The "bad" was that the one and half day planned food fest that lopped into a full on 2 day deal. Ask me if I felt bad about it? I don't. It's been over a year since we've done that and given most of us agree I need to up my calories, I took care of that right quick! Between the planned burger lunch we had with my family Sunday and then getting the pizza I had to pass on that I really wanted the night before, I decided I "deserved" it. It wasn't that kind of thing though, it was truly that I looked at what I had planned for dinner and saw that I could still get the pizza and be within the calorie range I was going to be in anyway. Yeah the sodium was going to be slightly higher but it was no biggie. Oh...and there were cupcake pops. We won't speak about those yet. That post comes later in the week!
But we did a strength workout that I felt with major intensity the next day in my shoulders and back and then Labor Day came and we busted out a Powerstrike 5 workout and cut up all of our veggies and fruit for the week. All was back to normal and I'm glad for it. So I did a 2 high cal days in a row...yeah, so what. At least I got right back to it and will look to make the week average out to a little more than normal to see if it spurs on the weight loss. I will say it made Labor Day a little harder because I felt like I wanted more crap and even *almost* rationalized it but caught it before it became an issue. I'm okay with what I went over for the weekend, which was really just one meal and it wasn't some clusterfudge...given the hell month I have on tap for September...I'll need the extra!
Did you have a planned splurge over the holiday weekend? A non-planned splurge or a little of both?
