This is a first

Today I've got good news and bad news... which one first?

Bad news
Yesterday I took off of work to have a nice relaxing day of shopping with Anthony.  Well I didn't just take off to go shopping, that's just what we ended up doing.  I was in desperate need of new bras cause as you ladies know, the only bad thing about losing weight is that you lose weight everywhere.

So anyway, with an awesome weigh-in under my belt from earlier that morning, I consciously decided to treat myself today.  I started out with a breakfast sandwich made out of sweet bread, ham, bacon, cheese, egg and mayo.... so goooooooddddddddd but so baaaaaaddddddd!!  We stopped at Starbucks and I didn't order anything but then lunch time came around.  We ate at a local Japanese restaurant where we know the workers.

Knowing the workers = lots of free food

Started out with tempura corned beef hash, fried chicken, and my main course was a nabeyaki udon.  It's basically an udon dish with lots of stuff in side like water cress, egg, chicken, shrimp, cabbage, etc.  Dessert was an orange dreamsicle shake made from 7-up, orange sherbert and vanilla ice cream.  Again so goooooooddddddddd but so baaaaaaddddddd. 

Dinner ended up being Chinese food.  Fried cake noodle with crispy chicken.  One.entire.plate.for.myself.and.one.entire.plate.for.Anthony.  Dessert: two servings of ice cream.  MAN that's a lot of food!  This is the first time since I can remember that I felt like throwing up after.

This morning the scale hates me and says 132... a gain of 4 lbs overnight people!  And as I type this, I'm eating these, but that'll be it for today!

Good news
Besides feeling like crap today and having cravings up the ying yang for sugar and salt, this is the first time I'm not regretting it.  Yeah, I went a little (just a little) overboard but at the time I knew exactly what I was doing.  I already told myself I wasn't going to kick myself in the ass for it so it is what it is.

Will get in a longer session of exercise today and drink LOTS of water to combat the sodium intake.  Let's see what happens next week.

And as far as the diet I'm on, just getting back on track and staying there will defenitely bring the weight back down but it probably stalled me a week or so.

Sure...I had at least a couple days like that when the in-laws visited...talk about self-medication.

But, I too was right back on track...the scale issue was fleeting.

Try to think back on what you ate...did you really eat 14,000 (4 pounds worth) EXTRA calories over and above your daily calorie allowance to maintain your weight (or even to lose weight)? Probably not!

After reading what you ate, all I could think of was "that's a lot of salt". I'll bet 3 of the 4 pounds will be off in 2 days, and the other pound in another day or two after that.

You are human...a splurge here and there is okay as long as you get right on track again.

Keep your eye on the prize, baby!

At first I wasn't too sure if I should continue reading because I always get uncomfortable with reading about "women" stuff (ref: bra stuff). Then I got to the food and thought to myself... hey, I can relate!

The cool thing is that you can get back on track tomorrow. Btw, the food sounded yummy!

Your body will respond greatly if you get STRAIGHT BACK on the wagon. I've read lots of different places that one day off plan, and right back on, your body will be anxious to get rid of all those extra calories, which kicks on your metabolism into high gear... that's the theory anyway, and I'd say it's worth believing! Get back to work honey!

Glad you got to enjoy it though. There's nothing worse than the guilt after a binge, but enjoyment is always worth it (well, as long as it's not every day, right?)

Love ya Annie :) Go kick some butt!!!

Hey You! Thought I saw you at the gym today and was so excited, before I realised that it couldn't possibly be you. Wouldn't that be fun though!!!

Hope you're having a good day.
