The low carb way of life:
Last weekend was the first weekend I didn’t follow the plan completely. Instead of 1 carb moment a day I had 2 on both days. First time I ate some bread too but that was more because it was easy to made, I didn’t enjoy it that much at all.
Monday and Tuesday weren’t good days either. The salads I have at lunch and that I buy at work didn’t look tasty on both days and I didn’t eat much of it. Tuesday I skipped it completely and had a slice of bread and a bowl of soup. Both nights I didn’t feel like eating dinner either and didn’t eat much either. I wasn’t hungry but know I didn’t eat enough.
Wednesday another “bad” day. I had a meeting that lasted all day and included lunch. No salads to choose from, only bread and soup which I had. In the afternoon we went to a different location where we had drinks and appetizers after the meeting. I had 3 glasses of wine and appetizers. When I came home around 6 pm I wasn’t hungry anymore and skipped dinner.
By Thursday I was annoyed. I always buy a salad at work. But there are 2 lunch shifts and I’m always in the 2nd one. When I came to the salad bar: everything was out. I had to eat bread again. Maybe I should bring my own salads but it’s more work to prepare them and the salads at work (when available) aren’t expensive. I’m going to think of alternatives to eat instead of bread when salads aren’t available.
Start weight on October 15th: 81 kg (178.5 lbs).
Weight on November 19th: 78.6 kg (173.3 lbs).
Total loss: 2.4 kg (5.3 lbs).
Recap: No weight loss this week because I didn’t stick to the plan the past week. I’m going to follow the plan again, starting today at least till Christmas. The first 4 weeks went great and I felt much better those weeks than I did last week. It’s working as long as I stick to it.
- Yesterday my Mom was supposed to go to the hospital to get results from tests that were taken. Since the appointment was in the middle of the day I took the day off from work to go with her. But about 15 minutes before I was supposed to leave, she called and said the cancelled the appointment because the doctor was sick. I took a day off for nothing but on the other hand I didn’t care too much about it and enjoyed the day.
- Tomorrow we’re having family over to celebrate R.’s birthday. His actual birthday is Tuesday but on the day itself we always go out for dinner together which we will do next Tuesday too.
