I had a bad couple of days. Seriously... BAD. My daughters had First Communion and my son had a birthday... that all added up to a lot of cake in the house.
Funny thing is... on day one, I didn't do terribly. I had one small slice of the cake. By day two, just knowing that cake was in my house was reason enough for me to eat it... and eat it I did... I didn't crave it, after a few bites I even felt sick... but I kept eating it.
By end of day three... I was SICK. I kid you not... hanging out in the bathroom sick.
I felt so crummy that I also skipped two days at the gym, which added to my feeling worse. I made bad choices (having a bagel thin for breakfast instead of eggs and healthy fat), that left me feeling hungry and that led to mindless eating.
I threw the cakes out... if they aren't here, I can't eat them. Too bad it took me three days of feeling like crap to do that!
I'm switching off calorie and fat counting for two weeks. Instead I am eating whole (clean, natural) foods, limited grains, and lots of protein. Pre morning workout, I had a cup of yogurt with berries. For breakfast today I enjoyed, 1 egg cooked omelet style + 1 cup of cooked gf oats w/ sliced strawberries, 1 TBS of palm sugar and 2 Tbs of whole milk. Lunch will be a grilled chicken breast, zucchini, mushrooms, and salad. Afternoon snack will be 2 hardboiled egg whites + a sliced apple and dinner will be a repeat of lunch.
The combination of high quality proteins with limited grains should help fuel my body and help ensure I am burning fat and not muscle at the gym.
Oh, yeah... the gym. I joined Curves. This week I only made it there 4x's. My goal is 6x's/week, since I made myself sick this week, I lost 2 workouts. So far, I am liking it... the circuit makes sense in my world. I'm still walking a lot and maintaining all my normal activities, so this should help burn faster and tone up as the weight is coming off.
I didn't gain any weight during my 3 day binge... I held steady at 15lbs lost.
