Party vs Paleo. Day 4

Posted on

I’m a day behind in posting. But I’m sticking to this.  I moved categories on the scale to “normal body weight” on Thursday. I’m within about 10 pounds of my goal, and I’m really happy about this. I can almost touch it.

And I had an office party in the evening.  I ate delicious items that included wheat. I forgot about my Paleo Pledge, feeling heady with the scale success. I thought a little won’t matter. I enjoyed breaded veal and some mushroom risotto. And a couple of cranberry orange muffins. Ironically, one of my colleagues is allergic to nuts. He asked about ingredients before taking anything from the pot luck table. It didn’t occur to me that I could make the same kind of choice not to eat something. I went for the muffins because half-way through the evening I was hungry again. I didn’t feel satisfied after the veal, salad and risotto.  (I hate estimating party food.)

The scale was up a pound this  morning. Any of a variety of causes could be true, including a lot of muscle soreness from yesterday’s weight lifting.  But the downward trend continues. And I’m moving on from the party meal. Back to the land of purity. And awareness.
