Wednesday was another great day! The taper is going well. I'm feeling very, very good.
I took a noon bike ride for 7.1 miles, which was easy peasy. After work I fetched groceries then headed home. The hubster & I took a motorcycle ride to eat out. We went to a place with all-you-can-eat chicken buffet & salad bar. Nice: my parents were there. Nicer: dad's buddy gave us a buy-one-get-one-free coupon! That rocked my socks off.
What didn't? The pathetic salad bar: iceberg lettuce; ranch, French, & Italian dressing; creamy cole slaw; vinegar cole slaw; 4 creamy pasta salads. You call that a fucking salad bar?! I was able to eat only the iceberg lettuce and vinegar cole slaw. Where the hell are the vegetables? I was highly disappointed and honestly have zero intention of returning. The chicken buffet was incredible, though: bbq chicken, baked chicken, mashed potatoes, gravy, an amazing-looking stuffing, baked beans, and fresh dinner rolls. But obviously I was only able to take chicken. And probably consumed soy in the bbq sauce and breading. So frustrating.

Again, high on calories, but this week it's okay. Next week, back to cutting intake; but this time, actually doing it.
On the other hand, take a look at this victory: my supper was 736 calories.
Had I eaten whatever I wanted, the way I might have a year ago, it would have looked like this (iceberg w/ French dressing, 2 pasta salads, creamy cole slaw, mashed potatoes, stuffing, baked beans, 1 piece chicken): 1443 calories. IN ONE MEAL.
