🌀DON’T LET YOUR WEIGHT DRIVE YOU CRAZY.
This is a PSA for you all but also a mental check in for me too. Even those most objective and audacious 😉 athletes need some reminders.
My celebration 🎉 into the 130s was short lived. In fact, after I hit it I had the highest fluctuation I’ve had in over a month.
WEIGHT LOSS, particularly fat loss, in terms of scale readings is rarely linear. Fat loss is a stressor on the body and that can create fluctuations based on hormonal responses to stress.
Let’s think logically 🤔 for a second.
I didn’t gain 3 LBS of fat over night. That’s impossible in a deficit.
It’s a host of interactions truly.
Some of which could be:
1️⃣ Food Volume. Time you ate your meals before bed to time you woke up and weighed in.
I had the majority of my food later in the day - just how my schedule played out yesterday.
2️⃣ Sleep schedule variation. I have a slammed morning to get work done before @topgolf with Boo 😘 finally after his 11 day work streak.
So I went to bed later and woke up much earlier to get issshhh done. Already in and out of the gym on a Sunday.
3️⃣ STRESS. Earlier in the week I was much more stable. Then work pilled on, travel anxiousness for next week made for a crazy to do list now, so just a bit of a squirrel 🧠 brain over here.
So I’m truly still OK 👍🏽 and so are YOU. Scale readings are ever changing but this physique is changing daily now.
If anything, a day spent a bit more away from the computer 💻 (sitting hip flexion) and time spent with the love of my life ❤️ for the first time this month is exactly what this stressed out, squirrel 🐿 needs.
Ohhhh 🥜 NUTZzzzzz.....where...??!!
