Day 589...woah I have been at this a while eh?

Tuesday went well in an all around kind of way, I ate within my 1700 calorie limit, I exercised and I drank more than my share of fluids for the day. My weight last Friday was 332 pounds which was a new low weight and I want to aim for at least a 2 pound loss this week, obviously more would be better but 2 pounds will make me a happy boy so that's where I will point my sights. If I stay within calories, exercise daily and drink my H2O and green tea I believe that I will make that mark barring of course I don't get any sleep this week but that is a controllable variable for the most part so I am not too worried about it.

I have been tracking my food daily once again and posting it here for you to see, to continue that trend here is Tuesdays Menu.

7:15 AM
2 cups honey comb cereal 220
1 cup 1% milk 110

1:15 PM
1 tomato basil wrap 100
5oz grilled chicken 250
lettuce/tomato 30
pickle 5

4:00 PM
banana 105

7:00 PM
2.5 oz Tortillas 350
4oz ground turkey 160
tomato/jalapeno/olives/onion 55
salsa 30
1.5 oz low fat cheddar 120

8:00 PM
2 apples 140

Grand total of 1675 calories and those apples at the end of the day were exactly what I needed after my bike ride to go along with the half gallon of H2O. My bike ride went fine and was typical, which means pedal as hard as I can for 20 minutes up the hills and down the hills, I always feel like I get a workout into my day when I ride that way and I am getting faster as the same route that use to take me 20 minutes now takes me 16 so I will need to add some distance sooner than later. I did have to go alone last night because we did not have a sitter for the kiddos so wify sat out so that I could get a ride in. I drank enough water and green tea yesterday to keep me hydrated for a week! 1 gallon of green tea and more than a gallon and a half of straight H2O, it was just one of those days for me and i figured as long as it was going down that I would keep the pace up.

Over all this week is going great and I need to keep my cardio going all week if I am to see a loss, it would be awesome to hit the 320's by Friday but I will be happy with any loss honestly and like I mentioned am shooting for a 2 pound loss, 330? yeah that would be cool. That's all I got for today so keep on keepin on and all that and remember kids that H2O is in my opinion one of the most important things in a good solid weight loss regimen.

  1. I totally agree about how important water is to losing weight. Way to go on getting in your bike ride and getting faster all the time. Hope you have a great lose on Friday.
