See that picture? That yucky, yucky picture?
Yeah …. I GAINED weight in my first “official” week of the Omron and Mamavation fitness challenge. Gained. GAINED!
To admit frustration is an understatement. I was angry and sad with the knowledge that despite my hours and hours on the treadmill … despite the strength training exercises (sigh … burpees… my new dreaded word) … I gained nearly three miserable pounds.
It’s enough to make a girl want to spit.
But, the Husband reminded me of something. This: “The One Where I Talk About the Thing I ‘Don’t’ Talk About.”
Lightbulb moment, folks. Regardless of my PCOS (a common hormonal condition), every time I start watching what I eat and exercising, my nearly broken body decides to shape up and become “normal.” Regular. Nearly predictable. It seems it likes the healthy living route.
And, during those times, I have the joy of experiencing a few extra pounds. Just for a week.
So, the frustration is gone. My body is just working. Like it’s supposed to. Being a normal, healthy girl…. I just wish it had waited till this whole challenge was over.
But, never mind. Next week is an entirely new week and a new chance to shed this water weight and then some.
Just. You. Watch.
How do you combat bloat and water weight gain?
