Day 2 of my new push

I've been doing well for 2 days now. I feel like I should be getting a chip. No, not a potato chip, a poker chip. Only I'm not really a fan of 12 step programs, so I don't see that happening.

Breakfast: an "instant breakfast" bar, featuring trail mix and probably too much sugar. A fruit leather thing which I think is 100% fruit.
Lunch: a terraki salmon sandwich, with green salad. Didn't eat most of the boring white bun. Beer (India pale ale). I would have eaten at Subway again, but I was expecting to meet someone for lunch.
Supper: leftover potato things from yesterday. Beer. A tiny bit of humos and pita.
Exercise: 1 hour of cardio and physio stuff.

OK, so maybe I didn't actually earn a chip for today. But I did exercise, and I paid attention to the diet, even if I didn't follow it perfectly.

For a few weeks I planned to exericse 6 days a week, and actually exercised 3 or 4. I planned to faithfully follow my diet, and instead I mostly followed my diet. And I lost about 1 or 2 pounds per week.

Then I went on a trip, and didn't exercise while traveling. And I didn't have much healthy eating choices at the greasy spoon cafes, so I had too many french fries. And when I came back, exercise didn't seem all that important.

So now I am back to 187 lbs, when according to my schedule I should be under 180 by now. I'm at least 3 weeks behind schedule, and actually heavier than before my trip.


brunch: veggie burger, salad (dry)
supper: hummus, pita, rice, veggies. 8 corn chips.
exercise: 1 hour cycling.
Weight: 187

breakfast: toast and PB
lunch: 12" salad sandwich
supper: perhogies. pyroghies. phryogies. pasta-wrapped-mashed-potato-things, with bacon and onions. red wine. fruit for desert.
exercise: no, I actually forgot. :-(

So, I didn't do perfectly on the diet and exercise plan, but I did some exercise, and exercised some moderation on food, and managed to lose a couple of pounds.

I'll be on vacation for the next couple of weeks, riding my motorcycle around the mid-west desert and west coast. I'll probably be eating lots of fried diner food, and I won't get much exercise, other than the calories I burn keeping the rubber down and the handlebars up.
