I’ve noticed the pattern over and over again. This is the 3rd Office Competition and it seems my Sunday weight is more often than not, my lowest number. No matter how flawless I am, I tend to gain a little weight as the week goes on.
I consulted Beaker up there and he let me in on the secret. SLEEP. I get plenty of rest on the weekends and I get about 5 to 6 hours a night on week nights. Evidently less sleep means water retention and less weight loss. Just a theory but on circumstantial evidence it look pretty legit.
Daily Loss – UP 2/10 of a pound!
Total Loss 10.7
On Sunday, it looked like I would easily post a better number in the second week than I did in the first. That isn’t going to happen.
The scale better move in the right direction tomorrow or I might be needing a new scale.
That is about what Gail had for lunch. She never cracks. She is a broccoli eating machine. However. Her broccoli may help her but it also helps me. I was not remotely hungry at lunch today because the whole building smelled like 15-year-old wet sneakers stinking in the hot sun thanks to Gail microwaving her broccoli for an hour. 😛
Breakfast – Angus burger with cheese
Lunch – None
Dinner – Tuna salad
Snacks – Chicken, almonds
Calories – 1200
I do want to raise my calories a bit but not until after the Thursday weigh-in.
Free lunch Wednesday is almost upon us. I am not worried. We’ve had all the tempting meals. Tomorrow will probably be hamburger steak or meatballs. I won’t be tempted. Even though I could probably stick with Atkins with the meat, the salt would kill me for the weigh-in Thursday.
Once again I waited until the very last-minute. Heck, almost didn’t ride at all because I took a short nap. Could very easily have slept all night but I didn’t.
Happy Dieting, see you tomorrow
