Ok, so I weighed myself a day early, 202.5.
This is depressing. I know I’ve had a few cheat meals in the past few weeks, but I don’t think that accounts for the gain. They certainly didn’t help, but if 3500 calories is a pound, then it still shouldn’t have gone up. Especially considering the running, rock climbing, and starting month 2 of insanity, I was expecting the scale to go down.
202.5 isn’t that bad as it has hardly moved in 15 days.
Muscle gain (not sure how much I buy into it being from that)
Too many calories (even with the Insanity diet).
Normal body fluctuations in a day (carrying food, water weight, and all that jazz)
I’m leaning more towards items 2 & 3. I really don’t think my body easily adjusted from the low cal diet that I was on prior to insanity. Could it still be recovering from that diet and holding on to food? Maybe… I’m starting to wonder if I’m experiencing a difference between the two diets. I’m not necessarily more energetic in my day. Eating more has always been great, but I just don’t know. I’m tempted to go back to the old ways for a day and see how I’m handling month 2.
