Night & Day

The difference between my hunger during the day and during the night is like the difference between night and day.

I have no problem during daylight hours then by 8pm, I become a raving lunatic.

There is definitely a Jekyll / Hyde thing going on. ๐Ÿ˜€

I need to force myself to eat dinner a little bit later. Maybe around 7pm unless I am going out.

Weight Statistics


Mega water drop. I was all the way up to 179 yesterday and today I was back down to 176.7 and I think I will have another good dip down tomorrow. I dropped 3 pounds. Dang water weight. ๐Ÿ˜›

I had a great eating day yesterday and a great day so far tonight as long as I can keep Mr. Hyde from appearing.

Yesterday’s Meal Plan

Breakfast – Oatmeal Peaches & Cream

Lunch – Red beans and rice with sausage

Dinner – Turkey and cheese on wheat with salad

Snack – Plain oatmeal and wasabi peas

Calories – 1275

Biking – 0

Net Calories – 1275

I used the last flavored oatmeal packet yesterday and now I am using the plain oatmeal with a few splenda packets which is about 3 carbs as opposed to 30 carbs. I’m not sure where those 30 carbs are hidden because the 3 packets of splenda make the oatmeal taste sweeter than the flavored oatmeal with the exception of the maple flavor.

The plain oatmeal is also a good bit lower in sodium.

Biking Updateย 

I was a bit lazy yesterday and couldn’t force myself out. I put my biking gear on and then took it off. Spoiler Spoiler Spoiler. I did have a pretty solid ride today. Tune in tomorrow for the details.

Tip Of The Day

Beware sodium

Just look at what happened after my taco bell incident and the Chinese buffet. I gained about 8 pounds which is impossible. I didn’t eat 8 pounds of food or calories but somehow the scale shot up to the moon.

Sodium can keep that scale moving in the wrong direction so try to cut back a bit. I’ve been trying out a higher sodium level and it simply is not working for me so I am back into lower sodium mode and once I get back into Atkins, I will get back to my really low sodium mode.

Beware the evils of sodium. ๐Ÿ˜€

Happy Dieting, see you tomorrow
