That baby has the exact same look I had on my face this morning after I got on the scale, saw my weight, then calmly placed some dynamite on the scale and headed for the choppa.  A shame that was just a nice daydream. That scale really deserved a bit of pain this morning.

Weight Statistics


Up 1.3 pounds even though I had a great eating day. I just don’t get it. Up almost 8 pounds in 8 days without cheating. So I snapped. I cheated. I didn’t go crazy but I am sure I will have an even more annoying scale reading tomorrow.

Yesterday’s Meal Plan

Breakfast – Oatmeal

Lunch – Read beans and sausage

Dinner – Turkey sandwich with salad

Snack – Chicken wrap with salad, Coconut ice cream bar

Calories – 1350

Biking – What is this biking you speak of?

Net Calories – 1350

I have no clue what is going on. Atkins or carbs, I should be losing weight not continuing to go up. I went a little bonkers today and ate an extra red beans portion and I went to Popeye’s. First trip to Popeye’s since the diet started 17 months ago.

I only have one option at this point and that is to head back into Atkins induction until I lose this weight, then try again to add some carbs back into my diet but this time using the slower Atkins maintenance instead of just jumping full throttle back into carbs.

Biking Update

No excuse. Just didn’t want to head up to the levee last night so I didn’t.  😛

Tip Of The Day


When you have a bit of a temper tantrum pity party like I had today, you need to grab that rebound and take another shot. I won’t let today send me into an out of control spiral. I know what I need to do so I will do it. Back to Atkins induction and then once I am back to 165, I will slowly add carbs back into my diet.

Don’t let one bad mistake spiral out of control and cause you to continue making more mistakes. Grab that ball and take another shot. I will starting tomorrow. 😀

Happy Dieting, see you tomorrow
