90-Day Challenge: Day 87 – The Reckoning


Okay, I had to get real with myself.  Lately, I have been eating pork bacon for breakfast.  The truth is, I don’t even like pork bacon — it’s just convenient to get at the cafeteria at my job.  But, it’s salty as hell!  So, yesterday, that was it — out with pork bacon.  Also, lunch was mostly fruit.  But, you know, dinner is still the challenge for me.

I worked late and my wife has been commuting to a training class for the last two weeks so, I went and got dinner.  What was for dinner?  RIBS!  I love ribs!

But, alas, I had to take a more sensible approach to dinner.  Instead of the full slab, I ordered myself a half slab, baked potato, baked beans and a dinner roll.  Before I ate the ribs, I had the baked potato (with a little Olivio spread) and the baked beans.  I cut myself off after eating half the ribs and half the dinner roll.  I wasn’t hungry anymore and eating the rest would just be me entering into pure gluttony.  So, they sit in the refrigerator waiting for someone to eat them.

I also made it a point to get a good bit of water in yesterday so that I am not dehydrating myself.  But, I think it’s time to really challenge myself on my water consumption by breaking out the big jug.

The good news in all this is that, I hopped on the scale this morning and was down about 5 lbs since I last weighed in.  It’s nowhere near where I need to be but, it’s a start.  So, the challenge continues.
