Back after a brief respite

I haven’t blogged in a few days… or done much of anything, really. I had a jam-packed weekend (more to come on that) and then took a couple much-needed “mental health days” off of work.

Sunday was a great, active day. I am a little stressed, as I was not able to log my cals for either Lunch or Dinner. We took a day trip to Sarasota/Siesta Key, and thanks to the Botanical Gardens in the morning, I easily hit my 5,000 step goal. But we ate lunch at the cafe there, and I had no idea how to log the yummy salad I had. I don’t think the calories were awful, it was like chunks of chicken, a few pecan slivers, and couscous, which I purposely avoided eating, due to carbs. After the beach, we hit up a cute local place for dinner, and I sort of over-indulged. I had two cocktails (bad, bad!) and then a 10oz filet mignon and these incredible roasted red potatoes. So, more carbs and I know, 10oz is way too much. I know, but I ate it. Then Sunday night happened…. took friends up on a last minute invite downtown and what started with a couple low-cal drinks led to “I don’t care” and countless shots. Of everything. It was muy malo. Needless to say, I got wastey-pants, which inevitably led to getting sick. So hopefully I got rid of most of the cals?

Monday and Tuesday I was off from work. I literally did NOTHING. I basically slept for 2 days straight. Of course, I made some time to eat, but luckily I wasn’t awake enough to be tempted too much by food. Today was my first day back to work, and I didn’t eat until I got home a few minutes ago, so I’ve only had 144 cals today (4 from my morning 5-hr and then a bunch of veggies when I got home). Planning on cooking some chicken later, so I should end around 350-500 cals, depending on how I cook it, I think.

Not a great day, but, I’m sorta hoping the last few days even out my crazy Sunday Funday and I still manage a loss this week.

So lots going on, and nothing going on at the same time. I did take my 4-wk Progress Pics over the weekend as well. Will be posting those perhaps later this evening.

I know I haven’t had the best few days, for different reasons, but I’m really trying to get back on track and tomorrow is a new day and a new opportunity to do well. On the plus side, I’ve been thinking about fast food, and I did avoid eating anything. At least that’s one win! It’s been nearly 5 weeks without fast food, and I’m looking forward to making that many more.

  1. Glad you’re back and hope you get back on track! I’ve been really good up until today, which ended up being a cheat day because our lunch at the sales meeting was different pasta dishes! I’m not going to dwell on it, just pick up and do well tomorrow! I think that’s what you should do too 🙂 you’re on the right track and a day or two of cheating won’t put you back to far if you choose to jump back in now!

    • Thanks! I just have to make myself eat some protein tonight and make sure I get back to healthy eating tomorrow. Whatever happens on the scale Friday happens, I suppose. Just stressed.
