Pre weigh in blabber and some eggs?

Ahhhh a whole week down in this new "goal" that I have set fourth for myself, will I be down the 2.26 pounds that I need to be in order to stay on track? will I fall short? surpass the goal? honestly I don't know because the weight has been toying with me on a daily basis all week. If going off of this mornings weight I should make that 2.26 pound mark but yesterday I was lower than this and the day before higher so I don't know what to expect for the weigh in tomorrow morning. Have I done my part? absolutely I would say yes I have, My calories have been perfect other than going over a bit yesterday, hydration has been right where it should be and I have been to the gym every day this week so if going off of that I should be where I need to be but only tomorrows scale reading shall tell.

My intake for Wednesday was a little high coming in at 1890 total calories because of an upset stomach right before bed which I drank 8oz of 1% milk in an attempt to settle it but its not much over at any rate. I started my day off with a HUGE scrambled egg plate which held me over pretty good as I didn't feel hunger until almost dinner time!

What I started with

This is the end product, and of course I had hot green tea with it.

Here is a look at the whole menu from Wednesday.

My day today will follow suit with what I have been doing, I will be at the gym at some point today where I will do at least 30 minutes of cardio followed by 45 to 60 minutes of weight lifting and probably some kind of light cardio to cool down. My intake will not exceed 1700 calories and I will drink at least a gallon and a half of fluids, more than likely more than that even. The scale will whisper softly into my ear tomorrow morning and whatever it says shall be posted here no matter what it says and I will update the goal tracker thingy that I put on the side bar.

Any way that its cut my life has completely changed from how I was living it just over two and a half years ago, I can honestly say that I have done more physical activities in those same years than I had done in the 7 years prior to starting down this path to better health. Won't you join me in living a healthier life? if you are on the fence about making the choice to better your life by losing some weight and or getting healthier I say swing that leg over and hop on down because the longer that you wait the longer it will take for you to get there.

That concludes this episode of as the fat guy turns, now get up off of your ass and do something about that fat on your bones.

As Ever


  1. I'm with you Tony, 110%. Do you feel as if you eating and exercising are normal parts of your life now. I am still new to this and I feel like I need to force myself to exercise rather than it happen instinctively.

  2. Bubba, 100% yes diet and exercise as it is now is just how I roll now a days. If I miss out on a day where I was suppose to workout (which is almost every day) it almost ruins my day! most times I end up doing some quick calisthenics to get something into my day even if a full on workout couldn't be had.

    As Ever

  3. Tony,
    I found your blog after I read about you on AOL. Just wanted to say thanks for the well thought out posts. You are a big inspiration to me and many others!

  4. Zeusmeatball,

    I noticed you drink alot of green tea. Do you drink it mostly hot or cold? I drink a minimum of a gallon of water per day and I've been wanting to add a little something extra to my fluid intake and I think green tea would hit the spot. What brand do you drink? I assume you drink it unsweet?

  5. I drink it both ways, more times than not I drink it cold though. I brew my own from tea bags (usually Arizona brand) or I use whats called gunpowder tea which is just dried leaves not in a bag. I drink hot tea straight up or with a slice of orange in it, and my cold tea is lightly sweetened with splenda usually.

    As Ever

  6. Quick question, I see one of your staples is Deli Thin for 100 calories, what are those? I guess I could google it though. Still enjoying your blog very much, you are inspiring.
