Thanks, everyone for the comments. It's nice to get feedback on here.
I'm really excited for my trip this weekend. I used to love hiking in my younger days. It's funny how you can just stop doing something that you like for years and not even realize it. I have been looking up NJ an PA trail maps all week and planning in my head all the adventures we're going to have.
I ate well yesterday. For dinner, i basically cleaned out my fridge of everything that was about to go bad and made a stir fry. Chicken, green beans, half a head of cauliflower, half a tomato, part of a red onion and part of a vidalia onion. I also had a borderline avocado that i sliced and threw on top. I made it really spicy w/ some red curry, chili powder, black pepper,jalapeno and garlic. I added about a tb of Polaner All Fruit apricot to give it a touch of sweetness. It was really good for a meal that i made up as I went.
I got a nice workout yesterday trying to get my grass trimmer to start. About 100 pulls each arm and then some shoulder work as I pressed it over my head and threw it across the yard several times. Guess I'll be going to Lowes for a new one since it definately isn't going to start now. Oops.
I like The Hulk Out! It's better than the idiot workout, which my wife is going to call it.
Breakfast: 3 eggs and 4 slices of bacon
Lunch: BAS w/ 2 hard boiled eggs and that imitation crab meat shit
Dinner: steak, half of sweet potato and creamed spinach
No real exercise to speak of, the day just kind of got away from me.
The Hulk out might start sweeping the nation! It's expensive and you get very little results! Infomercial fame here I come!
Good day yesterday. I ate well and after work I took the baby for a good 3 mile walk. Bonus: a vender took me out to lunch at Bertucci's and i got a salad instead of pizza and pasta. I also didn't touch the bread and fantastic looking pesto dip.
Breakfast: protein shake and 2 hard boiled eggs
Lunch: Bertucci's Mediterranean salad w/chicken w/out croutons + cup sausage soup
Dinner: pan fried salmon, broccoli carrots half sweet potato
273.8! Finally cracked the 50lb barrier!
The last few years this has always been my stumbing block. I would get close and have a bad weekend and get totally discouraged. As a reward, I made myself a couple extra strips of bacon for breakfast and went in to work late so I could take the baby for a morning walk. I'm feeling great today! I think i'll start another thread congratulating myself.
No time to rest though, I still have a long way to my goal. It is fantastic though how much easier tying my shoes and bending over to pick something off the floor has become. My birthday is a little over a month away. I think I'm going to kick it into high gear just until then and try to get to 250 by my birthday. I've been doing the slow and steady approach until now,WHICH IS DEFINITELY THE REASON FOR MY SUCCESS. But, as just a short term goal this will give me the push i need to not get complacent. Sometimes, all of the complements can go to your head and start working against you.
51 lbs down Bitches!
