Short Saturday

Weight Statistics


Getting close to my low again so full hermit mode is in effect this weekend. Day 1 of Atkins went well. I’ll take a 2 pound loss. 😀

Yesterday’s Meal Plan

Chicken is back on the menu, but unfortunately my crock pot chicken doesn’t look as appealing or tasty. 😛

Breakfast – Tuna with avocados

Lunch – Hamburger patty with cheese slice and salad

Dinner – Chicken thigh with salad

Snack – String cheese

Calories – 1250

It is going to take me a while to adjust back to Atkins. I’m having a hard time coming up with calories. I had to add some extra olive oil to get up to 1200.

Aquarium Update

More carnage. I bought 20 more ghost shrimp to hang out with Blutto. I think I did that Thursday and as of this morning about 15 of the 20 have left their mortal coil. Something in the tank is killing them but not killing Blutto.  I haven’t put clean water in since I added the new shrimp so I didn’t poison them like I did the last time. Oh well, the shrimp experiment is over. No more.

Bike Riding

No ride on Friday. I decided to switch my off day to Friday and ride on Saturday because it was supposed to be super cool.

Tip Of The Day

Chart your progress. I originally started keeping all my weight statistics and food information in an excel spreadsheet, then I moved it all online. It is important that you keep a log of your weights and calories consumed. First it lets you see your progress and it keeps you accountable.

I’m testing a few new sites because the site I have been using for almost a year appears to be having issues and half the time I can’t get it to load.

In order to make a journal of all of your weights and calories, you will of course need to know how many calories you consume each day.  Label reading and measuring is an important tip that we must constantly adhere to. I know I get lazy and eyeball things too much so I have been forcing myself back to measuring everything out.

Measure it, add it up and log it in a journal or online site. Chart that progress and make changes where needed.

Happy Dieting, see you tomorrow,

The Grumpy Man

  1. That chicken sure looks good! You know when you stop over eating… Day’s seem longer. 🙂

  2. So true, so true… When I’m in the world of real food 24/7, I use an Excel spreadsheet as well. My dietician cracked up because I refused to use the form she provided… it didn’t have a column for calories. So I made my own (and being the super nerd that I am, it does my calculations for me). They soon figured out why I was more successful than many of the other patients… super nerd sometimes means super successful. I could take an honest look at what I was eating. Also, purchasing a kitchen scale was revolutionary!
