being satisfied with breaking even...

At Saturday morning's WI, I broke even from last week's WI. I'm actually quite satisfied with that. Sure, it would have been nice to lose some. But I lost a whopping 2 POUNDS last week.

By Friday morning, I had lost a pound. I ate completely sensible all day Friday. Well, balanced. Absolutely NO cheating whatsoever. And when I woke up Saturday morning, I'd gained the pound back. It might be water retention, like my mom mentioned. That's entirely possible but I think I'm going to chalk it up to fluctuation.

I know our bodies will fluctuate from time to time without any rhyme or reason—at least that we can tell. I hate it. But it's true. Our bodies are smarter than we are, you know? They know when there's a chemical imbalance or a metabolic imperfection occurring that we would never be aware of. Then our bodies will compensate for it by producing more of this or that chemical or whatever. So I can't complain. It keeps me healthy. I'm happy with that. No, better, I'm satisfied with that.

As long as my long term weight keeps averaging lower and not straight across or even up, I'm totally fine with it holding it's own or gaining occasionally.

I'm planning on getting up Monday morning and trying jogging again. Though the way my tummy feels right now, I will probably just walk. I won't push it. But I will get up and do SOMETHING. I have to. I've got to get back on the horse. I only jogged once last week, which was no small feat, let me tell you. And I did walk those two days with the girls, which was great. But I've got to get back to my "me" exercises. I need to step it up — consistently.

So, I'll report back in tomorrow and let you know how I did.

Have you guys been doing anything different in your exercise routines lately? I wonder what everyone else is doing to "keep it going".
