I’ve been on a bit of roll lately. I’ve had a lot of good days this week. And it felt good at church this morning when I had some people comment on the fact that I seemed less large. (And they had been reading the blog which it made it a double bonus.)
For breakfast, I had my requisite Fiber One bar. Duh. And then I hustled home from church to get ready for tennis. Mentally, I was prepared to play at 1pm … get a ton of steps and cardio in, and basically earn some bad decisions today. But Atlanta is the new Seattle and it rains every day. Today was a washout, and that threw me off my game all day. One bad thing led to more bad decisions and I feel like I dumped all of my progress in the pooper with one bad day.
Lunch was a pile of crap I pulled out of the fridge. One slice of yesterday’s pizza; some leftover pulled pork; a boatload of BBQ chips … sigh. And then I sat on the couch doing nothing for what seemed like another 7 or 8 hours. I rallied in time to go out and celebrate my nephew’s birthday.
Originally, he had chosen Longhorn for dinner, and I was pumped about that. You can escape that place with a filet and salad for about 600-700 calories. And then it was changed to my nemesis … Mexican. Yeah: tacos + chips + queso + rice & beans. No bueno. More sighs …
And now for the beer
Tonight, I had a Variant Brewing Moon Cloud. It’s a lighter IPA. Very smooth and nicely balanced. And then the keg floated, and so I switched over to Scofflaw Basement. Much like CC Tropicalia from yesterday, it’s a great fallback option when I find myself confronted by a not so varied tap list. A good beer night after a bad food choice day.
But tomorrow is a new day. And I hope that tennis match can be rescheduled!
