kingkeld's Journal, 24 June 2013

Good morning!

Damn.... lol.

Well what can I say.

Every plan I made for yesterday was totally shot down. :/

I woke up with the best intentions. I slept great, but my body was tired.

The plan was originally to hit the gym, then just hang with Wife, but make it a Low Cal Day, as my Sundays are supposed to be.

My legs were hurting and so tired from the run I did Saturday - obviously I was NOT prepared for running, and it was just a spur of the moment thing, so I was aching bad afterwards. Because of this, I decided to NOT go walk, but give my legs a little rest.

Wife was not up for the challenge to go hit the gym, so I decided to simply skip it and go today, Monday. I could use a break too. It's not all on HER shoulders. :)

Then, all hell broke loose. Before you could say "Brunch buffet!", I was sitting at one with a couple of those people that you see way too rarely, and we were having a great time, having brunch. This wasn't in the plans, but I decided to just get back on track ASAP.

And I did. ASAP just wasn't the next few hours. LOL.

End result was that I was too stuffed to have dinner, so at least I did some moderation there. :)

Anyways, long story short, I ate too much. Way too much. It was probably a full Indulgence Day again, though I didn't count at all yesterday. I decided to just get back today.

...

So today I am on track. However, I needed a little SHOCK this morning.

Yesterday, I was so proud to say it's the first time in ages that I go through an Indulgence Day and not reach 80 kilos. Well, today I am 82.5! LOL!

It's a THREE-FRICKIN'-KILO gain since yesterday. I swear, I did NOT eat three kilos of food.

I know a LOT is water retention. I know a lot is still me being punished for having Chinese food Saturday. It's all good. But man, it hurts my pride to see 82.5. I feel like a frickin' slob. Bad. Bad. Bad.

I can tell that I am retaining a LOT of water. I can SEE it. I look and feel bloated and uncomfortable. I'm gassy. I pity those too close to me. I just feel bleh. No energy. No strenght. Damn - this is one of those days to remember next time I want to pig out.

...

So, the solution is pretty obvious: Do something about it.

Well, last night we were both exhausted and went to bed around 7:30PM. The alarm went off at 4:30 this morning, but I just couldn't wake up. I slept all the way to 6AM. I must really have needed sleep.

Waking up this late, I had to decide on either walk or gym. No time for both. I chose to walk, as I'd rather to go the gym with Wife. We're gonna go tomorrow, when it fits our schedules.

So, I walked today, and it was actually really nice to be moving. I like walking. I had no urge to run, though. It feels like I'm dragging a huge bucket of water around with me. Which, essentially, I do today.

I skipped breakfast, to get back into my "8 hour window" of eating. The window is "open" from 11 (lunch) to 7 today. I won't need it open that long though. Today is gonna be more like a 5 hour window, as I will have dinner before I go teach - so I'll be eating at 4PM. Calories are already calculated - I'll end up around 750 calories if I have all the food planned. I'm not sure I will, to be honest. They way I feel, I have NO urge to eat. None. Zip.

Then again, maybe that'll change in a few hours. Right now I am just sleepy and drained of energy. Bleh.

Please someone remind me to not eat like this again. LOL. Lesson learned. At least for a week or two. :)

...

So... this is the bad part of my journal today. Revealing my stats from yesterday. Sadly, I can't post the picture - I'm writing from work - but I can tell you what they said. It's a mess. I had NO real exercise yesterday, but I did do some walking (mostly back and forth to the buffet! hey - it all counts, right?). I did do some movement, but nothing compared to a normal day in my life.

Calories burned: 2139 (goal: 2800)
Very Active Minutes: 10 (goal: 30)
Distance: 3.51 kilometers (goal 8.00)
Steps: 4527 (goal 10000)

I did not meet ANY goals. Not even close. Boo.

This is something that I won't allow to happen for a while. I can't have this happening. I need to do better - MUCH BETTER - than that.

...

So, today - tired or not - I will do better. I will reach every single goal. One is already reached. I'm past 30 very active minutes. I'm at 52, and I expect it to climb to at least 60. I will reach my steps and distance goal too, and I WILL burn over 2800 calories today. This is a MUST and a minimum requirement. I gotta fix this.

...

Now, I know I sound like I am going totally overboard because I gained weight over the weekend. You might be right. However, I feel that I need to focus and sharpen the knife a bit after such a slobby day yesterday. I need to put my mind in the right place.

Having had two days like these makes it easy for me to sneak into a 3rd day, then a 4th, etc. You get the point.

It's essential to be on track today, and do good. It really matters to me, as I would like to reach a new low again Saturday. This is a challenge, as I have quite a lot of extra weight to drop for it now. Damn Sunday! :) Still, even if I had done great Sunday, I might have gained water weight still from Saturday's chinese food. Who knows.

So, focus is on doing well today and onwards. That's all I can do anyways.

Today will more or less be a Low Cal Day. Not by choice, really, but it's simply how it looks like it'll turn out. That's fine. It'll make me feel great.

...

Today, I'm thankful for:
- Full focus.
- A LONG night's sleep. I slept almost 10 hours!
- Teaching weight loss tonight.
- Morning coffee at work.
- Wife.

Happy Monday! Let's go drop some lbs! Life is good!

Don't beat yourself up :) Think of all the weight you have lost! I read your journal every day, it inspires me! Keep going King!!!!

I appreciate it, slacker36. I know I've come a LONG way, but these days the focus is (and has to be) on those last few lbs. And if I keep pushing myself away from them, then surely I won't reach them - right? :) It's all good though. I'm more than happy with where I am, but I can't STAND losing control. I'm a freak about that. :)

You know you will lose that weight, it is as you say water weight, it is not 'fat' weight. It may take you a couple of days but you will definitely get it off. And life is for living Keld, there will be more days like that when spontaneous happy happens and you cannot berate yourself for having a happy day. Food is the stuff of life. So on regular days you just eat less, fast longer, whatever you can do, plus exercise as you do, and being back on track you will get back to your 'normal'. Now have a lovely day, glad you enjoyed your walk. All is well. You are in a good place and once you have pee'd your heart out, tomorrow will be a new weight I am sure. I am also glad you listened to your body and got all that sleep.

am I hallucinating or did you erase a journal? I love it when you said "all hell broke loose" brunch buffet. Don't eat like that again Mr. Keld!!! (your reminder). I had really bad PMS and had a buffet in my house for a few days. Gained 3 pounds but I didn't gain them till 2 or 3 days later HA. .... . Back on track MR! :-)

LOL, Lizzy. I definitely did not erase a journal. I'd never do that. I think I did miss writing one a few days ago, but I honestly don't remember when and why. So many things going on, the days end up a blur. :) It's a good thing.
