The Dark Horse

Uh oh! I was spending my winnings too soon. We have a new dark horse emerging in the office competition. The National Guard guy decided to get serious and ran 6 miles a day over the weekend and dropped 5 pounds. If he can keep that up, he will blow past me. 😦

Oh well. I’m pulling for him anyway because he needs to lose weight to keep his job with the National Guard.

I just got back from a birthday party and I only did a fair job hanging on to my willpower. I had a chicken tortillas and a steak tortillas. The tortillas were low carb and I might need to look into those things (La Banderita Low Carb Soft Taco). They were tasty and only 5 net carbs and 81 calories.  I would give myself a passing grade if I had stopped there but the chicken and sautéed onions kept screaming out to me. The scale might be a tad ugly tomorrow.

Weight Statistics


Half pound bounce up this morning. Not sure why. I had a great day yesterday with only 1450 calories and  a normal sodium load. Tomorrow the sodium bug might bite me. Calorie wise, I think I did just fine but I am sure the chicken and steak had a touch of salt.

Today’s Menu

Breakfast – Turkey burger with cheese

Lunch – None

Dinner – 1 steak tortillas, 1 chicken tortillas with onions and peppers. Chicken with onions and peppers

Snack – Turkey burger with cheese

Calories -1500

The calories might even be a tad lower than that or maybe slightly higher but that is probably a pretty decent estimation. As I said, the sodium will get me not the calories. Looks like a repeat of last week with a great Sunday weigh-in and then gains leading up to the Wednesday weigh-in.


I want to give a shout out to two ladies who have been following the blog and working hard to lose weight. Hey Janice! Hey Rebecca! Keep up the great work! 😀

Computer Update

The  order was processed on Saturday and was supposed to ship today but as of the last tracking update it was still sitting up in NJ. I feel a rant coming on….. 😛

Tip Of The Day

Weigh yourself at least once a week. I actually think daily is best but I understand the pros and cons of waiting a week vs daily. Daily fluctuations can cause people to quit but you can have the same fluctuations if you weigh once a week.

BUT… don’t go longer than a week. The scale keeps you honest. The second you abandon the scale is the second you get in deep water and every day away from the scale is one day closer to quitting.

The scale keeps us accountable and keeps us moving in the right direction.  That doesn’t mean we have to like the lies that stupid scale spouts out from time to time. 😀

Happy Dieting, see you tomorrow



The Grumpy Man

I Don’t Like Mondays…

Another unexplained Monday bounce up!

That is all for now. 😛
