So, it's just going to be a quick one today, so that I can update and post my starting numbers for the at-work weight loss challenge thing I'm doing.
It just dawned on me that even though I did my first weigh in yesterday, I have absolutely no idea how the challenge is going to go. I mean, I don't know if I'm going to weigh in weekly or what the rules are if we gain weight, etc. Someone mentioned yesterday that in the past, if a person gained weight they had to pay a $1 for every pound gained... but nothing was really explained yesterday so I should really find out today.
Anywho, I weighed myself when I first got up and I weighed 250.6lbs. Which is 2lbs down since my last weigh in on January 2nd.
At work, after drinking a couple cups of coffee, I weighed in at 255.8lbs. But, the nurse did say that the scale tends to be about 3lbs heavier than a regular scale... so I guess I will be able to compare that after a few weigh ins.
I hate being 8lbs heavier than I was the last time I weighed in back in November. Gaining 8lbs in two months isn't good, but I guess that's what happens when out of two months I was out of work for 5 weeks of that time. So, it really shows that my work does give me some activity. My doctor told me that the activity I do at work doesn't count towards getting in any exercise, because it's my regular routine. Well, if that's the case, explain why I was losing weight while at work and gaining it while I wasn't?
Don't really answer that. It was rhetorical.
I know that I can't blame my weight gain solely on the fact that I was out of work so much.
But, I am back now, and my body should start adjusting back to being on my feet all day, rather than sitting on the couch all day.
In fact, I have way too many aches and pains this morning for my liking. It actually makes me want to get out and run all the kinks out. Something I plan on doing today after work. I have a training all day, so I'll be sitting all day. I don't want another day of sitting. I need to be up, and active, and moving. I hate standing up and feeling tightness and pain in my legs... unless that pain comes from the fact that I've done some serious working out.
I figure after a day of listening to a speaker, I'll need to run off some energy.
OK, that's it for me today. Told you it was going to be quick. I will find out all the details on the challenge and post them when I get them.
Till next time....
