Week of Feb 13 – About that horse…

Feb 13 Monday
Alarm went off but we had 9 extra people in the house and my son was being extra loud so instead of walking on the treadmill I got up with my son and made breakfast for a house full of people. Everyone left by about 1pm as the evacuation order was lifted for Yuba City.
I ended up going to bed at 10pm because I was browning out from being so tired.

Feb 14 Tuesday
314.8
Alarm went off but I decided that sleeping was a better option. Not necessarily lame.. but necessary.

Steak, salad, super loaded potato

Feb 15 Wednesday

Breakfast burrito (potato, egg, cheese, tortilla).

Week of Feb 6 – Back on the horse

Once again into the fray. It’s time to get back onto the horse. Weight has spun up a bit due to diet neglect and too many holidays. Working on getting that back in check. Also at Fearghus’s encouraging I’ve decided it’s silly to own a treadmill and not use it. To that end I am gong to be walking for 30 minutes in the morning and 30 minutes in the evening. This has the added bonus of getting me a shower every AM after the walk.

Feb 6 Monday
1/100 treadmill in the AM and PM. 316.6
Erik had his 3 yr well check at 11am. Fearghus took him. Erik is 90% across the board. Totally healthy.

Dinner was lazy keto chicken (chicken topped with grated cheese, porcini and bacon) and green beans.

Feb 7 Tuesday
2/100 tread mill in the AM. 316.6.
We went to the Danegeld Tor business meeting tonight so I skipped the evening walk.

:( Eating was less than okay (egg burrito, tuna sandwich, 5 candies :(, 6oz ribeye, steamed veggies, potato+fixings, raspberry cheesecake)

Feb 8 Wednesday
3/100 treadmill in the AM and the PM. 316.6.
Speech Therapy for the boy at 11am. Fearghus took him.
Solar system turned on at about 3pm.

I need to get excited about cooking again. My meals are really phoning it in.
:( Eating was less than okay but not horrible (2 soft boiled eggs on toast, 4oz steak burrito with katsup and an apple, meat loaf with mashed potatoes and corn, apple, tortilla with butter and jelly, pretzels).

Feb 9 Thursday
4/100 treadmill in the AM. 316.4

RPG at our house tonight. We ended the current campaign and will be making new characters and then starting Rise of the Runelords

:| Food was not bad.. but the tomato soup is SO GOOD.
2 slices of pb&syrup on toast, PB&J and an apple, 4B’s tomato soup and homemade bread with butter and garlic and cheese.

Feb 10 Friday
6/100 treadmill in the AM. 317.2

Breakfast burrito (1 egg, sausage and cheese on soft taco tortilla),

Feb 11 Saturday
Boo. My alarm did not go off. I reset my alarm to go off on Sunday morning.

Feb 12 Sunday
315.9
Boo. My alarm went off and I ignored it. Lame.
In the late afternoon an evacuation was announced because of Oroville dam. My brother-in-law and sister-in-law and 7 of their grandkids came to stay with us. We got them all settled by 2am.

R2P3D1 – Going all the way

Last Injection Weight (LIW): 276.7
Today’s Weight: 275.6
Today’s change: -1.1
Net change: -1.1

Day 1 “no starch, no sugar”

I officially suck at the “no starch no sugar” thing. I’ll work harder on it tomorrow.

It started when I couldn’t think of what to have for lunch. I was just stuck with my mind running in circles until finally a very naughty voice said “aww fuck it go all the way” and had cereal for lunch. I got better after that. Dinner was fantastically on plan.. but then much later I got that “I just want a bit of something sweet” and eventually I ended up in a very wrong place. It can only get better from here.

Plans for future meals:
– Thai spring rolls with shrimp
– English onion soup (no bread, no cheese)
– BBQ chicken (a href=”http://www.hcgplan.net/recipes/bbq-sauce.html”>Sauce)
– cajun cod baked in a paper package with lemon, celery/asparagus and capers.

Post diet plan:
– Maintain smaller portion sizes.
– Eat breakfast. I think our standard breakfast (egg, toast/tortilla) is fine.
– Make dinners in specific portion sizes. Immediately package up extra portions and put them away.
– Focus on meals that have a bulk of veggies to fill out from the meat portion.
– Keep drinking lots of water.

What I ate:
Breakfast: coffee with stevia, 2 egg omelet with onions and cheese
Lunch: grapenuts with milk
Snack:
Dinner: chicken breasts stuffed with feta, spinach and garlic (fabulous), cranberries, glass of milk
Snack: 3 Dunkun Doughnuts, Vanilla chai latte

Water count: 22oz

R2P2D33 – Ending on a stall

Starting weight: 297.6
Today’s Weight: 276.7
Today’s change: -0-
Net change: -20.9

VLC day 33.
Dosage 160 iu @ 11:30pm yesterday.

Isn’t that just typical. So it turns out today is our last day of injections(yeah). Woke up to a stall. I was hoping to get to 275 but I’ll take it. Almost 21 lbs lost.

That said, today I strayed greatly. I worked in SF today and I was scheduled to give blood. Knowing I was going to give blood I had a egg plus and egg white scramble for breakfast. Then once I got into SF I had a quad affagato (4 shots of espresso over a scoop of vanilla gelato). It was totally decadent and worth it. Then I had a team lunch with a work group. For that I got a sushirrito salad (Green Leaf Lettuce, Julienne Carrots, Namasu Cucumber, Daikon Sprouts, Pepitas, Wasabi Dust
Passion Fruit Miso Dressing). I picked off most of the carrots but Namasu Cucumber is code for sweet pickles and I’m fairly certain the dressing was very very off-plan. It was totally fabulous.

Ok, I got this. Three days of VLCD with no injections.

Daytrip to Golden Rivers Championship. Sadly we were very poorly prepared. I had meant to cook up meatballs but didn’t remember that until ten PM and instead we decided at lunch I’d head off-site and pick up so meat from a nearby Mexican restaurant. The meat was good.. but probably ate too much.. and not sure what all was mixed with it. Meh. Add to that we only had one apple.. and one cucumber was our only remaining vegetables. Meh. I’ve ordered groceries for tomorrow.
