Day 15 - Football, Cosmos and water
Tuesday, February 05, 2013
So, superbowl happend this past weekend, the Ravens won and I lost. I lost because though I was within my daily limits for food and was careful about what I ate, I gaven in to temptation and drank. I drank with gusto, and I drank COSMOS!
I drank six cosmos. Six delicious 150 claorie drinks.
And though I was certainly very happy when I went to bed, and I woke up feeling like a million bucks, having slept a solid night through with no inturpution or dreams. I slept the sleep of the dead. It was blissful. I did look at my Sparks page about two hours after waking and realize. "Oh damn, I'm so screwed."
It's okay though. I'm not going to beat myself up over it. I logged the calories. I admited it. I took responsibility for my consumption for the first time. So often I will have one glass of wine, or one cocktail and not count it. But this time I did, and you know what? I will next time! It's not so bad as I thought. It reminded me of my goals.
So on Monday I drank water till I floated. I ate a healthy meal and stayed between my ranges. And I'm going to do the same today, but rather then a 35 minute run I'm going for my usual crazy gym Tuesday. Fifty minutes of spinning followed by 20 minutes of abs. It burns close to 650 net calories. It's intense and leaves me like a limp celery stick, but I'm happy I'm about to do it.
This isn't a race to the finish. It's a change. I've made it back down to 189lbs and I'm not stopping. Well Sparkles I'm on my way, now we need to make sure I don't get lost.
