Sooo I don't know what's happened.

The day before Christmas, I weighed 170lbs. The day AFTER Christmas, we went snowboarding. Plenty of activity to burn some major calories, right?

Today, I weighed 180lbs.

The last three weeks, I've worked out 5-6 days a week, with 30min of cardio at LEAST each time.

Also, my eating has not changed. If anything, I'm eating significantly less fast-food and other crap than I have in recent months.

So what gives? Thats a WHOLE lot of weight to gain, and while I'm getting pretty ripped, there's still flabbiness on me, so I can't say it's all muscle weight.

I don't understand, and I'm pretty depressed about it. I'm tempted to do a fruit-flush, and three days later start form zero, but it's hard to commit to that, and then make my boyfriend something else for dinner. Bah.

Today I've had:

Homemade breakfast sandwich: 1 whole wheat english muffin, one egg, one slice of canadian bacon, one slice of cheese
one can pears
30 stick pretzels
one can tuna

tonight, we'll probably go out to dinner, and I'll do what I usually do: lean protein (chix, or fish) and make sure they give me a vegetable, NOT bathed in butter.

I don't know. I'm completely perplexed. Perhaps I used to eat too little, and now my metabolism is all jacked, but ugh. It's frustrating.

Getting busy

So I haven't been to the gym since Friday, and I feel like a lazy butt. True, I went to Pilates on Saturday, but no cardio. I made the mistake of getting on the scale after dinner tonight, and that number SCARED me. However, my body definitely looks slimmer, and I have to chalk it up to muscle building.

I HAVE to do these 6am mornings. I don't have any other time! Luckily, my girl V at work is thinking about coming to the gym with me then. She just had a baby, and is ready to start losing. She's up at that time anyway, and getting up at 5am shouldn't be hard for me. I used to have to be to work at 4am when I was working at Starbucks!

I also need to get my trumpet upstairs. I've been looking at my music (especially Clowns) but I haven't played. I have three weeks before camp, but I shouldn't get lazy with it. I'm going to schedule my wisdom teeth to be pulled pretty much RIGHT after February camp. That should give me plenty of time before the next camp to recover.

Special thanks to Lynda for another tuition donation :) She's my best friend's mommy, and really didn't have to :)
