Beat Down!

My diet took a beat down just like my Saints! The diet cheat was planned. The beat down by the Rams was not planned. 😛

I blame them for all the cookies and extra pizza I ate to console myself for the horrific loss. 😀

Weight Statistics


There is a pretty good chance that the number goes even higher tomorrow even though I had a great Monday. I ate about 8k, yes 8k, milligrams of sodium yesterday. Insane. That means my body is probably going to hold onto every single drop of liquid I drink today.

Yesterday’s Meal Plan

Breakfast – Burger patty and cheese

Lunch – Spinach dip with chips, Pizza

Dinner – More pizza

Snacks – Chocolate chip cookies

Calories – 4k +

Biking – 0

Net Calories – 4k +

Ouch! My sister made her famous spinach dip yesterday and the basket of chips and giant bowl of dip was right next to me. I blame her evil cooking for my diet woes! 😛

Just joking. 😀

Actually, I’m not worried about yesterday. It was planned and I don’t see another planned cheat for at least two weeks and maybe all the way up to T-Giving.

Wow, I’ve got a lot of work to do over the next three weeks to get back into the weight loss battle with Optifast Loser. Three weeks of Atkins should get me back to my low or better. I’ve spotted him a huge head start but most of this weight is water. Some is real but most will fall off as the sodium moves out.

Biking Update

Are you kidding me? I was so stuffed yesterday I could barely move. No chance I was headed up to the levee for a ride yesterday.

Tip Of The Day

One concept I still need to learn and we all need to learn is to eat less even when pigging out.  I still tend to go overboard on my cheats. Well past the level of being comfortable.

One key way to do this is to eat SLOWER. Slow down the meal so your body has a chance to send the ALL FULL signal.  I really could have  and should have used this tip yesterday.

I was full but probably ate 3 more slices of pizza and then a mess of cookies even though I was about to explode like Mr. Creosote in Monty Python’s Meaning Of Life.

If I had slowed down a bit, the signals would have reached my brain to STOP EATING BEFORE YOU EXPLODE. I didn’t wait for those signals and I need to work on that.  We really need to learn to slow down when eating and give our body time to catch up to our mouths.

Happy Dieting, see you tomorrow
