I posted last Tuesday and then Wednesday was the 4th and I knew I wouldn't be posting so I could sleep in and spend time with my husband who was off work... Then Thursday my husband was off work again and I was all thrown off on what day it even was. It sure felt like a weekend. Friday morning we were out the door early for our daughter's out-of-town gymnastics meet so I intended to post when I got home but we got home at 8:30pm and we were exhausted. I didn't even weigh-in that morning since we had to leave so early and I forgot to weigh-in before I drank my shake.
This weekend my husband and son left for Boy Scout camp. We spent Saturday getting everything packed and running to the store for last minute things. I've been holding down the fort and this has been the first chance I've had to post. Whew - I sure have missed posting but may have to go to a couple of times per week, verses every day, until things settle down a bit over here.
I have not been good at tracking my food in My Fitness Pal since we have been gone so much but I can tell you that I've been doing my best to eat well (with a few mishaps). We have eaten out ALOT!! For example, last Friday, my daughter had to be at her meet 3 hours early (and it was 1 1/2 hours away), so we dropped her off and then went with my parents out to eat breakfast. I had poached eggs and bacon. We have eaten breakfast out every single day (with my parents) since then and I have ordered eggs and bacon at every meal (along with fruit or an english muffin at a few of the meals) so I haven't done too bad. But eating out is...well... eating out. Not sure why, but when we eat out this often, I never lose any weight.
I did have a bad experience that I want to share with you.... my parents took us to dinner the other night at a diner. I had the fried chicken with a baked potato (I know bad... bad.. but potatoes normally don't cause me to gain weight so I do eat them occasionally but keep reading)..... My sister ordered a cinnamon roll to eat BEFORE dinner and she cut me off a piece. I didn't eat it before my meal but then after my meal I did :( Then when we were leaving we took one home for the 5 of us to split (only 5 of us since two of "us" are at Boy Scout Camp this week). Later that evening we ate it, and around 4:00am I woke up feeling very sick. I thought I was going to throw-up. I know this feeling too well.. I use to have it when I binged on sweets and ate way more carbs. I seriously had about 4 bites, BUT, add on the potato and the fried chicken and YIKES... What the heck was going on in my tummy?? (Actually I know what was going on - and it felt awful)!! This was probably the most sugar and carbs that I had eaten since the 4th - The rest of the week was pretty good.
I still plan to post my weight this Friday but as of this morning I am up 1 1/2 lbs to 151. That's calculated from my last Friday weigh-in but in actuality I'm 1 lb lower than where I was last Tuesday. We don't plan on eating out for the rest of this week and I plan to eat my 'normal' foods so my body can feel good again.
