I have been a member for years so I have heard all of the explanations for why I am not losing. I am VERY frustrated! I have worked out every day this year with the exception of one because of a digestional issue. Since my last blog I Worked out Friday morning to include zumba and toning and then that night I took three children to the pool and swam for 1 hour. Then on Saturday I had a digestional issue and Sunday I did 8 loads of laundry (stripping beds), reorganized my attic putting all decorations in rubbermaid containers and getting rid of cardboard boxes, I cleaned the kitchen floor, pantry floor, cleaned the 1/2 bath, vaccumed and spot cleaned the family room, redecorated my Christmas tree as my husband wants to see it when he gets back from deployement, cooked 3 meals for the family, etc. Needless to say I did not sit down yesterday until almost 6 p.m. When I get on the scale it says I gained. WHAT THE HELL! I have been working my butt off for almost 2 weeks now. Only taking one day off this year. I have been watching my calories. Yesterday I did go over by 200 but I worked non-stop all day long. I even wore my step counter and by lunch had already hit 10,000 steps. UGHHHH. I was sweating like crazy so I know I was burning calories. Short of not eating I do not know what else to do. Yes I may be gaining muscle but do you know how long it takes to gain one pound of muscle. So even if I gained one pound of muscle I should have lost a few pounds by now. UGHHHHHH!
