So Easter Sunday... I was invited to friends for an evening dinner etc so I decided the best thing was to fast up until dinner and then just not worry too much about what I ate/drank at dinner. At least not having breakfast and dinner would minimise the damage of such an occasion I figured.
So it started with some crackers and cheese (no extreme face-stuffing!), and half a bottle of red wine.
So we made some pretty bad sangria, and as taste-tester I drank too much! But that was fine.
Dinner was a roast shoulder of meat with gravy and some salad. I actually wasn't that hungry and didn't eat much at dinner... Mostly liquid diet! I didn't plan for it to happen, but that's the way thing were going so I went with it.
So anyway, calorically... I'd say about 1800-2000 total...
But I ended up with my head in a bucket when I got home later... So I don't know how that works calorie wise.
Anyway, next day, I weighed in and was expecting to be at 74.something... I was at 75.5kgs... And I've stayed there since! I've done a couple of fast days since, but ended up eating more later in the night as I was working very late so probably 1200-1500 calories both times... Still, overall, I should be averaging below maintenance!
I thought that sudden gain must have just been water retention from abusing my body with wine, but water weight shouldn't take this long to come off.
So kind of frustrated to now be above where I started!
