Days 405 And 406 – Gained a Little With Pretty Poor Diet Choices

Day 405

Today was a kind of cheat day, but it was certainly not a full one. Instead, I had some coke. However, at the same time, I did try to go easy on the food. So while coke can be a problem because of its sugar content ( I drink real coke, not the fake stuff), keeping food intake down on the same day can at least somewhat counteract this cheating. Thus, all things considered, I consider this only a small cheat day.

At 4:30 in the afternoon, I had increased to about 78.7 kg, which is 1.5 kg more than the start of 77.2. However, that was after going to the bathroom. So at that point, my daily max increase was about 1.6 kg. For a semi cheat day, this is a pretty good start. But it also means I have to be really careful the rest of the day. I am .5 kg below the danger zone.

I also had some fried chicken, a little bit too much rice (but certainly far less than a cup), and yogurt. Because of the rice, I will abstain from eating any bread today. This is in keeping with my goal of keeping carbohydrates to a minimum.

By the end of this partial cheat day, I had maxed out at about 79.2 kg, which is the exact mark for the 2.0 Danger Zone since the day started at 77.2. I went to bed weighing 79.1 and woke up at 78.4. That spells trouble. I doubt that I can get myself down to 77.2 now. That is 1.2 more kilograms. However, I did wake up at 7 in the morning. So there is hopefully time to at least get close. Of course, I kind of expect to gain a little weight today because it’s a semi-cheat day. However, a real cheat day would have me max out at way over 2.0 kg. So this one was not too bad. I can at least come somewhat close to breaking even.

Well, I have had a change of plans and will have to average today and tomorrow. I am 78.2 at the time of this writing, which is at 9:45 in the morning. So I will eat now, work out later, work out again tomorrow, and then average the two days. This is not normal for my Pentamize tracking, but something came up. So I have no choice but to do this. If I had exercised on Day 405, I most likely would have gained weight. It would have probably been about .2 to .3 kg. But since I did not exercise at all, this will require two workouts over the next 28 hours or so.

Day 406

From 10 in the morning until 6:30 in the evening, I actually did okay on diet. However, I was out playing with my daughter and one of those indoor gym places with the slides and everything. I definitely lost some weight climbing around on that stuff. But I was not able to weigh myself to determine how much. I suspect it was probably about .4 kg or something pretty low like that. And when I checked my weight at 6:30, it was 79.5 kg.

From 6:30 in the evening until about 12 noon tomorrow, I will actually be running 2 sessions to make up for the missed workout for Day 405. During that time, I will only be drinking water and maybe having one small snack. To get back to even for the past 2 days, I will have to lose back down to 77.2 kg, which is a total of 2.3 kg. I don’t know how likely this is, but it’s probably doable if I lose a lot of weight while sleeping tonight.

I ran for about 58 minutes in the evening, and that gave me a pretty nice drop to about 78.6 kg and 78.5 after urinating. Then, I did have a small snack and some coffee. However, I now probably have some decent chance of getting down to 77.2. That’s not to say it’s going to be easy or is likely. But it seems like I have a chance.

Wll, I did come close to making it, finishing at 77.3 kg. That is a weight gain of only .1 kg across the 2 days, for an average weight gain of only .05 kg. And this was in addition to eating ice cream and having even more coke today. As far as my run goes, it was a typical loss of .7 kg, from 78.2 to 77.5. Then, I went to the bathroom and lost an additional .2 kg to finish the day.
