Day 88: A big fat ZERO

Today’s weight loss: ZERO

Total weight loss: 21.5 pounds   Next weigh-in: Saturday, April 14th

That was disappointing. Was it the wings on Thursday? Am I not consuming enough water? Was it too many alcoholic beverages? I know I’m not eating enough veggies. Is it because I’m not exercising? Is it the almonds?

I’m tired of agonizing over what I could be doing wrong. My clothes are getting looser. That’s a plus. But, man oh man, I would sure love to see more progress when I get on the scale.

So, I’ll just keep keeping on. No alternative.

Yesterday was my numero uno vacation day. We started out eating at a new diner. I ordered the cheese omelet with onions and a side of bacon. It was great! The cheese/onion combination was very “pieorgi-like,” so I asked for a side of sour cream and it was even better. The bacon was also thin and crispy, just the way I like it. I finished my Friday NYT crossword, and declared it a wonderful beginning to my vacation week.

>We were off on lots of errands after that. When we got home, I wasn’t really hungry for lunch, so I had some almonds.

Rick napped, I relaxed and watched some “The Good Wife” episodes. It was nice just hanging out for a couple of hours.

Later in the evening, I joined Rick out on the deck. I wanted to have a vodka/diet drink, but hadn’t eaten much, so I made some ham, cream cheese, and onion pinwheels. You know, the kind mom made in the 60’s. You roll them up, then cut them and they look like little pinwheels…or eyeballs, if you ask me. Anyway, it was something I thought of the other night when trying to find a conveyance to get the cream cheese into my mouth without just eating it out of the package. Apparently, my family members think it’s an odd thing to do.

For dinner (at 9 pm!), I chopped up a bit of the chicken Rick had grilled. I put it in a large low carb flat bread and topped with cheese, onions, salsa, and sour cream. Those are my go-to toppings for just about everything.

Dessert was 2 pieced of 70% chocolate topped with organic peanut butter. I think I went over about 4 carbs.
