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!

Chest and tricep workout no gym equipment needed!

Hi guys !! So this year is all about fitness for me. As you all know I’m trying to lose the baby weight from my previous pregnancy and I’m not going to lie it’s been a battle, but I’m sticking to my eating clean and working out! I will look better than ever by summer. I can’t wait to show you guys my new before and after pic. Anyway as a new mom

it’s hard for me to go to the gym because I want to be home with my baby. This reason shouldn’t stop me from working out. I have lots of DVDs to do my cardio workouts and even purchased a treadmill that I use EVERYDAY, but today I want to show you guys some ways on how to work your chest and triceps from home. I normally put the baby in her playpen  or down for a nap and am able to accomplish a good workout. The workout I’m going to tell you about is great because it can of course be done from home and you don’t need any fancy equipment.

What will you need for this home chest and triceps workout?

1) You! you need yourself to perform the workout
2) A home with some chairs or couches
3) A gallon of water,milk,tea etc.

Exercise one: Regular Push Ups
Ok so lets start this  workout with some good old push ups
Push ups are a great chest exercise and will be the foundation of this workout.
We are focusing on the chest muscles in this exercise
Perform 3 sets of  12 regular push ups with no longer than 30 second rests in between sets! perform each set at a high intensity! Get as close to muscle failure as you can!!

Exercise two: Diamond push-ups
Making a diamond shape with your hands under the center of your chest and doing push-ups in this position do diamond push-ups. By placing your hand so close together, you take the stress of the load off your pecs and onto your triceps. Killer for your triceps!

Exercise three: Tricep extensions
I recommend a gallon of water or milk for this exercise. Stand nice and straight with your feet about hip width apart. Hold a gallon of water behind your head, gripping the handle with both hands. Extend the bottle over your head until your elbows are straight, and then slowly lower back to the starting position.

Exercise four: Tricep dips 
Do you have a chair, couch, bed, bench or coffee table in your house? Of course you do!!!  All you have to do is place your hands on any of the mentioned objects with your back facing to it and your knees bent at a 90° angle then lower your body down and push yourself back up with your triceps

Please don’t forget to stretch before and after these exercises! Stretching is very important so that you don’t pull a muscle or walk around with stiff muscles.
