      Sounds like a good day! I caved yesterday and had Pralines and Cream ice cream at lunch and dinner. Oops!

      How are you feeling this far in? How's the weight doing?

        Oh man I caved yesterday too. Weight ballooned a bit this week (only a couple pounds) but manageable to get it back down.

        Day 42/365
        234 lbs

        Blk coffee

        pulled pork, chicken breasts, caesar salad, diet pepsi

        lara bar

        stuffed pepper, chicken w/ broccoli, 2 beers, thin mints

        Didn't have to have those beers/cookies, but what the hell. Still feel good overall and strong. I am now on a mission to go down 10 lbs. I know the slow and steady thing is the way to approach it long term, but it also leads to thinking 80/20 is OK so that weight comes off slowly. Still want to lose the 10 in a good way (still eating, not killing myself with cardio, etc) but I know if I just stay pretty strict, it'll happen in 3 weeks. Once I'm at 224, then I can hit the slow/steady thing again. Really don't have far to go weight loss wise... I'm pretty lean at 215 and wouldn't want to be anything under 205. It's the fat loss I want to step up in.

              Day 45/365
              229.6 lbs

              coffee, ham/egg/blue cheese scramble

              bbq babyback ribs, onion rings, few beers

              carrot cake

              So as has been the pattern, day off = taking some liberties. This is what I want to have stop. I guess I'm making baby steps (no nachos, pizza, super carb heavy entree) but it could have been better. Didn't have to eat onion rings, didn't have to have beer. Certainly didn't have to have carrot cake. Justified it b/c wife is travelling for work next week, then I'll be traveling the week after and our schedules won't match-up for awhile. Kinda our last night out and about for probably a month... so enjoyed a few things with her. Only OK if stick to plan over the next few weeks (i.e. not have an excuse since I'll be eating on my own... not that the excuse is a good one anyway)

              WORKOUT
              bench press - 215x4, 205x5, 185x6
              dips - 9/5/5 (bodyweight)
              couple of sprints/jog

                      Day 49/365

                      Long LONG day of work. Stayed good at lunch and strayed just a bit in the late afternoon. Considering there was a full spread of cakes, cookies, taco bar, chowder, popcorn, etc.... not bad.

                      coffee

                      fajita steak/chicken (no tortillas), side salad

                      caesar chicken wrap, 1 cookie

                      Day 50/365
                      230.2 lbs

                      Actually pleasantly surprised with the weight at 230 after straying a bit each of the past two days. Weird day after a long one yesterday. Had to wake up at 5:30 to drive to airport. Got some sleep, but clock pretty thrown off. Great job to NOT grab a crappy lunch (burger, fries, etc.)

                      Only food today: baby back ribs. Yes I have been a bit obsessed with them lately. Was in costco looking for something, so got a full rack. half for lunch, half for dinner. Sauce does have some sugar, but figured it was better than the alternative. (pizza, sub, burger)

                      Unsure if I can hit the gym tomorrow... definitely Wednesday.

                        230 lbs

                        Fasted through the day until dinner (other than coffee). Another weird day... had to drive someone to airport early (again!) and still felt really tired from a long weekend of work. Finally feel caught up tonight and looking forward to a productive day off... including a visit to the gym!

                        coffee

                        wings

                        big bottle of water (make it more of a habit!)

                          230.6 lbs

                          Having a hell of a time breaking through the barrier at 230, but really happy I'm staying on point for the most part and straying in moderation instead of killing myself in the gym and eating Waay less just to get a number on the scale. Definitely look better... Definitely getting stronger.

                          Having said that, had a few beers again! Haha overall a good day though

                          Coffee, ham/egg/blue cheese scramble

                          Few pieces of pepperoni

                          Steak, broccoli, sweet potato, beers

                          Beast workout:
                          Bench press - 225/205/185
                          Dips - 10/7/6

                          Treadmill: 30 minutes (tabata sprints for 4 mins)
                          Stair climber intervals - 10 mins

                          Playing hoops thurs night. This is the week to break thru!

                              Not a good day. Just one meal, but it was a lot of pizza.

                              Have felt off this week (probably because of bad food!)

                              Need to hit reset button and go to work!
