Big Pile of Temptations

The morning started with several big bags of beignets. None for me!

5 trays of fried shrimp, hot roast beef, ham & cheese, turkey & cheese and pastrami & cheese poboys. I had the fun task of picking them up. The smell of the fried shrimp was overpowering!

After the devouring hoard demolished the food. None for me! Those sandwiches hung around all day. Oh, on top of all of those temptations, we had plenty of leftover meatballs and lasagna.

The Menu

Breakfast – Angus burger with cheese

Lunch – Pistachios

Dinner – Tuna and salad

Snacks – Chicken, pistachios

Calories – 1250

Rats! Another pistachio violation!

The Bike

My legs were a little bit better tonight. 51 minutes for 12.7 miles.

Now on to the important news of the day. Nothing much to report on the scale. It didn’t budge an inch from yesterday so I am down 13.8 pounds since the competition started. Speaking of which….

fa00f-the-biggest-loser-pinoy-edition

Gail     – 6.30%
Me       – 6.06%
Mr. B  – 5.22%
Kman  – 4.70%
Cap      – 3.94%
Cindy  – 3.18%

I dropped 3 pounds this week and Gail only dropped 1 pound. She stayed in first place but I pulled much closer to her. Now the head games start. Did she really only drop 1? Did she wear heavy clothes or drink tons of water in order to hide her real drop? 😛

Mr. B continues to work hard.  Heck, if I don’t catch Gail, I am not even assured second if Mr. B continues to run and run and run. I have to keep hitting it and hitting it hard.

In order to win, I think I need to drop 3 pounds a week for the last two weeks. 6 more pounds and I might take the crown. Only problem is I don’t think I can lose that much in the last 2 weeks. I’ll give it my all. Just  two more miserable weeks.

Happy Dieting, see you tomorrow

Free Lunch Wednesday!

Meatballs and spaghetti and lasagna with garlic bread. It smelled delicious. None for me.

Also had some sliced poboys tempting me at a lunch and learn. None for me.

Weight Statistics

Daily Loss – .8 of a pound

Total Loss – 13.8 pounds

Good thing the scale went down. I was going to have a nervous breakdown if the darn thing didn’t drop after the long ride yesterday. I need another big drop tomorrow if I have any chance of catching Gail. 😛

The Menu

Breakfast – Angus burger with cheese

Lunch – Chicken

Dinner – Tuna with salad

Snacks – Pistachios

Calories – 1250

I had my first pistachio violation today. I hit 3 packs instead of 2. That kicked my carbs higher than they should be but it didn’t hurt on the calorie side of things.

The Bike

I was worn out. My legs were not up to the task this evening.  I still ended up with 43 minutes for 10 miles.

Tomorrow is weigh day! I’ll dream of Gail eating cake and ice cream tonight. 😛

Happy Dieting, see you tomorrow

Whatever!

Scale decided to go up today!

Think I gave the bathroom door a similar nudge this morning.

Meanwhile we had a table full of candy, donuts, banana bread, and jalapenos cheese bread.

A couple of bags that may or may not have found their way into my desk.

Calories – 1200

50 Minutes 11.75 Miles

Happy Dieting 😛

See you tomorrow

A Bit Worried

I broke out the old spreadsheet and based on Gail’s current pace, it isn’t possible to catch her. Unless she slips up, the spreadsheet calculations show that I can’t catch her without seriously ramping up my loss which isn’t possible.  She has moved from solid food to shakes so I don’t see her slowing her pace at all.

The office Thanksgiving lunch is the week before Thanksgiving, so I only have a little over two weeks to catch her.

Even if I can’t catch her, I should take the Top Male category for a $100.00 gift card and $80.00. I haven’t given up. In fact, I’m going to push things harder for the last 2 weeks.

The Bike

47 Minutes  – 11.6  Miles

My goal is to get up to 60 minutes by the end of the competition. Once the competition is over I will drop to 3 or 4 rides a week and hopefully keep that up through the end of the year.

The Menu

Breakfast – Angus burger with cheese

Lunch – None

Dinner – Tuna with salad

Snacks – Pistachios, chicken

Calories – 1150

I’m still worried a bit about the carbs in the chicken. I guess I could wash off the sauce but then it wouldn’t taste so good. 😛

Weight Statistics

I need the scale to drop like that chart! What I really need is for the stupid weekly pattern to disappear and stay away for the remainder of the competition.

Daily Loss – .4 of a pound

Total Loss – 13.4 pounds

At least for today, the stupid pattern didn’t rear its ugly head. It sure as shootin better not reappear tomorrow after 11.6 miles on the bike!

Weekend Wrap

I need another day off. Can we push Monday off for 24 hours?  The time change has me sleepy.

On the diet front, I had a solid weekend at the trough. No real cheats. I did decide to up my pistachio limit to 2 packs a day.

The Menu

Continuing my push to find pre-cooked {I’m lazy} food that isn’t overly loaded with sodium, I purchased a pack of the above pictured teriyaki chicken.

I forgot to check the carbs. I should have known better. They are a bit too high in carbs but I can still come close to my daily goal.  I might remove these from the menu if I stall at all.

Breakfast – Angus burger with cheese

Lunch – Chicken

Dinner – Tuna fish and salad

Snacks – Pistachios, Angus burger with cheese

Calories – 1550

Slightly higher than I like, but I was hungry all day. I ate breakfast at 7:30, then both pistachio snacks by 8:30. Then I had my lunch at 9:30 and dinner at 2pm. So by 5pm I was hungry again and I grabbed an extra burger.

The Bike

I jumped on the bike early. I was done before the Saints game. I should have waited to take my aggravation out on the bike.

44 Minutes – 10.7 Miles

I actually thought about another ride this afternoon, but that idea was replaced by a much better one.

Weight Statistics

Daily Loss – .4 pounds

Total Loss -13

I was expecting  the scale to be up this morning because I drank a ton of coffee and water yesterday. I thought I might be a bit dehydrated yesterday so I loaded up. Fortunately the scale went down.

I’m going to be grumpy if the weekly patter continues. Dang scale BETTER not be up tomorrow!

Have a great week.

Happy dieting, see you tomorrow
