And I am back

This morning I am down the other 2 lbs that I was up on Monday. I knew those weren't real pounds since there was no way I ate 14,000 calories last week. I love the feeling of being able to suck in my stomach. I haven't gotten the energy burst yet, that may take longer to come, but I'll hold out for it.

I did not count my calories all day on Monday, it's just not something I do so I forgot. But I did figure out breakfast, 3 slices of bacon, 1 sausage link, 3 eggs, and veggies. That was right around 600 calories. Lunch worked out to about 700 calories. The only snack I had was some fruit and not that much. Dinner I didn't figure out but it was steak, veggies, and salad. I'm figuring around 650 calories. That totals out to 1950 calories. If you factor in the fruit I ate maybe 2100 cals. tops. I felt really good. I got sleepy in the afternoon but not exhausted and didn't take a nap. Yesterday was very similar and again, sleepy in the afternoon but not exhausted. Two full days without a nap, on break. That's a record for me.

The lesson here? Eating too few calories is almost as bad as eating too many. In some ways it's worse. I get tired, really, really tired. I bloat - big time. And I just am not myself. So, since I'm not really snacking during the day anymore, I need to make sure my meals are big enough. I need to lose that diet mindset, reducing calories, etc. It's hard after it's been part of all your adult life. I need to eat. Eat well. Drink water. Workout. That will do it.

So once again, for just one day I need to be perfect. Eat well. Workout. Drink lots and lots of water. It's been working so far and I'm feeling awesome. Let's do it one more day.
