Head Games

Talk about messing with my head ...

On Sunday night, I was picking out work clothes for Monday. I've been wearing skirts and dresses since I decided to quit prep, because I don't want to get depressed about the potential that my pants don't fit. I know my shirts are all a lil tighter, so I'm assuming my pants are prolly not gonna fit.

Instead of attempting to squeeze into a smaller size only to discover they don't fit and then be depressed for the rest of the night, I picked out a larger pair of capris. Last month, these pants literally hung off my butt. On Sunday evening, they were almost too tight.

I cried. A lot.

Completely depressed, I wore them yesterday anyway, feeling like Mariah Carey stuffed into 3-sizes-too-small clothing. But here's the weird thing ... by the end of the day, they were hanging off my butt again. What the heck?!

Super cute,but I'd rather they didn't fit

Apparently, I dropped a bunch of water weight yesterday and prolly stretched the fabric out a bit over the course of the day too.

So what's going on with my body? My best guess is that I was still retaining a lot of water from extra food and carbs I ate on Saturday and Sunday. By no means did I overindulge, but I definitely had some pizza and fried foods (fried sushi & jalepeƱo poppers - YUM!). I may have had a bowl of ice cream topped with Reese's Pieces too.

When I went back to eating clean with smaller serving sizes yesterday, plus having a kick ass workout, some of the water weight came off. It's amazing what a big difference certain foods can have on my body. And since I'm just a lil thing, a pound or two really is noticeable.

For the most part, I'm happy with how my body looks right now. I'd be thrilled if I were 5 lbs tighter, but I'll get there. I can still see my abs, and my arms and legs still have some definition. I'd say my off-season is going quite well so far!
