Starting Over Sunday

That button sure would come in handy after a day like Saturday.

My hand refused to stay away from the chips basket and the salsa. It reminded me of Evil Dead II or that horrible Michael Caine film, The Hand.

My hand just kept reaching for the chips and my mouth joined with my hand in mutiny. My brain looked the opposite direction and just whistled a guilty tune as if nothing was happening. 😀

I can hear the scale cackling with laughter in my bathroom just full of glee at the prospect of my weigh-in this morning. Excuse me while I grab my hammer…….

323/199.1/185 😦

Yesterday’s Meal Plan

Breakfast – None

Lunch – None

Dinner – Chips with salsa, chicken fajitas with rice and beans

Snack – Leftover fajitas.

Calories – 2000+

Skipped breakfast and lunch because I knew I was going to hit dinner hard. Chicken and onions aren’t bad but the rice, chips and tortillas will definitely knock me out of ketosis.  Should have just left the remaining tortillas on the table but I brought it home and snacked on it later in the evening. 😦

Biking Update

Er… hmmmm…. er…….

The weather got me.  I looked at the local wind gage on the internet and it showed sustained winds of up to 20 miles per hour and gusts to 25.

Didn’t even give it a try. Just said no thanks, not going to happen.

Sunday was supposed to be a day of rest but I will be up on the levee with my makeup day for skipping Saturday.

Tip Of The Day

Cheats aren’t the real problem with a long term diet. It is the period after the cheat that we make our real mistakes.

I say it all the time, but I will say it again and again and again.

Just pick yourself up and brush off the dirt.

Sometimes there is a lot of dirt. 😀

I didn’t have the best week last week.  Ate too much. Ate things with lots of sodium, but it wasn’t all bad. I improved on the bike and haven’t missed a day…oh wait. er….. Hadn’t missed a day until yesterday which I will make up today.

Now that I have had 2 cheats in one week, I am mentally ready to get back to work. I am going to hit that levee today even if I see a tornado and flying cows on the levee.

The most important thing to do when you have a hiccup is to just brush it off and get back on the diet. Don’t let one or two bad meals give you the excuse to quit.

I used to do that. Now they are just something to write about, learn from and move on.

Happy Dieting, see you tomorrow.
