I don't know why I do this. Really, I have no idea how keep from doing this ever again. I am moving along on a Paleo/low carb cruising altitude, feeling REALLY DARN GOOD. And then one little eating glitch and it all falls to pieces!
Went to my aunt and uncles on Saturday afternoon. It was my uncle's name day (big deal for the Greek, bigger than a birthday), so my aunt made some Greek pastries (stuff I NEVER make any more and rarely eat) and I was handed a plate with a small portion of them. I factored in for this, decided to eat what I was given, and really intended on being done with grains/sugar the moment I left their house. My son was hungry, but my kitchen was all clean and I didn't feel like cooking. I really thought my aunt was going to have other food to eat. Poor planning!
We went to A&W for dinner. I had a Coney Dog. And fries. And a root beer. It was like an out-of-body experience. I watched myself order and eat it all.
Sunday, I weighed myself and noted that I had gained 2 lbs. It was to be expected. So, I went right back to my Paleo/low-carb food plan. Ate my planned share of calories and was done eating around 4:30 p.m. The boys came home with friends at around 9 p.m. They were hungry. They ordered pizza around 10:30. The boys and their friends kept me up till 1 a.m. I got hungry again during that time...yes I ate pizza. LOTS of it!
Weighed in this morning. Up 4 lbs. since yesterday! Holy crap!
No need for self-flagellation. I know what I did and I'm kicking myself! I'm about12 hours into my turn at intermittent fasting. Drinking lots of water with some lemon. I know it's mostly water retention. I've already done some Pilates, weight training and cardio today. Hoping to catch up on sleep with a nap this afternoon.
Just needed to get this out of my head. Putting it out there so I can move on! Thanks for listening!
