My Motivation for Today

Thursday, May 23, 2013

I did much better with eating yesterday and easily stayed in range. I got in 120 plus minutes of intentional exercise plus power walking. I am feeling better. My weight is still up. I don't understand how eating cake for two days, can do this.

Now I did not eat a whole cake, I ate on piece of cake at two meals for two days.
So that is maybe 2000 calores. How does 2000 calories equal 1 pound. Oh it is because the 3500 calorie per pound is wrong, and scientists have known that for years. Each pound lost is much more than 3500. For me eating an extra 1000 calories per day, while doing less exercise probably accounted for the amount necessary to gain one pound per day.

That is a scary though. So I am now on day 7 of my no cheesecake no cake streak. I think I will make it a no cake streak.

I am a work in progress.

    Don't worry. You have got this. You have to enjoy yourself every once in a while... You know, a life with no cheesecake is just not worth it!!! A life with a very occasional piece is perfect! You're doing great and making good choices every day. Watch the sodium and drink your water and the pounds will come off ASAP!

    If you ever figure out the pattern, there's probably a book you can write that will net you a bunch of money. So many things come into play with weight gains and losses: calories in, water in, elimination, exercise. Plus I'm not sure the body will metabolize an entire cake the same way it would salmon, a baked potato, some veggies.

You just need to decide if the cake was worth what you're dealing with emotionally now.
