A relatively bad couple of days. Yesterday was an official “day off”. I needed to rest my body a bit from the workouts and dancing I’ve been up to lately. And last night we met up Philly for a little wine party. I definitely over indulged in the cheese and crackers and free wine that was there. A 3000Cal night easy.

Today I did go to the gym for a nice 1-1.5 hour workout, but had a textbook binge moment tonight. I’ve been watching poker and snacking for the past couple hours. A banana muffin and extra small bowl of the casserole we had for dinner adds an additional 600Cal or so for the day.

Overall not too much damage done, but I’m not trying to “maintain” here. We need to be losing. I want to break through 220 hard next week… no this weekend. Yeah!

Those “days off” are difficult, I experienced the same yesterday. Especially when days off collide with family, friends, dinner and drinks. Just don’t give up. Yesterday was yesterday and today is a new day! (whoaaaa that sounded way too cheesy)

Thanks for the support, Anne. Traveling and visiting family makes it very hard to stay on track.

Today I weighed in at 219; that’s a new low. I think, and I said this earlier, I’ve been underestimating the amount of exercise I’m doing and the effect it is having on my weight. So, even though I’ve been going over my 2000Cal limit. Since that’s based on an “average activity level” rather than working out 1-2 hours a day, I’m still losing weight.

Also I think the exercise is making me hungrier than usual. I mean last night I couldn’t stop thinking about food. I binged pretty much just to get the voice out of my head, you know. Perhaps 2500Cal is a better goal as long as I can keep up the workout routine, but I think that could be a bit of a slippery slope.

The one thing I don’t want to do is say, “I can eat this now because I’ll work it off tomorrow.” Because I might not work it off tomorrow. On the other hand, I don’t want to say, “I can eat this now because I worked out so much today.” and wipe out the good effects of the workout.

I know when I’m being bad. And I have my moving average chart to warn me when I’m starting to gain weight again. So I’ll keep striving at it and hope things continue to go as smoothly as they have been.
