Weekly Weight Lost: 2.8 Lbs.
Reflecting on the Week
This is a little late, as I weighed in on Thursday but I got a bit caught up with some other projects I am working on. What can I say? 2.8 lbs! That’s what. It’s a great loss considering the week I had last week. All in all it was a good week, because guess what…I made my number one goal for January. What was that goal you ask? Well, it was to consistently eat right and exercise for the entire 31 days of the month. Why? So that I can ingrain the habit into my thick skull.
I am happy to report that I have successfully done so. Now, decisions are way easier for me, more easy then they have ever been. With that said, look at the chart below…doesn’t it look good?
Reflecting on my Workouts
Workouts this week started off good, but then something bad happened. Something really bad. I pulled my triceps muscle. Earlier in the week we went to Clearwater Beach were we ran up this steep, sandy hill. I haven’t felt the burn in my lungs and throat like that in many years. It hurt, but felt good. My wife is a beast. She did it twice, by twice I mean she ran 10 hills, then I did 10, then she did 10 more. She is really taking to the circuit, high intensity training I put her through periodically. I then went for a walk the next day and came home to do some push ups.
That’s when the pull occurred. I was on push up number four when I felt a tear and my arm got warm. It was scary. I thought I tore it. My buddy tore his chest a couple years ago. Turns out I was just freaking out and it was simply a pull. That left me not able to do any push or pull work with my upper body for the entire week. Last night I tried doing some slow push ups to test it, but I’m not 100% so I need to chillax on that until next week. Hopefully I will be fine by then.
The rest of the week I did no exercise.
Reflecting on my Nutrition
No exercise besides hills on one day and a walk? Yep. Guess what? Muata is right when he says that it’s all about eating at this stage. He knows his stuff, plus he has been where I am. He lost mad weight and maintains it. Congrats on that news by the way Mu!
So, how did I eat? I ate great. I beat ice cream again (Israel 3, Ice cream 2). I made some great choices when confronted with major temptations. Salads, fruits, and veggies are my friends. I still eat bread but with control. My eating is on point! I’m no joke. The major component of my meals is protein. Chicken, tuna, meat…whatever. As long as I have protein and some veggies, I’m good. I also came up with this cool breakfast idea. Wanna hear it? Okay… here goes.
Fat Man Unleashed’s Peanut Butter, Banana Hot Dog Recipe
It’s a banana and peanut butter on wheat hot dog.
1. Take slice of wheat bread and spread some peanut butter on it.
2. Peel a small banana and place it on the bread diagonally.
3. Then roll the bread around it and enjoy.
It’s delicious! It’s a great snack packed with decent calories to fuel ya! Wash it down with a small cup of chocolate milk after a workout.
Note: Just make sure you don’t use any of the salmonella-recalled peanut butter out there.
Tonight is the Super Bowl, which is at half time right now. I predict the Cardinals will win. Cross those fingas! I took my monthly weight loss photos today as well, which will be posted soon. Real soon. I am not 100% pleased. It’s going to take some time for me to be happy with how I look naked. YIKES!
So, that’s about it for me. How was your week?
Hasta la vista! Peace.
