LadyShello Comes Full Circle - Nerdversary


Shello

Recommended Posts

Spreadsheets updated and my patience is running thin.... and it's only day 4.   

 

Yesterday was another awesome day.  I went for a 10 mile bike ride, ate dinner, and then took the dog for a half hour walk.  According to my fitness tracker calories out were high.  According to MFP calories were more than I am used to but I pulled in a hella big deficit.  According to the scale, I gained .2.   WTH?  I know the scale is a poor benchmark but I am beginning to question the CICO numbers.  Is my fitness tracker exaggerating?   What am I missing on MFP?  What will happen next on the Days of Our Lives?!   

 

Regardless, I was super active yesterday and that makes me happy.  I didn't however do the scheduled workout so I need to focus on strength training to get caught up.  Tonight is the boxing (or would it be shadowboxing since I won't hit anything but the air?) for the mini.  It's a bit strength and a bit cardio.  Oh - I might do a couple attempts on the rock wall and that's strength.  But I need to do PT exercises too.  I should make a mental note that the PT must get done.  

 

I'm not going to worry about the scale for now either - though it's super frustrating.  Tomorrow I leave for my last weekend trip.  I'm just going to stay as active as possible and record all the data.  I will re-evaluate after a full week of data.

Happy nerdversary!!!

 

Your challenge post is full of so much awesome. These:

 

Developing good habits do not mean the bad habits are gone. They lurk.

 

...

 

As with any game you play over again, I am expecting it to be easier to defeat the boss this time around. I have learned it's tricks and patterns and I will be ready to defeat it.

 

particularly struck me as SO DAMN TRUE. Your goals look great, and it's super cool to see it all coming full circle. Good luck this challenge! Have an awesome weekend trip :D

Lol, I used to watch Days of Our Lives with my mom when I was little.  The other day it was on in the gym and I only recognized one person from the old days.

 

Even one full week of data may not be enough to know if your CO numbers from your fitness tracker are accurate (or if you're underestimating things food-wise).  I would give it two weeks, or even a full month.  Remember that as you get closer to your goal weight things will slow down.  Patient bear needs to continue to be patient :).  Maybe only weigh yourself once a week so that you don't have to deal with the emotional stress of daily fluctuations?

Does the bear ever get up from the table? Should we be poised to flee? I hope you have a nice weekend :)

 

I was pretty excited to find him still at the table.  He is just starting to lose patience... I think it wise to be prepared to run just before all patience is lost. . .

Yes, you're right, more data would be best.  Especially due to 2 travelling weekends in a row.  It's harder to track calories since I'm not eating at home and that good be messing up the data.... and I end up eating more salt and carbs and the water gain and loss messes up data too.  

 

OK, I'll go for more data and I might even consider getting on the scale less often.... but I will probably be secretly aiming for a higher deficit...  But if you repeat that I won't admit to anything.  Any deficit is a pass, technically.  And that's what I am hoping keeps be from 'cheating'.

Urgh, the scale...! It's kinda arbitrary how the scale is the "most honest" way to track your progress, isn't it? Some people in the past decided that your weight is the most important way to tell how you're doing, when they could have picked measurements, pictures, or pretty much anything...

 

That said: I feel your pain, Shello! Stay patient, keep collecting data - if you're having a deficit, the weight will come off. Trust the process :)

it's crazy.  I know all this but yet it's all right there in my brain standing in front of Reason.  I trust the process, in general, but I've changed my process this challenge and I'm not sure I trust it yet.  That is my problem.  But you guys are awesome so I'll trust you guys and keep going.

That. Was. Sneaky.  I approve. 

 

 

ETA - It doesn't help that I am wearing a pair of jeans today that are freshly washed and a little shrunken.  They are better a little stretched out so I feel like it is just another measure of potential failure...

This was totally me in my third challenge.  The first two weeks were riddled with anxiety.  It all worked out fine, though.

 

I have every confidence that yours will, too.  :)
