The Immediate Contradiction

Last night it was our turn to host the tribe meeting for Evil Genius's Indian Princess tribe. This year instead of doing a regular meeting most of them are being held somewhere else.

Ella put on my vest.  goofball!

Not coincidentally, I finally replaced the battery in the bathroom scale over the weekend. This meant that my first MMNW (monday morning naked weight) since the spring was going to be terrifying anyway.

Since I haven't done a MMNW in a while, I think that around Rev3 CP race day I was sitting around 175. I know how those pants should fit. Real racing weight should be closer to 170, though I'll take 175 whenever I can get it. The comfort zone is 175 to 180, and anything over 185 is cause to start a weight loss phase. 

Typically I put on about 20 lbs right after an Ironman. This MMNW came in at 185.8 lbs and 22.1% bodyfat, so let's start counting those calories and cut out the meat, k?

Naturally, then, we hosted the Indian Princess meeting at our local Krispy Kreme. Each dad/daughter pair got 4 doughnuts to decorate, and Kelley wanted me to pick up another box while I was there just to have some to bring home.  This is not too bad.

Good turnout!

The kids all loved watching the doughnuts on the line

EG loved the decorating
I think we pulled off a pretty successful meeting! Everybody had fun and we didn't drive the doughnut makers crazy. And they got a special "doughnut decorator" patch for the vests!

And I only ate 1 doughnut. The rest of the day was really healthy portions of really healthy food, so I feel ok about it. Back under 180 in no time! 'nuts and all.

At least you only ate one doughnut! It's so cute to see all the dads and daughters doing fun things together. I love that. Also, I did not know you could decorate doughnuts at KK. Is that a special thing, or is it normal?

Oh that looks like fun for the girls! I took my scale to a race because I was trying to get a pre-race weight and post-race for the whole sweat thing. Anyhow. Of course I forgot the scale at the hotel and have been without one ever since. I think I would be afraid to step on one right now. ha ha.

Being around all that temptation and only eating one donut is great.
And oh the scale, they won't let me do naked weight at weight watchers... mean ladies.

Next time you need to invite me. one donut. I think there's some kind of rule about having one donut.

You put on less weight than you thought you would! I think you look slim and trim so am not surprised the scale said what it did. But it will be good to get back to a different diet and to eat less, I imagine! I tended to put on some weight when marathon training. Right now I am at the lowest weight I have been in 5-6 years and I think it's because I am still running an average amount of miles (25-30) but I am also doing a lot of other cardio and strength training workouts. My eating could definitely improve, though, as I have been justifying way more snacks and treats than I normally would!

Looking good. You'll be back to a comfortable weight for yourself by the end of the week, I'm sure.

Looks like KK was a hit.
