However, coming into this weekend, I knew I was going to be facing a dilemma pertaining to which day I was going to utilize as my "Cheat Day." It made perfect sense to use my "Cheat Day" on Saturday (today) because Patty and I are going to be attending a birthday party and the father of the child is a cook. So right there, I knew I was going to be heading into a battle with my "Will Power" because I will be surrounded by great tasting food. On the other hand, I like saving my "Cheat Day" for Sunday because I usually try to relax and watch football. What better day to eat unhealthy then on Sundays. So you can obviously see that I was conflicted about which day to choose.
Well, I can tell you that my decision was made as soon as the lids came off of the food trays at the party today. I had eaten a nice healthy breakfast and lunch today, hoping I would be able to make through the party and coast into Sunday with a "Cheat Day" in my back pocket. But as soon as the people sitting next to me sat down with their plates full of food, I jumped up and made my way towards the buffet line. I had folded, like I thought I would, and had my "Cheat Day" today.
After the party was over, my stomach was letting me know exactly how it was feeling after eating. To be honest, I really didn't stuff myself at all. But it wasn't until I had a piece of birthday cake that I really knew I was going to be in for a long night. I ended eating around 5:00pm and amazingly, I wasn't hungry for the rest of the night, but my stomach was still upset. Now, usually when I have a "Cheat Day" I don't workout because I am afraid that my stomach will react even worse after I put it through some physical activity. However, I weighed in at 248.2 lbs this morning and I was nervous about having a little set back after getting into the 248 pound range. So around 11:30pm, I decided to go running outside. To make a long story short, I ended up running for 35 mins straight (a new personal best outside) and surprisingly my stomach ended up settling a little. Who knew that exerciseing tonight would be the key to helping my stomach feel better.
With that being said, let's get to the details of the day:
Meals of the Day (The Heavy Man - 37 Points)
(I am currently following the Weight Watchers Points System)
*Today was a "Cheat Day" and I normally don't record my daily points on a "Cheat Day" because they will be over my daily limit regardless.
Breakfast - 2 Eggo nutrigrain waffles with a serving of strawberries
Lunch - 1 serving of homemade Chicken Cordon Bleu (Weight Watchers Recipe) with a side of whole wheat pasta with parmesan cheese
Dinner - I had some pasta with broccoli, some chicken, some lasagna, and some sausage and peppers.
Dessert - I had a piece of birthday cake
Today I ran for 35 mins outside. Tomorrow I will be doing cardio outside as well.
