From Cardio to Cholesterol

Wednesday, May 05, 2021

DH does not have a weight problem or a cholesterol problem. He loves the gym. He is my motivator. We got up early and went. I did a great cardio work out today and some resistive exercises. We had to pick something up in Denham Springs. On the way home we stopped at a roadside diner for a bite. It was 10:30 and they weren't serving lunch yet. I told him to order me whatever he gets. (I was in the bathroom when the waitress took the order). When my plate came it was a Big Mans Breakfast: 2 eggs, huge homemade biscuit, hashbrowns, bacon, grits and 2 huge pancakes. Oh my! Well I couldn't resist the biscuit. It was about 400 calories of heaven. I ate the bacon and an egg. I took the side of grits, and one egg to go for my breakfast tomorrow. I also took the 2 pancakes for him tomorrow. He ate almost all of his. Oh well- why he stays slim is beyond me. He hates grits. The next time we go to that restaurant, I am going to order one egg and 2 pieces of bacon. I will eat his grits. That way I stay within the confines of my calorie range. Needless to say- I had a very light dinner and no snacks. Do I feel guilty, remorseful? Not one bit but I won't make that mistake again. Tomorrow is another day and I will start with my whole grain and protein. LOL. emoticon emoticon I must emphasize that NO he is not trying to sabotage my efforts. I said I'll have what you have and that is what I got LOL!

    It sounds like your husband has a high metabolism. I love grits! Your breakfast sounded yummy. Smart to take some of it home for another meal & great planning for your next visit!

    That was a funny story! I love breakfast! I am glad you just enjoyed it and then learned from it and will do it differently tomorrow.

    Breakfast foods are the highest calorie carriers! My Granddaughters had their parents take their father and me to a breakfast buffet. It was great and I ate. I had just started SP and hadn't tracked much of my food. I tracked most of what I ate but when I got into 3 days ahead I stopped tracking. I LOVE biscuits and gravy and the chipped beef on toast in the Army was great too. LOVE eggs every way, grits hash-browns. Pancakes, waffles, bacon, sausage, ham and if I am eating at Crackerbarrel blackberry cobber.

    That is a little dangerous to do that. But sometimes leftovers are better than the first time!
