a trail of bacon bits

sleepy Friday morning
The alarm woke me up this morning. A full night's sleep on a week night is a rare treat. I don't particularly like waking in alarm but I suppose the clock would be less successful in its purpose if it were a "gentle suggestion clock" rather than "alarm clock".

I made it to the grocery last night even though I worked a little late. An astronaut chicken is in the fridge and waiting to be broken into a week of meals. I also picked up a special treat for freeday ... pumpkin ice cream! :9 Maybe I should have gotten roasted pecans to sprinkle on top. Pecans are expensive though so it's best that I didn't think of it. I have some graham crackers that I could crush and sprinkle on top instead. Having a freeday once a week makes the other six days of strict diet easy so far. And I thought I had no patience ... I learn more about myself even now.

I brought in a big stack of Stephanie Meyer books for the guy whose desk is next to mine at work. I mentioned that I was planning to take them to Half Price Books this weekend and to my surprise he said "I'll buy them off you". I guess his 12-year-old son is reading Twilight and likes it. I've read each of the novels, then got them on Kindle and have read them again along with watching the movies 3 or 4 times (Cro has teases me when he comes home and I'm watching them again). I did the same with the Being Human BBC series. It's not the vampire/werewolf thing ... it's the being immortal with secret superpowers that appeals to me.

Still 189 today. I like that I'm in the 180's again but will be overjoyed when I see the 170's. I must NEVER allow my weight to creep up again. Words don't ward off regains though. Blogging this experience and what I had to do to fix it is meant to act as a trail of breadcrumbs to keep me on the right path. Breadcrumbs? More like bacon bits, lol.

Today's meals totaled 60 protein (60-90 grams per day is ideal for me) and 10 carbs

65g of ground beef (10 protein)
red beans (3 carbs)

Quest bar (20 protein and 4 carbs)

65g of ground beef (10 protein)
red beans (3 carbs)

bacon (20 protein)


  1. Creepy creepy carb creep!
    Stop it while it's manageable.
    And then kick it to the curb
    by (almost) any means necessary!
    Good on ya!

  2. A trail of bacon bits instead of bread crumbs...cute!
