Overall yesterday was a very bad day for me calorie-wise. I haven't entered it in on my counting app but I know that I went above the 2,200 mark and may have even gone to the 3,200 "maintain weight" mark. I had to pick myself up today because accidents happen. You gotta just put it behind you and move on. I was under the impression that we were going to have tacos for dinner so after work I had a hamburger from In N Out burger along with fries. My mistake wasn't with that late lunch, but with the 32 ounce Caguama beer I had later that evening. I didn't take into consideration how long ago I had eaten. That one beer led to a couple of shots of rum, which led to a margarita, which led me to being quite drunk. Drunk me doesn't make very good decisions. I tried three times to sing karaoke. Only the final attempt was successful...Sadly Taco Tuesday was over early due to the high demand of the yummy food and low supplies to make them. So we decide to split a sampler tray.
My progress can be measured with a scale or measuring tape but it's the small victories like this that make the whole thing worth while. Some days I look in the mirror and get defeated. Like all the weight I've lost so far is just an illusion. I feel as if it's just water weight that will all of a sudden appear one morning. The little things like sitting at a booth in a restaurant without feeling smooshed against the table and buttoning up my shirt on a whim that reassure me that I'm making progress. I appreciate all the well wishes and compliments that I've gotten so far, they help me more than any of you can know, but sometimes it's the things that I discover on my own that have the biggest effect on me.
This is all for now. I am working on the adventures I had in the Grand Canyon. It was an incredible experience to say the least! Hopefully I'll have it put together tomorrow or Friday for you! Until the next episode!
