Losing track

Posted 8 years, 1 month ago at 11:24 pm. 2 comments

I really am getting confused these days.  No, it’s not my old age, even though I’m not really that old, but when I say the number out loud it sounds kind of old.  Anyway, I didn’t post yesterday for yesterday, I posted yesterday for the day before.  So that means that this post is for yesterday, then I need to do another post for today.  Got it?  I don’t, so I hope I get this right.  I mean, correct.  Whatever, I just need to let you fine two or five people know what I’ve been doing to achieve my goal, whatever that may be.  At this point, my goal is to not fall asleep during workouts.

So, yesterday.  Yes.  Hmmm.

I think this is what I ate, because I’m not quite sure, but because I’ve been eating pretty much the same things lately, it should be close.

Breakfast…hmm, pretty sure it was

  • 2 hard-boiled eggs
  • low-carb, high-protein yogurt
  • 1 banana
  • 1 cup of coffee (yeah, yeah, you know)


  • 1 apple
  • 1/4 cup roasted almonds
  • 1 Diet Dr. Pepper


  • the usual fajita chicken salad over spinach with light Caesar dressing
  • celery with peanut butter (or maybe I had that with my snack and had the apple for lunch…)


  • baked chicken with cheese and mango salsa
  • 1 pear
  • 1 small bite of chocolate chip cookie thing since I haven’t had anything like that for a while
  • water

I know this wasn’t a lot, but don’t worry because I supplemented it with lots of water.  I know I need to throw in some more healthy calories here and there, so any suggestions are welcome.

As far as yesterday’s workout went, it was the same as Monday’s, and the last pair of exercises — the bicycle kicks and damn planks left me hurting.  That’s it, now to quickly blog about today…

  1. I’m thinking you need some variety!!! Both your meals and your work-outs. You need to be able to do this for the long-run, so you can stay the ripped geek!! Otherwise, you’ll get where you want to go and then start slipping back.

    Keep up the great work!!


  2. Hey Rob,

    I know both my meals and workout sound very boring and repetitive, and they are, much like myself. :-) I’m following a 16-week workout program (I’ll post the link later when I can find it) to get me in shape, and once I’m there I’ll add the variety that I know I need to keep going, like trail running and different kinds of body weight and regular weight exercises that I enjoy.

    As far as diet goes, I wanted to get rid of the crap I was eating, and since I’m not very disciplined when it comes to eating variety, and since these days I often have to eat at my desk because I don’t have much time, I buy a bunch of food each Monday and eat that throughout the week. It’s fast, it’s easy, and I don’t have to think about my intake as much.

    So what am I trying to say? You’re right, I definitely need variety, and I’ll start adding stuff into my diet next week when work slows down a bit and I feel that I’ve jump-started my body into the right direction. And after 16 weeks, I’ll start doing more exciting things than just body weight and intervals or whatever the program has in store for me. :-)

    And again, thanks for following and commenting, I really appreciate it.

    Oh, how does beer factor into weight loss? I’m trying to work that one back in, pronto!
