Yesterday’s Meal Plan
Breakfast – grapefruit
Lunch – Red beans with sausage and salad
Dinner – Hamburger patties with salad
So it appears the evil plateau is possibly coming to an end. Good thing because I was really getting aggravated.
That of course is half the battle on a diet, heck most of the time the mental aspect is even more of the battle because it is so easy to just toss in the towel and head over to Taco Bell when aggravated or stressed out.
I use this site and a few forums to distract me when I am cracking a little. Letting off a little steam can be the difference between a great day and a day that ends looking like this.
Those trips to taco bell only end with temporary satisfaction followed by a sick stomach, guilt, depression and weight gain. So find a way to distract yourself away from hitting the fast food restaurants when you feel like you are going to crack.
Wal-Mart! These guys are really bugging me. Day 8 of waiting for my bike. Along with hating their stupid ordering process I also hate their stupid tracking software.
Heck, If you buy something from Old Navy, they seem to give you tons of updates on each little step your clothes take from their warehouse to my door.
Not so much with Wal-Mart. Hey Mr. Wal-Mart manager, what is the point of having a tracking link on your stupid site if it TRACKS NOTHING! For 7 days there has been no activity. Does this mean my bike has not even left the warehouse yet? I know it has been sent since you tell me, but all your tracking link displays on my order is the following picture.
End Wal-Mart rant.
Tip Of The Day
Spice things up. Luckily for me, I love hot spicy food. I was forced to cut my sodium intake so I needed to add something else to my food to bring a little excitement to the palate.
I’ve tried several of the low to no salt substitutes but they all tasted horrible for the most part. I can tolerate some, but none of them actually make the food taste great.
Then I started using sriracha. It is a very spicy sauce and with only 100 mgs of sodium per teaspoon. I use this stuff on everything these days. Since I eat mostly fresh unprocessed food, I have some room for sriracha at breakfast, lunch and dinner.
I still come in under 1500 mgs of sodium per day and at least my food has some flavor now thanks to sriracha.
Happy Dieting, see you tomorrow
