The stupid pattern of Monday being my lowest weight re-materialized. I was all the way down to 175.4 on Monday, easily headed for a 3 pound drop. Then I crept back up to 176.6 for no reason. Very frustrating and aggravating with Rich closing in on me in the Office Competition.


I was all set to post last night but I was so tired I forgot what I was doing at the computer so I went to sleep. ๐Ÿ˜›

Angry Tuesday!

The Contest

I was only able to drop 1.6 pounds this week on the office scale. That should be decent but another Herculean effort by Rich propelled him almost ahead of me. A mere .13% separates us now.ย  He dropped ANOTHER 3 pounds.

The Top 5

21.6 10.79%

25.2 10.66%

16.0 6.63%

16.8 6.61%

8.8 6.55%

I might lose my perch at the top next week!

Richย  has a commanding lead in the total weight loss and I have a very slim total % loss. I’m doomed. I don’t know how he has pulled out back to back 3 pound loses but if he has another one next week it is all over except for the crying.

I thought I had my effort cranked about as high as I could go but it looks like I will have to crank the intensity to the seldom used 11.

LE used his free pass and Jess didn’t weigh in. And then there were two. I do not want second place. I’ll have to hide under my desk after all the good-natured smack talk I’ve been doing.

11 here I come. 14 days left cranked at 11. I have a feeling the Grumpy Man is going to be very Grumpy for the next 14 days.

The Bike

No clothes hanging on my bike. ๐Ÿ˜€

I was a bit beat up on Monday so I didn’t ride.

Tuesday – 30 Min lvl03 – 5.95 Milesย  – 143 Calories

Wednesday – 30 Min lvl03 – 6.61 Miles – 141 Calories

Today I raced home from work and hopped on the bike. My legs were wobbly just a few minutes into the workout. I was all prepared to toss in the towel but I was watching Biggest Loser and the contestants were killing themselves to run a 5k so I kept going.

Thursday – 30 Min lvl03 – 7.5 Miles – 149 Calories

My plan was to just ride 30 minutes about 5 days a week for the next two weeks but since I have to crank things to 11, I am going to have to do better than that for the next 14 days. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ


Today’s Menu

Breakfast – Almonds

Lunch – None

Dinner – Pork loin with cheese and salad

Calories – 1000

Calories were a bit light today. I don’t eat breakfast on weigh-in day. Usually I grab a bunch of fruit after the weigh-in but with only 14 days to go I need to stick to Atkins all the way. I can’t risk the big water spike from moving out of ketosis.

Yesterday was poboy day. Piles of hot roast beef, hot sausage, cheeseburger, meatball and muffalettas. The aroma was almost overwhelming. Today I had to sit in a lunch and learn with 10 people chowing down on Italian food.ย  Once that was done the kitchen was loaded up with leftover poboys from Wednesday.ย  And tomorrow is Friday which means I get to pick up 4 dozen donuts on the way to work. ๐Ÿ˜›

14 days. 14 days. 14 days. On the bright side, I am down just about 30 pounds from my re-fattening.

Happy Dieting, have a great weekend, see you soon
