Damn you Mr 3am Meat Pie!

Monday, February 25, 2013

Ah the best laid plans... out the window they went again. :)

My wife and I attended a Linkin Park concert last Thursday. It involved a trip to Auckland and an overnight stay with a friend. It was supposed to be "dinner and a show" but turned into "dinner and a show and 4 hours drinking cocktails in a karaoke bar".

So no doubt a few billion cals were consumed that night thanks to the cocktails and the beef steak & Cheese pie I bought on the way home. I was starving as dinner had been 8 hours earlier. This is one of the big problems with not getting head-to-pillow at a reasonable time!

The pie was disgusting, but it tasted soooo damn good. You know what I mean.
So with the lack of sleep, cocktails and pie you can imagine that my diet was messed up.

We managed to be very sensible with everything else so it ended up not being too bad. And we did manage to burn off some cals walking from the venue to the bar which was a good 35mins away.

I've managed to recover from the lapse but it, yet again, has highlighted how 1 day (or night) can ruin a whole week of work. But soldiering on, I've just passed my 20kg weight loss mark so that is a big mental boost.

    There is always another day, and as long as you see and acknowledge what happened then just accept... these things sometimes happen... It is not the end of everything... there is always tomorrow.. emoticon

    Cheers guys! The whole "week of work" thing relates to me keeping my daily cals as near to the minimum allowance as possible. I have a sedentary lifestyle so there is no point maxing out my daily intake if I know I'm not going to use it during the day. Each week I refrain from eating about 2000cal that I'm allowed, but don't need.
    Well, I consumed that much in 4 hours that night. And this was on top of my minimum for the day. So it's more of a mental/will power thing. I negated 7 days of "having the will power to not eat as much as I was allowed" by consuming those cals in one night.
    But I'm not beating myself up over it. It was the first time I'd been to a cocktail bar in months.

    emoticon having fun with your wife and friends! 1 day cannot undo a whole weeks worth of work, but it is easy to believe that. New day, new chance to reign it back in! Glad you were able to recover and get back on track!
