The scale says what????

When I went to bed last night, there was something a bit weird - scale said 166.6. It was 168.0 yesterday morning (day 2 of my cycle). To be that much lighter in the evening almost never happens, but I also knew I would see a nice number in the morning and maybe, just maybe a new low. And what did I see this morning after a really bad night of sleep? A new low. Not by much, but it said 165.0 on the dot. Woohoo!!! I never, ever drop this much this early in the cycle. What is up with that? AND I have sore leg mucles this morning from doing bodypump last night (haven't done that class in a month because of the shoulder injury). Unbelievable!!!

So, that's a nice way to start the morning and to a great way to start this cycle! My hope, my super strong desire is to NOT go over 170 this month midcycle when I get my substantial ovulation weight gain. To not get into the 170s at all would feel so freaking huge as I have been in the 170s for wayyyyyyyy too long.

Today's activities should help. Along with volunteering and putting in work hours, I will garden. I need to put out newspaper on the lawn to kill the side yard grass and to expand the area around the rocks and the front yard flower bed. I want to get to it as soon as possible so that I can get it dug up around the time my mother in law comes back from her trip. I think I'll trim up some bushes today too.

Woohoo to the scale!  I also need to add up my fitness hours. I've gotten lazy with that, but I've been working on it!

  1. Woohoo! That is excellent, especially at an unexpected time of the month. I'm sorry you're so sore, though. A firm, strong set of muscles is worth it, provided warm baths and massages also come along with the aches ;)
