Apple Day

Apple Day to the rescue! I had a busy long weekend (Fri-Sun) with family in town, and ended up taking an unplanned interruption from Phase 2. We were busy running around and I hadn't prepared meals for myself, so I was caught in restaurants having to do the best I could, and went off protocol. I also saw the new Harry Potter movie and made a conscious choice to eat some popcorn. The weekend left me up a few lbs, which I expected. OK it was 5 lbs. I know! Cheating is bad! Anyway, so I scheduled an Apple Day for Monday.

Apple Day sounds like it will be awful. Nothing to eat but six apples all day? It's not so bad, as long as you like apples. I just ate mine plain, though I suppose you could bake one with cinnamon for some variety. At the end of the day I was hungry, but not starving, and I knew I'd make it to morning, especially since I was expecting a nice loss on the scale.

I've done Apple Days a few times before, to get through a stall, and it worked - I'd lose a pound or so and be back on the losing track. I learned today, though, that it's also very effective to help with an interruption. I think it's something about the lbs that you JUST put on coming back off quickly when you get back on track. At any rate, my scale surprised me with a 4.3 lb loss today. That's almost all the weight I gained from the weekend. Hooray for Apple Day! Now I'm back on track for the second half of this Phase 2.
