My weight is really starting to fall off. I'm now at a new cutting low of 208 pounds. Had a great Saturday at my sister's in Rock Hill, SC. The will power was tested yesterday and I succeeded. I passed up pizza, cake, ice cream, and candy and planned my own meals for the day. Planning my meals out day to day is a big reason for my weight loss success. I've jumped on the weight loss train and I ain't gettin' off for a while!:)
Yesterday was a full day of rest from workouts and a good rest at that. Now it's time to kick up the running mileage again and get back to it. Strength workouts will continue at the normal 4 day a week plan this week. I'm going to make a strong attempt at getting up at the unholy hour of 5:30am and do a 3 mile run...did that sound convincing?:) Will see how it goes! Strength training at lunch and family time in the evening for tomorrow. My pushup challenge is going really well. This afternoon I did my 17 pushups with no problems and I went a head and did 20 crunches as well. Tomorrow will be 18.
My nutrition today was as follows...
8:00 am: 1 Large Banana, 32oz water
10:30am: 1 cup oatmeal, 2tbsp Natural Peanut Butter, 1/4 cup sugar free maple syrup, 32oz water
1:30am: 1 ruby red grapefruit, 32oz water
4:00pm: 1 organic whole wheat wrap, 4oz of boars head turkey, 1 roma tomato, 1/4 cup feta cheese, 1 tbsp organic light balsamic vinaigrette, 1 diet cherry pepsi
6:00pm: 1 organic whole wheat wrap, 4oz of boars head turkey, 1 roma tomato, 1/4 cup feta cheese, 1 tbsp organic light balsamic vinaigrette, 32oz water
8:00pm: 1/2 cup cottage cheese, 2 tbsp smucker's red raspberry sugar free jelly, 32oz water
This calculates to just over 1800 calories for the day. I have to say that turkey wrap I made was really good. So good at 4pm I had it again two hours later.:) I hope all the fathers out there had a great Father's day! I know I did. There was nothing better this morning then getting a homemade father's day card from my 4 year old Gracie! It was awesome when she looked up at me and said...."your the best daddy I've ever had, happy father's day daddy!!!!":) I chuckled and gave her a big kiss and hug! Awesome...just awesome! Have a great Monday morning. - Jason
