    I experimented w/ zucchini noodles last night. Freaking Awesome! They seem to have a texture like a lo mein noodle more than pasta. These are going to be showing up a lot on my dinner plate.

    285 this morning. That's 40 lbs down! Rolling right along.

    Last night's dinner was awesome! I was home while there was still daylight so I grilled a couple of rib-eye steaks. For sides, I made some mashed cauliflower and grated a sweet potato and made home fries. I used a TB of whole milk yogurt w/ the cauli which really made it creamy and more like potatoes. Lunch was a salad w/ a can of sardines mixed in.

    I've had a good week. Ate well, did a ton of walking and dropped a few lbs.

    I leave tomorrow for a 3 day trip w/ my wife for our anniversary. We'll be spending the weekend in Rehoboth, DE at a little B&B a couple of blocks from the beach. I would rather stay in a hotel where I don't have to interact with strangers, but she seems to like going to these places. I shouldn't have too many diet issues with all of the seafood places down there. The women who runs the inn apparently is a gluten free cook so breakfast won't even be that bad. The weather isn't supposed to be super nice, but low 60's is fine w/ me. It should be a fun trip. This will be the longest stretch my wife has been away from the baby which might be interesting.

    Been a while since I checked in. Eating well and getting some exercise. I've been working a lot lately so my food has started to get kind of boring and redundant. I'm going to add a couple of new recipes this week.

    time to get back to updating this journal. i've been slipping a little bit lately and I have put on a couple of pounds. most of the week i'm good but i've had several weekends in a row with things to do including booze and junk. Also, little things like adding flavored cream to my coffee have been creeping in. I'm just getting a little lax and that's a slippery slope i don't want to go down. Also, my morning walks have become less frequent and by the time i get home, make dinner, and get the baby to sleep it's usually after 9 and I'm exhausted. These are excuses I've used in the past and I'm done using them now.

    Today, I'm rededicating myself. No walk this morning but i will be going after dinner.

    Breakfast: 2 hard boiled eggs, 14 oz coconut milk, 1/2 cup whole milk, one scoop chocolate whey protein powder

    Lunch: BAS w/ chicken 1 hard boiled egg

    Dinner:???? some kind of protein w/ some veggies

    Only about a month until swimming season aka embarrasing fat ass in a bathing suit season. For any Game of Thrones,ASOIAF fans. The words of house Harpua:

    SUMMER IS COMING!

    Hey Harpua, I just wanted to stop by and say hi. I especially loved your post about going to the beach in San Diego, amazing how we can be our own worst enemies! Keep up the good work!

    Thanks, Grokerella and Sugarbare! funny thing about the SD story is that it was almost as hard to write it as it was to do it. La Jolla is definately on my list when I get back but i don't know about baby #2! yikes!
