New Low Point
1.2 pounds less than 24 hours ago
72lbs since July 1 2019
Breakfast: 10oz NY strip Steak purchased at Trader Joe’s, roasted in toaster oven with a few drops of hot sauce, teriyaki, garlic, salt and pepper. Served with a side of riced cauliflower simply flavored with some drippings from cooking steak. I realized years ago, one of the lowest calorie items on a menu is grilled steak. Red meat gets a bad wrap. The beef is not the problem. The real issue is the salt folks add, or sugar sauces, or worse, the bread, cheese and bacon added in burger form. But a grilled steak, or roasted as long as you trim most of the fat and lose the cooked off juices, beef is a lean protein.
Three protein bars for lunch and snacks –
THINK maple almond with 0 sugars low GI etc
Dinner: Chicken Enchiladas (unfriend corn tortillas) at legit Mexican taco joint…. Spicy green sauce, minimal sprinkled white cheese and sour cream, topped with lettuce and sliced avocado
Skipped the chips & salsa, just one taste of the rice. No beer. No margarita. Just a bottle of water.
Whole Mango for dessert with more water. This place sells sliced mango akin to a street vendor. During the summer I get it with lemon juice and hot pepper powder (similar to the stuff used to rim a bloody Mary). But for winter just the simple sweet. Perfectly ripe!
During Superbowl, no garbage, no alcohol, no wasted calories.
This morning, no regrets.
Walked 2+ miles round trip commuting to comedy club. First half mile ALL up hill.
Do what you always do, get what you always got!
Coming home meant walking in a cold drizzle. I wanted to hail a cab or call an Uber so bad, but I was determined to walk and burn some calories.
Most of the day was spent Teaching/Producing teen comedy class and show. On feet for three hours out of the five.
Today: lots of office time marketing, taxes etc. Plan to hit the pool this morning.
