Somehow I managed to lose another 1.8 pounds this last week. I will not go into the details my week, but let me just say I was not exactly the model of weight watching this last week. I will be doing better this week. I spoke with my meeting leader about the motivation issue and she assured me that it is perfectly normal. There is also the thought that letting my body and mind rest for a bit may not be a bad thing. So I am calling last week rest week. Tonight I will be mowing the lawn for a bit of calorie burning fun and then back to the gym tomorrow and then hopefully some kind of workout everyday until I head camping on the second of July.
I also found, or was referred to, turkey brats. I found Honeysuckle White Turkey brats. They were... not great, but not bad. You have to understand. My Aunt and Uncle live in Sheboygan WI. And for those of you not in the know Johnsonville Brats are made in Sheboygan Falls. So there were summers spent in the heart of brat country. My family was bringing home coolers of brats packed in dry ice before you could buy them in the grocery store. So when I bite into a brat looking sausage I expect it to taste like a brat. The turkey brat is not really a substitute for the real deal. That said I will keep trying them as I overcooked them a bit because of my fear of food poisoning. So I will report back on the Turkey Brats, but you might want to give them a shot. Turkey brats weigh in at 4 pts and if memory serves Johnsonville original brats roll with 7 pts. So... There ya go.
