The holidays are coming. Thanksgiving is just around the corner. My wife and I decided we’re not going to exactly cheat on the day, but we aren’t going to worry either. We want to eat and really enjoy the food. It’s all we have, honestly. We’re not drinkers, we’re not smokers any more, and we don’t gamble or spend excessively. We’ve been tightly disciplined for most of the year, so we can afford to go a little heavy on the protein one day.
No worrying about the protein count for me on the holidays. I may still have my loaf of sourdough with grapes, cheese and wine on my birthday, but for Christmas and Thanksgiving it will likely just be not monitoring my protein intake too much. I will pay for it, but it will be worth it.
For today, my weight held from yesterday. I don’t know why, because my numbers were ideal. Or, what used to be ideal, at least. For today, though, I weigh the same as yesterday and that’s better than gaining, but not the point of doing this.
Sometimes I wonder why I still am when it feels like it’s not working. Then I stop and realize I’ve dropped about 40lbs since February and suddenly, I know why again.
Hope I can keep it in sight.
