2014 Weight Loss, Week 11

Another quick post as I have a very packed schedule today. Regardless, the report on this week’s weight is an unimpressive 316.4, which is a 0.6 pound drop from last week. I actually thought I might weigh more than that since it wasn’t a good week, what with free donuts, free breakfast sandwiches, a free Three Musketeers candy bar, and some Cadbury Eggs.  There was even a day when I violated the Carb Addicts Diet rules. Ugh. *_*

Continuing my “tasty Japanese foods” segment of late, as usual, our group made a trip to Sakura House in Denver. We got Crystal Rolls as an appetizer, but I forgot to get a picture of it apparently. I got Katsudon, and actually remembered to get a picture of it.

I love Katsodon.  Next time we go, I have to try the bento lunch, which a couple of the guys got and loved.

Next week is going to be a bad week due to everything on my very busy schedule. I’m going to try to mitigate the damage, but we’ll see how things turn out.

2014 Weight Loss, Week 10

This isn’t going to be a long post as my incredibly busy week, complete with not enough sleep, ends. It was not a good eating week, and as a result, this week’s scales reported a 1.6 pound increase to 317 pounds. This was a direct result of stress eating early in the week. Though I followed the Carb Addicts Diet rules (save for an accidental fail), way too many calories were taken in.  If I’d remained sensible, which is what I started returning to on Wednesday, I’d have been OK.

Speaking of Wednesday, our group at work had our outing to Sakura House for tasty Japanese food.  I got the Katsu Curry Rice (breaded, boneless pork cutlet, rice, and Japanese curry sauce), which came with miso soup and a salad. Very tasty, and not heavy on calories.

Well, not that my site move from DreamHost to KnownHost is over, I’m hoping to get back on track with the weight loss. Stress eating is going to be a real danger for sure, especially as my job becomes more stressful over the next few months.

2014 Weight Loss, Week 9

This post is somewhat delayed due to the moving of my domain to a new hosting company. Also, I had to get a new cable so I can grab some pictures off the phone.  Regardless, when I weighed in this morning, I had a somewhat disappointing result of 315.4 pounds, which is only a 0.6 pound drop off of last week’s 316 pounds.

I did have a couple of failures.  The first happened early in the week, where I had way, way, way more than a few Chips Ahoy! Chewy Gooey Chocofudge chocolate chip cookies. ^_^;

If that had been my load failure, I would have been OK. Unfortunately, some friends and went to Woody’s Tavern on Thursday evening after work and got the all you can eat pizza/salad/soup bar. I made sure to have a low carb meal for lunch (which is when I usually have carbs) so that I could eat my carb meal that evening. It was good, but alas, I ended up eating way more than I should have. ^_^;

This didn’t hurt me, but on Saturday, I got a Tokyo Joe’s large chicken bowl with yellow curry sauce (had a coupon to buy one, get one free). While this is not authentic Japanese food, it is pretty good for a rice bowl

Speaking of Japanese food, Wednesday, a group of us went to Sakura House, which is the Japanese restaurant I’ve mentioned previously.  I almost forgot to take photos, but I did manage to take a shot of the karage and korokke appetizers we ordered as well as the tempura set (tempura shrimp and tempura veggies with a bowl of udon). I’d eaten half of my tempura before I remembered I hadn’t taken the shot. ^_^;

Anyway, I have to try not to eat so much this week so that I can have more weight loss rather than minimal weight loss.
