Scale woes - once again

I know, tomorrow or the day after I'll probably have a big WHOOSH!!! on the scale, but man, I've been stuck for like 2 weeks. I'm up 3 ounces again this morning. I'm eating perfectly - 1200-1400 calories a day, I'm exercising 6 days a week and the scale just doesn't want to move.

But my husband pointed something out to  me today and I hadn't thought about it, but I think he's right. It's getting warm. Like really warm. It's been mid to upper 80s for several days. We do most of our living upstairs in the house which means our living space is mid 80s. Even with windows opein, our bedroom is about 80 degrees at night. And what do we do when we are hot? We retain water! I did the ring test and my ring which was getting too loose is much snugger. I have indentations where my socks hit. It's not from too much sodium, it's from being warmer! That explains some of it. Otherwise it's that darn body rhythm I have where I don't like to lose for half the month and any day now, I should enter the other half of the month and life should be lighter! I'm so itching to get to the halfway point which is is still 4 pounds away! Grrr!!!

Other than that, yesterday was a productive day. I got a lot done on the kid's first day back to school. Today I'm going to scan my garden to figure out how to beautify it. We have the worst yard in the viewable area and about the worst yard I ever walk. Gardening is good exercise, so I need to dig into that too, literally.

Not much else, off to take lap two around the lake in a minute with a neighbor across the street.

  1. Yet remember, you'll be more active when it is warmer. So, there is a trade off. You'll be able to get our more!
