Adventures in the Lone Star State

VLCD Day 5 & 6

Sorry for not posting last night. I don’t know why I didn’t…oh yeah, that’s right, I’m addicted to this new game called Dominion. We called some friends up and played it for a couple of hours. We also played Robo Rally, which is a fun game — a little bit more confusing, though. Good news is that I continue to lose one pound a day. I’m nearly at my pre-Christmas weight!

A few friends from worked asked me today how things are going. For the most part, great. I am feeling well, don’t have any headaches or anything and have seen my waistline trim down. Today, there was this great luncheon at the Petroleum Club where I missed out on some delicious looking cake. Giving up sweets for this diet has not been fun. That’s OK, I’ll get them back soon. I did have to cheat a little bit a lunch because my boss was invited to the luncheon and it was a fixed meal that waiters brought to the table. So, I ate half my salad, some of which had salad dressing. Also, the beef was cooked in a light mushroom sauce, which I also ate. I left some of the meat on the plate because I think it was little more than 3 oz. I imagine the sauce had some butter/oil/fat in it. Oh well, I had to eat something. Fortunately, there were some steam vegetables on the plate as well. We’ll see if I pay for it in the morning.

I do enjoy eating what feels like more veggies & fruits than normal, which is good. I hope to continue that trend after this diet is over. Lastly, Diane and I went to the gym tonight. I rode the bike for a while on a low (level 3) pace. Turns out that I burned 1/5 my calories. I also worked out my abs and did some planks. I wonder if this will be to my detriment. Maybe my body will go into starvation mode. I sure hope not.
