Well I have no idea how it happened but I lost weight this week. Not just a little either. I lost 4.6 pounds. I am not going to complain trust me. I did not cheat the scale by wearing lighter clothes or anything like that. I ate like crap over the weekend and still lost. I do have a couple of theories however.
I have no science to back these ideas up they are just thoughts, but I think it may actually be a combination of the two. The first is that Monday and Tuesday I really drank a lot of water. By a lot I am talking in the neighborhood of 250 ounces of water a day. I think that helped to flush my system of the excess sodium. Second would be the possibility of a 6 - 10 day delay in the results showing on the scale from a good or bad weekend or week. I have seen this first hand early in this whole thing and I think I was pretty complacent after I had a bad week and then posted a loss. I think I was pretty lax about my diet and exercise that week.
So this is no time for complacency. I have posted one gain through this whole ordeal and I would prefer not to do that again for a while. So this week it is back to the gym and eating right and staying on track. Join me this week. Don't be complacent. Strive to do just a little more. Exercise a bit more, eat more vegetables, drink more water. Try something new this week. Tell you what I will come up with a recipe for a Ginger Lemon stir Fry for you guys. I threw something together a week ago and it was really good so I will attempt to duplicate and post it here.
Do just a little more this week. What do you say?
