I'm pretty sure Isaac Newton did NOT say "What comes down, must go up", yet here we are.

I'm up a full kilo since yesterday. I do know that I followed my rules as I'm supposed to, stayed within RDI and did my exercise, so I have absolutely no worries about it.

I think the culprit was the lunch. I had a big, nice omelette, and a HUGE salad. Very low amounts of dressing, and carefully registered calories. It's all good. I did have quite a bit of (salty) olives, and I'm guessing that these (along with the weighty meal) is holding on to water. No biggie. I don't need to lose the water right now, I need to lose the fat. :)

Last night I decided to have a little bit of ice cream. We have this über rich chocolate ice cream left over from the holidays, and I opted to have 100 grams, 250 calories. I actually could've said no, I was even mentally strong enough for it, but at the same time I felt like it. I had the calories available in my budget, so I decided to go for it.

I did make it a little "food control" game. We were watching movies, and I wanted the ice cream to last as long as possible, without actually ignoring it.

So I made a rule for myself: One little bite, like half a tea spoon, with AT LEAST five minute intervals. It was surprisingly easy. I had this little bowl of ice cream last more than TWO HOURS! Of coruse, it was all melted at the end, but being thick and rich, it was still super deliscious.

I say well done. I think I have NEVER had a bowl of ice cream last that long in my entire life!

...

I did my workout today, but I decided to pass on the bicycle ride. My legs need a break - but it's been three days in a row where I have done a full hour of biking. So I think it's a good thing to give them a rest.

...

Technically, today is Indulgence Day. I'm not fully ready for one of those yet. Trouble is, we have guests coming for dinner tonight, and it's also the day we go shopping and usually have lunch out.

My approach today will be:

1. One egg for breakfast, just to get things going a bit.
2. Possibly just an omelette with salad for lunch, replacing the buffet that I normally will have on Saturdays. Unless there is something on there that is very okay to eat. Then I will go for that and stay within reason.
3. Enjoy my dinner fully. Even if I go over my RDI. With my approach to breakfast and lunch, I will get nowhere close to an Indulgence Day RDI, and will be MUCH closer to a regular RDI.
4. I have pre-recorded all my foods, and left PLENTY of room for dinner in my budget. I have calculated a dinner portion that is MUCH larger than what I think I will be able to eat. That way I'm pretty safe.

Today, I'm thankful for:
- A great night's sleep!
- Visit from my awesome nephew and his girlfriend.
- Feeling totally in control of a Saturday with guest.
- Having exercised!
- Morning Coffee!
- Spending the day with Wife!

Today's gonna be a nice day. Life is good!

They have a saying in running "Run your race". The idea is you do your speed and not try to do what someone else is doing, or what you "think" you should do (Run faster). Anyway, sounds like you have a good plan for today, so run your race! XD. I am going to stick to RDI today, but I did a long ride this AM. I have a plan for meals of the healthy variety, and that is my approach today, keep on plan! "Run my race".

Like many ppl say dont deny your self of what u crave. Hey least you stay in your cals that awesome :)

bonthronm, I am a firm believer in "eat what you want, within RDI". If we crave something, have it. If we don't - then we'll have that snicker's bar (or whatever it is) calling us for ages. Of course, that has to be counter balanced with not waking up the carb monster. :)

2 hours? Wow. I imagine it must be well melted. Good thing I don't like ice cream. Have a productive day, Keld.

It's so true! We all have those things that we at one time might have eaten in triplicate, and now we're having to adjust and maybe omit. It's HARD. Allowing yourself to indulge keeps you on the course while giving you a earned reward, or at least a reward you will work to earn later! Chocolate is a biggie for me, as well. So, either not eating the full serving, or eating the serving and compensating somewhere else, or maybe walking a little longer, but knowing that's what you're doing. That's the trick. That is why I love the chocolate protein shakes. I get the chocolate without the bad stuff, know I'm fitting into RDI, and working out. Win-Win. Keep running!!

Ha, you have just reminded me of a tub of Ben & Jerry's I have left over from Christmas...I had hidden it behind a wall of home cooked healthy freezer meals. I may have to build a little into tomorrows plan, though I will eat it with the smallest teaspoon I can find, it will not las long. You're right not to fret over a small fluctuation, it's not a gain. :)
