    So today I had

    Breakfast:
    - a 3 egg omelet with salmon with the pan greased in butter

    Lunch
    - a burrito bowl with no rice and beans, just 1/2 cup beef and 1/2 cup chicken, salsa, peppers, lettuce, and hot sauce

    Snack
    - hand full of blueberries and almonds

    Dinner
    - Porter house steak
    - Steamed cauliflower/broccoli mix
    - Mushrooms in butter
    - Fresh garden salad with dijon mustard sauce
    - 1 Glass 1989 French Bordeaux

    And I passed up on my favorite toll house pie!

    I know I should probably have my big meal before 7pm but other than that, how do you guys think I'm doing?

    I'm hovering around the 200 lbs mark at 5'10 and I'm looking to lose about 25 lbs

    I eat a salad every afternoon ( spinach, avocado, peppers, cucumber, tomato, chicken) and for dinner usually a dark green veggie ( spinach, broccoli rabe, or mixed frozen veggies) and meat.

    That looks about perfect, I'd say you've got the right idea. As you go on, you'll naturally gravitate toward fresh, non-processed stuff and end up with things like making your own salsa.

    Are you doing the rest of the blueprint too? I've found that not just the diet but the whole package is making the difference for me in how I feel.

    Went for a 2.25 mile hike after dinner in my new FiveFingers "shoes" (if you want to call them that) at a nice slow hour long pace. According to mapmyrun I burned 565 calories. Feeling a good tired, not just a sleepy tired, more like an end of the day tired. Gonna drink a bunch of water and pass out!

    I have to get me a pair of those ... although my feet are so huge I think I would look ridiculous, I want to try them out. Sounds like you had a good day, give yourself a lot of credit and smile as you hit the pillow tonight. You're winning!

    Looking very good on the menu. I would be a little skeptical of the mapmyrun calorie count, though. Unless you were climbing straight up a mountain, or were carrying your wife on your back, you are unlikely to have burned more than 250-300 calories on your wa
