The freaking scale said 433 today WTF guys??? Seriously...for the most part I've kept my calories under 1800 calories, fat usually hovers somewhere around 30 on average so wtf is going on? The ONLY thing I can really think of is my salt intake which is absolutely out of control. I don't know what the deal is, but I've been craving it like crazy so I've been having lots of salty foods (olives, pickles, salsa) and I've been salting the absolute crap out of mostly everything I eat. Last night I had baked potatoes (2), one with salsa and a bit of light sour cream and the other with ICBINB spray and a bit of sour cream and i swear I felt like I was salting it every 5 seconds.
I suppose I could be retaining quite a bit of water, but geez...it sucks to see the scale moving up when you are working out and eating better than you have in quite some time. I'm going to the gym in a few minutes and I think I'm going to work out in the gym rather than the pool today. They have one of those hand bikes there (the kind where you pedal with your hands and look like an absolute idiot) I might try if I can't do the regular bike without looking like my body is having convulsions. I mean, If I keep at it, the scale has to start moving in the other direction regardless of water retention right? I may also try replacing my lunch with a protein shake and see if that helps.
