Bike Update

The idiots at Walmart have responded to my email by informing me that all orders processed online take 7 to 10 days to be processed.


Back in the early days of the internet, I never had something take so long to be processed. I’m not sure I have ever ordered anything online that took 7 days to RECEIVE in the mail, let alone simply be processed.

I am not happy and told them I wanted an email from one of the higher ups. This has to be about the worst online processing center in America.

I can order 3 DVDs from netflix and have them within 24 hours but Walmart can’t even tell a store with the item in stock, that I will be picking it up.

Maybe a little diet grumpiness, but this seems pretty absurd for an item in stock at the store I wish to pick it up.

Weight Loss Tips Wednesday!


Yesterday’s Meal Plan

Breakfast – Eggs

Lunch – Hamburger with salad

Dinner – Red Beans with sausage and salad

Snacks – string cheese & grapefruit

Hump day is here and I am feeling much better today than I have from Sunday-Tuesday morning. I gave myself a case of food poisoning by eating something from the fridge that evidently was spoiled.

Poisoned myself two days in a row. I didn’t think much of it on Sunday, but when it happened again on Monday right after eating the egg salad I made, I knew that it was time to toss the rest out. Blurp!

I sent a nice nasty email to Walmart about the fact I could have walked into their store on Monday and purchased the bike but because I used their brilliant online system I have to wait 7 to 14 days for the order to be processed. I can’t wait to get their automated response back. ūüėÄ

Had a little bump up but that is to be expected because I had a big drop yesterday and I may have been a little dehydrated from the stomach problems. TMI, INR.

I had 200 scheduled for the end of March anyway so I am on schedule. Just need to avoid the land mines of my birthday.


Portion control. I know I sort of mentioned this yesterday in the 9 tips, but I simply can’t emphasize the importance of knowing how much you are eating.

In the olden days, If I made a pot of something, I just popped that into the fridge and each time I ate something, I would¬†guesstimate¬†the amount. ¬†Not anymore. I figure out the total calories in the pot then divide by the number of portions. Then into¬†Tupperware¬†go the portions. Some go in the fridge and others go into the freezer. ¬†If I didn’t do this, a 9 portion crock pot of red beans and sausage would mysteriously only last 5 or 6 portions if that.

So dividing meals up into the correct caloric portions is THE most important tip. You simply must know what you are consuming and regulate that consumption if you want to be successful.

Some people take it to the extreme and weigh everything. I haven’t done that but I do have my trusty measuring cups and spoons that I use all the time.

Portion control. Live it, love it.

Happy Dieting, see you tomorrow.
