The Good, The Bad, and the Protein-y.

Wednesday, June 28, 2017

I'm back from vacation and up about a pound and a half. Honestly, I'm good with that as I thought it'd be worse.

What I did well:

1. I did the Grouse Grind!
Length: 2.9 kilometres (1.8 miles)
Elevation Gain: 853 metres (2,800 feet)
Base: 274 metres above sea level (900 feet)
Summit: 1,127 metres (3,700 feet)
Total Stairs: 2,830
Average Time: On average it takes up to an hour and a half to complete the hike.

(I did it in 1:33.)

2. I went for a few runs in Seattle and Vancouver.

3. I walked a lot.

4. I had my protein drinks at least once a day, and sometimes 2+ per day.

5. I ate a lot of fruit.

6. I ate breakfast at home and made my own egg whites while others had french toast and whatnot.

What I didn't do so well:

a. I suck at rejecting peer pressure. My family is not very healthy and I caved at every single pastry and TimBit presented to me. Which was a lot.

b. Because I wasn't eating right, my runs turned into walks. Sometimes very short ones because my stomach wasn't cooperating.

c. I ate a lot of veggie burgers and fries. Even if the veggie burger was my only option, I could have at least gotten a salad or something other than fries, but 97% of the time, I didn't.

So, I came home up 3.5 pounds which immediately dropped down to about 1.5 up from when I left. I'm back on track and trying to be super well behaved until I leave again ... which is this weekend. :/ This is a tough time of year for schedule/consistency/willpower
.

My next trip is going to be even harder in some ways. I won't have the peer pressure on the pastry side, but I assume I'll have extremely limited options for veggie food. I'll have protein powder on hand again to help but it's going to be less than ideal. All I can do is try my best and get back on track as soon as possible.

    Great job on all the successes. Non successes are opportunities to learn and change. Try not to think this is hard but this is a challenge I will conquer. Have a great trip.
