Day 164: Chorizo and eggs and success at Max and Erma’s

Total weight loss: 25 1/2 pounds

Yogurt for breakfast.

Almonds for morning snack.

Lunch: I took the last piece of shawarma pizza to reheat for lunch. Somehow 3 other pieces disappeared from the fridge. Rick had a craving.

Brandon had some leftover chorizo and eggs which he donated to the cause. They were pretty good. I used to have chorizo and eggs in a tortilla for a delicious breakfast at my old friend Joan’s. I haven’t had that in 20 years. I think I’ll have to make some this weekend. Rick actually bought me some chorizo a while back and it’s in the freezer.

Trivia was at Max and Erma’s last night. If you recall, last week’s trivia at Applebees was a no-carb travesty. I had a margarita and tortilla chips. This was followed by last Sunday’s 4 pound ¬†weight gain. SOOOO, I planned ahead and found that there is such an item as a “burger stack” on their low carb menu! Unfortunately, the waiter knew nothing about this option nor this menu, so I had to navigate the regular menu.

I chose a burger with buffalo mayo celery slaw on it (sans bun). I substituted broccoli for my fries. I was pretty damned proud of myself. It was just as good, if not better, than last week’s dinner. I eat dinner out alot and I’m always happy when I can find something low carb and satisfying.
