Keeping Up and Going on Vacation

I've been keeping up with P90X and still loving it.  I'm currently on week 6 and feel really good about it.  I'm way more coordinated with the workouts and used to the schedule, so I look forward to doing it just about every day.  

The one thing that confuses me is that I'm gaining weight.  I know it's not uncommon when people start P90X, but I'm not sure that's what I want.  The number on the scale is much higher than normal, up about 6lbs from when I started.  I guess I can chalk it up to 'muscle weighs more' but I feel that's usually bologna to make someone feel better. 

People at school are mentioning that I look like I'm losing weight and a mom asked me today if I'm still running, cause I look like it, but I'm gaining!  wtf?  I'm so confused.  I don't plan on stopping P90X by any means, but I would like to be down about 15lbs.  

My clothes are fitting differently, but not necessarily looser all over.  It's just weird.  I'm still running and enjoying running when I want to for as long as I want to, instead of following a training plan right now.  I'm looking forward to meeting Rebecca in the morning for a run :)

I'm heading to DC for a long weekend with my husband to visit his brother and newly-engaged fiance!  I'm so excited!!  I've been doubling up on workouts this week so that I can still be on track when we get back on Sunday.  It's going to be a lot of fun and I'm packing running clothes just-in-case.   


  1. on vacation i usually gain weight but going back home it will be back to normal in 2 weeks after doing exercise...

  2. I have gained weight while marathon training. 5 pounds. It's very frustrating to run a 20 mile run and gain two pounds the next morning but I believe it's muscle doing it's magic.(hopefully...because my clothes still fit nicely)

  3. I really enjoy running while on vacation.

  4. I try not to really pay attention to the scale. It is how your clothes are fitting, looser, tighter etc. :)
