Oh yeah, this
Well, I proved that I could lose almost 10 lbs in a week. Bottomed out around 198 on my home scale two weeks ago... and since then I totally regressed. My schedule is crazy mixed up for the next week, what with getting a new job and quitting my current one. I'm back at 204 now, so that's no good. Don't see me correcting that this week; I'm off to MA tomorrow through Monday, as a friend is getting married. Expecting a lot of eating... doh! Also some beach time, though (assuming it's still warm enough; we're still hitting the 90s here in FL, but MA can get down into the 60s in September).
Been a month and a half since my last check-in, and as said, life has been crazy. However, I'm finally moved into my new apartment, settled in my new job, and getting into a routine. The routine so far is:
Every day: Breakfast of 2 large eggs (140 calories), 2 pieces of toast (80 calories), a piece of cheese (50 calories), some deli meat (usually about 30-40 calories), and some sriracha for a kick (10 calories). So that's around 300 calories for breakfast. Lunch is some soup; 200-400 calories depending on the type. Dinner varies; Mondays and Fridays I tend to visit my friends, who make a really tasty (and relatively healthy) South Beach dinner; so usually 300-400 calories. If I'm at home, I'll make myself some sandwiches (400 calories for 2) and maybe popcorn (100 calories).
Weekends go a little bit differently, but unless I'm drinking or going out, I tend to keep my calories in line. Sadly, I tend to go out at least once a weekend, so that's 6 good days and 1 bad
I've also restarted part of the P90X; trying to do "Ab Ripper X" three times a week. The first week KILLED me; the second was a lot easier and I managed all three days. This week, well, I'm sick. So hopefully I'll start on Wednesday
I also am trying to lift weights a couple nights a week; having pretty good success with that. I've had a lot of success with walking several miles every weekday; it's just under 2 miles into work, and I walk for half an hour during my lunch break. So 5-6 miles each day. That makes me feel awesome, frankly.
So, despite the last month and a half being topsy-turvy, on Saturday I weighed in at 197 on a Publix industrial-grade scale. And that was with all my clothing and other items on. So I think I'm doing all right... not great, but all right. Hoping to settle down for the next month until Turkey Day; my goal is to be sub-190 by then.
