Diabesity Challenge Day #35 – Mr. Bread Head Screwed Up

original_dali-blogI went a little crazy with the bread yesterday as our schedule was kind of all over the map. As we initially were going to have family over for lunch I went out and picked up all the ingredients to make “Jersey Boardwalk” sandwiches. Before I even had a chance to start cooking I discovered that our plans had changed and we would be off to baby sitting in an hour. I ended up eating one of the rolls with butter for breakfast. When we arrived my son had picked up sandwiches and salads for lunch. More bread. After babysitting we rushed to the hospital to see our premie granddaughter and by the time it was dinner time I was famished. Rather than going out we headed home and popped a frozen lasagna in the oven. I ate that with, yes of course, a couple slices of bread.

So here I sit looking like Mr. Bread Head with my body weight moving back up a bit and a higher than normal blood sugar reading. Sometimes being a Pop Pop has it’s drawbacks.

Well there is only one thing left to do… “Hit those weights hard Billy! You totally screwed up yesterday and you will perform this morning. You will raise the weight on each exercise and hammer out as many reps as your body can muster. A roll and butter? What the hell were you thinking? You don’t eat things like that. All you had to do was grab a protein shake and go. And you should have taken that sandwich apart and thrown that bread right in the trash. And dinner could have been just a small piece of lasagna and a big salad, not a piece of freaking bread”.

I find that this happens each time I lose control of my own schedule and I must learn to stop and really think about what and where I will eat during the day rather than allowing life to pull me into directions I don’t want to go when it comes to food. So here I stand with  yet another simple rule… “Don’t be a BreadHead”!
Blood Sugar- 112, Body Weight- 183.0

Bowflex- BACK
Pulldowns- 150/150- 25, 26
Rows- 150/150- 18, 23
Reverse Fly’s- 55/55- 14, 13

    I could join the club, but my result is aching joints and bloating. Willpower is my shortcoming!

  2. I get ya. Bread is a killer for me, but I love it.

    LOVE the picture, Bill. Hilarious!

    Everyone screws up, but I feel your pain. I agree with you about a schedule. Staying faithful to your routine is VERY difficult when there is NO routine. It happens — it’s always Day #1.

    Congratulations on yet another grandchild. You’re one lucky man!
    Count them — motivation to do the “right” thing.

    One day at a time. You’re doing great

    I’m having difficulty adjusting to metformin. My weight is the highest it’s ever been and my dad died from a lack of self care (type 2). I don’t want to follow in his footsteps but change is so difficult especially now because 3.5 years ago my world was turned upside down by divorce. Any motivating words?

    • Do something positive just for today. Take a walk, eat something healthy. Just for today, one day out of your life treat your body to something it really wants. Tomorrow will bring what tomorrow brings, but for today your are awesome and will find a way to take just one baby step towards better health.

    Oh the day after a carb fest….you feel like crap…no ambition, guilty thoughts floating in your mind…I have to agree with Kathy above….she said it all….just let it go…get up and do something positive for yourself….again I am reading backwards and now I know why you have no energy…your bodies busy digesting carbs…..head up…this to will pass..don’t beat yourself up…carbs are my heroine in life….can’t stop with just a little…must have more!!!!..

  6. I find it helps to carry nuts with me at all times so I don’t make any bad decisions when overly hungry. Bread is so convenient though!

    • Living on the Pacific Northwest there are nuts around me most of the time. I suppose I can’t eat them though. Sorry, just a little morning humor. Actually I keep pistachios on hand and find that they sometimes fill the void.

    Admit it, Billy. It was the trip to Starbucks that got you carbo craving… 🙂
