Sorry this week’s Weigh-In is being posted so late. I was so exhausted last night after spending all day deep-cleaning my kitchen that I fell into bed as soon as The Biggest Loser was over and just crashed. I was sound asleep in no time.
I really thought I’d spend two or three hours deep-cleaning my kitchen and dining room. I wound up spending all day on just the kitchen. Ewww! It’s sparkly clean now though, including some areas that I’d been too fat to get to for awhile. Sometimes you don’t realize the little affects of being overweight.
Also, one side benefit to cleaning house is burning calories. I burned nearly 3,100 calories yesterday from just a 3-mile easy run (which is totally a misnomer because it was hot, miserable and hard) and cleaning the kitchen.
So, anyway, I stepped on the scale, not quite sure what to expect. I’ll be honest, although I had worked out regularly, I’d been pretty loose and free with the eating. Not binging, necessarily, but, for one thing, we ate with Brian’s parents at an all-you-can-eat country cooking kind of place on Saturday. I didn’t go totally crazy, but there really weren’t any especially healthy choices, so I enjoyed some old favorites that I haven’t had in forever, like fried chicken livers and fried green tomatoes. Yeah, pretty much all the options were fried.
I stayed exactly the same. Not moving in the right direction, but not moving in the wrong one either. And, since I’ve decided to go ahead and jump into my 12-Week Sprint to the Finish (sorry to jump ahead, but I decided why not go ahead and get going), I didn’t feel too bad about it because I know that scale is going to move in the right direction next week.
It has to. I’m rather sore from working muscles that haven’t been worked in awhile and I’ve been making a conscious effort to stay active, cleaning my house like crazy. I know next week is going to be a better scale week.
So, what about you? How did your weigh-in go this week?
