wishing you the best!

Good for you for getting in as much activity as you can in this blasted heat! It’s been hot here too! Yes, keeping your water intake up is really important, even on the weekends. Now that you know that’s the culprit, you can keep a close eye on your hydration. Good for yoU!

You’re absolutely right … fingers crossed that this is the right answer! :) Hope your week is great!

Oh I know, here too! I think we may have a nice night tonight … pretty crazy to think that a run outside would be a gift right now. I hate running! 😉
