kingkeld's Journal, 26 May 2012

It's Saturday, and it has been a whole week without counting calories, and without weighing in - and what a week it's been!

I've been sick - so sick that I don't remember when I was this sick ever - but I feel that I pretty much have recovered, and I'm good to go again.

I've had great days, where I've had no trouble sticking to plan, and I've had days where I didn't make it, and even a couple of days of doing bad, or so I feel.

Yesterday was BAD. I had the strangest cravings, and I was feeling all weird. I guess it came from not eating at all on Thursday. I'm sure that'll do weird things to one's body, right?

End result was that I pigged out on candy, something that I don't usually do, and had way too much. I also found myself grazing all day, eating things that I really felt that I needed, but that I (in hindsight) probably didn't. I need to be sharper on this. I can do it.

So, the end result after the first week is 78.9 kgs. I'm still well within my "Less than 80" goal, but I'd like to be closer to the 77 kgs still, or even below. I was hoping for that, but I can easily see where I went wrong, if I think about it.

It's all just a matter of doing a little more good and a little less bad.

I have to say it's been a relief to not count calories. It's been a relief to not weigh in.

I thought I was gonna feel like an addict and have cravings to do these things, but I really haven't. It's been easy to let go, but I can also tell that it's been a little too easy letting go of the rules. When you suddenly don't have to justify a certain RDI, then it's a lot easier to let things slide.

I wonder if a daily weigh-in will fix this? There was a comment the other day on that note, talking about determining "level of dedication" based on the day's weigh-in. Maybe there's a point there. I'm sorry, I forgot who wrote it, but it does make sense.

Also, I've been slacking on exercise, I kept telling myself that I'll do it later, but then I got sick and never did. Not a great excuse, but that's what happened. I'm back on track on that. I'm getting on the bike right after I type this.

My surgery is in three weeks, so I do need to be kinda focused on not letting my weight go crazy. I need to be in the right place (just around where I am now, preferably a little less) in three weeks. It's no biggie, I can do it - I just need to focus.

Being sick has made me NOT focus too much. I haven't done what I need to do thoroughly, just kinda winged it for the last three days.

Today is a new day. I am starting over on this. STILL not counting calories, STILL not weighing in. Simply eating right and doing reasonable things.

Let's go!

Today I'm thankful for:

- Three day weekend! Yay!
- A great, fulfilling morning breakfast with Wife.
- Getting on the bike. It's been a while.
- Getting to hang with Wife all weekend.

Life is good!

EDIT: 65 minute bike ride done! Now off for some shopping, a light lunch and then a walk on the shore side in the sun. Weather permits shorts, white t-shirt and sandals. Life is indeed good!

Oooooooooh a walk on shore side, in the sun - sounds fab. Glad to hear you are feeling better - I haven't been counting calories for a few days either - I meant to weigh in this morning but forgot!!! Oh well :-) By the way - I sent you a pm the other day (it was when you were sick, so may not have seen it). If by some chance you haven't received it, let me know and I will resend... It was a link for training/coaching stuff. Have a great day Pam
