A dietary observation.

I'm not back in any kind of training just yet. I ran twice this week, a pitiful 2k as a warm up for a weights session and a better 10k later in the week. I also went to kickboxing, which was incredibly good fun as most of the class was missing for one reason or another and that meant the hour consisted of sparring and practicing new punch kick combos on the heavy bag, all of which I much prefer to patterns and conditioning. Not that I'm against conditioning per se, but as a long distance runner it bores the ring off me.
Anyway, like I say not doing a whole lot, but I have abstained from all wheat and wheat based products, ditto alcohol. I was pleasantly surprised then this morning to discover I have lost 3 pound in weight over the course of 6 days. This confirms slightly what I suspected, that gargantuan amounts of toast are the devil's delicious smegma. It must be said that in the week before the marathon I piled on almost 4 pound in a carb loading free for all, but I had already taken 3 of those off in the first few days post marathon, so this is quite a shock. I imagine of course the hoochlessness makes a difference too, but still.
I've not being starving myself either, I had a portion of shepherd's pie the other night that could fell a horse. And porridge or bacon and eggs most days for breakfast. I haven't felt hungry once either, although I did look on with sheer longing as the paramour devoured white pudding on toast this morning- but it passed.
It might just be an anomaly, but I'll be interested to see what next Saturday's scales show when I up the training this week.
Not saying anything at the moment really-next week might be entirely different- but like I wrote at the top of the post, merely an observation.

3 pounds? Good Lord! How much toast were you packing away? The only time I got that kind of weight loss was when I stopped eating all carbs. And that was clearly no way to live.
Have you noticed anything else different since you've stopped the wheat?
I walked about 10 miles this week, which is the most active I've been in a long time. Yesterday, after my 2.5-mile walk to campus, though, I was seriously considering curling up on a bench outside the library and taking a nap.

There are benefits to the abstemious lifestyle, FMC. You'll probably lose another 3 pounds this week.
I've gained weight from all the damn Halloween candy I've been eating. I need to throw it out.

Blogger fatmammycat said...

I didn't think I ate that much wheat but I've since rethought that, you know, a pasta dish here, one hundred and eleventy three slices of buttery toast there, a coopers pale ale with dinner, some pints of a friday in Smurfs, crusty and very delicious buttery bread for sauce dipping there. It bloody well adds up. Not to mention the added calories of my wine habit. Bah!
I'm keeping the rice and potato though. I rather die a gelatinous mass than give up all carbs.
You're pregnant grims, your body will demand naps whether you do that walk or not, enjoy them, relish the napping.

Medbh, it is many a day I think marmalade I do not have a sweet tooth, for if I did I would be totally banjaxed.

Right we're off into town to source ingredients for a mysterious meal found in The Silver Spoon cook book. We may be some time.

Wish I could say I have your self control, Cat. Seems with the arrival of colder weather and darker days, I have lost all self control and enthusiasm for working out. Haven't gained much, a couple of pounds - but ugh! The damn laziness!

Anyway, worked out today - a good 40 minutes cardio, some yoga stretches and leg stuff. Tomorrow, will do it again and I have Tuesday off, so that'll be a bonus workout...

I have to know - white pudding on toast?????
Is it some Irish delicacy? It doesn't sound very tempting:)

8:27 a.m.  
Blogger fatmammycat said...

Oh Pat it might not SOUND it, but it's heavenly, you buy a ring of white pudding from a good butchers,( say Wilsons) slice off some slices, fry, butter up some chunky slices of toast, then spread the pudding all over, cover with lashings of white pepper and voila you have heaven. Mmmm.

9:30 a.m.  
OpenID grimsaburger said...

It is a great tragedy that we can't get white or black pudding here, except at the "Irish" pub in town on Sunday mornings, and I'm simply too cheap and lazy to drag my ass up there for breakfast. Of all the things Spouse got to see and do when he came to visit me on my long stay in Dublin, he was most impressed with the white pudding. I knew there was some reason I married him.

Dear FMC,

I'm going off the smokes this week and worry so about adding any more weight to my already large lump of a tum tum. The thing is I cant be doing with gyms, horrible places with nasty lycra clad pretty people.

Any help?
