Free Lunch Miracle!

Maybe not as big of a miracle as Elvis on toast, but I was able to behave on Free Lunch Wednesday for the first time in what seems like forever.  I behaved even though I wasn’t in such a good mood after last night. Yes, I am one of those. 😛

Today’s Menu

Breakfast – Pork loin with cheese

Lunch – BBQ Chicken Thigh with salad

Dinner – Turkey burgers with salad

Calories – 1500

I skipped the fried chicken and mac n cheese. I stuck with salad and then a little more salad with one BBQ thigh although I am sure the BBQ thigh was just as bad as a fried thigh.

We had a vendor stop by for a presentation so I also had to avoid the temptation of a giant tray of poboys. Not to mention leftover Halloween candy on the grazing table.

I had to pick up some cold meds on the way home from work and I gave a LONG HARD stare at the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ben & Jerry’s as I passed the ice cream aisle.

I was strong and I left the store with no ice cream so I have been able to string 4 good days in a row. I haven’t had an eating mishap since Saturday. The good news is that I should be able to have a good day tomorrow. I don’t think there were any leftovers from the lunch today.  People hit it and they hit it hard.

The Bike

After 3 rides over Saturday and Sunday, my legs were out of gas the last few days.

5.05 Miles

All I had in me on Monday was a 20 minute easy ride. I couldn’t muster anything else.


Even worse. I thought I was weak and tired on Monday. Tuesday, the tank really was on empty.

5 Minutes on Lvl 5

That was it. I could barely push the pedals.

42 Minutes. Not bad. I wanted to hit 60 but I was worn out at the 42 minute mark. I’ll take the day off tomorrow because I don’t get home until around 10pm.

Night! I’m all worn out.

Happy Dieting, see you tomorrow
