Keep a Stock of Diet Food on Hand

Weighed in at 156 pounds this morning. Down two pounds from my last report on Friday.

Friday I drank a lot of beer and ate a lot of food, and saw my weight go up to 160. But yesterday I managed to put myself on a diet, and brought it back down to 156. But I think most of that four pound loss was just pissing out much of the beer. Here's what I ate yesterday...

Morning: 1 cup (4oz) Dannon Activia Yogurt (110 calories)
Morning: 1 Thomas' English Muffin, Multi-Grain (100 calories)
Afternoon: 1 can (6oz) Polar albacore tuna in water (210 calories)
Late Afternoon: 3 calcium carbonate tablets (15 calories)
Early Evening: 5 small sticks of celery with hot sauce (10 calories)
Evening: 1 can of V8 Juice (70 calories)
Evening: 1 package (170g) of blackberries (73 calories)

Total: 588 calories

No exercise yesterday.

What really helps to stick to a diet is to make sure you have plenty of diet food to eat. I found in the past week that I was snacking on chips, cookies, and ice cream because I didn't have any low-calorie fresh fruit, fresh vegetables on hand. Had I kept a stock of tomatoes, blackberries, celery, or strawberries, I would have snacked on those. All of those are very low-calorie.

Obviously, we all get into a snacking mood, so it helps to keep the good stuff on hand just to encourage you to stick to the diet.

Today I'm heading out on a motorcycle ride with some guys. We're supposed to finish the day at a food court inside a strip mall. Food courts don't sound all that conducive dieting, but I'll see what I make out of it.
