To be totally honest I wasn’t happy this morning when I weighed in. I mean I worked my butt off yesterday and I gained 0.4lbs since Saturday morning. Upon further reflection I realized I was wrong to be unhappy. My salt was up yesterday from normal. I was around 2300mg yesterday when most days I’d be half that. I also obviously created a huge calorie deficit that my body probably didn’t like. So there were reasons why I was probably up a bit and I just have to correct those reasons.
By next week I’ll be probably doing two a day workouts so I’m going to up my calories. Starting today I’m going to try upping my calories to a range of 2100-2500. Today I came in at 2241. The reason for upping my calories is that your body will tend to hold on to weight if it feels like your not giving it enough. I realize it was only one day but yesterday I ate 1882 and burned 7161 between my BMR and my exercise. So I’ll try the new higher calorie range and see how my body reacts when the calorie differential isn’t so great.
Today was another busy day at work followed by a round of golf. Every time I bent over to mark my ball, read a putt or tee up my ball I could feel my quads yelling at me for yesterday’s workout. They aren’t getting a rest tomorrow so they better get use to it quick 🙂
