kingkeld's Journal, 15 December 2012

Good morning, Fatsecret!

Yesterday, I started out great. Yup, ”started out”. Things changed through the day, but fortunately I will be able to compensate for it today. Daughter had some amazing news, and she took us out to celebrate.

Obviously, we went to celebrate with her. It was a huge day for her.

As some of you, Daughter is an amazing – AMAZING – artist. She did my bio picture, amongst so many other things. She works with digital art, and is actually capable of drawing photo realistic images. I'm super impressed with her work.

Anyways, the good news is that she has been granted access the take the Media Graphics education here in Denmark.

This will give her three years of education in her absolute favorite field, in a specialty where she is almost certainly guaranteed work in the future, and where she will have a steady money income all the way through. It's a paid education all the way, and she is GETTING PAID to take it.

She will essentially learn how to set up graphics, write articles, and design an entire magazine setup, and everything that goes with it, including online features, videos etc. It's amazing.

What's even more amazing – they let in 15 students every year. A LOT apply. She's one of the 15 they saw could finish what they started.

As you can see, a seal of approval like that does not happen every day exactly. So yes, it was time to celebrate. We had an amazing night out, at the Chinese restaurant. Her choice, of course.

Trouble was, I had been quite bored yesterday afternoon, and was REALLY in the mood for Chinese. Lol. So I over ate. By quite some. I'm guessing that I ended up with a total of 3000-3500 calories yesterday, where I was supposed to do 2300.

The fix? Really not that hard to do. I will simply name yesterday Premature Indulgence Day, and skip it today. Instead I will go for the 2300 calories. It shouldn't even be hard to do.

Now, the real shocker is my weigh-in today. It's CRAZY high. I am all the way up at 93.0 kgs – DAMN! Two days ago I was 3½ (7 lbs) lighter!

I know the culprit, though. Sushi. Soy sauce. Salt. We all know it happens, and I am not really concerned about it – just annoyed. My fat percentage today is pretty much unchanged – this shows that it's not really a fat gain. No real damage done, just a LOT of water, and food processing. It's all gonna be okay.

So what is there to learn from this? Don't go to the Chinese restaurant when you're bored. It's generally a bad idea. Also, when you're on Kingkeld's rockin' diet, then you are still able to do dumb stuff, because you can switch days around.

Tonight, we're having a good friend over. We're going light on dinner, no matter what happened yesterday, this was already planned. We're going for the baked salmon and green beans that were planned for yesterday until we were invited out. This makes it even easier to accomplish a 2300 calorie RDI today. It shouldn't be hard at all.

Every December, we invite people over for a Cult Christmas Movie Night. Not many are able to attend this year, just one good friend. That's not gonna stop us from doing it though – we'd be doing it even with no guests. The good thing is that it'll be less of a feast, and more about the movies. This time around, considering yesterday, it's probably a good idea.

So, today's focus will be on PLENTY of water. I need all that salt flushed out, and I want the scale to go down again.

My dear buddy Ryan75 has challenged me to race him to the end of our weightloss journeys, getting 7 kgs off in a rush. I was 100 grams ahead two days ago. I think I fell HORRIBLY behind on this. Ryan, please look the other way. ;) LOL.

It's okay. I know this is temporary. Let him think he's in the lead. I'll get him.

So how are you guys going? What are your plans for the weekend?

Today, I'm thankful for:
- Daughter, her amazing skills and the schools recognizing it.
- The outlook to a good day.
- Staying in control of my calories today
- Cult Christmas Movie Night!

Have an amazing weekend, people. Life is good!

Today is a new day. I cheated yesterday too. I went over my points. It wasn't junk food, but I ate too much Hummus and crackers, watermelon, and a 100 calorie snack. It was worth it, but tomorrow is a new day :D

SO exciting for Daughter! OMG! Im speachless that is an incredible accomplishment and you must just be beaming with pride- and pshaw on the weigh in, life is to short to skip celebrations when warrented!

I appreciate it, Sarah - and yes - we are SUPER proud. This is truly an accomplishment for her. It's amazing. I'm glad that my "new program" allows me to simply shift the days. If anything, it'll actually make my end-of-the-week numbers look prettier, as I have an extra day to recover from Indulgence Day. Which leads me to think, when SHOULD I have my weekly "big" weigh-in day? Surely not after Indulgence Day? Maybe after 2nd Low Cal Day? That's where I'd think I would be the lowest weight of the week.

Congrats to your daughter Keld. That is very exciting. Salt. Evil. LOL!!! Nice to be able to change mid-stream and not feel like you "broke" your plan. Me? Oh a lb. up even though I did stay within my RDI. I was 219 three days in a row, 220 this morning ... who knows. Today IS indulgence day ... taking mom out for her birthday ... steak in my future!!! Will see what this next week brings.

Congratulations to your daughter, that is an amazing achievement and from the work of hers that I've seen, I have no doubt her success is fully deserved and this is just the beginning. I'm so happy you celebrated and had a great time - the scale will sort itself out in a couple days.

I was wondering about your bio pic. HOW COOL! Denmark sounds really interesting with a lot of interesting programs from your surgery to your daughters schooling. I watched the BBC special. VERY cool. It is actyally perfect for me. I just wanted more info to support the one guy said protein destroys the body by making it work harder... and not repair.... I don't believe that... but who knows.

Wow... Fantastic news for your daughter.... My youngest is a graphic designer / studio manager, for a creative media company and creates corporate designs, literature and websites. Such a fab environment to be in - hard, as you have to be creative and original, even when you don't feel like it... But rewarding to see your work In print, on signage and on-line. Well done to her - such an achievement. I think we will forgive the celebration Chinese.. At least - as you say - you can swop days around :-)

I'm a recent convert to sushi, and yes it's soy hopped up on ginger and wasabi that I love. No one ever got fat eating sushi, so I'm sure it will work itself out. Actually sushi is part of my Christmas plans, just something I really like about the social aspect of sushi, fun to share. Normally if someone tried to take something off my food order I'd stab them with a fork, but with sushi I love to share. Congrats on your daughter, the biggest thing is just the peace that comes from seeing your child find there way in life.
