60 Day Challenge - Week 7

Day 43: December 13th

I skipped breakfast. For lunch I had Moe's BBQ. I had the pulled pork platter with baked beans and potato salad. I had a Coke to drink. For dinner, We had homemade Chicken Pot Pie. I had water to drink. I didn't exercise today.

Day 44: December 14th

I was traveling today for work. I skipped breakfast. For lunch, the county I was in brought in Pizza Hut pizza. I had two slices of pepperoni and a slice of cheese. For dinner, I had McDonald's. I got a Quarter Pounder with Cheese, a medium fries, medium Coke and a six count McNuggets with BBQ sauce. I didn't exercise today.

Day 45: December 15th

For breakfast, I had a Sausage McMuffin with egg and cheese, hash brown and an orange juice. For lunch, I had a Wendy's chicken Parm type sandwich with medium fries and a large Coke. I only wanted a medium. For dinner, I was finally back home and had leftover chicken pot pie. While driving, I forgot that I also had a bottle of Coke, an Almond Joy and a bag of peanut M&Ms.

Day 46: December 16th

After weeks of eating out and drinking SO MANY SODAS, I weighed in at 197 lbs today. 197!!! This was just about at where I hit when I was so mad at myself a year or so ago when I was 197.2 and I said enough was enough. And here I am again. This isn't a 60 day challenge to get more fit. All it's been is "how much crap can I eat". 

I am so frustrated with myself but it's a good experiment. I have been struggling with feeling sad. I've been feeling stressed and even overwhelmed at times with work. I've been traveling a lot so I'm on the road. I get home and I think I'll run or I'll workout, but I'm just so damn tired. In the morning, I think, let me run or workout now before the craziness starts...but it's cold, or it's raining, or I'm tired. It's just been one excuse after another. 

I'd love to just delete all of these weeks of posts for this 60 challenge as well as the last 100 Day Challenge. At least with that one, I did lose some weight. In two weeks, it'll be the end of December. As of now, I've gained 6 lbs during this 60 day challenge. Realistically, the best I can do in the next two weeks is to lose this six pounds and be even with where I began on November 1st. 

I skipped breakfast this morning. I had no appetite after stepping on the scale. For lunch, I had a piece of sourdough toast and a can of sardines (in water, not oil). I also had a protein shake about an hour later. For dinner, we of course got take out because that's what we always do on Friday nights. In fact, my wife and I had a spontaneous date night. We went out for Italian and I had a mushroom risotto with pulled chicken. We had two glasses of wine and we shared a really amazing dessert. It was a donut with cream, sugar and chocolate, which doesn't sound too amazing, but the way it was done was out of this world. 

Before going to bed, I did 10 x 15lb curls and 10 x 15lb overhead presses. My back felt OK. 

Day 47: December 17th 

I had a brunch today which was an english muffin with butter and an onion/cheese quiche. For dinner, I had taco bell which wasn't too bad. I just had 3 hard shell taco Supremes. I did have later at night while watching TV, two mini Cheerwine sodas and about 8 small Christmas cookies.

Before going to bed, I did 15 push ups which were way harder than they should have been. 

Day 48: December 18th

I woke up this morning and weighed in at 195.2. So the weight is starting to come up with some really simple tiny changes. It sure doesn't take much. Consistency is the key for me. 

For brunch, I had a slice of leftover onion/cheese quiche. Shortly after, my wife and I went for a 4.5 mile hike. For dinner, I went to Outback with my stepdaughter. We split Cheese Fries and I also got the Ahi Tuna and an Outback Blonde "Bloke" size beer. 

Day 49: December 19th

This morning I weighed in at 194lbs so feeling good that the weight is coming off. 

I skipped breakfast and for lunch I had a roast beef, muenster cheese sandwich on an onion roll with some horseradish sauce. For dinner, I had a Wendy’s grilled chicken sandwich, a jr. peppermint frosty and a mini-can of cheer wine. 

For exercise, I did 10 x 15lb curls and 10 x 15lb overhead presses.
