Not dead.................yet

Ok, I know, it has been like 9 days since last post. But I have been a BUSY BUSY BEE.

Alright, seriously, I have been really utilizing my Bday gift from the parents. (If you all recall the 1 year membership to ANYTIME Fitness)  I have been busting my ass big time!! However, I got a little pissed, to say the least after 2 weeks of this place.
I go in for 1 hour. (otherwise rising BEFORE the Butt Crack of dawn, drive my 10 minutes to AF and work out for EXACTLY 1 hour. (this is my MUST DO- makes me keep moving regardless- 60 mins no less)
I spend HALF my time (30 mins) doing cardio- bike, treadmill, elliptical. And then 30-40 minutes doing CARDIO weight lifting. *Less weight then I could MaxOut on put that I can move swiftly to cut more fat while still rebuilding muscle.*

So, 2 maybe 3 weeks, trying not to really think about it in time. But I have been weighting myself daily (i know- big NO NO) and I freckin' GAINED 2 lbs two days ago. (however I noticed it was gone this morning)

OTHERWISE-- NO WEIGHT LOSE YET. Still need to drop 50 lbs. **And I have been eating good, no junk, no sugar loads, no caffeine (cut that over a year ago), good portions, small dinners, fiber heathly breakfast and snacks.
SO, here is my problem.................WHAT THE HELL!???!!!

Suggestions anyone????

You are more than likely replacing muscle with fat - you may weigh the same, but are making positive changes to your body! When I was a size 2 I weighed 134 lbs. on my short frame, it was because I was in great shape. Trust your success by how your clothes fit and how great you feel, not the scale.

So keep kicking ass! Jealous of your birthday membership :)

Thanks Em! I am wearing a size smaller top, and the bottoms are changing-slightly. But my 5'5'' body is 191 FRECKIN' pounds! See why I need to drop 50 FOR SURE!

Love you!
ps. It feels nice having something to make others jealous- with our shitty year+. ;o)

You are doing great!
Muscle is building - you are on a journery for life not just this moment - stop staring at the scale and keep working. That muscle will burn the hell out of the fat and viola! you will be shedding the pounds.
I know it. I'm a professional. :-)

Yeah, that happened to me when I started going to the gym. Muscles..heavy...AND I was hungrier, but as I well know, one has to be HUNGRY from time to time to lose weight. There isn't any way around it. Hang in there, mamacita!! and never never never give up.
