I had counted on having three fasting days, like my plan dictates ~ Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Monday went according to plan, but Wednesday began with a friend and a long overdue BREAKFAST date. It was the only day that suited, and since what used to be a monthly thing hadn't happened since last May, we decided now was the time. So my eating plan for the week was a little messed up.
I'd thought I'd maybe have my fasting day on Thursday then and just have two, but my seasonal tax-time job has begun and that was my first day of work. Like I mentioned not that long ago here, I have a really hard time fasting on work days, so I didn't bother. I counted on my usual Friday fast, but that didn't end up happening either...
It would have been fine ~ I was at home alone basically all day ~ but working with food for my daughter's birthday party all day just made not eating impossible. I made it through breakfast and the morning munchies, but caved slightly after noon, at which point I indulged in some leftovers from the fridge and FOUR eggnog cookies. (Believe it or not, we still had some leftovers from Christmas!)
I tend to go a little overboard when I cave. It would have been far smarter to realize I wouldn't be able to work with food all day without eating and just planned for a half day. Oh well. I guess I'll know better for next time!
So there you go. Wednesday was a normal day instead of a fasting day, Thursday was a half-to-normal day like it should have been, but then Friday was also a half-to-normal day instead of a fasting day. Saturday was "normal" like it's supposed to be, but Sunday was a little closer to "normal" than "half" and my first Monday at work was definitely NOT a fasting day again...
It's really no wonder there was again no movement on the scale. I am a little surprised there wasn't at least a couple of ounces since feeling hunger pangs is something I've experienced on a daily basis for the last two weeks and it's something I generally don't when I'm eating the way I feel like eating. So I'm not sure why I'm hanging on to my beginning weight, but I'm surprisingly unphased by the lack of change. I feel better in my clothing and about how I'm eating. The weight will come off sooner or later. Not anywhere close enough weight- or time-wise to reach that little month-end goal I'd kinda set for myself, but I'm still making forward progress even though the scale hasn't caught on.
