Well here we are, my first full week of 30 by 30. I think I’ve done OK, but I could do better. Let’s go to the tale of the tape shall we?
STARTING WEIGHT: 237 lbs
CURRENT WEIGHT: 234 lbs
WEIGHT LOSS TO DATE: -3 lbs
CHEST: 43.5 inches
WAIST: 47 inches
HIPS: 48 inches
So I lost 3 lbs this week, which is OK. I was hoping for a little better. The good news is I went running four times this week and jogged a total of 7.5 miles. From Monday to yesterday I already cut more than a minute off my mile time so I’m excited about that. However, I didn’t make it to the gym once. I don’t know why but while I have no problem running until i can’t breathe anymore, I just hate the gym so much that I can’t work up the resolve to go right now. I’ll try to work on that this week.
Food-wise I’m doing well. I’ve cut down on my portions and a lot of unhealthy snacking. I didn’t have fast food once all week and I brown bagged it for lunch everyday. I slipped a little bit with my mother-in-law’s birthday and my friend’s birthday party for his 1-year-old, but I won’t have those temptations this week.
The food part is the worst thing about this. I tend to eat all the time throughout the day. So by the end of the night I’m STARVING but I know I shouldn’t eat before bed. In turn, it makes me a grumpy bastard. Especially since MJ has been tasked with being the slave driver and cracking the whip on me when I start to cave. I appreciate her help, but when she tosses me an apple instead of letting me eat a Devil Dog I want to strangle her!
In other news, Cape Cod Gal has offered to take me to a yoga class. She says it’s to help me in my quest to lose weight, but I think she just wants to see the hilarity that will be my fat ass trying to twist itself into ungodly positions. I’m not sure if I’ll take her up on it, but if I do it’ll definitely be a blog entry.
So, to keep me motivated and to sicken the rest of the Internet, here’s my weekly dose of shame in the form of wifebeater pictures.
