The girl who eats fruit

Friday, January 18, 2008

I am back home, or I was, I'm at the airport now as I'm flying to NYC for a few meetings today, but I did get the chance to get my morning weigh in today and it was definitely up - 123.8, so almost 3 pounds up. However, the weigh in was at 5:00 am - which is usually not the time I weigh in, I still feel like I may have some alcohal bloat and I also feel like I may have some post flight water retention, so I'm going to take it with a grain of salt..ha ha. BUT tomorrow I weigh in for real and whatever the scale says I log it here and I deal with it. I want to be at 120 or below so starting today I'm back to less than 1400 calories a day. Even yesterday I could have had a tiny dinner and I didn't - I just kept eating that darn dried fruit. I am not sure why but it is completely my weakness. I really need to work on portion control with it.

That sabid I probably did gain a pound or two over the last week and it isn't fair! I eat SO much better than I used to. I eat zero candy, salad for lunch, fruit and whole grains for breakfast, no red meat, mostly fish, and fruit for dessert. Everyone gets there nice chocolate dessert and I maybe have a bite with my fruit. How can I gain weight if I'm eating like this? Oh yeah maybe it is the 350 calories a day in alcohal I've been consuming, but even then I drink either vodka with soda, tequila shots (only one, once) or wine. It is not like I'm drinking beer or pina coladas, or even anything with sugar or juice. Also - I worked out for at least an hour a day while I was gone. I don't get it - how can someone who burns 500 calories a day and eats maybe 2000 calories on the absolute worst day, more often 1500 calories, gain weight. Doesn't it seem wrong, or unfair?

Well, let's see tomorrow what the scale says and I'll deal with it. I can control what I eat better and be more disciplined, and I really would like to be at 120 by the end of the month if possible, so if I need to go back to a 1200 calorie diet that is what I will do. We'll see tomorrow...

    Well maybe it is just alcohol bloat. I know since I cut back on the drinking for my diet, that when I do drink it affects me more the next day than it used to. Check your inches, too, it could be muscles girl! I only lost 3 pounds but I can wear clothes that didn't fit 10 pounds ago. I know its because of muscle gain since I started weight training.

    Just rememeber you're a great inspiration for other Sparkers, that you look great and you should be proud no matter what the scale says tomorrow!
