Well, I was before derby practice tonight.
It really really makes a difference, what you eat. All calories are NOT the same.
I spent 3 days following Weight Watchers.
And then Saturday.
Saturday started with a lovely plate of steak and eggs and fried potatoes. It was a lovely breakfast. We had had a salad thing for dinner the night before – so no leftovers for lunch – which means buying something. I splurged. Sushi. mmmm sushi. I was in no shape for dinner, having probably (but not counting so not sure) eaten most of my points. Besides. Saturday was a planned write – off. The party was Saturday night.
Saturday night was a promise of good food, jello shooters and lots of palm bay. It turned out exactly like that. Great band. Awesome food. Incredible jello shooters. And a birthday cake/cupcakes with black icing.
I only ate 1 cupcake. The other three were sacrificed to a cupcake war.
It was a good night 🙂
By Sunday evening I was bloaty and gross and feeling like I’d gained 10lbs. Dinner was not so healthy – tacos. So when I saw that derby practice had been cancelled… I’m like… ok, whatever, I’ll have another.
3 tacos. Couple mugs of coffee. No water today
Doesn’t seem like much?
Try skating after having 3 tacos. Slightly overfull. Somewhat gross.
Yeah, that’s right. Practice was back on and I was late. And of course, tonight is Pacing Lines 101.
So here I am, overfull, too much coffee, not enough water, and now I’m skating for 2 hours. Practice sometimes runs drills where people will take turns practicing a skill – and I was hoping for this. Not tonight. Tonight was skating. Skating. And more skating.
It was a great practice. But this weekend has taught me that there WILL be a price for overindulgence. I may choose to pay that price. And this weekend was certainly worth it. I got to help celebrate a friend’s 40th.
I wish I’d drank more water and eaten less chips today though *snicker*
