At weigh-in this morning, I was up almost a pound for the week so far. How on earth did this happen?
The trouble is, I don't know! I haven't been weighing regularly this week, you see. That's part of what inspired yesterday's post. This morning was the first time since Monday I stepped on the scales. Let's recap my week since then...
On Monday, I did eat rather too much. I think its an effect of my carbs over the weekend - I really do seem to be addicted to the things, and whenever I eat too many, I get hooked and relapse into a carb binge. Not that Monday was a binge, that is - I just ate carbs for every meal. (Toasted sandwich, baked potato, pasta...you know the score.)
Tuesday was better, and Wednesday I don't remember what I had, but don't recall a binge. Yesterday I had a low-calorie day (being aware that I hadn't weighed and getting nervous), but the calories I did eat were mainly carbs. I have also run three times so far this week, so that's nearly 13 miles under my belt already.
That's the tally for this week, and it has given me a gain of about a pound. That's why I don't know the cause - I haven't been tracking it. I don't know if my weight shot up dramatically after the Monday decadence and has been dropping since then, or if the weight jumped up after yesterday's low-calorie but high-carb total. It could be genuine weight gain, or it could be water weight following carbs. I guess we'll see!
