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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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. It felt good to just let lose.

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.

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.

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.

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

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



Deep fried cheesecake, Confluence, 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!

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.
