Still a slave to the scales

The weekend saw a large increase in my weight - 1kg - and I felt pretty awful about it. I know some of it is transient, but some of it is just because I ate badly and it will end up as fat. I was down and miserable when I saw the numbers on the scales. This morning, I'm 400g lighter and resultingly happier. Weight is so ingrained in my brain that it is very difficult to separate it from my mood and mental health, yet I know it is not the only indicator of healthiness. Yes, I'm 1% less fat than I used to be, but that's not tied into my brain yet and probably won't be until that number goes down lower. -If- that number goes down lower.

Exercise - intervals on the treadmill, plus some core work and a 2.4 mile run

B - porridge made with water and a splash of semi-skimmed milk, with raisins
S - almonds and brazil nuts
L - Beef Pho (I really wish this was less expensive, dammit!)
S - nectarine (forgot my tangerines today, booo!)
S - protein shake
D - pork meatballs in a tomato sauce with fresh tagliatelle
