I haven't recorded it because I don't really want it to be true and I know it will reverse if I give it time, but the last two times I stepped on the scale I was up .2 (yes 2 tenths of a pound is all) pounds. I don't think I was eating enough calories...by about 300-500. So, I have started eating a bit more and spacing things out a bit differently to shake things up a bit. I also have been active everyday. I jogged/walked two days ago so yesterday I knew if I did that again I'd be really sorry, and I knew we wouldn't get our nightly walk in, so I took my dad's bike and had fantasies about going around the neighborhood 3 times (6 miles, no prob, right?!). Well, round one was HARD. My thighs were killing me! So, I stopped after one, had lunch, did some homework, then went again. So, not bad.
Last night we went to Red Robin, which we almost NEVER go to (thank goodness...too many temptations). I am really happy though because they started serving their fries in a little round container instead of a very random amount on your dish. I had about a third of them and was done (along with the turkey burger, no aoli). Turns out the fries are a vessel to get the delicious honey mustard, which I did not order because it is packed with calories. So, Red Robin clocked in under 700 (which was fine, I was around 600 for the day up until then).
I was also proud of myself because I did NOT order a diet drink. My rule is only on weekends and so far I am sticking to it. Club soda with lime does the trick.
Also, I always have an ice cream cone at the end of my day. I was full last night but wanted something sweet. We have these truffles from Trader Joe's which are 50 calories each and I thought about having one...then I quickly realized I would not be able to stop at one. To avoid a truffle disaster, I made my cone and thoroughly enjoyed it.
Jogged/walked today...might try the bike again tomorrow!
