(See my intro post to find out why I’m currently taking this diet challenge.)
It’s time for my Sunday confessional. Because let’s face it – that’s what these posts have become. Fortunately, it’s Superbowl Sunday so no one’s going to be reading this anyways.
Time to ‘Fess Up
I broke my diet on Thursday. Completely. My company sent me to an offsite training workshop for the day — the perfect excuse to carb up. Actually, it wasn’t so bad . . . just a sandwich and salad. And some crackers. Oh, and some potato chips. With just a few glasses of overly sweet lemonade.
Ok, so it was bad. But I’ve done worse. Friday I was good (save for a beer that was handed to me) and I took some pictures since, in my last update, I promised I’d have some “before carb up” and “after carb up” pictures. Obviously, Friday wasn’t the best day to do this since I had carbed up the day prior, but I was going to be busy on Saturday so I said “fuck it” and shot the pics anyway.
And Then . . .
I carbed the hell up yesterday! Half a box of Cheez-its, a giant plate of spaghetti, over half a sleeve a Fig Newtons. And always the drinks.
And a second dessert of course (I am part Hobbit, remember) consisting of an entire 8-pack of Pop‘ems mini chocolate donuts. Yeah, that was good.
And Survey Says
My pics today didn’t seem all that different from Friday’s (no surprise there), or last week’s for that matter. Disappointed again.
But then I read the tape measure. I didn’t quite believe it so I re-measured, but it came out exactly the same. I checked to make sure I wasn’t holding it at a weird angle or squeezing it tight, but all checked out good.
32 5/8 inches.
A half inch drop or so from last week. I was pleasantly surprised, to say the least. Considering I had two binge days this week, I think things moved along quite well. If I can just stick to one clean week for a change I might have some good pics to show soon.
But in the meantime, here’s where I’m at . . .
