2020 Weight Loss For 20200131
Gah! I forgot to do my Friday weight loss post, after having spent time in NJ the week before. Nevertheless, here’s the update. AFTER I got back from NJ on Saturday, Jan 25, I weighted 316.8. So my six days of carb fun netted me 10.2 pounds. 😅 This past Friday (Jan 31), I clocked in at 308.8 pounds. That’s was a drop of 8 pounds from the previous week, but I was still up 2.2 pounds from before the trip. Basically, for the month of January, my weight was unchanged.
Food Fun: Before the Trip
Originally, the plan was to only have carbs on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday for my NJ trip. However, something caused me to cave on that Monday. Sadly, I have no clue what I ate that Monday, though it may have been Taco Bell. 😅 But because I did cave, I decided, “In for a penny, in for a pound.” As such, when it came to Tuesday, I was going carbs all the way.
However, I had a bit more of a practical approach to Tuesday’s eating. I had a few, Southern Style chicken tenders in the freezer along with two bags of of nearly empty fries (one crinkle cut and one waffle style). So I tossed them into the oven and had a good time, so to speak. But, now those items are gone and won’t return as I won’t buy tenders again. (May buy fries in future…just depends.) I love the tenders, but when one has so few carb meals, I usually fancy something other than frozen tenders.
Food Fun: Wednesday in NJ
For my Wednesday flight to NJ, breakfast came with my first class fare. The choices were either a kale quiche pastry, or a cold, protein platter. I chose the later, which was more like a snack than a proper meal.
That night, I did my usual trip to a local Japanese restaurant. It cost nearly $50 of my company’s money. However, for starters, I scored the white fish tempura appetizer and the “free” edamame. (They don’t serve miso for “free” any more, which was a bummer.) There are jalapeno slices and onion bits in a sweet, pepper sauce under the tempura. Man, I love this so much.
Since I was eating tempura, I decided to get shrimp tempura for my main course. That came with a side of rice. Normally, I would do shrimp and vegetable tempura, but I just wanted shrimp really badly. And I LOVE tempura.
Food Fun: Thursday in NJ
When I got up Thursday morning, I had my usual $25 hotel breakfast. (Yeah, NJ is outrageously expensive.) But it was a breakfast buffet bar, so I made sure to get tons of bacon to go with my eggs and potatoes.
That night was our shindig. No food pics, but the hors d’oeuvre were amazing, especially the pepper jack cheeseburger sliders. I think I ate six of those. The main food was OK. I had prime rib, some veggie-pasta thing, some fingerling potatoes, and something else or other. I don’t really remember. But there was cake, which was OK.
Food Fun: Friday Return Trip
I had breakfast in the hotel again. As before, $25, lots of bacon, but the potatoes where different and somewhat whacked.(No new pics.)
.On the plane, I had lunch, which was some kind of Thai chicken (or so they claimed…it my memory is correct). It was a chicken pasta dish with a weird salad and a role that was kind of like a pretzel. Oh, and carrot cake.
I also had something that Saturday too on the carb front. But again, I don’t remember what it was. My memory sucks at times, especially if I don’t have something to make me remember what it was I ate. 😅
No Carbs Last Weekend
Since I had six days of going nuts on the food, I obviously passed on eating carbs last weekend. I am planning to do carbs this upcoming Friday, though I don’t know what at this point. I’m hoping my weight is below 306, but we’ll see.
