Diet Log - July 9, 2008

Weighed in this morning at 193 pounds, no change from Sunday.

Actually, it's been an up-and-down adventure since that previous post Sunday morning. Later that afternoon, the wife and I had lunch at a Rodrigo's Mexican Restaurant in Temecula. I had me the "carnitas hash", which is carnitas, potatoes, peppers, and eggs, kinda put together. Pretty good when you pour some of the restaurant's salsa on top. Wash it all down with a couple of margaritas, and it makes for a great meal.

And later that same day, we had ice creams at Dairy Queen!

That resulted in me gaining two pounds to 195 the next morning.

Then, Monday afternoon we celebrated my mother-in-law's birthday with lunch at Ritchie's Diner in Murrieta. I don't know if it's possible to "celebrate" a mother-in-law's birthday actually. But, we did have lunch on that occasion. I had their tri-tip salad. Later that night, I posted the review for Buffalo Bills Country Cut - Teriyaki.

That took me down to 194 pounds on Tuesday morning (yesterday).

So I stayed with the beef jerky diet yesterday, and posted reviews for Golden Valley Natural Beef Jerky - Peppered, and for Buffalo Bills Western Cut - Cajun. (I post-dated the Buffalo Bills review for this morning)

That took me down to the 193 pounds for this morning's weigh-in.

And with that, I'm off on a two-day motorcycle ride to Santa Maria and back. A friend and I are doing a scenic ride along the backroads through towns like Santa Paula, Ojai, Santa Barbara, and Solvang, mostly to enjoy the curvy scenic roads that "riding purists" love. The next day we'll head inland through smaller towns like New Cuyama, Pine Mountain Club, and Cuddy Valley. All of these places are filled with great eats.

I'll keep my eye out for some beef jerky.

I wouldn't be surprised if Friday morning I weigh in at 197.

Sidenote: On the left-side of this blog, I changed the "Starting Weight" from 211 to 220. I guess this has been a source of confusion for some people. The "211" represented my weight when I launched this blog. The "220" is what I weighed when I started this diet. I agree the 220 makes more sense. I guess when I launched this blog, the 211 sounded more sensible because it coincided with my first Diet Log of April 25.
