Received very upsetting news yesterday afternoon. It was my Down Day, but in the evening, when I was feeling some mild hunger, and being very stressed-antsy because of the news, I went ahead and had food. Not too bad in terms of a cheat. Seaweed salad, a slice of cheese cake, and two slices of cheese. The only thing unhealthy was the cheesecake, and calorie-wise, that was the only thing that took me over my Down Day calories. Except that I didn't plan it, it could be a Medium Day.
The eating was not ideal, but I am not unhappy with it. These things happen, and considering what I MIGHT have ate (the world!), it doesn't seem too bad.
Back to a regular Up Day today. I will try to minimize from sugar, so I don't set anything off, but I will be eating freely.
After seeing that spiralled zucchini, my gadget lust is at a peak! Down, girl, down.
Sadly, the news is major and permanent. Thanks for your good wishes. I am over the shock, and am concentrating on other things. The useful stuff that I can do to help, will be sporadic, and I do no good dwelling on it. Last night was enough. I am lucky that it is not right in my face, like my friend. I will do my best and go forward.
This morning I am prepping my food for my retreat. Having a written plan will help, I think. Also having some 'approved' treats, so I don't run amok in the chocolates and pie.
Sorry to hear about the bad news, Sabine. Nobody is going to fault you for finding some comfort in cheesecake, especially the womenfolk here.
I really want a vegetable spiralizer now. On the wedding registry it goes!
Dropped another pound for a total of 21 down. Ate reasonably the last UD and DD. Today is another UD and I think I may be going to a happy hour with friends tonight. Going to probably skip breakfast (normal at this point) and eat a light lunch. Going to an old teacher & mentor's retirement party this Saturday though and it's at a craft brewery, so I am looking at consecutive UDs again and a lot of wheat. I really need to try some non-wheat beer (that isn't Bud Light, gross).
diene - Oh duh. Where is my brain at today. Wednesdays.
Well, there will be plenty of wheat beer around. Since the party is at the Widmer Brothers Brewery, known of course for their hefeweizen.
Today is my third DD for the week. I swear these DDs are saving my butt. I have had 3 binge days this month and yet I feel as if I am still losing due to ADF. It also helps that I am eating clean w30...when I am not binging.
I will not weigh and measure until July 1st so no telling what is actually happening. I feel thinner, am less obsessed with numbers and am not constantly worried about changing my eating plan.
I'm glad the Down Days are giving you a sense of helping your body, Pebbles.
I am doing well-ish. Had a few days of bad choices due to family visiting from out of town. Yesterday was a DD and I just ended up doing a full fast. It got to be about 6:00 and I had not eaten yet (coffee with almond milk was it..) and decided to see how far I could take it. Still have yet to have breakfast this morning but I am not much of a early eater anyway. Does anyone do full fasts on their dd?
