60 Day Challenge - Week Two

It's Election Day! 

My last crazy day hopefully. Typically, the ten days during Canvass are pretty calm. Everything with this election should be wrapped up on November 18th. However, once today is over, I will have no excuses not to run and workout as I plan.

Day 8: November 8th

I skipped breakfast today. I was up at 5 a.m. after working until 10:45 last night. I was home by 11 p.m. but went straight to bed. I had pizza 2 slices of pizza for lunch from Papa John's, and another slice for dinner, courtesy of the county I was assisting. I did not esxercise.

Day 9: November 9th

Woke up this morning totally exhausted! I could have slept all day but it was back to work. For breakfast, I had a piece of toast with butter. For lunch, I had a deli sliced chicken sandwich with mayo on Keto bread, which actually wasn't bad at all. Sometimes, "healthy" breads taste like dry cardboard. For dinner, I made spaghetti and meatballs and had a beer. I did eat 3 Oreos and a couple of pieces of Halloween candy. 

Day 10: November 10th

Woke up this morning more awake but still really tired. I think 3 weeks of late nights and non-stop work just wiped me out. So needless to say, I didn't run. So far, I've only run once during this challenge and that was the first day. However, I did use my weights. I did arm curls, overhead presses and front and side raises. 

Anyway, I skipped breakfast. For lunch I had leftover spaghetti and meatballs. For dinner, we had an Aldi cauliflower crust veggie pizza and a cauliflower crust pepperoni pizza. I had 2 slices of peperoni and 2 slices of veggie. They aren't that big. I have had a lot of chocolate covered donut holes today. Probably about 10. I really need my wife to stop buying snacks. 

Day 11: November 11th

I skipped breakfast this morning and had a McRib combo meal with fries and a medium Coke for lunch. For dinner I had an eight piece sushi deluxe plate from a Japanese restaurant in town. 2 Tuna, 2 salmon, 2 yellowtail and I'm not sure what the other fish was, but it was really good. I didn't exercise.

Day 12: November 12th

I skipped breakfast today. For lunch, I met my daughter and her boyfriend for wings and a beer. For dinner, I had a steak burrito from Chipotle with black beans, white rice, cheese and Guacamole.

For exercise, I did two sets of my weights. 10 x 20 lbs for Curls & overhead presses, and 10 x 5lbs side and front raises. 

Day 13: November 13th

I skipped breakfast and had Popeye's for lunch. I had the chicken sandwich, fries and a Coke plus 4 chocolate beignets. For dinner I had a grilled chicken sandwich from Wendy's. No fries. Cheerwine to drink. 

For exercise today, my wife and I took a short hike around a lake. 1.5 miles give or take. 

Day 14: November 14th

For breakfast, I had two pieces of toast with butter. For lunch I had 2 slices of leftover pizza from last Thursday. Dinner was a grilled chicken sandwich from Chick Fil-a and a bottle of Cheerwine to drink. No exercise today.
