I woke up this morning, pumped to weigh in. I have been killing it at the gym, setting all new personal highs on amount lifted, calories burned (assumed at least), distance on all cardio machines, etc. I have been going on the weekends, and even tossing in the wii fit a little bit.
I quite smoking, stopped drinking (this was done a while ago actually though).
This week, I stepped on the scale, expecting to go from 300.9 (last week) down to around 297; unfortunately, I was at 300.7. This crushed me, and it showed in the gym this morning. I was moping around, basically skipped my cardio, etc. My back hurt like hell this morning (will go to chyro, barely move in certain positions), but I used that as an excuse, opposed to fighting through it.
For this past week, I kept saying "no excuses". "Your only competition is yourself." "Be better then the day before" And, god damnit, I did, all week.
I did decent on food, probably not as good as I should have, but I wouldn't think that would warrant such a small weight loss.
I did measurements, and many places I lost .5" or 1" from the previous week, which is definitely encouraging; however, I am doing the measurements myself, so I can't really go off that as I could easily be squeezing harder this week then last.
So, maybe it was a good muscle gain week, maybe it just sucked, I dunno.
What do you guys do when you have these weeks? I plan on sulting the rest of the day, but not to the extent of gorging in food. I'll nail the gym tomorrow and kick it's ass again, and continue to do so, but just wondering what you guys do when you feel down from the measurements / weigh ins / not reaching your goals.
