Why do I keep ruining my hard work?
Monday, November 05, 2012
After my "One Good Day" blog, I did a pretty good job, working out and eating pretty well. Then the week-end arrived...
We planned an halloween party at my appartement and we bought candies and chips. Many people who were supposed to come did not, so we were left with a lot of candies and chips. Those are basically all I ate this week-end. Except for 2 real meals (chichen strips wrap with french fries saturday for lunch and a big plate of my dad's spaghetti for dinner sunday + desserts).
The results are so bad: I was down almost a pound saturday morning (196.8), and back up 3 sunday morning (199.2) and I gained another pound sunday, so this morning I was back up 200.2!!!! You read that right! 200.2 POUNDS!
Today, I decided I really need to get rid of all that water I gained with the sodium I ate. So I'm fasting (I know, it's a bit controversial, but I really don't do that on a regular basis). I've been drinking a lot of water, 2 cups of green tea and a glass of water+lemon.
As I'm writting this, I'm cooking a big batch of vegetable soup. Tomorrow, I'll eat mostlt that, with some legumes for protein and a fruit or two. And wednesday, I'll be back to my regular diet.
I should be back down to 199 or 198 tomorrow morning. I did not work out today because fasting should not include intense activities. I won't work out tomorrow either because my calorie intake will be quite low.
I know, I should not deprive myself, that's why I'm only doing it today, to cleanse my body. I'm not a fan of all those potions, and mixtures to detox the body, but I just feel like I need to do something to gain my control back. I'm feeling great today, I feel like I've accomplish something by controling my hunger.
We'll see how it goes tomorrow. Until then, the smell of my soup is abit torturing me, but I'll manage.
Have a nice evening.
