11 Weeks and Crazy Scales

So here I am 11 weeks out and excited to hop on the scale and see what progress I have made during this week of clean eating. By clean eating I mean no crap because although I did stick to my diet foods I am guilty of having extra portions. I know I need to get a handle on this but in my head it was a LOT better then what I have been up to and I still have 11 weeks. The biggest problem was that I was forced to buy Vanilla yogurt instead of plain which I have learned is not an option as I enjoy the sweetness too much. A couple of days I would go back for seconds (maybe even 3rds :S) of the yogurt, cottage cheese, berry combo. Keep in mind that my diet says a 1/4 c. of each so it's easy to see how these calories could have added up.
Anywho...all in all I felt it was a pretty good week so when I hopped on that scale I was SHOCKED to see the following;
Weight - 133.8 (down .8)
Fat % - 20.4 (up 2.7)
Fat Mass - 27.2 (up 3.4)
FFM - 106.6 (down 4.2)
Could this be true??? I know I couldn't possibly have lost 4.2 lbs of muscle and gained 2.7 lbs of fat in a week but now the problem is I don't know which reading is more accurate...arrrggh! Maybe I really did do more damage then what the previous reading showed! I am going to try my best not to hop on it every day this week and just hold out until Saturday when it's time to weigh again. Boy that thing can sure mess with your head!
Workouts were great last week :) I am glad I decided to take the previous week off as I came back fresh and have been dealing with some wicked doms ( especially in the legs!). I am going to start my week today which would normally be my rest day because I am having surgery on Thursday and unsure what I will be capable of after that. They say you can resume 'normal' activities right away but not clear on what defines normal. Standing all day slinging dumbbell's & weight plates followed by a 45 minute stair climb and intense leg workout? I think not.
Today is shoulders and triceps followed by 45 minutes on the bike although I am thinking if saving the bike for later in the week. I may need something easier after the surgery. After that I am training a good friend and then hitting the driving range with her.
I love Sundays!!
