I was at the pharmacy when it opened to get new medicine and took the prescribed two pills in my car outside. Was struck with a cold too - a lot of snot running everywhere and a little fever made me go home and sit in front of the teve for a while. But not without a detour to the food store....
So this is my day yesterday:
5.00 Woke up, had some coffee weighed in, panicked, had no breakfast.
9.00 At the pharmacy and passed food store on my way home.
11.00 "Brunch" sandwiches with smoked salted pork and loads of tea - 2 239 cal in one meal.
13.00 Feeling like a boa constrictor, tracked the meal and realised that if I did not eat any more during the day I would still be under my calorie limit.
15.00 Went for a walk in the woods, looking for mushroom. The cold miraculously seemed to have disappeared. Doggy was happy. Found very few chanterelles but walked of some calories - yay! But it was uncomfortable to walk as I still felt really full.
20.00 Decided that the smoked pork that was left would have to be eaten this day otherwise I would ruin the next day too (anybody recognize this argument?) Added some cocos dessert to that (and loads of tea again) and ended up with an "overdraft" of calorie account with 433 calories.
22.00 Went to bed.
Today I woke up - and all those extra kilos from yesterday was gone! It is a bit scary that the medicine has such an effect - and it makes it obvious that the scale is a bad judge of how I am progressing. Looked back at my numbers for the week - and if I get back on track I still have a chance of losing some weight at the "regular" weigh-in tomorrow because if I add my calorie sums up I can lose another pound... anyway that motivates me to eat healthy today and keep on working towards my goal.
But arguments and intelligence did not help me yesterday when the scale jumped - I totally panicked and went for comfort in food. The good side of it is that I have not been secret about it and I dared to track it.
