Okay, liquids and fasting days SUCK. Had THREE of those day last week.
Three of "those" days, I mean.
Three days where I was supposed to be restricting myself to liquids for the first two meals of the day. Ha.
This was my first week attempting to follow the eating plan I was on when I began this blog (see sidebar for details). For the last six weeks, I've been coasting ~ allowing myself to not play by the rules. Being content with maintaining.
So now I know I can easily maintain a weight of 160-165, which, when you consider for many years I've been maintaining 185-190, is pretty good. But I'd prefer knowing I could maintain 145-150. So I decided to start playing by the rules again.
Except playing by the rules when you've allowed a six-week free-for-all is HARD.
On Monday, the first "liquids" day back into the swing of things, I did well until the evening. And then I binged like nobody's business.
On Wednesday, the second "liquids" day of the week, I consumed nothing but liquids...
...until lunch. When I ate out with a wonderful bunch of women from my church.
I should've then stuck to liquids for supper, but because The Bushman was home and I actually had to cook, it didn't happen. But at least I didn't eat anything after supper.
Today was supposed to be a fasting day. Notice how I said, "was supposed to be."
Not only did I eat brunch this morning and supper this evening, but I also just polished off two large tortillas with melted cheddar rolled up and dipped in salsa and sour cream.
Ugh. I hate re-learning the rules.
