60 Day Challenge - Week 6

Well, the good news is that today is day 3 of my back feeling better so I think I'll try some weights later tonight. I weighed in at 193 this morning. So weight is slowly coming back down after climbing like crazy for a few days in a row. I hate that I'm over 190 though. Obviously, I eat out way too much. This is my biggest problem. Sodas are the other aspect. I was doing OK for awhile when I was more local and I just got food at the fast food places and a bottle of water. But this whole challenge, I've been traveling and getting sodas out of sheer laziness to adjust the order. I need to eat more meals at home. I am considering that I eat breakfast at home on days I travel and skip lunch. That way, I'm only possibly eating out once per day instead of twice since we eat out pretty much every Friday, Saturday, Sunday & Monday. That means I'm eating out 4 days per week and eating dinner at home only 3 nights per week. Not only is bad for weight loss, but it's expensive AF too! 

Day 36: December 6th

For breakfast, I had a banana and two slices of wheat toast with butter. For lunch, my wife brought me home the new Wagyu burger from Arby's along with crinkle fries and a Coke. For dinner, I had two hotdogs from Sam's Club.

I had some really good news today. Besides being my son's birthday, I also had my client run his military fitness test today. We've been working toward this for months now. He had to run a 10:20 for the 1.5 miles among other events. When we started, he was running a 10:45. Today, he passed his test with flying colors and ran a 9:45!

I personally, did not exercise.

Day 37: December 7th

I skipped breakfast. For lunch I went to Chick Fil-a and made good choices. I had the grilled chicken sandwich, fruit cup and a bottle of water. For dinner, I had homemade lasagna & 2 cups of water. I didn't exercise.

Day 38: December 8th

I skipped breakfast. For lunch, I had leftover lasagna, 2 cups of water and a serving of Rum Raisin ice cream. For dinner, I had more pecan encrusted salmon, brussels sprouts and stuffing and 2 cups of water.  I didn't exercise.

Day 39: December 9th

I skipped breakfast, had leftover lasagna for lunch and the Five Guys for dinner. I had the bacon cheeseburger, fries and a chocolate malt. I didn't exercise. 

Day 40: December 10th 

 I had homemade breakfast tacos and a cup of tea for breakfast. We then went for a 4 mile hike. On the way home, we stopped at McDonald's and I got a McRib, medium fries and a medium Coke. For dinner, I had salmon, broccoli and garlic mashed potatoes from Applebees.

Day 41: December 11th

For breakfast, I again made breakfast tacos. I skipped lunch and for dinner I had two steak tacos and a beer. After, I had a cupcake while celebrating my son's birthday (late since he just got home from college).

Day 42: December 12th

This morning I woke up and went for a run! Well, I did a walk/run combination for 1.64 miles. I had to walk 5 or 6 times but at least I got up and tried. My legs felt like let at about 3/4 of a mile. I then had a protein shake for breakfast, a Big Mac, medium fries and a medium Coke for lunch. For dinner, I had a  chicken sandwich from Sonic and water to drink.
