Day 3 of a planned 3 days of eating
Blood sugar 108 mg/dL

My results on my ‘mini challenges’ yesterday:

🏃🏾 Run 7 miles - 👍🏾 (Not the best idea to do this BEFORE my workout but there was a thunderstorm coming and the gym wasn’t open yet)
🏋🏾 Lift weights - 👍🏾 (I was surprised I was able to lift at the same level as the previous day, however protein powder in orange juice before the workout helped restore my glycogen levels a bit to help me get through the workout. For diet reasons it would be better to let my body convert fat through gluconeogenesis, but, in the past, that seems to provide a lot less lifting strength than ‘carbing up’ though food)

However, after all that, I sat around all day watching reality TV eating truffles 😊

I can’t suck down 150+ carbs/2000+ calories a day and not get fat. Every time I have a 3+ day weekend I jump into the high 170’s and-stay-there for a week or more (this means I have gained ‘real fat’ not just ‘water weight’).

The plan for this 3-day weekend was to exercise hard to drive the glycogen down. Yes, this will also reduce some ‘water weight’ (my cells require water molecules to store the glycogen), but, I also hoped it would cause my body to ‘store’ less fat by redirecting more of the incoming carbs to restoring the glycogen, and also to have to turn to burning some of the fat).

Anyway, just a theory and a test. Didn't seem to work, but, at least I am not in the ‘high 170s’…

However, Today I will try to ‘water fast’ at least until noon. I definitely need to ‘slow down’ on the ‘binging’ 😊

My original plan was, no-weight-workout-today! But, @PrincessValerie wants to go to the gym so off I go for the third day in a row.

I will still do a 7 mile run today.

Again, I could avoid ALL this “drama” if I would simply stop-eating-so-many-carbs, Buuut I am ** having so much fun ** taking a damn break and enjoying my 3-day weekend 😊 These breaks allow me to do the normal ‘no solid food’ fasting I do during the week.

😎 Life is Good! Have a great day everyone!
