kingkeld's Journal, 10 January 2013

Good morning!

I sleps amazingly well last night - and didn't wake up a single time (I think) until the alarm clock went off. I need more nights like this, please. :)

So, it seems that today is the day I get the punishment for Tuesday's shenanigans. LOL. I am up half a kilo after a "phew"-moment yesterday seeing no damage after making stupid decisions Tuesday afternoon.

So, I am up a pound, but I am down a whopping 1.5% fat. This of course indicates that what's happening is NOT fat gain, but just fluctuation. I'm okay with it, but I really, really would like to see some numbers in the 80's soon. I need that.

Staying around that same weight for so long makes it a lot harder to do this. I am confident that I'm doing okay though, that that I'll push through it.

Yesterday WAS hard. Thank you for all the comments, and your support! I love the way that buddies pitch in whenever someone needs it. Thanks, once more. So many tips and good advice.

Yesterday went nothing like what I had expected, calorie wise. I had half a breakfast before gym. Then I was supposed to have the other half when I got to work.

Well, stupid Keld forgot to bring the breakfast, so I ended up having a 20 cal tomato soup. NOT yum, but it worked.

Lunch? I was supposed to go have a salad or pita with ham along with Wife, but she ended up not being around, and I ended up skipping lunch. I replaced it with a 90 calorie soup. Not yum.

So, coming home at 3:30 PM I was hungry, and had my 2nd breakfast. It was bleh, but it was okay to satisfy me.

Dinner was the planned hard shell tacos, with low fat ground beef, a little cheese and a salad. I liked it, and it wasn't heavy.

...and then the munchies came along. I had a few different things, and this is probably also weighing me down today. It all ended up okay, though, I stayed within my RDI.

This is what I generally preach to others, and what I've practiced a long way down the road. "Eat what you want, but stay within RDI". I did exactly that.

Of course, one can't live off low fat ice cream and cookies alone. One needs REAL food, so I can't do this every day. I need to eat better than this.

I think things would have been better had I had the planned meals. Sometimes things just don't go the way we expected.

...

I am starting to slowly feel a difference from the gym. I've only been there three times, but I feel something. I'm not sure it's just psychological, but does it really matter? It's a great feeling! I feel stronger, and I feel that I am really getting something out of it.

Yesterday I figured out to put a 45 sec. "ding" counter on my phone. Now I can listen to MY OWN music at the gym, and work out with the 45 shift that is needed to stay in pace with everyone else. Not that there really is "anyone else". At 7 AM, I am the first one there, and so far only a couple of people have come in during my workout time. It's nice. I like it that way.

So, today I have my meals planned fairly well.

I have eaten and recorded breakfast.
I have lunch ready. Leftovers from yesterday. Mine will simply be a salad, along with grilled ground beef. No cheese. No taco shells.
Dinner? I'm not sure. But I have PLENTY of calories to put into it. I probably even have calories for dessert again. Nice!

Oh, and of course today is cake day! It just got a whole lot easier. A lot of the ladies at work have new year's resolutions about losing weight, and have asked Wife to make a little more healthy sides, along with the baddies. So now there will not only be cake, candy and cookies and fruit, there will also be little carrots and cucumbers and other things. I like that!

Today I'm thankful for:
- A great night's sleep!
- Down 1.5% body fat!
- Outlook to a great day!
- Wife! Veggies at work!

Happy Thursday! Life is good!

Hurray for your own music! I had those type issues when I did couch to 5k, now with smart phones anything is possible! Good luck avoiding cakes. I will try and make healthy mongolian today. Daughter is already trying to hit me up about steak night somewhere!! WTF I tell you my wife is behind it all.

Great idea... Carrots and cucumber.... Gives you something to chew, to satisfy the munch reflex.... Even better with a low fat dip (I like, very low fat mayo with a squeeze of tomato sauce - ie Marie rose sauce, or sweet chilli sauce for a nice savoury kick). I am sure you can feel the difference after going to the gym.... It gets everything moving :-)

Love the idea of the crunchy veggies. It really helps me! Focus Keld. Gym is going great that is stupendous! Staying within the RDI great! Soon. Soon you will see those numbers you are longing for!

I'm about as focused as I can get, Moose! :) It's all good. I saw my body fat percentage go down, that's almost money in the bank on an upcoming weight drop. :)

Indeed Keld!!! I know!!! Just trying to cheer you on ... keep you from those "uh-oh" moments!! Looking forward to your next DROP!!!

Great job, Keld staying within your RDI! I hate it when I have a plan and things get in the way. Throws me off track for the whole day! Hope today is better.
