Yesterday went alright.

B - Slimfast

L - 4 carnitas (mini pork tacos), rice, chips/salsa

S - cheese stick

D - cheese fries

S - yogurt

The last week of the month is full of meetings and other stuff, which includes going out to eat.  Lunch was mexican and I forgot that we had a board pre-meeting meeting at a mexican restaurant at dinner time.  I didn't feel like mexican again, so I ordered cheese fries which I've been kind of craving.  Went to the gym after the meeting and did 15 minutes elliptical, 30 minutes stationary bike.  Came home and wanted a nice juicy piece of fruit, but all I saw was un-ripe plums.  Ended up having a yogurt.  Water intake was alright.

Yesterday went alright.

B - Slimfast

S - cheese stick

L - grilled ham & cheese melt

D - cheeseburger, breaded okra, pasta salad

S - meal replacement bar

Water intake was alright.  Yesterday I was feeling a little "snacky" and indulged a couple of times.

The kids and wife are off for the next week for spring break.  I wanted to get out of town for a few days, but unfortunately other schedules weren't cooperating.

Non-diet: the Miata work has slowed some due to issues with non-fitting connections.  I'm waiting on a part or two to be shipped.  There is some wiring that needs to be done and hopefully I'll get motivated enough to get it taken care of today.

Have a great day.


OhioRaven on 03/28/2013:
When is the first race ?

graindart on 03/28/2013:
First race is 3-1/2 weeks away - If my exhaust part comes in tomorrow I might be able to get the car running by Easter. I'm installing a new aftermarket programmable ECU (car's brain) so I want to get it running before proceeding with the supercharger install. Ideally I should be able to install the supercharger by the end of next week which would give me 2 weeks to tune and troubleshoot.


supercheese on 03/28/2013:
you have a miata? Beautiful car! My dad works on cars too...when he has time. I know a thing or two since my dad wanted his daughters to learn "non-traditional girly stuff" to up our "awesome levels". Have a good one!


hollybelle on 03/28/2013:
Good work again - diet wise and car wise. Sorry you weren't able to get out of town with family.

Weight: 228.8

Yesterday went alright.

B - Slimfast

L - can of soup and 1/2 cheese sandwich

D - piece of leftover pizza, lemon yogurt

S - small piece of banana bread

Water intake was a little low (usual for weekends).  No gym last night.  I was worn out from working on the Miata - removed some extra weight (cruise control system, egr system), replaced fuel injectors with larger ones, reinstalled transmission.

I'm glad to see the 220's again, it gives me a renewed hope.

Usually enter my day's info in the morning, but kind of bored, so thought I'd enter my Saturday info before going to bed.

Today went alright.

B - Slimfast

L - mac-n-cheese and a couple crescent rolls

D - meatloaf, mashed potatoes, and green beans

Water intake was a little low which is usual for the weekends when I'm not sitting in front of the computer as much.  Went to the gym tonight: 15 minutes elliptical, 30 minutes stationary bike, 35 minutes treadmill (walking).  The treadmill wasn't planned, but I was watching something on tv and decided I wanted to keep watching it so just walked on the treadmill until it was over.

Non-diet: Work on the Miata went a lot better today. Installed front coilovers, front swaybar, and new control arm bushings (front).  Hoping to put the transmission back in tomorrow night.  First race is 28 days away and I'm starting to get a little nervous about getting everything completed in time.

Progress as of today: 38 lbs lost so far, only 56.6 lbs to go!

hollybelle on 03/24/2013:
I have been "craving" meatloaf and mashed potatoes! Good work on doing the treadmill while watching tv! Woo-hoo!


Puddles on 03/24/2013:
Have a great day

(drink water, eat 3 meals a day)
Weight: 231.6

Before I forget again, I went out to Dairy Queen with the family on Thursday evening.  We haven't been in a few months and I thought I'd treat the kids.  I had a small sundae with pineapple and peanuts.  

Yesterday went alright.

B - omelet - eggs, cheese, ham, collard greens, mushrooms

L - can of soup and grilled cheese sandwich (note to self - Campbells all natural tomato basil isn't very good)

D - went out - 2 slices of pizza and 2 or 3 breadsticks

Water intake was alright.  Frustrating day of working on the Miata, part my fault, part the car's.  Took the night off from the gym. 

Progress as of today: 38 lbs lost so far, only 56.6 lbs to go!

Puddles on 03/23/2013:
Relax for a day. Have a good one.

Yesterday went alright.

B - Slimfast

L - soup

D - fried rice w/ extra ham & egg

Water intake was ok.  Went to gym, 15 minutes on elliptical and 30 minutes on stationary bike.  I upped the level on the elliptical 2 days ago and have just barely been able to finish the 15 minutes.....hopefully it becomes easier in a week or two.

Non diet: Miata progress is slow, clutch/flywheel installed, rear coilovers installed, rear differential bushings installed.  Today hoping to get front coilovers and motor mounts changed out.

B - Slimfast

S - a few animal crackers

L - ham & cheese grilled sandwich

D - sloppy joes & pasta

S - banana

Water intake was ok.  Went to the gym and did 15 minutes elliptical and 30 minutes stationary bike.  The elliptical machine was kicking my butt.  When it inclines it becomes almost like a stair stepper.  About 6 minutes in I was ready to quit, but marched on.
