The third week of the Atkins Diet was mostly at home – just one short roadtrip to go see the University of Maryland men’s basketball beat Illinois in their final home game of the season.
I managed to stay low carb on the trip by eating meats and salads. On the way there, I got a salad with chicken at a Burger King, and while it was pretty low carb (I only used a third of the dressing), it was nasty tasting.
A bowl of wilted lettuce and some sort of chicken pieces.
On the way back, there were a lot of options at the Maryland House rest area, but I was hungry and wanted something quick, so I could get back on the road. Some Boar’s Head cold cuts did the job.
Overall, I lost three pounds for the week, and now I am down 14 since I started. I will be at the SXSW conference over the next couple weeks, so that will be lots of restaurant meals and nights out, so I will need to plan and be disciplined, so I don’t blow this all up.
Slow and steady wins the race.
