Deciding on a weigh in day
Happy Thursday dear friends!!
The scales were down greatly this morning which made waking up to a growling stomach totally worth it. I guess all the weight I gained from drinking that gallon of water on Monday has finally passed. Yesterday was a low calorie day, 1145 calories to be exact. It wasn't intentional, I just got busy late in the evening and by the time I calculated the total count it was well after midnight and I certainly wasn't going to eat anything then. I'll make sure I eat my allotted amount of calories today so my body doesn't fear I'm starving it to death.
I've gone back and forth on my weigh in day all week. My usual weigh in day was Tuesday which helped me to stay on track over the weekend but I'm thinking about changing it to Friday. I always go and have lunch with my family on Sunday. My grandparents cook this gigantic meal and we all get to hang out with each other and catch up on the week. Now my grandparents are the BEST cooks but even when I was extra good on Sunday lunch my weight would go up. Honestly I don't know how much salt (or whatever else) she puts in her food so that's sort of out of my control. I know the concept of having a "free meal" or a "free day" is debatable but it is something I have decided to incorporate in order to keep me from craving foods like mad and then over eating them! Instead of a "free day" I'm going to have two "free meals". One will be lunch or dinner on Saturday and the other will be lunch with my family on Sunday. If I weigh in on Friday this will give me all week to remove any damage that has been done. I guess that means even though it hasn't been a week you guys will be seeing my first official weigh in!!
I hope your Thursday has been wonderful and that the rest of your day is even better!! ((hugs))
