kingkeld's Journal, 16 February 2013

Good morning!

It's a good day! It's Saturday. It's weekend. It's going to my newphew's birthday brunch bash.

Oh, and it's also ME BEING UNDER 90 KILOS! :)

It turns out to be working, the new motivation. I love it.

Looking back at last Saturday, I weighed in at 90.9 kilos. So, I am down 1.4 kilos, pretty much exactly what I was hoping for over a week, considering calorie intake etc. It's a good place to be, not too fast, not too slow. Just right for me, and just right for meeting my weight loss goal on time.

Again, meeting the exact number is not essential, but it's nice to reach the goals I set for myself, so this is what I'm counting on.

I did good yesterday. I had a little sidestep, but I compensated elsewhere.

Wife and I traveled to the neighbor town to buy birthday presents for my nephews. Being there, we decided - after a very reasonable lunch - to go sit at a café.

I really had the best intentions of simply having black coffee, but somewhere along the way a piece of cake snuck in. Not planned. I was really annoyed with this afterwards, but to be fair the cake was super delish. lol. Almost as good as what Wife does. :)

Looking at my calories, and realizing that I also wanted a slice of white bread or two at band practice last night, I simply skipped dinner. It did take a little effort mentally to do this, but I really wanted a nice weigh-in today.

It seems that it worked. :)

It's 7 AM now. I have been awake for a couple of hours, Wife and I just taking our time getting ready. Since we're brunching today, I am skipping breakfast. I'd rather wait a few more hours and eat then.

It's not really hard to do. In an hour we're gonna leave for the bus. Then we're traveling. And when we get there, it's time to eat. So my mind will be occupied with things along the way, and this makes it pretty much effortless.

It IS Indulgence Day today. I can more or less do as I please, as long as I don't go over 3500 calories. That's a LOT of calories. I will, however, try to put a serious effort into NOT over eating, even if I have a weight loss hall pass. I would LOVE to see my weight under 90 kilos again tomorrow.

Being under 90 tomorrow is not very likely though. I am thinking that part of my weight today - as every Friday - is that I'm slightly dehydrated. It always happens when I practice with The Black Peanut. We move around more than I typically would on a normal evening, and I drink no water but lots of coffee. That's GOTTA affect my water balance.

I always see low weigh-ins on Saturday mornings, and I always see a much higher number on Sundays. It's the same every week, so I still see the number as a proper weigh-in. It's about reaching a LOW number, and have that number be lower every week. The weigh-ins inbetween are much more for me to see and understand what's going on throughout the week. It's about cathing my faults, and kick me into gear. To remind me to not slack.

My loss today, compared to last Saturday, clearly shows that the drive is helping. I just need to keep doing what I'm doing, and it's all good.

I like the fact that I DO have a little room for a snack, if I compensate elsewhere. I like the fact that I don't really have the urge to have snacks even more. This is really what is helping me the most, I think. I'm getting into the habit of NOT snacking. I'm doing more little meals througout the day, but not bad stuff. After a week, it feels like it's becoming habit, and seeing that it's working is definitely motivating.

Wife baked peanut butter cookies last night. She's gonna bring them to the party, and she was really nervous about them being okay. She is - of course - being silly. Her baking is frickin' awesome!

Since Daughter is still sleeping, she asked me if I could sample them. I really - REALLY - didn't want to. I don't want the sugar rush, and I REALLY don't want the carb demon poking at me from 5:30 am. Hell no. However, I didn't want to not help her out either. What to do.

I told her about my problem with this, and I agreed with her that I'll taste it, if I can spit it out. lol. I know. It's rude. But if I am to survive this day and have ANY hope of not blowing my diet and maybe even remaining under 90 kilos, then I need to do this.

She was of course okay with it. The cookies were awesome, but fortunately I'm not too big on peanut butter in general, so I had no trouble getting rid of the cookie. Actually, it was a relief.

Today, I'm thankful for:
- UNDER 90!
- Morning coffee, without breakfast.
- Hanging with La Familia today. I'm looking forward to seeing them all.
- Focus on my weight loss journey. It'll make today so much easier.

Happy Saturday! Have an awesome weekend! Life is good!

EDIT:

Post weigh-in message from FatSecret:
"You lost 1.5 kg (1.6 %) since you last weighed in on Friday 15 Feb 13.
At that rate it will take you about 6 days to get to your goal weight."

I wish. :)

END OF EDIT.

Good gracious. Is it possible that anyone is not too big on peanut butter? I think your wife should be my new best friend. I love peanut butter and my family lives in MX. We have so much in common. LOL. CONGRATULATIONS on being under 90 kilo again. Rock star. (but of course you knew that)
