Jeeze, I blew my diet tonight!
 
I grilled tonight and ate a 4 pound rare ribeye, a big baked potato with butter (real), and Sour Cream (Also real). I'm stuffed, satisfied and feelin' happy!

But isn't that one of the great compensations for riding a bicycle daily? We get to eat whatever we want.


hmmm.....a big, juicy steak does sound good.

Sir-Loin 08-15-09 06:35 PM

Sounds worth it...um..I mean, Bad Stormcrowe!

Full & fat
 
I to blew it this evening with a huge fish meal and desert at the shore. I will have to make up for it in my weekly training. ECB1

sometimes you just have to spoil yourself.

A successful weightloss regimen includes the awareness that one really needs to indulge once in a while.

I blew mine yesterday, 3 Soft Taco Supremes and a steak quesadilla (sp?) for lunch. Today, right back on it. Only had some ribs and then a bunch of grilled squash and zucchini.

Slow Banshee 08-15-09 07:24 PM

What is it with today? Your not the only one. I really binged tonight also since the wife is out of town. I went to Taco Bell, had 3 tacos and a burrito, then had 4 ears of sweet corn (hey they are in season!). Plan on hitting the road early tomorrow.

BullGatorTitan 08-15-09 07:29 PM

Banshee, I hit Taco Bell yesterday. I rode 43 miles this morning and will be back out for 30 miles tomorrow morning.

turbo2L 08-15-09 07:38 PM

What's wrong with that meal? At least you had protein and complex carbs for the ride the next day!

eshvanu 08-15-09 07:52 PM

Sounds a great dinner to me! I hope you thoroughly enjoyed it. :)

It's ok last night I got into lancaster and tried eating the big pig banana split at son's italian ice. A $15 banana split served in a quart container with 6 bananas a quart of ice cream and topped by a full bottle of whipped cream.

I almost finished it, then failed in a very spectacular manner. You don't want to know.

can I presume about how it ended???

boy I'd like to try that food challenge!!!...

Hill-Pumper 08-15-09 10:54 PM

I am like most here. I think going a good food "bender" every once in a while is a good thing. When I got down below 195 for the first time in years a few weeks ago, I celebrated with a food binge. :D It felt good to just let lose.

kwduffy02 08-15-09 11:26 PM

Today was a good day for food all around it seems, took a ride to a neighboring small town for their annual summer get together, then came back for my towns annual summer get together. So was a day filled with festival foods and finish it off with an ice cream cone filled with home made Butter Pecan.

guybierhaus 08-16-09 08:24 AM

A number of thoughts come to mind with your meal.

Rare rib eye!! What did you use the grill for?

Grill!! With yesterday's and today's 90 degree temps, I'm going no where near a grill.

4 pound rib eye!! That's a lot of meat. Hope that's before grilling and with bone in.

Gee, I wish you invited me over.

Oh well, all the fun and none of the guilt! LOL

Just don't make it a habit unless you want to burn your throat out, and melt the enamel off your teeth lol.

:eek: meat...good....why else are all these four-legged creatures walking around :p No, JK, you being a poor hunter is fine..more for me ;)

Tom Stormcrowe 08-16-09 09:12 AM

I had a small bowl of oatmeal this morning......I'm still full from the steak last night. :p

Neil_B 08-16-09 09:15 AM

Tom, pardon the personal question, but isn't that a large amount of food for a person who had gastric surgery? I thought large meals had to be avoided.

Neil_B 08-16-09 09:40 AM

Touring is the best excuse to indulge. And do I indulge!

Pittsburgh salad (garden salad with fried chicken and french fries), West Newton, PA:

Crab pretzel (pie with lump crab in pretzel dough, topped with grated cheese), Brunswick, MD:

Sno-cone stop, just past Vienna, MD on Rt. 50:

Sweet potatoes, a burger, and a 32 oz "mockarita" at an African-American street festival on Legislative Square in Dover, DE. This is the stop where one of the vendors described me as "the man" for riding my bike so far with my camping gear. Five miles out of Dover I had a second lunch at Subway!

I'm far enough out now that I can eat a large meal, albiet very slowly. I also pay for it by not being hungry at all for a full day after. Needless to say, it doesn't happen very often, I can guarantee ya!

tallstevens 08-16-09 09:58 AM

Wow..that crab pretzel looks sooooo good! We don't see things like that down here in Florida. It's amazing how much food styles change depending on the region you're in.
