Starting Weight: 77.6 kg
Ending Weight: 78.2 kg
Result: Gained .6 kg
This was both a cheat day and a break day. However, it was really a fairly moderate cheat day. We brought some food back from the party, but not a huge amount.
I did eat a little too much today, so I expect to gain weight by morning. By the time I finished eating for the day, my weight was around 79.1 kg. This should put me somewhere in the 78 range.
After Christmas Day, I was 78.8 kg. So I will be pretty close to the same this time. I just had way too much beer on New Year’s Eve. That is probably what caused me to gain so much weight. At any rate, I was able to lose weight 5 days in a row after Christmas. I will not be quite as aggressive this time around because there will be no more cheat days for a while. Thus, I will just consistently work out watch my diet and try to get back down to the 75 range slowly but steadily. It might take a week or 10 days. And I am fine with that.
Some days, I will run 90 minutes. Other days, I may run only 60 or 75. However, I don’t plan on doing any 2-hour runs unless I feel it is necessary to make up for a bad day or two.
Today, I had some cereal (the sugary kind), some cake, and some rice, along with yogurt and some meat. The results were to be expected, and I added another .6 kg to the huge weight gain yesterday due to the party. However, today was not nearly as bad when you consider I did not exercise at all. This was both a cheat day and a break day. So keeping that in mind, it was not nearly as bad as yesterday’s disaster. Break days don’t go well for me. But they are far worse if I exercise no diet discipline at all. So while there is a lot of work to do to recover, I don’t feel too bad about this spot.
The worst thing coming up, though, is that I am going on vacation for 3 weeks in January and early February. This means I have to work hard and heavy the first 2 weeks in January to drop the weight back down to about 75.0. Otherwise, I will be in a total pickle by the end of that vacation. But this is nothing to get stressed over. I just have to keep in mind that the first 2 weeks in January can have maybe one break day only.
