So I've been doing really well the past couple weeks.... broke out of the 170's & weighed in at 168 on Sunday.
So Monday, with all it's Memorial Day glory, we had a small gathering of friends for a fun day of pool'n
yeah, I said it! "GRILL'N"
On special occasions, I stick to my diet as much as possible, but allow for goodies and I don't beat myself up over it or worry about it. But oh my stars!
We had cheeseburgers made with lean ground beef and we used Nature's Own Multi Grain Sandwich Rounds instead of regular burger buns...
they were YUMMY and fit in nicely with the caloric values!!! I consumed three Corona Light beers (with lime! no scurvy here!!!! LOL) and that was pretty much planned. We also had some chips & dip for guests - I "dipped" into the BBQ Fritos twice (not bad!!) and also had some spinach dip with regular dipping chips
... and yeah, ok, I had TWO and A HALF brownies with walnuts! So all in all, I really did pretty good and was happy with my intake of foodage.
I decided to weigh myself after the party was over. It was about 11:00 last night... and I weighed in a 173!!! FIVE POUNDS! after one day of partying... just... wow.
Of course I realize that with the beer and those chips, etc. it was a LOT of sodium to have in such a short period of time. I know that's all water weight, after all, there is NO WAY I ate 17,500 calories yesterday. And this morning, I was back down to 170, so there's 3 pounds of water weight gone right there.
But I find it interesting and amazing (and yeah, a little off-putting!!) that the body can make such quick changes like it does. And I'm sure that by tomorrow or Thursday, I'll be back at my happy 168 and steadily dropping weight. (We have vacation day today & are grilling again with our favorite freighbors! Today is HOT DOG day! Ohmygooooddddnesssssss....)
I just thought it might help some people to read this, so they can know how their body is also "quick to change" when you eat off-plan, and quick to "bounce-back" when you get back on-plan.
I hope everyone had a happy Memorial Day weekend!!
