Adventures in the Lone Star State

VLCD 9 & 10

Ah, the weekend has come. With only a few more days left on vlcd, I’m more upbeat. I’m also probably accustomed to the strict regime and it’s bothering me less. Today (Friday), I went to Lucky Strike Lanes for the lunch and bowl special. Even though I’m on a low calorie diet, it doesn’t mean you can’t have fun. I opted for the cheeseburger and asked that they cut out the delicious cheese. I only ate the beef, tomato, onion, and lettuce. Their patties are divine! It has an extremely good flavor to it. I really wished I could have eaten the whole pattie, but it was > 3 oz. As for bowling, I tied for first with a respectable 135.

Saturday brought a different set of adventures. We setoff early in the morning to visit the Forbidden Gardens in Katy. They’re closing to make room for the Grand Parkway. It was a pretty cold morning and there were very few people at the beginning. The site itself is kind of interesting. There’s a replica of the forbidden city and the terracotta warriors. It gave me a nice glimpse of what to expect when I go to China some day. For meals, I had chicken soup and crockpot steak. Both turned out to be excellent, although I put a little too much white pepper in my chicken soup. The last couple of days, my weight has stalled, so I haven’t lost more than 1/2 lb, but that’s OK. I think it’s my body saying that I’m reaching the end of my adventure. We’ll see what tomorrow brings.
