It was a frustrating week. I know everyone is like well maintaining is better than gaining, which I agree is true, but I don’t have a problem gaining weight so for me to stay the same is not good, it’s nothing different. I’ve maintained my chubby weight while exercising consistently for 2 years. I’d been doing really good with eating but this past week I was really craving junk and I felt way hungrier than normal. And of course I gave into my cravings and ‘hunger’. It’s not like I don’t eat junk when I’m doing ‘good’ either it’s that I was eating way more than one serving I was eating many servings. I’m hoping it has to do with hormones and lady times but regardless that’s two weeks of nothing and even if it is hormones I can’ do that every month. It’s about better choices right?
So on top of my crap eating my ankle has hurt for 2-3 weeks now but last week it hurt alot, my trainer said no to running but even biking or swimming had me hobbling and icing and popping ibuprofen. So I haven’t been getting the same intensity of workouts as normal. I guess with my lower exercise and higher food intake it’s pretty amazing that I didn’t gain more this week. My trainer and I think my ankle thing is just from weakness so I’m going to just work out hard and ice it and take ibuprofen and hope to strengthen it, that’s worked the last couple days so we will see.
