Why is my new workout routine causing me to gain weight?

HELP!!!!!!
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!

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.

Keto Friendly Peanut Butter Chocolate Fat Bombs

Since my transformation back in December, I must say I am super proud of how far I have come. I reached my goal weight by simply following a 1200 calorie diet and a lot of exercise. As my body got used to the same routine I took somewhat of a break and figured I should enjoy whats left of my summer and I have

gained a few pounds but hey thats the beauty of this lifestyle there is no destination. Its a constant change and I truly love it! Well now that my birthday is coming up in October I am ready to transform my body yet again and this time I’m doing it the low carb way. Ive tried many times these past couple of weeks to get it right but today I can say my mindset is where it needs to be to stick to this plan to see the change I want to see. As my sweet tooth attack happened I had to search for a craving killer. So a good friend of mine shared a recipe with me to try. Let me just say I am sooooooo thankful she did! I did make some modifications and I’m going to share the recipe I followed with the ingredients I used. I hope you can use this as a guide to keep you on track as well!

RECIPE:

1/2 Cup of Organic Coconut Oil
1/2 Cup of Natural Peanut Butter or Almond Butter
(I used 1/2 cup of powdered peanut butter )
(Less than 5 grams of sugar is important)
2 to 3 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tablespoons of Splenda or Stevia 
(or sweeten to taste)
A dash of Vanilla extract (Optional)

1. In a large pan heat and melt your coconut oil and peanut butter.
2. Stir in your cocoa powder and splenda.
3. Once removed from the heat you may add your vanilla extract. 
4. Pour into silicone candy molds or even small cupcake holders.
Each mold or holder should hold one tablespoon of the mix.
Place in the freezer and until you have chocolate candy looking deliciousness.

You can eat one fat bomb when that sweet tooth craving starts or if you want to curb your appetite.

If you’re anything like me I like to keep track of everything on my LoseIt App. So my calculations for the nutrition facts for 1 piece comes out to 
80 calories
 1.5 grams of Protein 
1.8 Carbs 
9 grams of Fat

Also you should keep them zip locked air tight and in the fridge or freezer as they will melt being at room temperature.

Enjoy!
