The weather here has been hot, just like last week. I am tired of this heat as it seems to be draining me of all energy. I had a fairly lousy week diet wise. The last few weeks I'd been taking my cheat day on Sunday for various reasons, but still having a good sized dinner on Saturday, so it was almost like having 2 cheat days. Well this week, it was my brother's birthday on Monday and we had a big turkey dinner; turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes... I was pretty good with that meal, a small amount of mashed potatoes and a small serving of dressing with about 10 ounces of turkey. Overall not too bad. But then there was dessert. My mom makes this layered dessert with chocolate graham crackers between layers of vanilla pudding topped with a chocolate frosting... it's soo good. She also made a cinnamon roll cake that I found online. That recipe calls for 3, yes 3 cubes of butter and it was almost impossible to stop eating it!
So this weeks numbers look like this:
Weight : 210.6
Gain : 1.6
Total : 106.6
Yep, I gained and I'm not surprised at all. This week I've gone back to Saturday as my free day, I think the Sunday experiment is over, it was too easy to cheat a little on Saturday then cheat some more on Sunday.
On top of all of that, I just don't feel good. My back is causing me a massive amount of discomfort deep inside and the pinching of nerves is causing me to have a lot of left hip pain, which is never any fun. Also, the last couple of days my left upper arm bone (which is always partially out of socket (shoulder) due to injuries) has been moving around in the socket causing me much pain and limiting the strength and usefulness of my arm. All of this has caused me to have a dull aching headache at the base of my skull... Ain't life grand?
Sometimes you're the windshield, sometimes you're the bug, right now I feel like the bug.
