As with the past several days, I continued to struggle with my diet today. I have tried to mix things up a little, but nothing is working as of yet.
Today, I started with some strawberry smoothies and had some watermelon. This decreased my overall meat intake by quite a bit, but my yogurt consumption (about .5 kg) was the same. And I did have a small amount of bread and some noodles. There wasn’t much of a difference in the end result. I went to bed at about 81.3 and woke up at 80.4 kg at 6 in the morning.
Today, I am back to running at 7:30 in the morning. So I have about 1.5 hours to go to the bathroom again and naturally lose a little weight. It will probably be about 80.2, which is roughly the same as my pre-workout weight the last few days.
Despite difficulties with diet and a need to keep modifying a little, I have lost .1 kg each of the last 3 days. So while the road has been difficult, the results are there. I am still certainly on the path to success in this post-vacation recovery period.
It has now been a week since coming off of vacation, and I have dropped from the first morning’s weigh-in of 81.0 kg to yesterday’s final mark of 78.7 kg. That is a large drop of 2.3 kg overall. However, most of that (1.7 kg) was in the first 2 days.
It looks like my streak is over. I went out and ran for 90 minutes at a slow pace, as it was all my body and mind could handle. My finishing heart rate was only about 112, but that was still a decent workout and resulted in a weight loss of 1.0 kg. I finished at 79.3 kg from a start of 80.3. The problem is that 79.3 is .6 kg over the starting weight of 78.7.
Since I finished the run at 9 in the morning and the weigh-in is at about 10 to 10:30, I am basically screwed here. Heck, I don’t even need to go to the bathroom. So I may finish .6 kg up but could possibly lose a little more naturally.
A day where the weight just doesn’t fall off as expected was bound to eventually happen. So my 6-day streak of weight loss is definitely over now. In fact, I finished at 79.2, which is a large weight gain of .5 kg.
There isn’t really any good reason to do anything different. Like I say, a day like this was inevitable sooner or later. So I have to look at the big picture, not this one bad day. And the big picture is still showing a very good recovery after vacation.
