300 followers! and dieting update.

what a journey it's been on blogger. blogging and following and blogging and following. such an adventure! it's paid off, though, as i now have 300 followers after 24 days! huzzah, ya'll. and thank you!

as far as my diet is going, i almost threw up at the grocery store. all of my senses are increased in sensitivity, and the smells of the bakery and meat and some other foul odor i'm guessing was b.o. from other patrons was very overwhelming. but then i just got into the car and was fine. i'm stocked and ready for 2 weeks of no/low carbohydrate dieting, and will be doing an hour of walking and possibly jogging everyday. i realized that i forgot about how much i walked when i went to college (big school), so that was definitely a factor in my weight loss before.

so far today i've had a breakfast wrap with salsa, egg, bacon, low-carb whole wheat tortilla. for dinner i'm having a couple burger patties with cheese and a negligible amount of ketchup.

breakfast
eggs, bacon and low-carb tortillas. i'm pretty sure i have sausage too. cheese sometimes, i really don't need any to enjoy the breakfast wrap.

lunch or dinner
skinless/boneless chicken strips i can bake and put cheese sauce on
ground beef to make burger patties with cheese

beverages
non caffeinated diet 7up and a&w root beer (which i'm hoping i like, i usually get barq's)
diet sierra mist
some raspberry lemonade propel for every other day since it has some sugar in it

desserts/snacks
sugar-free reese's cups
sugar-free jello

i'm hoping i don't get too bored with these foods. i have plenty of different sauces to change flavors without compromising the diet, so i think it should be good.

so here's my status for today:
carbs: 4-6 total for the day (supposed to be under 20).
caffeine: none for 4 days (still have headache)
nicotine: none for 4 days
alcohol: none for 5 days

the scale told me that i lost .6 lbs since yesterday, but i've decided to not weigh myself everyday. the sensible diet should do it's thing well enough that i don't have to. i'm going to weigh myself next tuesday, so right now i started at 195.5 and now weigh 194.9.

hope everyone is having a good weekend! here's some more music i hope you enjoy:


i had this on an old cd in my car and have been listening to it a lot lately.


andy blueman's remix of serenity. i heard this in a mix once and teared up as my arms got all goosepimpley. such a wonderful feeling song. start around 1:55 and keep it going. very progressive, even if you don't like trance all that much.

Just make sure you don't take certain aspirins with your headache. Some OTC painkillers like BC headache powder contain caffeine.

Caffeine withdrawal is the WORST.

Popcorn is also good for a snack when on a diet. Simple paper sandwich bag + popcorn kernels + microwave for 40 seconds = Awesome.. Though I don't know how good it'll be for you if your on a low carb diet.

nukpana said...

interesting read my man! Keep up the good work!

Questions said...

You going to do any exercise to lose weight also? It's all about calories consumed vs. calories burnt. Might as well attack on both sides. It's OK to weigh yourself every day. But don't forget, a litre of water weighs 2.2 pounds. If you weigh yourself in the morning, you'll be lighter as you're less hydrated. Best to look at averages of a longer period of time.

Stuff that matters, stuff that don't said...

Congrats and keep it up on the weight loss front!
