the birthday cake

Saturday, March 08, 2008

It was one of my sons' birthday yesterday, and he had a massive chocolate birthday cake. 1 tiny portion contained just 250 calories. I was really good. I had just one slice of that cake, and in the evening had a pint of lager and a packet of crisps which I had budgeted for in my calorie intake.

Then it went all wrong. I was feeling a bit tired and sorry for myself (have had a difficult couple of weeks) so I drank another THREE pints of lager and ate another TWO packets of crisps.


Ah well, the calories have been consumed now, so too late to change that, BUT I figure, I drank some of it after midnight, so I can absorb some of those extra 800 cals in todays budget, and I guess another tin or packet could have been absorbed into the previous days budget, if I think in terms of 24 hours rather than individual days, so that leaves me just a bit over budget, and well within 2000 cals/day over the last 3 days. Just unfortunate that it was drunk all at once and not spread over those days as it gave me no chance to burn off the excess, which I bet has already made itself at home as more fat on my bottom lol.

Wasn't sure what my weekly weigh-in would reveal, as I felt sure some of that lager was still in my body as water this morning, but the scale revealed 2 pounds less than this time last week. (but I hope the loss isn't a reflection of dehydration, though I don't feel dehydrated)

That binge may even have helped me as I think I needed a bit of "sorry for myself" time. I'm ready to face a new day, and a new week, and will be working hard to stay on track, with nutrition and exercise. I've been struggling with water, so I'll try really hard to get my 8 glasses in each day this week.
