I survived the weekend! My in-laws were in town and when they visit, we go out to eat a lot. Friday we ate at Mama's Daughters. Saturday we ate at Jimmy John's and Fogo de Chao. Sunday was a normal day and yesterday we had a big BBQ for Memorial Day.
Saturday morning, I played basketball. When I got home, I gulped a glass of water with sugar water. Then I ate a half sandwich from Jimmy John's. I knew I was going to have a big dinner that night, so I tried very hard not to eat much during the day. That night, I took a scoop of everything at the buffet at Fogo. Then I had a sample of pretty much every meat. Boy ... was that delicious. I am a steak-lover. Their steak meat was so tender and delicious. It was a very good meal. I didn't feel so full after dinner. That night I had some ice cream while we played Settlers of Catan.
Sunday was a pretty normal day. I just snacked all day long and really didn't eat a meal.
Monday, I played basketball for two hours, came home, drank my sugar water and then mowed the lawn. After that, we all went swimming at the gym. The water was so nice and so cool. It felt great. Then we stopped by Sonic and got some slushies. That filled me up quite a bit. I had to drink a liter of water to drain all the sugar in my system. That night, we cooked a BBQ. I ate two steaks and a cup of potato salad and some corn. Then I polished off the ice cream while we watched some TV.
This morning was judgement day. On Monday while we were at WalMart, I found a scale and weighed myself. One scale read 217 while another read 215. Either way, I knew I gained a few pounds. So I prepared myself for the worst this morning. After playing basketball and showering, I weighed in.
Same time of day, same scale with just the towl.
Difference: 8.1 lbs since May 1, 2006
That's right on schedule. Two pounds a week for the month.
I think the diet is working for me.
