    Yep, we will both be dancing out of that practice. Actually he won't practice, no point, it is just to drop off the equipment, so even better!

    I actually think the weight is the near total lack of fluid intake yesterday. I am not worried. It is just another example that the "simple" CICO equation is basically BS.

    Thanks Karin. I feel a left over motivation from seeing the Dr. Mosely video, so I am hoping it carries over through the afternoon witching hour.

    Yep, I am mentally prepared and feeling good physically. I think it is going to be a good thing to have 2 ud (well it was really one up and one moderate) before my day off dd. Although on the LCF board they suggested that I always do the up day to its upper limits the day before a dd, I am going to continue to play it by ear.

    Also, I payed the price for Saturday night's desserts, as I was in a mild form of intestinal distress yesterday. At least I think it was the desserts.

    Ah, I just looked out the window, The weather is beautiful and the lawn needs mowed, the perfect confluence of circumstances.

    Crap, honestly I am starting to think I need to do my all down days on work days. I just cannot seem to stay out of the kitchen on my days off.

    At this point, if I stop right now, I have reached my calorie limit. It is 1:45pm.

    What harm would it be if I just went to say 500 calories, 2 days in a row, basically 3 out of 4 days, since I only work 4 days a week? You know just eat dinner when I get home from work. I am not much of one for breakfast, and I don't really care for eating at work as I do it at my desk. So I could easily create a pattern.

    The problem with Monday is that I am almost always low on sleep, and usually have chores I don't particularly want to do (the ole work avoidance issue here).

    we will see how the rest of today goes.

    SW 4/1/13 =274.8
    CW=269.4 up .8 after my second ud
    Sleep=6:04 88% too hot again.
    Calories = dnt
    Net Carbs = dnt
    Fat= dnt
    Protein= dnt
    KR = dnt
    Steps=6670 pitiful

    So yesterday was not very much of a down day, and not a very satisfying up day either. I ended the night by eating lots of celery with some leftover peanut sauce I had made.

    My current thinking is that I will be doing a version of down day on the days that I work. I will just do liquids until I get home, and then I will have a nice, reasonably low carb, reasonably low cal dinner. On my days off, I will do a less extreme version of EMF, low carb still, with the grams of protein and fat about equal. But I will not be too strict about it for all 3 days, allowing myself 1 day that goes higher in the calorie count. I am shooting for a deficit in the weekly average.

    I still plan to work on getting my 10,000 steps a day, and doing Tabata once a week-probably on Sunday.

    I just can't spend my days off thinking about food all day, and getting nothing done.

    I must confess... I think about food a lot.

    My dd was not so good, either. Sounds like a good plan, Chris!

    At work I have plenty of distractions, so food is on my mind much less. And I don't really have access to any unless I bring it, or am willing to go down the street and pay for it-not something I want to get into the habit of. If I start a habit of paying for lunch at one of the local establishments it will end up that I am essentially working to pay for lunch, not gonna happen!

    So I am thinking that along with the 85 calories that are from my half and half in the green tea and coffee and the Cod Liver oil, I will do a half cup of greek yogurt, with a half cup of blueberries and a table spoon of walnuts, when I get home from work and then a nice dinner. Keeping the work days well under 700 total. This is a little less than half of what I need to lose weight -I can usually lose if I keep calories between 1400 and 1800. I can pretty easily keep my calories under 1800 on 2 of the other 3 days and allow one (if necessary) to creep up a bit.

    I am just really going to have to focus on the trend with the scale and not the actual numbers.

    I don't want to abandon the down days because I feel good when they work. Hopefully in the future (as maintenance) my body will naturally choose 2 days a week or so to go low calorie, without me having to force the issue.

    I actually feel very optimistic this morning, I feel like I am just working out the details.

    I love the dessert story. One year for my birthday we went to Pappadeux's and ordered one each of ALL their desserts(7 or 8, I believe). Took turns taking one bite and passing them counter-clockwise. It was fabulous! Better than any dinner. I wouldn't do it now because of the sugar spike, but I'll always remember it.
