The moral of the story is don’t assume a certain outcome and prime your data for that outcome. Just do what you do!
So, had I just stuck to my regular weigh-ins I would have had 307 the previous weigh-in and 303.8 yesterday (what I weighed after my long drive back home). I decided last night that since it was my last day of Spring Break I could indulge a little, so I did. I ordered pizza. It had been awhile, and boy was it good. And it didn’t hurt me too much in the count, so no problem. I was going to count any weigh-in under 307 as a success for my Spring Break of indulgences, so in that sense it was a success.
It was a success on many different levels. I ate out a few times and ordered salads (that I enjoyed!) which is new for me. FYI, Skirt Steak Salad is quite tasty. I’m not sure how healthy it is with the steak, but boy is it good. I was also able to walk pretty much every day on a route that was very similar in distance to my regular route here. That’s good because I’ll be living with my parents this summer while I work an internship down there, so it’s good to know that I can easily maintain my walking when I’m there this summer.
