kingkeld's Journal, 25 July 2013

Good morning!

I survived yesterday with no trouble. I was nowhere near the max of my RDI, as a matter of fact I had 500 left. At least, so I think I did. Eating at restaurants is always hard, when you have to guesstimate your calorie intake.

What I did do what to enjoy a good, large lunch, count everything to the best of my abilities, and move on. I had an ice cream with the family later - not the smalles one, but by no means a large on either.

And that's it. That's all I had.

On the way to the train home, I felt the carb monster calling - probably the thought of being able to buy chocolate for the train ride, along with the fact that dinner would be late and outside my feeding window. I had the urge to eat, but not real hunger.

So, I ended up buying a 100g chocolate. I just couldn't NOT buy it. However, being a big boy I manned up, and threw it in the trash. I really am proud of this - it was a tough decision and I am happy that I had clear thinking for a moment and happened to go by a trash can at the station. And fortunately, the trash can was gross enough to NEVER want to come back to. :)

As we came home, I realized that I felt no real hunger, and I decided to skip dinner. We were gonna just go get some food at the pizza place - I was gonna have a very reasonable pita with ham - but I opted out. I'm proud I did. This left me safely in the clear on my calories.

I moved around quite a lot yesterday, of course. Check out my stats here. :)


...

Of course, I'm NOT down in weight today. :/ I do think that lunch yesterday held my weight drop back, and I wasn't expecting one. At least I didn't gain further weight, so that's a good start.

So, today I'm in the safe zone on my calories. I'm gonna do right and I'm gonna do well, knowing that both Friday and Saturday will have food challenges for me. Today need to be straight.

I had lunch a little bit early - I was hungry at 10, even if my feeding window normally "opens" at 11. Still, I didn't have any "real" meal since noon yesterday, and only thing I had other than that was ice cream at 4 pm.

...

Today, my feeding window will close a little earlier than 7 PM anyways. I will be working at the gym, and my last meal will be dinner before I go, so probably at 4:30 pm or so.

...

This is is, of course, town festival week here. It's food challenges EVERYWHERE! I just try to stay away from the worst of the challenges, and I think I'm doing okay. It won't by any means be perfect, but so far so good.

I'm happy that I stayed good on my calories yesterday, and I think I'll be doing okay as an overall result at the end of the week. Still, many things can/will happen, and there is no telling where I'm gonna end up.

I'll just have to be back on track starting Sunday (but, obviously, do my best up until then still), and really hit it hard from then. This is why I don't like festive times and vacations. THey're such a frickin' challenge.

But overall, things are great. Tings are fun. I'm eating good foods, and I feel that I am generally in charge of things. Sure, I stumble and fall, but I seem to be able to get to pick myself up and at least not gain weight overall.

It's really hard, though, to see how things truly are when I have these severe ups and downs on my calorie intake. It's super hard to see through what is actual fat loss/gain, and what is simply me "eating a lot", even if the calories are low.

So, overall, it's all good. :)

Today, I'm going out to check out the town with a friend. Wife might go too. Sadly, the weather is nowhere near as nice as it has been the last few weeks. Still, it'll be a fun day.

...

Today, I'm thankful for:
- A nice long night's sleep.
- A great track record yesterday on both calories in and out.
- Wife.
- Vacation time.

Congrats on throwing that chocolate bar away and recognizing that it was the 'habit' of eating one on the train that had caused you to buy it! I so commend you. I hang my head in shame as I did not do so well. I was given a chocolate bar and sadly ate the whole thing even tough I did try to stop at half. I know I cannot eat chocolate. Not one piece. If the bar is open, the bar is consumed. I am a chocolate junky - sigh. I will have to make yesterday an indulgence day for me as I had already 'indulged' in way too much real, good food and then along came this chocolate bar and attacked me :) I am surprised that you didn't drop a little weight if you only had that one big meal, because it was only one meal (and a little icecream) but likely restaurant food has additives, salt, etc, so perhaps tomorrow. Enjoy whatever you get up to today, hope the weather improves enough to let you have fun. As always you are a daily dose of inspiration :) Wow, can't get over you throwing away that chocolate bar. That sure took balls - don't know if FS will censor that or not :)

LOL, I actually forgot about throwing away the chocolate! WHAT WAS I THINKING!?! :) I'm glad I did. I did NOT need the 600 calories, and the day ended where is SHOULD end. Today is a great day also. I have passed all tests. :)

Good on you for throwing it away. By all means enjoy it when you truly want it but after thinking it over you chose to value yourself and your goals more than a few $$ for the chocobar. Yay you! I actually pulled something out of my home trash once ... I'm thinking it was a choco iced crème filled eclair .. and after that I always smash to bits the 'thing' I'm discarding to avoid such stupidity until I can get a hold of my brain again.
