As my TomTom used to say (in an Aussie accent), "Turn around! Your going the wrong way!"
I only biked just over 4 miles yesterday and did perhaps 20 minutes of Zumba medium intensity. Not much. Food was typical, but I was so busy all day I didn't log it. Still, not likely more than 1200 calories.
I once again got about 4 hours of broken sleep. I went to bed late, got up early, and got up once to use the facilities.
I'll try to keep it to 800 calories and 2 hours of exercise per day during the week to see if I can't get it back down. It seems that's what will be required. Can't do a steak day today. Life is in the way.
Not even close to 800 calories today. Actually, almost exactly double that.
I craved carbs to the point of caving this afternoon. I had two breadsticks left over from Olive Garden and...cookies. Knowing the consequences, I could not resist.
Now, the cookies have been in this house for about a month and I didn't even think about them. The breadsticks I resisted at dinner, and all day yesterday. But today it was like I just couldn't stay away.
I'm so tired I am just forcing myself to stay awake long enough that if I go to bed I won't be up at 3 am. And I've been the walking dead all day. But I made myself go for a walk (3 miles) and do 10 minutes of some simple asanas after to stretch it out and cool down.
While on the walk, I wondered if my lack of sleep contributed at all to my insatiable desire for carbs today. I looked it up when I got back, and guess what? I found Lack of Sleep Causes Excess Carbohydrate Consumption. This does not surprise me. It really was an abnormal WANT. As I said, these foods have been available to me, but essentially invisible...until today.
Now they are invisible because they are gone. Well, in all likelihood they'll show up on my butt tomorrow, so I guess not so invisible.
I struggled with my weight for over 20 years. I tried everything to lose weight. Yes, I did 'eat less, move more' repeatedly, convinced that doing the same thing over and over would someone yield different results. Desperate, having diligently done all the 'right' things and being told by several doctors that there was nothing wrong with me except that I wasn't trying hard enough, in 2009 I tried what seemed crazy: Dr. Simeons Hcg protocol. I lost 85 lb.
