I am super happy to say that the numbers went down this week – 2.4 pounds.
In truth I wasn’t expecting them to go down so much since I had to miss or modify 4 (actually 5 now) workouts this week due to being so sick. I thought I’d probably only see a pound loss. However, I did really focus on trying to eat better and counting my calories.
Or it could be this…
It’s official, I have the flu and it is ripping me to shreds. I have been spending all day in bed or on the couch except for this short break to the computer. You do not even want to know how many blankets I am covered in! – Freezing! So in truth, maybe the fact that my body is currently being ravaged and chewed up may have to do with the weight loss. I guess I’ll just have to wait and see next week. However, until then, with all this crummy flu stuff I am just going to be happy about the loss. Woohoo! Over 5 pounds down!
FYI- This is the first time in 10 years I have gotten the flu shot. Also, the first time in that long I’ve gotten the flu. Evil. Ironic.
Besides resting like crazy, anything you find helps make the flu a little less horrible?
