Not surprising that the scale punished me this morning. It was worth it. 😛
Lots of the gain are from the massive sodium increase. I’ve been drinking plenty of fluids to flush it out.
None. I chose to take my Saturday off instead of using it as a makeup day for misses earlier in the week. 😛
I took a nice long nap in place of my ride. 😀
Tip Of The Day
Be careful after a cheat. I’ve been doing this long enough now that the 3 pound gain this morning didn’t bother me at all. In fact I laughed a bit about it because I was a bit shocked 3 whole pounds jumped on for a ride.
Don’t let a cheat gain derail your momentum or cause you any stress. Thin people have weight gains, but they moderate after they cheat and lose it within a few days. I know my 3 pounds will be gone within a few days or at worst by next Saturday. No biggie. Just part of my life now. If I gain some, I just cut back a little more to lose it. That is what I need to learn to do anyway for maintenance.
I may be stuck in this weight range for a bit. I’ve got a high calorie breakfast headed my way when I cook for my dad’s father’s day. Then I have my yearly hot dog on July 4th. I’ve also promised an out-of-town friend a visit so I have several meals that will keep me stuck in a range, but that doesn’t bother me much. I know I will be in the 170s soon enough.
You need to learn a bit a patience and you need to keep one cheat from derailing into a pile of cheats. Don’t let one bad scale reading demoralize you to the point you toss in the towel. I’ve done that in the past. Plenty of times. Now I just brush it off and get back to work. This isn’t a race, it is a life long journey so a speed bump now and then aren’t a problem that should mess with your head. Just brush yourself off and get back to work like me. 😛
Happy Dieting, see you tomorrow.
