I had a bit of a blow out this weekend, including Monday. The weekend probably wasn’t that bad. I had a couple of bags of popcorn. But on Monday I was in Lexington for my daughter’s softball game (we won btw), and afterward we went to a restaurant called “Fatz.”
I had the quarter rack of baby backs and chicken tenders. I thought the tenders were going to be grilled, but they were fried. The rest of the meal was okay; collard greens and broccoli. But the fried chicken tenders did not serve me well the next day.
There were no stomach issues except for the constant hunger pain for nearly the whole day yesterday. I was very much back on my keto diet all day yesterday but I was constantly feeling hunger pains, which caused me to eat a little more than I usually do. I was still within a reasonable amount of calories though.
Today I feel much better and things seem to be back to normal. I gained a pound but that’s no biggy. I’ve been fluctuating all along. On average I have been losing between 2.5 to 3 pounds per week.
I have started strength training. Taking it easy though. I don’t want to hurt myself again.
I have no guilt about what happened. In fact I plan on sometimes breaking the diet but, I will always go back. The “no guilt” thing comes from my faith. I am not viewing any food as wrong. There is just food. I can eat anything I want, but, I choose to eat the things that most benefit me. Eliminating the pressure of staying on a diet frees me to do what I really want to do, which is to eat right (for me).
Anyway, I am currently at 248 lbs. as of this morning. I will probably walk today. I may go to the gym. I’m feeling pretty good. Oh yea, I may have surgery in a couple a few weeks to repair a bulging disc in my neck. I just want to get it over with. Other than that I’m doing great.
