This is just weird

Apparently those commercials warning about the bloating effects of the stress hormone cortisol were actually telling the truth. Last week, I was pretty much tied in knots as I tried to finish a room box before I had to head back to LA (the full story is here). Worked out, ate within my calorie limit, did all the things I was supposed to do.

Did I drop any weight? Hell no. Did I look like I was 9 months pregnant? Hell yes. So I come home from a spectacular weekend and relax, eat whatever I want from Sunday night to this moment, and somehow three pounds disappear and I can see my toes again. Damn you, cortisol!
