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.
I need to force myself to eat dinner a little bit later. Maybe around 7pm unless I am going out.
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. 😛
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.
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
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. 😀
Happy Dieting, see you tomorrow
