I'm swamped, but had to pop in to post my weight today. That carb up day did it's job--filled my muscles & body with needed glycogen stores & WHAMMO! a two pound weight gain.
But, unlike at other times when I've been dieting, this time it is NO BIG DEAL. I know what's going on with my body. It's not a mystery why I gained some weight overnight.
And, more importantly, it's weight I needed to gain. My body needs the glycogen to function properly and as a reminder than I'm not starving it, and now it knows that it doesn't have to hold on to my fat stores when I go into a carb down day tomorrow.
I got in a 3 mile run yesterday while Sophie was at swim class. Nothing extraordinary, other than I really didn't wanna but did it anyway.
Not sure what's in store for the rest of the day. DH might take the kids, or not, for my Wednesday night group power weights class. Work is so stressful right now. The folks in D.C. basically hold our future in their hands (not getting into a tangent on the financial markets, but let's just say that we truly are, without a doubt, on the edge of a precipice and it appears that we could go either way), and mentally we are both kind of a mess.
I'm saying lots of prayers for strength and clarity. And at least I'm not burying my head in a pint of Ben & Jerry's.
