I have to share

Let’s talk about weight gain when you are working out consistently and eating right! So, I recently started a new work out program. I must say it’s a pretty advanced program that has me sore after every session, For example, if the day is hamstrings and glútes you better believe I am sore within the next 48 hours! I must admit I like it! I like how I feel when I’m done with each vigorous workout, BUT what I don’t like is how my scale went up 7 pounds! Yes I know, we shouldn’t focus so much on the scale or a number that’s on it but my mind has always been set to look at a number... (pretty silly I know)! We should always focus on how we feel, how our clothes are fitting, and hell even the inches lost but I feel like a balloon! Now for women it’s different than men, we have all these girly things going on that makes our weight fluctuate often! That statement makes me cringe but it’s the truth! I know that for most of us who start a workout regimen and eat right it can get sooooo discouraging and make us want to give up but we can’t! I have been consistent for a while now and if I haven’t said it enough that spike on the scale really has me worked up to a certain point, but let’s also remember stress plays a factor in weight loss and must be minimized for our bodies to respond well. Now according to google the reason we gain weight when starting a new workout regimen is this simple, “A new exercise regimen puts stress on your muscle fibers. This causes small micro tears, also known as micro trauma, and some inflammation. ... Your body responds to the micro tears and inflammation in two ways that cause temporary water weight gain.” I did some research and pretty much every source said the same thing a different way. I enjoyed reading this article on the Shape website https://www.shape.com/weight-loss/tips-plans/help-why-does-my-workout-cause-weight-gain check it out! Has this happened to you? Is this happening to you? What did or are you doing to cope with this temporary water weight gain? I’d love to read your feedback!
Let’s talk about
If you are a fitness freak like myself I'm almost sure you sit and shuffle your most favorite songs to get you through the workout! I mean of course sometimes I listen to motivational podcasts but I'm being honest here a go hard playlist can make the workout seem quicker and make you chase that pump a little harder. I am an Apple Music type of gal, although there's nothing wrong with Spotify or Pandora my preference is definitely Apple Music. So I want to share
