Day 175: Monday trivia

Total weight loss: 31 1/2 pounds

Monday morning on a short week…my vacation starts Wednesday. Woohoo!

I had some cherry low carb yogurt for breakfast and some almonds for a midmorning snack.

I’ve been really really hungry lately. The steroids I’ve been taking for my giant bug bite may be to blame. Fortunately, I took the last one yesterday morning, so we’ll see…

I was supposed to meet Rick for lunch, but some Palmerworks business got in the way. He’s got a new client newsletter that keeps growing and growing. I took some time out for 2 beddar cheddars.

Within an hour, I was hungry again. What gives? I ate some more almonds.

After work, I had about an hour for a swim, then I was going to a new restaurant for trivia. I was FAMISHED. I stopped at Wendy’s on the way home and ordered a grilled chicken sandwich, but skipped the bun, of course.

Trivia was at the Penn Grill and Bar in Plymouth. It was crowded, warm, and noisy. Despite being really really hungry again, I ignored all the carby foods on the menu and ordered a grilled chicken salad. I really wanted some deep fried appetizers – any deep fried appetizer, or pizza, or….whatever. I got the salad with bleu cheese. It was just okay.

Got home around 10:30, and I was hungry AGAIN. First, I dropped by the deck and had a Michelob Ultra with Rick, then I ate some tortilla chips with spinach dip. And another donut.

I know, this is crazy. I really really hope it was the steroids that made me do it (or the devil?). I haven’t been off track like this since I started. I do great all day, but fail at night.

Tomorrow is another day.
