Everyone is entitled to a few mistakes. Sometimes when you start a new job, you make real simple mistakes and feel like a complete dope. I have made mistakes on this diet and I’m not afraid to admit it. That being said, I’ve made some DUMB mistakes.
The first one came on sushi day. I grabbed some edamame thinking “Oooo, peas”. After stripping two pods for their ‘peas’ one dropped out onto my plate. At that point I got a good reminder of what a bean looks like. Not just any bean… a soy bean. So, not only did I break the legume rule, I broke the soy rule. *thwack* I felt like an idiot as I tossed the remaining handful into the bin.
The latest one was a REAL doozy. Today we had Kelly’s Roast Beef. So I made myself a salad, plopped some roast beef and some chicken salad on it, tossed the buns in the bin and then made the biggest, dumbest mistake I’ve made since the edamame gaffe… I grabbed a buffalo chicken wrap. I emptied the wrap into my container looking at the delicious tomatoes, lettuce and chicken… that delicious BREADED AND FRIED CHICKEN… which I ate… and I ate all of it. Luckily it was only about one piece. Now, I went on with my day, oblivious to what I had done. It wasn’t until I got home and told my wife what I had did I realize what I had done. I said “Oh yeah, I had this and that and a buffalo chicken wrap, minus the wrap.” She looked at me quizzically. And then it dawned on me… like a hammer hitting an egg. “OH MY GOD!”
“That was REALLY stupid” she said.
I’m feeling like I’m forgetting one of my other mistakes… but I’m drawing a blank here… if I remember, I’ll put it in the comments.
So, what mistakes have you made? And not cheats… real, honest mistakes.
Monday weigh in: 282lbs (-15lbs / ~1 stone) I like the idea of stone weight… it’s very primal.
TUESDAY weigh in: 285lbs… guess that mistake cost me a bit.
