There was no meeting in Rincon due to the Memorial Day holiday, so I went up to Springfield (6 miles from here) to see how I'd done for the week.
I debated skipping, but I decided this early in the process I wanted to face the music. Yeah, and the suspense would kill me otherwise. I didn't attend the meeting; you could call this a drive-by weigh-in. Or a "weigh-by."
Anyway, consistency is the name of the game. I
I did this after work, just going through Rincon on the way out there, so I didn't get to do a pre-weigh on the bathroom scale.
What did I do differently? Eating-wise, not much. I had about as much water as the previous week, but a lot more activity. More than usual (see below).
But drinking involved a change of near-Biblical proportion; only two times did I consume any CO2-based beverages. Last Friday, if you remember, I broke down and had most of a can of Squirt. And yesterday, during our "Family Fun Day" with Tiger (including bowling and mini-golf, and racking up 12 - count' em - 12 "Chicken Fat" activity points in the process), we ate supper at Ci Ci's, where I ate those points and then some. 7 slices of pepperoni pizza (nearly a whole medium) and two servings of Barq's Root Beer. I counted and logged 40 points for that gluttonous exercise.
In the end I dipped 17 points into my weekly 35. And still dropped another deuce.
I'll take that without complaint.
Goals for this week: More water. Water, water, water. A little more "good for me" stuff. Maybe not just two sodas, but I'll aim to have no more than four. Sound reasonable?
Ciao for niao.
