I sat through an entire day of lectures, and heroically stayed awake the whole time. That is quite an achievement, especially with the 7 am wake up time (the princess does NOT like to get up before 8 am). What is even more of an achievement is that I did not have a single pastry, and boy, did they have fabulous looking treats the whole day at the conference! French pastries of all kind, cheese platters, fruit platters, cold cuts, etc. All I had was coffee. Lots of it. Which is how I managed to stay awake to begin with.
At the end of the day, my total calorie intake was hovering around 1400 or so, a little more than I had planned, but tolerable. I think I will be content with anything below 1500 for now, as long as I run my 4.5 miles as usual. I was alone in the hotel's fabulous workout room. They provide towels, water, toiletries, a nice sauna (that was so relaxing after the workout), and once again I felt very pampered. Tomorrow I am hoping that I can get my foot into BEDO, a nice clothing store in Vancouver which, if my memory serves me right, tends to always have a sale that overlaps this conference (I swear this is not why I signed up for it. The French pastries are not the reason either. I am called towards higher learning, 's all).
To prove once and for all that I do, undeniably, have obsessive compulsive disorder, here is what I did this evening after my workout:
9:30 sauna, drink Perrier
9:45 get back to room, undress, have a hot bath
10:00 weigh myself, weighing in at an ALL TIME HIGH of 168 lb. Never before have I been this heavy while non pregnant. The scale is not my friend. Will toss it from 22nd floor and never ever weigh myself again.
10:30 pee. Weigh myself again: 167 lb. This is looking better. Go back to reading cheap girlie book while holding MrH's hand in fabulous bed.
11:00 pee again. Weigh again, just for kicks: 166.6 lb. Feeling A LOT less anxious. This scale is not so bad after all. Perhaps I should buy one for home as well.
11:45 pee again. Should not have drank so much water. Resist urge to weigh again, since I need to prove to myself that I am in control of my OCD.
11:46 after long debate, weigh myself again. 166.1 lb
Go to bed a happy woman.
Can't wait to pee again in the morning.
