Paul, I wish I was like you but I find only one ‘bad’ day can lead to gains. Maybe this is another thing that sucks about being a chick? We sure love to hang onto those fat cells (in order to survive a famine I guess, whereas the males are expendable? :).
Anyway I have no doubt a gain as I had a kids party food blow out of major poportions on Saturday – about 9 pts on sausage rolls plus too many chips. That night I had dinner at Donna’s place, so it wasn’t at the usual toddler friendly 6pm but at the more sophisticated time of 9:30pm…. luckily her small brush with ww has meant the food wasn’t as bad as it used to be in terms of points (alas the woman is the best cook I know and her food is delicous. It was good to see that being lower in fat she is still managing to make it taste fabulous). But – as I have worked out, eating late is really bad for me – it has happened four times this week due to a number of circumstances (mostly around a pressing deadline).
I went into full on damage control on Sunday but a late dinner (pasta, carbs after 8pm not good) due to a wacky schedule probably only made matters worse I suspect.
I am getting really frustrated as it isn’t one major thing but a series of small obstacles that together make a bad picture. Combined with the no time for exercise (and this isn’t just laziness I promise, I have a big presentation at the end of the month for my masters submission and I am shitting myself over it).
I really actually don’t want to go tonight because i fear the scales. Does anyone have a ‘no record’ card? I don’t think I can take another gain tonight but I know that when I feel like this it is the time that you really *have* to go…..
