My plate at the last Mexican Feast. Had multiple plates and followed that up with Mexican food for breakfast the next morning.
My plate today. A small amount of taco meat with a dollop of sour cream and guacamole on the side. LOTS of salad. No second plate. Victory.
Oh, did I mention they also had the quarterly birthday cakes. Those things were beastly. They looked insanely good when sliced. I held my ground and didn’t eat anything.
Breakfast – Angus burger with cheese
Lunch – Taco meat, sour cream, guacamole and salad
Dinner – Turkey burgers with cheese and salad
Snacks – None
Calories – 1500
I’m sure the taco meat with jalapenos probably was LOADED with salt. I figure I’ve lost enough weight so I am not worried about a temporary water gain tomorrow. In fact padding my stats will make it easier to post a decent number next week. With that in mind I polished off two of the last three turkey burgers. Any gain tomorrow is just water and should be gone soon enough.
Daily Loss – 8/10 of a pound
Total Loss – 8 pounds
Good to see the scale moving down again but I was actually expecting a bit more than that. The scale is going to nail me a bit tomorrow with the big sodium spike today but it should be gone by Saturday as long as I am able to stay away from the giant pile of Mexican Feast leftovers.
I’m procrastinating again. I’ve got a bit of a bike problem. I ride the bike and I am pretty exhausted when I am done, then two hours later my body sends a wave of energy to compensate for the ride and I am wide awake and can’t get to sleep. 😛
I already wake up around 5am and leave for work every day at 5:45. I don’t see how I can wake up earlier and get my ride in before work. I would have to wake up at 4:15! I don’t see that happening although I might give it a shot.
Back. 8.8 miles. I probably would have continued but my mom called for the second time while I was on the bike and I didn’t want her thinking I was lying on the floor unconscious. 😛
The Office Competition
Tomorrow is the end of the first week. Not really a week. We started last Monday and then changed the official weigh day to Thursday. Tomorrow will be the first results so I can see who my main competition will be.
Mr. National guard appears to be eating everything in sight so I don’t think he will be tough to beat. Richard chowed down on the Mexican food and cake. I don’t think the competition has helped him find his mojo again. Still plenty of time to go, but he might not be as tough as he was last comp.
I am eager to see Gail’s weight. Looks like she will once again be my nemesis. I’m sure she had NOTHING from the free lunch other than lettuce and her normal broccoli. I guess we will find out if anyone new will step it up this time. With the competition only lasting 7 weeks, some people might give up before the thing even gets going. I need to collect the entry fees pronto before some people try to back out.
Mr. B is running but he eats a big pile on weekends. He had a business lunch today and went to town at a Mexican restaurant so the 7 pounds he had dropped last Thursday probably won’t hold and it certainly won’t be more than 7. This weekend is his anniversary so I doubt he behaves all weekend. Gail. She is going to be it. I’ll let you know how it went but probably not until Friday.
Happy Dieting, see you Friday,
