12/19/2015 - Blast from the Past - DAY 6

Greetings all,

Here’s my next installment of “Blast from the Past” or…….do you have a Pet Rock? OK, be nice I am always looking for new material and I think that I was a little lacking the moment. Never fear! I am sure that I will noodle will come up with………..oops noodle is not a good word on a Zero Carb Forum. Sorry! See, I am struggling here……. (New and improved material on my next post). Drum roll please and the gentleman with the large hooked cane will escort me off the stage……………….

Original Stardate: 7/5/2010 
Today was a lazy day for me. My office was closed for the holiday (observance). I ended up running a few of errands (turning in my tux, shopping at Sam's, inspection sticker for car, and going to the local grocery store where I found some marked down beef). The Highlight of my day was to grill four (4) large Rib eyes and eight (8) smaller flat blade chuck steaks. I was able to spend a couple of hours at the waterway just relaxing with DW.

Wedding reception "temptations":

Garden Salad

Steak,Chicken, Green Beans and Mashed Potatoes


Just the "Balanced" food left

and last but not least "Wedding Cake"

I did not have any cravings for the carbs that were offered to me. I had to turn away six wait staff that kept trying to give me a salad and four wait staff that were trying to give me cake. I took photos of my DW Salad and Cake. All in all I had a real good time, I danced a lot, and drank tons of water.

I hope everyone that celebrates The 4th of July had a great time. I basically stayed home and rested from all the dancing. I think I will put up my lamp shade for a while. I guess when your 46 (like me) and don't cut the rug much, it can wear you down.

I will post some "changes" on Monday the 5th.

First, I must have been really tired not to realize that I was actually posting on the 5th and that the changes would occur on the 6th.  Next there I go again with the “lots of water”. I probably drank a ton of water from being out of breath and sweating to death from all the dancing. Weighing a ton did not help. Again, I have to say that I was proud of myself for being so new to (ZC) and resisting temptation. All free and being shoved in my face. Everyone else was stuffing their face and I just smile and said “No Thank You” over and over and over again. Last but not least look at the picture of me. Jeez………"The Jowls of Death" Ha!!!

Now that was an interesting day. Twice within a few days I was faced with making critical decisions that would shape my future. First at the restaurant a couple of days earlier and then at the wedding. Had I been on any other diet I would have caved in on both occasions. I simply did not want to throw away the progress I was making and the confidence I that I was beginning to feel. Another step in the right direction. How easy it would have been to throw it all away for a cheap sugar rush.

Have a Healthy Day my Family and Friends. What is your Health Worth? Mine is everything to me. We win Battles everyday yet the War still rages on. Battle On!!!
