Well, it is Monday. I don't know why I should expect different at this point. I didn't sleep for beans last night...again. What is it about Sunday nights and not being able to sleep?
I have a jam packed morning full of appointments, but I should be done by noon. Then I'm doing to come home and take a damn nap! If I can get my head on straight after that, treadmill. I'm going to attempt another week like last week to see what happens.
Why, I don't know. It would appear that I am up a lb. or so. Even with those two days of being up an undetermined amount, I'm at best at a zero loss for the week. But really, it looks to me like a gain.
I do not understand it. Between Tuesday and Sunday I walked or rode 38 miles, not including Saturday because I was on my feet all day and was just too exhausted to to anything by the end of that day.
My easter 'splurges' were 1 sugar-free, low-carb mock Cadbury each day, a 1x1 inch piece of sugar-free, low-carb coconut cream pie Sat. and a 1x2 in piece of same on Sunday. Otherwise, my meals were reasonable portions of low carb goodness. Last night, 1 cup of 44 clove garlic soup with a small salad for dinner. I didn't really eat 'breakfast' or 'lunch' per say...I had two piece of string cheese, a beef stick and 1/2 an apple before our ride and hike, 1 serving of cashews immediately after, and a scoop of peanut butter when I got home.
I'd love to think I'm building some muscle and my clothes are going to fit smaller today. If that is the case, I'd like to know when the muscle I've built is boing to help me burn more fat so I see the numbers come down! This is really starting to piss me off.
Looking ahead, August through October are going to be busy travel times with a good amount of eating out and less control over how much I can exercise. Starting out from where I am now would be a disaster. Moving into the holidays from that point? OMG!
If I don't see some downward progression by Memorial Day, I'm going to have to start protocol again. I'm not keen on doing that. I know I may expect only 10-12 lb. in 6 weeks starting this close to my goal weight, but even a couple of lb. per week is progress! Holy Hell, maybe I should just include my dinner out for my birthday in my loading days, start protocol in two weeks, and be done with it by the end of May!
While my weight may be higher than I would prefer, and that bumps my BMI, I weighed on my work scale anyway. Come to find out my percentage of body fat is PERFCT at 26.0! I'm a little happier now. And I have it in me to go get on the treadmill instead of taking a nap!
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.
