I had a good day Monday and that definitely makes me feel better. I admit that I am doing a kind of “catch-up” week to get back on track. I know if I get on the scale and I gained a bunch last week, that will be discouraging, so I hope to put myself near to where I left off week before last with this high protein, lower calorie week. I seem to be able to do these pretty well when I need to. The only exception was dinner last night. We had a celebration dinner at a fine dining restaurant and, although I didn’t plan to go “hog wild,” I did plan to enjoy it. Glancing over the menu for this restaurant, I thought I would probably get a steak, which I did. There were some shared appetizers, so I had bites of each of those. And I got key lime cheesecake for dessert (a pretty small serving).
The rest of the week (through Friday) I will follow this high protein, low calorie plan. Saturday, I plan to get back on regular WW (although I am counting points this week, just not eating as I typically would).
Honestly, I have not been trying to work out this week. It has been a busy week so far. I am also pretty flared up right now, so I am hoping that will calm down during this week. I was really tired Sunday night from so much activity over the weekend, so I went to bed early Monday night, but I had trouble falling asleep. I finally took a sleep-aid and dropped off a little before Midnight. Last night, I got home after 9:00, and then my date from weekend before last (I'll call him John) called and we talked until after 11:00.
I was thinking yesterday afternoon, for some reason I feel bigger than I did 3 years ago when I had lost down to near this weight, even though I weigh less than that now. I guess since I have been near that weight on and off through the last 3 years, the new wore off. I am so ready to get moving. I have to get right back going on my high protein/lower calorie plan today.
I’m going to get this posted and will probably post again tonight. Happy Wednesday (it’s payday)!
