It's Wednesday, which means it's official weigh-in day. You all know I'm scale obsessed so I weigh in more than once a week, but Wednesday's number is the one I count.
Last week I was really excited because I finally broke 150 after many, many months.
This week? Not so excited. I haven't seen the 140's since then. I thought I was eating very well all week. I was being "good". I didn't drink on the holiday and last night I cut a workout a little short so I could rush home and eat something paleo before my daughter's track banquet which was catering pizza and breadsticks. (This after having a meltdown on FB about how much I hate eating like this and not wanting to blow a month's worth of work for one stupid piece of pizza.)
I was "rewarded" with a 1.4 pound gain.
This got me thinking about what I've been eating. Just because a food is paleo or gluten free doesn't mean it's calorie free. I've tried to find some substitutes to make me a little happier with this diet but the fact is, I'm still eating too many calories.
I wanted to eat my burger on Memorial Day on a bun. Those gluten free buns are 170 calories and what sucks is they don't taste that good. I should have saved the 170 calories and $5 for 4 buns and just eaten my burger with a knife and fork.
I have a sweet tooth and have wanted dessert. Avocado chocolate pudding with strawberries and coconut whipped cream contains "healthy fats" but it's still fattening. Frozen banana "ice cream" contains a shit ton of calories, even though it's essentially all fruit.
I need to cool it with the treats and replacement carbs I guess. I know not all calories are created equal but it appears 1500 calories is still too many.
