HUNGRY with a side order of GRUMPY!!!

I was famished last night and continue to be insanely cookie monster hungry this morning. I was so hungry, I had myself convinced that a cheat was the right thing to do. My stomach feels like an endless black hole devouring anything in its path.

The devil on my shoulder……

convinced me that even though I went out for lunch, a nice visit to Taco Bell was in order to satiate my hunger.

The angel on my shoulder…..

looked the other way. No help there. I guess he was hungry too.

Sorry Clarence, Liz Hurley is going to win 10 out of 10 times. 😛

I didn’t go to Taco Bell. What???

I convinced myself to wait until I hit a new low before heading out for a cheat.  I made this plan expecting to hit 163 this morning, but instead of losing weight, I gained weight. 😦

So I am grumpy!!!

Weight Statistics


Even though I have dropped about 9 pounds in a short time, I wasn’t expecting a slowdown yet. All of that weight was water. I figured the slowdown wouldn’t hit until I dropped my low by a couple of pounds.

Yesterday’s Meal Plan

Breakfast – Eggs

Lunch – Grilled shrimp Caesar

Dinner – Tuna salad

Snack – Baked chicken

Calories – 1450

Biking – 0

Net Calories – 1450

I followed through on my tip. I stuck with the meal I picked online and had the grilled shrimp Caesar. I guess it is possible, the Caesar was LOADED with sodium which caused a very temporary slowdown.

Dang scale better move in the right direction tomorrow or it might find a new job as a piece of performance art smashed on the parking lot below my balcony. 😛

Biking Update

Steady winds of 20 to 30 mph. No thank you!

Tip Of The Day

There will be many frustrating days like the one I am having. You need to learn to deal with that frustration without grabbing the bag of Doritos or the box of donuts.

Make sure you have a good place to vent some frustration when the diet is making you GRUMPY!

I vent here and I vent a few other places online. Getting that frustration out and getting some sympathy from your fellow dieters can really make a huge difference in keeping you on the right path.

Happy Dieting, see you tomorrow
