Sick and Tired of Being Sick and Tired: Day 55

Posted by Edward Ernest | Oct 8, 2017 | Body Image, Sick and Tired of Being Sick and Tired | 0 |

If you look at my stats below, you’ll be able to see that eating healthy wasn’t in the cards today. The only veggies I had were in my sushi, and that’s pretty pathetic. Also, you’ll notice that my fat burning minutes were way down compared to every other walking day.

Is this a glimpse of what my retired life will eventually look like?

Since I was on vacation, when I did go on walks, I didn’t have anywhere to go, so I just strolled. And it seems strolling gets you nowhere when it comes to Fitbit stats.

This lack of movement, plus going to dinner and the movies, felt like I was going to regret this day in a big way. I’ve plateaued with my weight, and it’s been frustrating. I know when I get back home and step on the scale that I’ll be 3 pounds in the wrong direction. I just know it.

I mean, just look at my dinner and snacks. All terrible calories. We had dinner at the movie theatre, and its restaurant was closed, so we were forced to eat at the snack bar. Thus, the small pizza and fries order. And if you were wondering why my popcorn was so small, it wasn’t by choice. The popcorn came free with our ticket and was kid-sized in my opinion. I love popcorn, and I could have eaten a whole large, so maybe this was for the best.

But still, if you’re going to have a day where you break down completely, shouldn’t you enjoy it? All I got was shitty pizza and undercooked fries. I should have taken no dinner and a large bag of popcorn. I’ve done such things many times before, but I felt if I did so today, that my parents would judge me or complain about my choices….so I just went with the flow.

I’m beginning to think that I go to the movies these days just for the popcorn and couldn’t care less about the movie. I love popcorn. I don’t know why I wrote this part, but just thought you should be informed.

Anyways, I need to get home, as this food lifestyle is already killing me, mentally and physically. I’m already thinking about when I jump onto the scale tomorrow when I get home. And that’s not a good sign.

That’s it for this boring/sad edition of my life. Maybe I’ll have a real life tomorrow.
