Alright ladies, I know that some of you have been waiting for my review of my first cheat day and my up-to-date weigh-in, so here it is. This is probably going to be really long, sorry!!! Get the
I want to first start off by saying that I couldn't follow the proper weigh-in days as I go to the cottage on the weekends and we have no scale there. So I started the diet on the Sunday, and since it was a long weekend, didn't weigh myself until the Tuesday morning (my initial weigh-in). The next week I waited until the Monday morning (again I was at the cottage for the weekend), which I had lost 5.5l bs my first week. Again, at the cottage and lost 2.6 lbs when I weighed myself on the Monday morning. That was last Monday which would mean that because it was my first cheat day on Saturday, I would have to weigh myself on Sat morning. Well, we were outta town and I had to do it Friday morning. So from Mon morning to Fri morning (in my 3rd week), I didn't lose a thing. Not surprising seeing as it was only 4 days later. So, to follow my old schedule of Mon morning weigh-ins, I did it this morning which resulted in a 1.2 lbs gain (obviously because of my CRAZY cheat day on Sat, which I will get to in a few mins! lol). In the end, I did not record this gain because I need to get into the routine of doing it the morning of cheat day (or the day before for me because of the cottage thing). So in the end, this week's weight loss/gain will be final on Fri morning. I dunno how things got so messed up, but they did! So anyone who is wondering how I'm doing, well, we'll see on Friday! lol I hope that wasn't too confusing for anyone!!
Now onto my cheat day. As you know, alot of you have seen how excited I've been waiting and planning for my first cheat day. We were at my grandfather's for the weekend. Here's how my day went. I woke up at my usual time, ate some cookies (yes I know, bad before breakfast), then we went to Timmy's for a bagel with cc and a 1/2 coffee, 1/2 hot chocolate (which I only drank 1/2 off - I wish it was the hot chocolate 1/2! lol). So the day progresses and my grandfather asks me to make some cookies for him, which I did, and ate alot before lunch. Lunch comes around and I didn't really eat anything that bad, just a bun with meat/cheese/lettuce. After lunch comes the DQ. I had been craving a Blizzard forever! So we head to the DQ, get stuff for all of us and I start eating my Blizzard. Unfortunately, I decided to get a different kind that I normally do and I was soooooooooo disapointed.
I eat it anyway, cause well it's still DQ. Dinner comes around and we have steak, baked potatoes and salad. To finish that off, out comes the pie and ice cream!! (yes I know, more ice cream!). Oh I wanted to mention that after the DQ, my belly doesn't feel too good! But, I keep on eating, cause it's my cheat day and I want to eat whatever I can! Oh I also forgot to mention that my FI bought us some little chocolates that he gave me the morning of our cheat day as a "Happy Cheat Day" gift, which was so cute and of course, I ate those throughout the day! It's after dinner now, and I had bought chips and dip for a snack to have with my Pepsi. I didn't even eat the chips because I couldn't eat anything else. I didn't even finish my whole Pepsi because I thought that my teeth were falling off when I drank it! LESSONS LEARNED FOR CHEAT DAY
- make sure when you pick something, make it good, make it what you really want, what you normally eat
- don't pig out all day with junk, you'll just make yourself sick
- if you feel sick, then stop eating the crap foods (not like me - DUH!!)
- Pepsi rots your teeth off (still love it though!! )
- maybe get a smaller version of what you would normally eat. For example, I usually get a medium Blizzard, well it felt like WAY too much, so I should have gotten a small
I think that's about it. I did want to mention that I did go for a walk that day and the day after, to try and get rid of some of those bad calories! lol
Also, it was a little difficult the next day going from eating whatever you want to something more strict. Although I have to say that it was probably because we were at my grandfather's and the junk food was still around.
Anyway, that's about all I have to say about that. I'm really hoping to lose more weight. I'm a little afraid that it'll take me all week to lose what I gained, then boom, again, another cheat day! The FI and I decided that we would only eat 1 or 2 things we're craving on cheat day. Not like the day we just had. Maybe order your fav pizza for dinner but eat normal meals for the rest of the day. I dunno, I think I'm going to try that this cheat day.
Good luck ladies and I hope that some of you can learn from my experiences!!
