Weekend recap: The good, the bad and the ugly

The weekend is over... the weekly countdown to weigh in begins.

Let's recap, shall we?
The bad - Chinese food for mother's day
The UGLY - the cream cheese frosting in my fridge. Yup, I ate a couple of spoonfuls in the middle of the night
The good - Saturday's 20K bike ride with Kristen and Sunday's 30K bike ride with Kristen... then my biggest loser workout today AND the treadmill today.

I have NO idea how any of that will help me with WI... because even though I did all that crazy biking on the weekend... the scale still had me up today. I swear, my body does NOT want to lose weight (and NO, i'm not pregnant!)

Here's what I ate today (it's less than it should be because i'm accounting for the cream cheese frosting incident that happened sometime between 1-2am)
BF - egg (2), canteloupe (1)
Lunch - smart ones baked ziti (6)
snack - dill pickles (0)
Dinner - 1c ww pasta (3), 2oz chicken breast (2), 1/2c cottage cheese (2), yogurt (1), strawberries and pineapple (1)

I'll keep up my efforts and just hope I see a decline on the scale this week... although this is my bloated week so I'm not holding my breath. I will, however, keep up my efforts... because it does feel damn good to be feeling in control again!

Wow, that's a whole lot of bike riding. I hope your seat is comfortable :)
I know how frustrating it can be when effort does not = results. It's a pisser-offer (if that's a word!!). The one thing I can think of is that you do not usually bike, therefore, by biking 50K on the weekend, you have used muscles that you are not used to using. Therefore, your body is retaining water in order to repair said muscles. Does that make any sense?
I know with myself that running the day before weigh in usually puts me up but my theory is that it is water retention. So I try not to let that discourage me. And is it worth not doing the excercise the night before weigh in? Sometimes I wonder but most of the time the answer is no. I should do the excercise if I have the opportunity regardless of my water issues!!!
OK - novel over. Hopefully that was a little logical :)
Keep truckin' girl (or in this case, biking!?)

I love your site.

I wanted to ask you where you purchase your flatout bread and your vitalicious muffins. I live in Belleville, near you in a way, and I go to Watertown and cannot find a thing there. I was also in Niagara Falls this weekend and went over to the USA to Topps and Target and I could not find it there either :(
Thank you for your help and keep up the great work!!!
