Day 671: (No) Weigh In Day!


Is something you might have just said after see the title. (If not, it’s okay. No pressure to be confused.)

So I have a big announcement, there has been a change to your regularly scheduled programming.

You see, once upon a time, I started training for a half marathon and other running events. With this new running regiment, I run an epic amount of miles on Saturday mornings which puts my body out of whack (retained water, lactic acid, etc.). Usually, my Sunday has been my rest day, but now it’s on Monday. Since your body needs a day to recuperate from a workout, my weigh in’s are going to be on Tuesdays from now on. A lot of thought went in to this decision and I think it will be a more accurate count of where I’m at in my weight loss. It’s also going to keep a lot more honest through out the week. So enough about that. (For the record, I did weigh in at 235.2 (+2 pounds) this morning.)

Breakfast: This morning I had 2 pieces of toast with a little less than a tablespoon of peanut butter (I ran out in mid scoop. It was sad). 4.5 points.

Lunch: After church, Megan and I decided to go on a little lunch date at Monk’s. My friend Alex and I were going to meet up there last night, but the parking lot is a nightmare when it’s packed so we went to Momo’s instead. Anyway, I did the build a burger and had the vegan garden patty, creamy havarti, jalapenos, hot chipotle BBQ sauce on wheat berry bread along with a side of sweet potato fries. I also downed a bunch of water (and not just because it was so flippin’ hot!) Lunch was about 14 points.

Snack: I had some Kellogg’s Special K Cinnamon Pecan cereal which was about 4 points. 

Dinner: Megan made this the awesome Skinny Taste Flank Steak which was a ridiculous 5 points. It’s so much food!!!!! AAAHHHH DELICIOUS STUFF!!!

Exercise: We went out to the pool and I did 8 minutes of treading exercises and then swam 10 laps. Then, we went home and did planks, ball exercises, weights and burpees during commercials while watching these olympics.

I also had like a half point of sunflower seeds.

So that’s all for today, I got to 28 points which is where I need to be. I felt good about today and I can’t to see what this week will bring. Sorry for no pics, my phone was out of juice around lunch. See ya tomorrow.
