Weigh in: Week Thirteen
29 August 2006
Last week I was 192.2 pounds, this week I'm 192.0 pounds. Am I discouraged? Not in the least, listen to the week I had.
Tuesday of last week, weigh in day, Eliza and I drove to New Jersey to visit with some family. We at mall food-court food, and Friendly's Ice Cream. Then on the way back from New Jersey, out of sheer desperation, we ate McDonald's. This was the night I became ill from eating fast food for the first time in many weeks.
Wednesday rolled around, and we decided to drive to Allentown to visit her Mother who is doing training down there. We at at a Perkins, and I got a huge breakfast and a cookie! Also, remember that I usually play basketball on Wednesdays - so I missed that and ate instead.
Thursday was semi-normal, but still no basketball. By the way, some of these days Eliza and I did go walking/jogging - training for my goal of running a mile. But I don't burn near as many calories doing that as I do playing basketball.
Friday I did get to shoot some hoops, then we came home and played Pictionary.
Saturday we ate breakfast at a diner, then I ended up running my mile with Chris and James. After that, we played some football (1 on 1 with full time QB). Then, we went to a fair and ate fair food. We had a bloomin' onion (oh my god I love these things), a sausage and pepper hoagie, ice cream, and some funnel cake.
Sunday was our seventh wedding anniversary. Naturally Eliza and I wanted to have a nice dinner out somewhere, and we chose to eat Japanese at a Hibachi. We ate and drank until we thought we couldn't anymore, then went and had dessert at Krispy Kreme Donuts! Hey, when the sign says "fresh hot donuts right now", we go.
So now you are getting the picture why I am not upset, at all, that I managed to maintain my weight this week. This week was definitely not our normal, everyday, routine that we've been successful with. However, now we're back on track, our lives are slowing down a little, and we're ready to start our routines again.
Next week, I'll hit my original goal.
