Weigh-In Wednesday: An Off Week

This was an off week in more weighs than one (HA HA, get it? Yeah, okay that was lame.) One, we're on an off week over at the Sisterhood! A new challenge starts NEXT WEEK so be sure to stop by and check it out! But this was also an off week because I gained a pound.

I know this is totally water weight. I know I didn't drink water over the weekend like I should have. On work days, I can drink water like it's no body's business, but on weekends, blah. In fact, I don't drink much of anything on weekends...well, sometimes. ;o) So, you give me a three day weekend where I'm not drinking water and the week is pretty much shot.

So, I gained weight. I can either kick myself in the ass over it or I can look at what I DID do this week.

1. I took my nephew to see my grandparents, and we took my dad's mom lunch since it was her birthday. I know that's not weight loss related, but I know you moms know that chasing after an almost 15 month old boy is not easy work! :o)

2. I climbed a mountain! Seriously, I did. It was one of the hardest hikes of my life, but I loved every minute of it.

3. I climbed a harkening hill, which I could swear to you was very much like climbing the mountain.

So, I may have gained a pound, but I'm really fine with it. Because hiking that much in two days was a lot of calories burned, and an accomplishment! Next week, watch out!

Last week's weight: 143.6
This week's weight: 144.6

As much hiking as you did, it's definitely water weight. Don't sweat it.

Or do. Ha.

Don't let a little water slow you down. You can do it!

Two mountains in one week?! YIKES!! That kinda makes my daily 2-4 mile walk on the flat prairie dirt roads seem pretty pathetic!!

Sounds like you've done great, even with the extra water weight. And the great thing about water weight is it's usually pretty easy to get rid of! You'll probably be down a couple of pounds next week.

Saw you on Shrinking Jeans and wanted to say thanks for keeping me motivated and entertained! Awesome on climbing a mountain...sometimes I feel like I couldn't even climb a mole-hill! Glad you are keeping it in perspective and not letting the pound keep you from moving!!!

I'm a walking contradiction. While I love to draw, paint and read, I also love all things gadgets, science and even science fiction (I know). My animals (two dogs and two birds) are my heart, and if I could figure out how to legally own a giraffe, I would. That all said, I have my BS in Mathematics. :o)
