21st birthday party… doesn’t drink. Too many calories.
Goes to the gym… passes out before workout is finished.
when people ask me how many people I graduated, I always give them the same answer, 34.
I then get one of the following questions…
“did you go to a private school?”
“you’re kidding, right?”
“no really, how many people?”
then I hear…
“I graduated with 150, we had such a small class”
“I graduated with 1,000, graduation was in a stadium and took two hours!”
oh really? mine was on the front lawn of my school and took half an hour.
Have had that same conversation soooo many times. Graduating class of 32, baby.
So basically, in the last couple days, my macros got ALLL messed up, but my calories actually stayed within budget; so that’s pretty cool.
Basically, due to my family-life-situation I had three birthday dinners. First night with my mom - she home cooked stuff, all of which was highly acceptable food-material, and she made a frozen yogurt cake for me because she knew I wouldn’t eat real cake. So, I had more for dinner; but it was all pretty healthy so I was in at 1800 - which is my budget, so yay!
Next night, actual birthday night, I went to a reallllly fancy restaurant with my Dad. He got us a seven course meal (which was amazing amazing amazing, I love fine dining) and each course was paired with a different wine. As you can imagine, I was kinda freaking out, so I had like… an apple and some cheese the whole rest of the day. But the thing was, I was pretty easily able to estimate the calories in each course because the waiter explained EVERYTHING on the plate. Everything. In detail.
So with the help of livestrong.com I figure I came in like 140 calories over budget on the 2nd.
Deffos acceptable, especially given the awesome of the dinner!
Yesterday night, my sister and I chilled and watched some movies and had icecream and cookies. There’s no way that was healthy at all, but I managed it in moderation and I’ll just eat like 100% protein today, so it won’t be a problem!
So there you go, its possible to have a good time and stay within budget diet. Just don’t screw up your macros this much, this many days in a row, every week. That would be counter productive.
