February 10, 2020 – Yup, it was water weight. Yesterday I weighed in at 312. The day before 308.
That was less than a MINOR set back. Barely a hiccup!
February 10, 2020 New Low Point
Having run out of my weekly supply of grilled chicken and salmon, I found some Mahi Mahi frozen (Trader Joe’s). I put in toaster over, still frozen solid with some Zombie Hot Sauce, fresh ground salt and pepper and a bag of frozen pineapple tidbits, also from TJs. Yummy. I at all 16oz of fish and all the pineapple. While not as pretty (hence the lack of #foodporn on instagram) the spicy sweet flavor was perfect.
Next I was walking up the monstrous hill to catch a bus to the club, walking nearly a mile from Port Authority to 53rd and 8th.
While teaching a 3-hour class and hosting a show, I sporadically nibbled on three protein bars. ONE Cinnamon Roll, THINK Lemon Bar and THINK Double Caramel Bliss, all have a low GI, with 0-1 sugar. All three brag 20g protein and less than 8g of fat.
I nearly fell asleep at the club. Exhausted! Finally picking myself up I walked back to the bus, then down the hill.
The whole ride I was anxious. I have no protein at the house. The cravings for a lot of bad choices popped in every time the bus passes a Fast Food joint I have avoided for seven months.
The prevailing thought was to hop in the car, before even going inside the house, to go shopping and maybe even grill.
By the time the bus dropped me off, I was ordering delivery.
Mixed grill kabobs and assorted cold appetizers. Beyti offers the most delishous chicken and lamb. I forgot to substitute salad for rice. The assorted dips included lebne, hummus, baba ganoush, a second eggplant salad, tabouli and a pepper based puree.
The dips were mostly for my wife, but by skipping the amazing homemade bread, more like pizza than traditional pita, I could taste.
Most importantly I made sure to guzzled LOTS of water yesterday. The day before I replaced water with three decaf coffees.
I also made sure to reduce the salt for the day.
As a result I purged six pounds of water from the body.
Forward we March….
