Sam – 168
Me – 168.7
Small bump up but not too bad considering I went out to dinner.
I really was expecting a bigger uptick from sodium. I imagine it will hit me tomorrow after another high sodium day today.

I think I did a pretty good job at the Yacht Club last night. A Caesar does have plenty of calories and sodium but compared to the alternative it could have been worse.
Sam didn’t eat too much either. He did have a few bites of bread pudding but I doubt he ate enough to boost his weight.
The true test was today at Casa Garcia. You will have to read tomorrow to see if I buried my face in a basket of chips and salsa.
I tried to get a ride in before going out to dinner so I headed up to the levee around 4pm. The wind was going crazy because a nasty storm was headed right at me. I rode my bike for about 7 minutes toward the storm and decided I didn’t want to get soaked so I headed back. Only a short ride but at least I tried.
Tip Of The Day
Eat normally all day when going out to dinner.
Many times, I try to make up for a big meal by skipping breakfast and lunch before going out to dinner. That never works. I am starving by the time dinner rolls around and I have no self-control once the menu arrives.
Eat your normal meals and you will have a much better chance picking the right options on the menu. It worked for me last night and it worked for me today for lunch.
Happy Dieting, see you tomorrow
