Weigh In Wednesday: Debbie Downer edition

I’m trying to figure out how the above chart translates into a 1lb weight gain. I don’t get it. I’m really struggling today. I’ve been floating between 261-263 for 5 or 6 weeks. I’ve really been cranking up the workouts and last week I introduced biking into my routine to switch things up. I really don’t want to start journaling my food intake. I REALLY don’t. But maybe I have to.

Add that to my desire to run but inability to do so and you have a depressed Amy. I have found it difficult to manage the desire to run with the realization that if I try to push too hard, I’ll screw up all my training for the half in Napa. I have to keep telling myself that it’s ok to walk. Never in my life have I WANTED to run. So this desire to run is new for me. I am having issues dealing with it, because in my life when I want to do something and I put my mind to it, I DO it. I don’t wait around for things to happen.

I’ve also been yearning to adopt a dog. Most people my age have baby fever. I have baby doggie fever. I fell a li’l in love with a three-legged cutie at the humane society. I told myself that when he would be ready for adoption, if his adoption fee was less than $250, I would adopt him talk to my landlord and beg him to let me adopt him. I mean, look at that face. How could he say no to that face? I mean, really. Isn’t he the cutest? Well, Max went up for adoption today. His adoption fee is $450. I can’t justify spending that much to adopt a dog. I certainly wouldn’t have the extra funds to provide him the life he deserves. So you could say I’m upset. I almost started crying at work today when I heard the news (I’ve been in close contact with the humane society peeps since I found out about Max and his story).

Needless to say, I’ve had better days.

Ok, well I need to stop this pity party real quick.

Thanks for letting me vent.

  1. Muscle weighs more than fat!

    Thw other thing that I am horrible at is tracking food. I know I have eaten waay too much almond butter this week but it’s so good and keeps me full. Anyhow, I’m here cheering you on and knowing that we are going to rock the Deer Run on Saturday. 🙂

    1. I keep telling myself that, but it’s hard to accept that when it’s been so long since you had a loss. We are sooo rocking the deer run!

  2. Maybe you’re building muscle or it could just be a plateau. They suck, but I know you’ll get past it! So sorry to hear about the pup. 🙁 I want to cry with you. I hope he finds a good home with lots of love. It’s been a suck day here too so maybe it’s just going around. Oh well, hope tomorrow is better for us!!!!!

  3. Two things:

    I run a Chicks on Bikes ride on the east side if you’re interested in coming. It’s social and fun AND excercise at the same time.

    Secondly, you can still help a dog out by adopting it without getting it from the Humane Society. Have you looked at rescues or in the newspaper?

  4. Belle-why don’t you just try tracking or journaling for a week and see what happens? You may be happy with the results! And yes, that dog is super cute! I am sorry that you won’t be able to adopt him 🙁
