Where This Meets That
Well, this week was the first of those pesky but inevitable speed bumps.
No matter how many helium balloons I tied around my waist today, I was still up nearly two pounds.
– RIBS: one great thing about a low-carb diet is the abundance of meat you’re free to eat. On Thursday night, I went primal on some fantastic ribs but didn’t think to account for the carbs in the sauce. And they were saucy ribs.
– ALCOHOL: My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful “gift-card” meal at Bonefish Grill on Friday night. My meal was very reasonable, but we split a bottle of wine, and I had a good pint of Sweetwater 420 Pale Ale, as well. A glass of wine a day is no problem, but beer is a killer, with 20-grams of carbs in that pint alone.
So, for this week, no ribs and no alcohol. Should give me a boost this time next week!
Meantime, we picked up another $200 in pledged donations. Thanks again for all who have generously pledged to support this cause.
