Sunday, June 1
This was a very good day! I ate well (cooked a nice 3-cheese quiche) and went for a 9-mile bike ride.
Weight at beginning of day: 145.2
Food eaten June 1:
Crust-less Quiche made with extra cheese since I had no other filling besides spinach – cheddar, mozzarella and goat cheese – I sprinkled Italian spices and lots of garlic powder and pepper – it was really good:
I then went grocery shopping – a much needed errand.
With my afternoon coffee, I had an Atkins Bar – Hazelnut flavor – these are SOOOO good. It’s hard to believe they work on a low carb diet. I like to cut them up into bite-sized pieces – it’s more fun that way
After doing some work on my laptop, I did my 9-mile bike loop once it cooled down a bit. I was not out to set any records, and while I was a bit tuckered out during the ride, I really enjoyed being out, breathing hard and sweating!
When I got home, B had grilled the rib-eye steaks that I bought earlier, and we topped them with sautéed shrooms and blue cheese crumbles – we also had steamed broccoli with cheddar cheese sauce as a side dish – plus a Modelo Especial! A meal fit for a king – or at least a newbie “triathlete”! The evening had cooled down and we enjoyed eating outside:
Monday, June 2:
Only 1/2 a smiley face today because I did no training today. But I – kinda – stayed on plan. The only two non-plan items were a small banana (eaten at the height of hungry at work), and a very small tangerine.
I’m not used to taking pictures again, so I totally blew that.
I weighed in at 144.4 lbs.
Food June 2:
Breakfast was a piece of 3-cheese quiche.
Then, the only picture I took – coffee with a packet of Atkins chocolate covered almonds – don’t they look nice on the plate?
Then I got really busy at work, I ate carrots and snap peas with a Greek dip from Trader Joes (just OK) as the day wore on. Then I had the banana and tangerine.
I finally ate another Atkins hazelnut bar – I am pretty sure I should not be eating these as a mainstay!
Once at home after a very long day, I ate left-over taco meat with shredded cheddar cheese, sour cream and shredded lettuce – very tasty – I drank a Modelo Especial as an accompaniment.
Getting home late, unfortunately, provided the perfect excuse not to exercise – I’ll keep trying.
Oh yeah, yesterday I signed up for the Triathlon I always try to do (and bailed out of for the last 3 years) – it’s September 6 - and yes, time marches on and that event WILL come………………………
