Can't figure out my scale
Monday, August 30, 2010
So I am in several 10 pound challenges for the month of August. I had three pounds to go as of Friday. Sunday is normally my free day because I visit my Grandmother and spend the day with her and I can never count calories before hand because I do not know what she will have to eat. I work out 6 days a week and take of on Sunday. So on Saturday I decided to be just as strict as I am during the week with my eating and exercise as well. I got up Saturday, worked out and pushed myself to do a performance challenge on my bike. I normally always bike manual and never do the challenges. But I said what the heck and really pushed myself. I managed to get in 7 miles on the bike and then I commenced working on the yard. I cut grass, trimmed bushed, sewed lime, weeded the grass and sprayed deck to kill the grass coming through. I treated the foundation of my house with a insect killer because I saw a couple spiders in the house and a bug in the garage. I filled pot holes under the swing set from the kids dragging their feet and the dog helping dig to china. Needless to say I started working in the yard around 11:30 and stopped around 4 p.m. I had a few set down breaks when I got to hot but I really worked hard. Then yesterday I did not really exercise but after church and Grandma's I took my son around our neighborhood, pulling a wagon with Boyscout Popcorn selling it door to door. We did that for about one and a half hours until it was all sold. By the way I am sooo proud of my son, it was his first selling experience and he did so good. One person answered the door said he was not interested in the popcorn but "nice salesmanship" . It was really cute! So after my busy weekend of working and burning calories I am thinking last night I am going to get on the scale and see a loss. NOT! I see nothing, same thing this morning. I know I do not drink all of the water I should on Sundays as I am away from home but really zero lost. UGH!
I am hoping with being back on track and drinking all of my water my system will catch up again and I will have a loss tomorrow for the final weigh in of the month. I may not reach that 10 pound goal but I want to get as close as possible.
