Don’t touch me right now, because I pretty much hurt all over.

The good news?  I got to repeat Monday’s workout because I do that Monday, Wednesday, and Friday and do the intervals the other days.  Well, except Sunday because apparently that’s the day I get to rest.  So what was on the menu today, you ask?

  • 2 large cups of my patented pussed up coffee (see my other posts for recipe)
  • Egg white omelet with cheese and tomatoes (the tomatoes were a welcome addition)
  • chicken breast & spinach salad with light Caesar dressing
  • black bean and beef chili with a little cheese on top
  • celery with peanut butter (5, I think)
  • 1 Diet Dr. Pepper
  • lots of water (not as much as yesterday, but definitely more than usual)

That’s about it for today.  I don’t have any hilarious anecdotes or inspirational messages, other than the fact that I’ve stuck with this plan for all of three days now.  I would pat myself on the back if I could.

  1. Way to go on the dieting and working out. I’m always good on the working out, but the dieting is very tough for me! I race bicycles, so being lighter makes you faster. That’s my main motivation. I’m 6’3″ and 195 right now. I want to be around 190 by March when the racing season gets going. I’d love to make 185 by mid-summer, but I’m not sure that’s possible. I carry a lot more muscle as a biker than I did as a runner.

    I used to do a lot of duathlons and a few triathlons, so there was an advantage to being over 200lbs. I ended up around 210 and hit a high of 215. It took about a year to make it to 190. Its kind of counter-intuitive, but I lost weight by bringing a lot more food into work, By snacking late in the afternoon, I’m able to eat a regular supper, instead of three helpings of everything.

    Other than weight loss, do you have a race-related goal? I’ve always found that this really motivates me. You need that extra push at night when you’re decided whether to go work-out or sit on the couch and watch TV.

    Keep it up!!

  2. Thanks very much for the comment, Rob, I really appreciate it. I’m finding that your theory of eating a snack in the late afternoon definitely helps things, and I also have a small snack at around 10 or 10:30 every morning when my stomach starts its rumbling. I don’t have any race-related goals right now, other than Warrior Dash on May 22. It involves running, obstacles, free beer, and a ridiculous furry hat with horns. Not exactly a real race, but it would still give me a goal and it looks like a blast. My real goal is just to get rid of this crap around my mid-section and have some semblance of being in great shape.

    Have a great night!
