Today was the first real test to the whole diet. As it was the weekend and the kids were all home all day, and my son had a sleepover last night, it was an unusual morning and odd to plan. My Saturday started like always with a 3:30am wake-up so I could be at my church, St. Matthew Catholic for Eucharistic Adoration from 4-5am.
Usually, my first beer is at 8:00am, but I didn’t feel right just opening a beer in front of my kids and their friend. So I had to go in the garage and pour it into a coffee tumbler. We did a lot of family stuff including the park.
My wife and I again had date night, and as I had said I would, I ate a normal dinner. Well, normal was ice water, and the grilled chicken and strawberry salad from Longhorn Steakhouse.
I only got to drink 3 beers today, but considering I let myself eat a salad, I figure cutting out 2 beers helps Balance a little and still kept me under 2000 calories. I will say, I am not feeling very good since eating dinner though. My stomach really hurts. Until tomorrow!
