Well the best intentions were for me to have typed this up yesterday on the 8th day of the diary but I got a little bit busy and preoccupied with some things. I know poor excuse but I’m trying to catch up today.
I would love to say that I was active but I really wasn’t. The only bit of exercise that I managed to get was a five minute walk around inside the building. My intention was to walk around the inside of the building every hour but typical work I had work to do when the hour was there and soon enough work got me a little bit busier. I would have loved to have stayed behind work and done a mile walk on the machine or 30 minutes on the machine but I was tired.
Right now I’m procrastinating as I try to remember what I had to eat which wasn’t much because I only had about 2 meals. Yeah I know I should eat more than 2 meals but that is all I felt like having for the day so let me get right down to it and start listing what I had for my meals.
BRUNCH: Bacon/Cheese sandwich – 20 grams
DINNER: Pot roast, Simply potatoes mashed potatoes, green beans – 26 grams
SNACK: 9 tortilla chips, guacamole – 23 grams
Well as you can see I was well under the 100 grams of carbs that I set out daily consumption. The only thing is that I wish I wouldn’t have felt so hungry and eating the chips late at night.
BAD: not enough sleep, as a matter of fact my allergies were a little out of sorts because of the champagne that I had the night before. That was most definitely a bad decision for which I’m paying the price weight wise because the weight I had been losing has snuck back on me. So I learned the moral of my story for this week is that I’ve got to be more careful of what I consume on my days off especially since I’m not exercising nearly enough to allow me to go off the wagon of proper eating.
GOOD: Carb count is below 100 grams and I at least did 5 minutes of walking and I managed to get my heart rate up. But I need to strive to do more each and every day. Let’s see how that goes for this week. One good thing also is that I’ve recognized what I did wrong and I can work on focusing on avoiding the bad and maybe I can get back to weight loss.
