Day One Hundred Eighty-Three

August 23rd, 2016 at 12:37 pm

Calories: 1698

The calories above reflect the free meals I got at the College -- all kinds of stuff I shouldn't have had! But I did take plenty of fruit as well.

I skipped dinner entirely, having maxed out my calories. I realized that I was following the pattern of Intermittent Fasting, which Dido (?) mentioned yesterday. I did all my eating within eight hours. I've been kind of unconsciously following that pattern, because I so often do finish up my calorie count rather early in the day. It's not too uncomfortable, but I think ideally I would rather spread out the calorie count through the day, rather than feast and fast. But I think I'll read up more about it. It might be good for maintenance, once I reach a weight I'm satisfied with.

My car is hesitating upon acceleration. It may be that I got bad gas. Or the fuel injectors may be clogged or going bad. Anyway, I'll start out by getting a fuel injector cleaner. I can do that today; there's an auto parts store right by the gym.

Today IHOP is serving $1 short stacks. I think I may indulge. I know I have been kind of an IHOP hog lately, but the calorie count for a short stack really isn't too bad. It just doesn't offer much food value.

The $1 collected will go to a charity.

I'll survey the parking lot first -- if it looks like the place is jammed, I'll probably pass.

Meeting my friend E. tonight for dinner. She has selected a tavern in the station complex where I used to transfer. Should be easy to get to. I'm really looking forward to seeing her again; it's been a long time!

    Recently I learned that breakfast might not be as important as I've always heard, so I've been skipping the meal sometimes, and having a smaller lunch. I feel like this might allow me to have larger dinner portions, which I prefer, and not gain weight. And I'm trying not to snack after dinner. So it's a bit like intermittent fasting. I'm going to see if it leads to weight loss without calorie counting. I've done this for about two weeks and have gone down incrementally (.4 lbs, .2 lbs) at my last two weigh-ins. We'll see. This is a hard week because I'm going to the State Fair Friday and Saturday, and I love to indulge there, so I'm trying to be extra extra good this week leading up to it!

    I saw that it was IHOP $1 on Facebook. Sounds like a great deal, especially if the money goes to charity.

    Hope you have fun with your friend today.
