37 Days Low Carb, Now with TWO Cheat Days

So... I had another cheat day. It was controlled and it did NOT include any ice cream or gelato. Why did I have? Especially a few days after my weigh-in?

Honestly? Because I was having a bad day and I wanted it. I also decided to eat that food, enjoy it and move on. I'm not going to spend days and days feeling bad about it, it's done, it was delicious and I don't feel nearly as sick as last time (probably because I took in a lot less sugar).

I probably won't lose weight this week thanks to that but I'll accept the consequences of my choices.

So right now I am at 37 days low carb with 2 cheat days which is still way better than I used to do.

So what's going on with the bad day? Here's a bulleted list...

1) I lose my extra prescription coverage thanks to the change in the way Charles gets paid. This must have kicked in last month because my prescriptions have been getting more and more expensive and I was dreading my most expensive (and, of course, most important ones). I picked one of these up today... I used to pay $1.20. Today it was $64.00 and that's for the smaller, monthly dosage. The bigger one will be even more.

2) This led to me having to put the gym on hold until I figure this out. Yes, I love working out at home and, yes, it's a great option for me but I was really liking the gym. So... it's back to home for now because expenses keep rising

3) And speaking on working out I have to have a cyst removed off of my back Monday morning (I've had it removed about 12 years ago but it's back and getting bigger) and I don't know how that will affect my workouts. I may have to do take a few days off and/or not do any where I rest my back against anything for a while. I'll find out Monday.

4) General crap going on with general things.

All in all, nothing massive is happening. It just all added up, put me in a horrible mood and the food make made me feel better. Also, it did not turn into a binge and I feel done with it now.

I'm going to try going another month before the next cheat day but we'll see what happens.

That's all I have right now.
