weighing in again, no witty title today.

Another Friday is upon us which means I count my weight for the day into my lost category, I was pleasantly surprised this morning when the scale whispered into my ear and relayed the message that I was down two pounds. the first time I got on the scale it said 421.2, then the second time it was 420.8 and the third time was 421 on the nose so I we shall call it 421 pounds today and thats fine by me. I have made a new commitment to myself to at the very least get my push ups in each and every day, I have been slacking with the exercise and thats gotta stop, and for more than one reason. I do not wish to lose muscle mass and the calisthenics I was doing up until about 3 weeks ago I believe were helping me keep as much muscle as possible while still losing fat, also because I just enjoy the feeling I get after exercising, so I have recommitted myself to the exercise part of this equation.

This liquid cooled Buell 1125R weighs in at 421 lbs, and I have to add this is one beautiful bike.

Stacy Cravens a former Fitness America national champion weighs in at 113 lbs, what I have lost to date

two pounds gone and the menu for Thursday was decent, we made English muffin pizzas at my daughters request using the large muffins, light sauce, 2% mozz cheese and turkey pepperoni, I have to admit they turn out pretty good and are only 120 calories each. I also had to drink some 1% milk throughout the day to fill in some calories as it was a light day, here is the menu for Thursday.

As Ever


  1.'re almost to the teens!! Great news for the week! Yay!

    English muffin pizzas, huh?? Great idea! :D

    Good to hear that you've recommitted yourself to exercising more consistently. The more muscle you can hold onto, the more fat that will melt away, right?? Have a great weekend.

  2. Wow I havent eaten eng. muff pizzas in a long time that sounds good.

  3. You are doing awesome! I am glad I found your site, you have become a great inspiration to me. I am definitely making those pizzas this weekend!

  4. Awesome Tony, I'm so glad you were able to get a loss this week, especially when just about a day ago I think you were stalling at last week's weight! Great idea about promising yourself to at least get in your pushups...I think it will help tremendously, not just physically but mentally, which is so important! Some days I can hardly drag my butt up on the treadmill but I'm always SOOOO glad I did it when I'm done. It makes you feel so healthy and strong and energized when you exercise. Good for you! Have a great weekend !!!
