Dateline Wuxi, Friday December 28, 2012
No post nor exercise on Christmas Day, Tuesday, nor on Boxing Day, Wednesday. We had a visitor sleeping in our living room and that was my excuse.
Yesterday I did 617 calories on the elliptical machine.
Today it was 578 calories in my 31 minutes.
Ruth weighed in this morning at 63.3kg, up from her low of 62.2 over the past couple of months.
I weighed in at 94.7. Yikes. That’s up a kilo and .7 from my low of 93.0 and that low was just last week. So I’ve gained about three pounds in just a week.
Not surprising. Alcohol. Cream and egg nog. Shortbread cookies and sherry. So who is surprised that I’ve gained weight? Still it freaks me out that I can gain it as fast as I can take it off, or faster.
I’m still on holiday mode until New Years Eve, and then I’m going strict again. You hear me, glutton monkey on my back. Strict I say.
But until then… today I was really bad. Ate most of a large box of shortbread cookies washed down with sherry. Went out to dinner and ate deep fried pork and other oily Chinese food along with white rice. Finished off the last of the macadamia nuts. Yikes. I’ll be a tank by the time New Years Eve gets here.
