For those people not familiar with Atkins, the first stage requires that you eat less than 20 net carbs per day.
This changes the engine that runs your body from a carb burning engine into a fat burning engine (ketosis). It is just common sense that to lose weight it would be best for your body to burn fat first so that is why Atkins works.
I’m not going to worry about the bike anymore. It appears I only have two options at this point. I can wait until 3/12 and get a $25.00 discount (they raised it last night) or I can get a refund but I will still have to go into the store when the canceled bike arrives and cancel it in person or I will be charged.
I think I am just going to take the $25.00 which I can use to buy the bike helmet but that means it will be at least another week before I get up on the levee.
The thing better arrive by the 12th. It really will be Armageddon if something else goes wrong. 😀
Yesterday’s Mean Plan
Breakfast – 3 eggs and 2 slices of bacon
Lunch – Chicken thighs with onion and a salad
Dinner – Hamburger patty with salad
Snack – string cheese
I know it is a broken record. I pretty much have the same thing every day. Having a regular routine makes things easy. Yes it may make things boring but boring is safer for me than difficult. If I have a difficult menu, that could give me excuses to cheat or give up. Having a set routine is important for some people. Other people need a touch more excitement and variety but for me I need something that is easy so I can’t make a single excuse not to follow the routine.
Wal-Mart…….oh wait. I said I was going to relax and not get stressed out over anything today. 😀
The rant has been closed today so that the Grumpy Man can relax.
Resist urge to scream about Wal-Mart………..
Ahhhhhhh, that’s better. Urge to scream resisted. Time for a relaxing happy Mardi Gras weekend if the darn weather doesn’t spoil the fun. 😀
Tip Of The Day
Don’t shop hungry. This is a good tip for people on or off diets. Try to shop after eating a meal or have a healthy snack before doing your grocery shopping.
Simple step, but it can really keep you from making some disastrous meal and snack choices.
It is also best to have a grocery list. Have all your meals planned out and the ingredients on a list. You need to get in and out of that store without making any purchases that could derail your diet so have a list and don’t enter the store starving.
I hope all you guys and gals have a great weekend.
Happy Dieting, see you tomorrow
