TestyThursday

Doesn’t look like the gain was water weight or it would have been flushed out by now. So I guess it was muscle combined with a real gain.

I was expecting the scale to be back down around my low by now, but it is refusing to head much lower which has me firmly in my normal frame of mind. 😀

323/197.8/185

Yesterday’s Meal Plan

Breakfast – Tuna fish, hard-boiled egg, avocados

Lunch – Chicken with onions

Dinner – Hamburger patty with salad and cheese slice

Snack – String cheese and hard-boiled egg

Calories – 1300

I still have some eggs to get rid of so I hard-boiled them and will use them up with the tuna or in my salads. Once out, I am done with eggs. We are no longer friends.

Need to make more chicken in the crock pot today or tomorrow. No bay leaves this time and half the water I used last time.  I am thrilled to be done with that watery bay leaf soup.

Bike Update

No update since yesterday was Wednesday. Until further notice I take Wednesday and Sunday off from any form of exercise.

I think I may try to add a bit of length to my ride today which I will embark on as soon as I finish this post. Hmmm, wonder if I can keep typing for the next 9 hours. 😀

Tip Of The Day

I’m short on time today so here’s a simple tip. Read labels. You need to know what you are putting in your body. I see people all the time that are not losing weight and don’t know why, yet they just guesstimate what they are eating instead of KNOWING the calories in what they are eating.

Read your labels and find out restaurant nutritional information online BEFORE going to  a restaurant if possible.

You would be shocked to see some of the high calorie salads or grilled chicken dishes that some restaurants have on their menus. Just because something sounds healthy doesn’t mean it is actually healthy.

Soup companies have been promoting soup as ultra healthy for years and years even though each can is nothing more than a sodium bomb unless it is the low sodium version.

Read labels. Take the time to actually study everything you eat.  I think in many cases where people can’t lose any weight they simply are taking in more calories than they thought.  Heck, I probably do that sometimes. I’ve become a tad lazy breaking out the teaspoon and tablespoon.

Just make sure you know the caloric impact of everything you eat so pick up those reading glasses if you need to and read all the labels. I bet some of you will be shocked by the amount of sodium you put in your body each day.

Happy Dieting, see you tomorrow
