That was disappointing to say the least. It's strange how on the previous week I weighed 4 lbs. less than I weighed on Monday. This week, I weighed 3 lbs less on Saturday than I weighed on Monday. I am not quite sure what the issue is. But obviously last week was no blip.
I have had a bit more stress lately. Also, I cut back on exercise last week as I was showing symptoms of over training, although they are also symptoms of stress. This week I am back up to my normal level of exercise and everything seems to be falling in place, so I think the light week helped, but not on the scale.
This could be muscle gain, my body adjusting, or even the weather. These weight gains have corresponded with the warmer weather. With the added stress, I have been more anxious and restless. Strangely, I have been feeling more down in the dumps despite the nicer weather.
Next week, I leave for a conference in Milwaukee. My family is coming with me. After the conference, we are taking a week's vacation with some friends in St. Louis. That will be tricky food-wise since we will be staying at their house and somewhat subject to what they serve. I do have a few strategies in the works that should help, while not making me seem to be an ungrateful guest. I am looking forward to running around Forest Park. I have biked around it, rollerbladed around it, but I have never run around it.
