60 Day Challenge - Week 5

This is the start of week 5 and I have gained weight...AGAIN. I started this challenge at 191.0lbs and I'm (as of today, Nov. 22nd) 194.2lbs. I'm seriously pissed. I haven't been active other than some hikes. My back as been really sore. I keep thinking it'll get better, but it's not. I'm also depressed so I'm eating like a frickin' toddler. 

Day 29: November 29th

My weight this morning was 193.8. I skipped breakfast. For lunch I had a McRib, medium fries and a medium Coke. For dinner, I was much better and had Fried Tilapia (2 filets), couscous and lima beans. Water to drink. 

Day 30: November 30th

I woke up this morning and weighed 193.8. I skipped breakfast. I was on the road for work today. For lunch, I had a McDonald's Quarter Pounder w/Cheese, medium fries and medium Coke. For dinner, we made tacos at home,  salad and chips and guacamole from the grocery store.

Day 31: December 1st

This is the last month before the new year. I know I said it a bunch during the 100 Day Challenge and I've been saying it this whole time in the 60 Day Challenge. I have to focus. I'm not running, so I eat crap because I'm depressed. Then, because I'm depressed, I eat even more crap and I continue to not run. It's a vicious cycle. I'm tired of being this weight. I'm tired of my back hurting. I don't know what I did to it, unless it was during one of my weight workouts. Maybe I bent wrong? Arched my back wrong? Who knows. The point is....hurt back or not, I have to be more active and I have to stop eating crap. My 60 Challenge has been a joke so far in regards to progress. I'm really going to try and bring this home and finish the challenge with losing weight so I'm below where I finished the 100 Day Challenge, which was 189.2. My Goal now is to get to 185lbs by December 31st.

I had a banana for breakfast and for lunch I had 3 tacos at a restaurant. One chicken, one pork and one steak. I had a Coke to drink. For dinner I made Jambalaya with shrimp and sausage. I had water to drink but I did have a mini-Coke in the evening watching T.V. 

My back was feeling better so I started to do my weights. I did the bench and some arm curls. By the time I got to the overhead press, my back was really hurting so I stopped. Too much too soon I guess. Going to bed was awful! I was in so much pain.

Day 32: December 2nd 

I had a banana for breakfast. For lunch, I was treated to a Jimmy John's sub at work. I got a regular sized John Wayne which is roast beef. I just had water to drink. For dinner, my wife brought home Chick Fil-a. I had a Coke, large fries and a large Coke. She didn't realize I only get the medium size combo. 

I didn't do any exercise for fear of making my back worse. 

Day 33: December 3rd

 I skipped breakfast. For lunch I had a banana and two pieces of whole wheat toast with butter. There's not much in the house right now.

I did not exercise. My back is still wonky. 

Day 34: December 4th

Today I made a breakfast taco for breakfast. Just a scrambled egg on a tortilla with some salsa and taco sauce. I didn't have any cheese. For lunch I had a whopper with cheese, onion rings and a Coke. For dinner, I had take out from Fatz Cafe. I ordered the one pound of baby back ribs in the Kentucky Bourbon sauce and had rice pilaf for my side. I was supposed to get baked beans too, but they forgot them. I had a mini-Coke after dinner. 

I will add that my back didn't hurt today. So that's a good sign. 

Day 35: December 5th

I skipped breakfast. For lunch, I stopped at a McDonald's and got the two cheeseburger meal, medium fries and a Coke. I was traveling for work again today. For dinner, I had Popeye's. I had the chicken sandwich, medium fries and a Coke. 

No exercise but this is day two of my back not bothering me. Maybe tomorrow I'll ease into some light weights and see how it goes.
