Somehow I got lucky today, and am down .4 from where I was last weighin (Wednesday). I say luck was involved because I did not have a very good food weekend. While its kind of sad to think I would probably be down a lot if I hadnt eaten some of the things I did, at least I am still down.
Friday I worked late (which is why I didnt weighin), and ended up meeting some friends at Hooters where I ate dinner. While I had a salad (because everything else there is fried), I did have 4 beers which is something I RARELY do. Im not a beer drinker, and definitely do not drink 4 beers at a time. So that right there was a mistake. But I can accept that I was using that alcohol as an escape. After a shitty day, week, and several weeks, it felt nice to go out and drink without thinking about all the things that I have to on a daily basis.
Saturday was fine with my eating, but yesterday my dad came into town and we went out to breakfast. I ate on plan, having an egg white omelet and some coffee, but later on we went out to eat and I had a burger. I rarely eat red meat and all my readers know that it sticks around for a while, but I had such a craving for a burger. I enjoyed it so I guess thats all that matters. We did go to Navy Pier and walk around, and it was so incredibly windy and we walked against the wind that I definitely got a workout just from that. I had a nice time with my dad so I can just chalk this up to a bad weekend in terms of food, but a fun and relaxing weekend for the rest of things.
The good thing about me is that I dont find it hard to get back on track with my healthy habits after I have eaten out a lot. I dont really like eating processed food because of how it makes me feel, so it always feels wonderful to eat healthy and whole. Hopefully I will like what I see on the scale on Wednesday.
