Twist and shout!
I did just that this last week. I changed up everything. I added 2 points a day to my points total. I changed up my exercise routine. I even changed up the kind of food I ate. I've had 2 undeserved gains in a row so something had to change. I gained .8 two weeks ago and 3 pounds a week ago.
I have been doing 37 minutes on the elliptical 6 days a week. I've been doing strength training 2-3 times a week. This last week I still did the strength training, but I added a few new moves. I did a bit of circuit training with my cardio. I did 10 minutes on the elliptical then hopped on the bike for 10 followed by the treadmill for 10. Lather, rinse, and repeat. Making it a total of 60 minutes cardio. One day I took it on the road and walked/jogged for my hour. A total revamp of my exercise routine.
I think with my working on my feet and my exercising, I needed a few extra points. I did the point quiz and chose the 'mostly standing, some sitting' box getting me 2 more points to eat a day.
I wasn't sure what to change as I'm pretty sure my gains are hormonal. Do I eat more? Do I eat less? Exercise more? Less? I thought screw it...I'll just change everything.
I lost 7.8 pounds this week.
I was pretty freaking excited. It was funny as I got on the scale and the lady thought she'd done something wrong! She called the other lady over to find out what. I finally said 'there's nothing wrong, I had a great week'. Guess they're used to me gaining. Well, I hope they get used to me losing now! I'm so pumped to get off what I gained on my trip home from FL and get into virgin fat I could just spit! I'm sure you remember I gained 15 pounds on the way home...add the 3 from last week and the .8 from the week before....that's a lot to get off. I think I have 3 pounds left and then it's all gone!
VFT here I come!!!
