Tina and I are both doing the Fit Girl diet, Tina by the book and me slightly modifying it by incorporating more calories. Tina is eating 1450 calories a day; since I’m a guy, I add about 500 extra calories.
Well, I messed up. Willpower weakened this afternoon at work, and my eating plans for the day derailed.
Fortunately, they did not derail so much that they cannot be overcorrected. Rather than eat one 140 calorie bag of chips, I ate three.
Ahem. That’s too many. So, I’m making up for that by eliminating the extra serving of protein I eat at dinner.
Is this the healthiest decision I could have made today? Not by a long shot. But I stuck to my diet. Lose the battle, win the war. That’s what I’m going for here. And in strict calorie terms, I still won this battle.
Breakfast – frozen homemade ham and cheese burrito
Lunch – Almond butter and jelly sandwich, bag of chips
Mid-afternoon – 2 more bags of chips
Dinner – pumpkin lasagna rolls, apple
After-dinner snack – 1 hard-boiled egg, 60 calorie square of dark chocolate
We got this.
Oh, and the best part? I lost seven pounds last week.
November 2, 2015
Change from Last Week: –7.0 pounds
Change from All-Time Highest: –14.0 pounds
I feel like my week could have been better had I not splurged too much on my extra food at dinner. I’m going to do my best to do better this week.
