The scale is so tricky and a day of eats!!!

so yesterday I weight 172.2 and today I weighed 169.0 wtf happened over night. This proves that the scale shouldn't be the only thing that you depend on to measure your results but hey at the same time I'm not complaining. This afternoon I went on a hike it was 67 degrees with a slight breeze it felt amazing I burned 442cals not too bad!! Here are some pics I took!

Beautiful day in Az
 Before my hike I started my day with some breakfast while reading blogs
449 cals 1/2cup egg beaters, 1lg egg, english muffin, 111grm pineapple, keurig mocha,  1tb brummel brown butter 1tbs jelly

190cal so yummy and keeps me full

Then i had this for a snack before I left

so I headed out for my hike then went to the grocery store. when I got home I was super hungry so I ate lunch!
392cals 3.5oz meat, cheese slice, carrots, cauliflower, broccoli burger wrapped in lettuce with a tiny bit of ketchup and mustard and a side of buffalo wheat thins (more on this later)

I hung out at home for a bit and caught up on some shows then headed to zumba!!! It was an awesome 1hr class I burned 547 calories!! after the class I was a little hungry but had to head to the store again to get some stuff that the other one didn't so I ate this

The store I went to was under renovation so nothing was in its normal spot so that really sucked so I won't be going back there for a while but then I headed home and had a shakeology for dinner

551 cals shakeology, 2tbs peanut butter, 8oz vanilla almond milk 8oz water 1 banana

So in total I burned 2815 cals today thats including my workouts and my normal living calories burned I ate 1605 so my deficit is at my goal of -1000 but I didn't eat enough. According to the body bugg if you eat 1000cals then you burn each day you will lose 2lbs a week so yes I exceeded the goal but you don't want to over do it.

All in all it was a pretty nice and relaxing day now back to the grind tomorrow a week and a half till my challenge let me know if you want that final spot!!!


  1. Your food looks good. I had the same kind of weight thing happen. On Monday I weighed 137.4 and on Tuesday I weighed 135.8. I know it's impossible to have that much change in "real" weight overnight so I just brush it off and go on. :)

  2. That's why I don't weigh myself every day. Weight changes almost always the fault of water retention.

    all the best to u,

  3. Great job burning ALL these calories. I weigh myself every day in the morning so that I stop being so hung up on the number. Fluctuations are so common that I stop caring :) it's a nice change from when I HATED the scale.

    Have a lovely day!
