This morning I woke up feeling pretty good about the weigh in. I was hoping for a good number… and all that treadmilling and racquetballing paid off. I lost 3 pounds this week! Legit. I was especially stoked since I was bad 2 days last week. Regardless, I feel good and I think I’ll be able to break 320 soon! So right now I’m at 324.6 which means I’m 83.8 pounds away from my 100 pound goal. This means that my daily point intake is down to 32 points instead of 33. I know it’s just a point but I rely on that little guy a lot. (For those playing at home… I am doing an older WW system. With the new system, I would have something like 44 points which is a lot of food.)
Breakfast: Right after church, walked in to our icebox of a house and changed in to sweats (which are slowly becoming the only pants that fit. My jeans fall off a lot now. I really need to reach that 50 mile goal so I can get some new jeans!) Anyways, I knew lunch was going to take a while so we both had a bowl of cereal. I had Kashi Autumn Wheat with a 1/2 cup of milk which was 4 points. I really need to dedicate more points to milk. I miss it in my diet.
Lunch: Like I just said, lunch was going to take a while because we had Turkey Burgers (hooray for delicious things!) The fries were too crispy because I didn’t cut the potatoes thick enough, but I did remember to add the olive oil unlike last time! For a 9 point meal, it was awesome.
Exercise: This afternoon, Matt and I played some racquetball. Again, I was on the doorstep of winning twice and I couldn’t pull out the W. I don’t know if I have some mental block or something but it has always seemed like anytime something got close, I would crack under the pressure. It’s really annoying because I just kept making simple mistakes like missing the ball on easy shots. I need to work on that. Anyways, that was around 16 exercise points.
Dinner: When Megan first woke up this morning, she prepped and put all the ingredients for Slow-Cook Tuscan Sausage and Bean Soup in the crock pot. So after I got home from the racquetball bloodbath, I got to finally enjoy the soup that was driving my nostrils crazy all day. It was fantastic and perfect for such a cold day! With 2 pieces of bread and 2 bowls of soup it was a 10 point dinner was was totally worth it. Oh, and if my wife couldn’t get any awesome-er, she took these pictures for me to save time. She’s a keeper.
Snack: After our men’s bible study tonight, we went to Moe’s, this sub par burrito place. Although their burritos suck, they have an awesome salsa bar. I ate about a 1/3 of a basket of chips, which was around 6 points (a whole basket, like what comes with chips and queso, is bad… like 750 calories and 40 grams of fat bad.) Instead of eating any queso, I attacked their salsa bar like a Tasmanian Devil on a rotting wombat carcass. 9 cups of salsa later, I was ready to bounce. Then we played football and I ran around and at one point: threw off my shirt… in 40 degree weather. I’m awesome like that.
So for the first day in the new WW bracket I did pretty well. I came to a total of 29 points which works because I might be a little off on the chips. Regardless, a good start to what I hope will be a good week. Speaking of which, does any body have any tips for running on the beach? See ya tomorrow.
