Yes, everything is fine.
I was panicking yesterday. I thought I had gained 0.6kgs but it was water retention - because I weighed again later and it was the same weight as last week so I'm OK.
But the drama was not in vain - I learnt an important lesson from this.
Avoid foods you don't know the calorie content of. Don't guesstimate.
Today I was out and about town - hadn't had my breakfast so decided to stop by this cafe/diner type place.
I looked at a couple of things I could have - it was nearing brunch time anyway so I thought I may as well have something more substantial.
Porridge with golden syrup - 200kcals, i can make better at home with cinnamon and less sugar.
Jacket with butter -320kcals - not too bad, but boring.
Spinach and cheese pie - 440 - OK not too keen on that.
Meat-Free Full English Breakfast - 859kcals - WHAT? When I have eggs, mushrooms and toast it never comes to that total! I remember having this a long time ago and logging it at 450 calories! Never again!
So what did I have? I had a nice chicken sub with lots of salad from Subway. 407kcals. Filling, healthy and tasty.
At the amusement park I had a few things that I now know will probably be higher than expected - a filet o fish in mcdonalds is around 350kcals - and burger king around 650kcals and mine was closer to the burger king one.
I won't guesstimate ever again. Weekly weigh ins only for me.
I'm thinking of getting a kettlebell to increase strength training and also get some more cardio in.
I walked a good 60 mins today and feeling good.
I will celebrate my maintenance if I can avoid gaining any weight for 1 full month.
Wish me luck!
