kingkeld's Journal, 17 May 2013

Good morning!

Wow, I'm up TWO KILOS! LOL.

Yesterday was such a weird day. I totally blew it on the 600 calories I had planned, but fortunately it won't affect my vacation calorie plan. Phew. It's close, but no real damage other than the weight gain today.

Obviously, most of the gain is just food processing and fluid. My scale gives me the Err4, which means fat percentage is lower than 5. It's all water!

So, what happened? Wife's damn cakes happened. Well, sort of.

I felt kinda weird all day. My stomach was acting up, and I really felt beside myself. I decided - stupidly - that I would comfort myself with JUST ONE DAMN COOKIE.

Well, that cookie completely woke up the carb monster. One cookie became several, and cheese cake follow. Dammit.

Along with that, and because of my bad brain not thinking straight, we decided to have BBQ dogs for dinner. LOL. I know. Stupid, stupid, stupid. Hey, at least we did a very reasonable and light potato salad to go with it. It was delish. :)

Anyways, total damage for the day ended up around 2800 calories. WAY over what I had planned, but just about what I would be burning (and normally would be SUPPOSED TO EAT for the day).

The damage, so to say, is two kilos on the scale today. Meh. Who cares. It'll come off again, and there's gonna be plenty more temporary gain the next few days. It's all good.

Looking at the calorie intake statistics on my calorie counter, I can still do a FULL INDULGENCE DAY the next 4 days, while in Paris, if I play my cards right today.

It won't be hard to play my cards right. My stomach feels FUNKY after yesterday's feast. I am looking forward to a LOW CAL day today.

If I don't make it today, I won't be too hard on myself. I'm doing all this long term, and I'm on vacation in just a few hours - and when I wake up tomorrow morning, it'll be in a hotel room in frickin' PARIS! :)

Wife and I are so excited going, I can't wait! I just hope my stomach settles a little more. It's a feeling to remember, this one. Something I'd like to avoid.

It's not really that I did THAT many bad decisions yesterday. It's really more that I did them on a day where I had decided to NOT do them. Had this been a day for me to have a normal calorie intake, I would have just shrugged and said "meh", but since I had decided it to be a Low Cal Day, and I wanted to save those calories for Paris, then it bothers me.

Still, the damage is done, and there's nothing to do about that. Moving on. :)

So, today is the last weigh in I will be doing until Wednesday morning. That's a LONG time from now. I wonder what the scale will say. 85? 100? LOL. Hopefully not 100.

Again, it doesn't matter. I know what to do to make the kilos drop, and I'll be going right back into it. No problemo.

I'm not sure how much journaling I'll be doing either. It's always uncertain when you're out. So if nothing else, I will see you all on Wednesday.

Today, I'm thankful for:
- Suffering a little punishment from stupid decisions yesterday. This is a good thing.
...and morning coffee! :)

Have a great week! Life is good!

I can visualise your 'carb monster' I bet it is a dirty beige colour, and ugly with big pointy ears and black teeth. I always get a picture in my head when you mention it in your journals. Enjoy Paris. :-)

That carb monster is a killer. But like you say, no real damage so don't sweat it. Have an amazing time in Paris!!!

Doesn't it always start with just one damn cookie? That gave me a laugh. So what if you indulged a little too much? Dust yourself off and try again. Maintaining weight is like waking up to a new battle every morning. Have fun in Paris :)

Have fun in Paris. I speak Spanish quite well and I want to begin learning French. I am unusual for an American-born person with all my grandparents and six out of eight great-grandparents born in the USA. I am Polish, English and French heritage and probably Native American back to my paternal grandmother's grandmother. I am worried about carbs now a bit. I bought potatoes, maybe it is time to buy sweet potatoes and bake those instead. The easiest way to lose weight is low carb as it kills your appetite too I noticed. There were days when 800 calories were a breeze.
