You gotta read this!. . . not really, but I think you should anyways.

Tomorrow I will be weighing in and I am anxious to get on the scale in the morning, This week I have done my part and I am expecting a decent loss. I weighed in at 339.6 lat Friday and my goal for the week was to drop 4 pounds, will I get there? to be found out in the am I suppose and if I manage to hit that four pound drop it will reinforce that hard work does in fact pay off. The plan is to head to the gym this afternoon again and get in the same workout that I did on Tuesday but I may add some light weight lifting just to get a feel for some of the machines. I have always used free weights but there is something about trying out the machines that is interesting me so I do believe I will be giving them a whirl.

My menu from Wednesday was right on coming in at 1700 calories on the nose but I did nothing in the way of exercise, it just did not work out that way yesterday but no worries because everything else was pretty much exactly where I need it to be. I did drink slightly less than normal but that's also ok because of the lack of exercise, 1.25 gallons of green tea and a diet coke while out at Subway is all that I drank all day, have a look at the menu from Wednesday.

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

11:00 AM
2 slices whole wheat bread 140
1 T peanut butter 95
1 T strawberry preserves 35

1:30 PM
2 oranges 170

6:30 PM
1 foot long turkey subway 560
1 bag sun chips 200

8:30 PM
2 oranges 170

Not too bad a day other than the bag of sun chips with my subway and since it fit into my calories I am not worried about it.

Something that I have been meaning to do but since I had not been all that consistent with my posts just sort of let it slip is to update my blogroll list. I have some of you on my blogroll already but not all of you that follow along with me and I wanted to add anyone that would like to be included in the blogroll on the left sidebar, so if you want your blog listed there leave me a comment in this post and I will update the list with your blog link.

That is the end of another mind blowing post from yours truly and I weigh in tomorrow so make sure you check back to see how I did this week! hopefully the trips to the gym will make a difference and this afternoon know that I will be there beating the fat to a there is a mental image to go with your breakfast.

Until Tomorrow..

As Ever


  1. Well, I'm already on the blogroll but I wanted to say good job with your eating. You really like Honeycombs, huh? I think you'll like the machines at the gym. It's fun to mix up machines and free weights - keeps it interesting.

  2. I'd love to be on the blogroll:

    Funny note, I've noticed like EVERY time you wear a t-shirt in your pics, I have the same one. It's amazing how little difference there is in selection accross the country at Causal Male (if you want a shirt that isn't plastered with a brand of whiskey, a shitty rock band, or a giant BIG DOG)
