At any rate, the 179.0 is VERY good news because that 1.5 pound loss is staying. I'll lose some more weight today (although somewhat artificially) because I have a three hour bike ride, track running, and (maybe) swimming in store today. My goal today is to get in the necessary 5,000+ calories with something healthy. On the surface, that's definitely a gold-plated problem (i.e., eating that much). But for someone like me - who has such a close tie between horrible food and reward - it's a lot more difficult than it sounds.
Yesterday, I did something for the first time (maybe ever): went to a movie and didn't have anything other than ice tea (no massively salted buttered popcord and no large Diet Coke). WOW. Jill and I went out and had small custard cones afterwards, but I wasn't craving it (and it was within my caloric range for the day). Simple diet:
- Wheaties FUEL (1 serving)
- Chicken soup (lots of pasta)
- Chicken breast, corn, whole grain rice
- Trail mix
- Small custard cone
