Like a typical stock chart...
...nothing goes in a straight line.
For this week's weigh-in I had my first week of a weight increase rather than a decrease. This didn't surprise me as my diet was off track and my weekly activity was down. I didn't eat badly but I took in more calories than I was burning. With that in mind I am making sure to reset my meal plans and get back to the times I am eating them. Having my last meal between 3 and 6 PM has been important to my plan. For the past year I was eating far too many calories, and bad ones at that, after dark and up until midnight. As I lay in bed at night feeling a little bit hungry I simply tell myself that is the sound of fat leaving my body.
HOWEVER... with this little set back I decided to slip in an opportunity to have a cheat day. When I have a good weigh-in I am less inclined to have a cheat day because I feel that if I do I am taking a backwards step from my progress. This week, since I had a tiny setback anyway, I might as well do a little more damage before I reset the plan. So, with that in mind, I did what I haven't done in two months.
