Well, reverse dieting.. I'm not on a diet or trying to lose weight. I'm purposefully increasing my weekly food intake to fuel my metabolic capacity. So, fluctuations are part of the equation. BUUUT, my slight binge weekend certainly did play a role.. and the fact that (TMI, I know) I'm on my period. I usually gain 1-2 kg few days before or during my cycle. Here's specifics:
Thursday, 2 Oct, my weight stayed the same at 58.0 kg's. Friday, 3 Oct, I hit my macros but indulged a bit on my #1 childhood cereal after I discovered it in store that day (okay, more like half a pack). The macros on it is waaay better than I thought, so I'll be eating it often! I also had a Protein bar to match the carbs lol... On Saturday I did not binge, but I only had one meal in macros. Then throughout the day I ate whenever I was hungry, foods, not all candy and carbs as always. I enjoyed a buffet lunch Sunday, the 5th, with a friend, well, I enjoyed the company.. the buffet was unappetising. It wasn't even a buffet. I didn't make notes on what I ate the rest of the day, but my candy stash is still filled with goodies, so I didn't have a sugar surplus as usual. Although I did have wayyy too much of my mom's home-made banana bread.
Apart from the semi rebound weekend, I had every meal in macros since Monday the 6th. Not over or under once, but my weight fluctuated sooo much. Wednesday= 58.8 ; Thursday= 58.0 ; Friday= 59.1 ; Saturday= 59.1. I do however attribute some of the fluctuations to the fact that I got my period yesterday (Monday, 13th Oct, this is a late progress post). I'll see how I look and feel next week. Hopefully I won't feel as bloated, flabby, bulky and uncomfortable as I do now.
