    DAY 12

    Didn't keep up with food today. Spent the day watching football and had a few beers and a few tortilla chips. Wasn't a good PB day, but not exactly terrible. No worries, back on the path tomorrow.

      DAY 12

      Back on the horse today after a few beers and tortilla chips while watching football with my buddies yesterday.

      Can't wait to see what the scale has to say tomorrow morning!

      Breakfast: 3 egg omelet with jalepenos, tomato, onion, cheese and ham.

      Lunch/Supper/Snack: Sort of an odd day today. Made some almond chicken from the PB recipes page and sort of grazed on it off and on. Also had some grilled zucchini and yellow squash.

        DAY 13

        A little disappointed with the scale results today, only 1 lb dropped since last week. Oh well, I realize that the scale number is impacted by a lot of things (hydration level, bowel content, etc.) so I shouldn't fret too much.

        Breakfast: Bacon and eggs! Tomorrow is grocery day thank goodness. I'm out of everything!

        Lunch: Huge salad with leftover almond chicken, green bell, zucchini, tomato, with homemade coconut milk/fish sauce dressing.

        Snack: Can of sardines in olive oil

        Supper: 6 oz. filet mignon with sauteed broccoli and 1/4 cup mashed potatoes.

        Exercise: 20 mile bike ride

          DAY 14

          Breakfast: Zucchini, onion and cheese 3 egg omlette (with a little heavy cream whipped into the eggs).

          Lunch: Grocery shopping at lunch which always leads to odd combinations for the noon meal. Yellowfin sashimi, chicken leg, chicken thigh, leftover ground turkey patty, leftover filet mignon.

          Supper: Birthday party... didn't do too badly: 2x Mich Ultra, 2 meat/veggie skewers, 3x breaded fried chicken wings, 2x Tostitos scoops/salsa.

          Snack: Couple big slabs of whole milk mozzarella cheese. Dang that was good.

            DAY 15

            I really feel like I've settled into a nice groove with PB. Been to a couple of social events and had a few drinks, but no major carb binges. I can definitely feel my clothes getting a bit looser.

            Breakfast: 3x fried eggs and about 6 oz ham steak.

            Lunch: Big spinach salad with 2x boiled eggs, bell pepper, kim chee, 1/2 avocado, tomato, and my newly created avocado/fish-sauce/coconut milk dressing

            Supper/Snacks: Today was a holiday here on Kwajalein, so being at home a lot of the day resulted in odd grazing habits. Between 3:00 p.m. and bedtime I had: 2x baked chicken legs, a few pieces of mozzarella cheese, an impromptu smoothie (mixed frozen fruit, spinach, coconut milk) and some pistachios. Very lazy day, no real exercise other than a very slow bike ride with my 4-year old who is on her first bike with training wheels.

                DAY 17

                    DAY 19

                    Breakfast: 3 egg omelet with ham, peppers, cheese, mushrooms and onion. 5x sausage patties and 3 boiled eggs. Not sure why I ate so much...

                    Snack: Really wasn't hungry for lunch, but I ate significantly in the afternoon. Big bowl of chicken and shrimp soup, some almonds, salt-and-pepper sauteed broccoli. Also had some whipping cream and blueberries.

                    Supper: Didn't really have much of anything... had a friend over for a movie and I think I just lost track of eating. Wow, that's a first.

                      DAY 20

                      Weigh-in: Very shocked to see 207 on the scale this morning, which is 4 lbs down from last week. I figured I had lost a little, but not that much. It's funny, I usually feel weight gone from my shoulder-blade area when I've been at a plateau and start losing again. Now if I can get rid of this little bulge around the middle and some floppiness in the man-boob area.

                      Breakfast: 3x scrambled eggs and bacon

                      Snack: Yummy bunch of dill pickle flavored sunflower seeds ('Bigs' brand dill are way better than David).

                      Lunch: Whipped up some of the BEAT (Bacon, egg, avocado, tomato) salad from the recipe page. This is quickly become my favorite dish. A couple of tablespoons of homemade may would really round it out, but it would push it up over 800 calories for the whole bowl (which I always eat).

                      Snack: Can of kippered herring. My love for canned fish is on part with my co-workers detest for the smell.

                      Supper: Polished off the last of the chicken and shrimp soup along with a couple pieces of baked chicken and some brocolli my wife and kid had for supper. Also had just about half a cup of their mashed potatotes.

                        DAY 21

                        Got my new dehydrator in this week and started my first batch of beef jerky this morning using Mark's recipe. Sure did smell good as I was leaving the house!

                        Breakfast: Bacon and cheese omelet

                        Lunch: Made a couple of the beef sushi rolls from the recipe PDF. Pretty tasty (especially with a little mayo) and very filling.

                        Supper: Wife and kid had a very primal quiche which I had a sizable piece of. Also tried my hand at some of Son of Grok's coconut pancakes, which didn't work out so well as they fell apart very easily. They did taste good, so that's all that matters.

                          DAY 22

                          Breakfast: Bacon wrapped filet from the frozen section. About as good as something like that can be. Pretty tough and it actually had a bone in it (filet?). Fried a couple of eggs in the beef fat and also had the last 2 coconut pancakes from last night.

                          Lunch: Snacked around on some canned herring as I wasn't super hungry for lunch.

                          Supper: Had some leftover quiche, a couple pieces of roast beef with a little mayo... and I know something else, but I forgot. Need to update my journal right after eating.

                          Exercise: 20 mile bike ride after dark
