The scale had me so angry, I didn’t feel like posting on Friday and Saturday. A plateau is one thing but a big spike UP is intolerable.
Friday – Up .7
Saturday – Down .7
I wasn’t the least bit happy with that. Even though I dropped the Friday gain, I was still aggravated. That is 3 straight days without going below my Wednesday weight.
Sunday – Down 1.4
Total Loss – 15.4 pounds
That was a nice drop this morning. I need for it to not only hold but drop even more tomorrow. My only hope for victory is at least 3 per week and I am moving at a slower pace this week than previous weeks.
I thought about taking Friday off again but with less than two weeks to go in the competition, I decided I couldn’t take a break.
Friday – 52 minutes – 12.95 miles
Saturday – 50 minutes – 13.1 miles
Sunday -40 minutes – 10 miles
I was all worn out today. I just about stopped after 5 minutes but I kept plodding around for another 35 minutes. Not bad when I still get 10 miles on a bad day.
Friday – 1500 calories
Saturday – 1400 calories
Breakfast – Angus burger with cheese
Lunch – Tuna salad
Dinner – Angus burger with cheese
Snacks – Pistachios
Sunday – 1400 calories
I thought the extra carbs might be causing the gain and stalls so I have tossed the rest of the Teriyaki chicken into the freezer. I need to cut those carbs as low as possible for the final 10 days. Whatever menu I pick next time I hit the store, I need to watch the carb count. I might have to drop the pistachios.
Happy Dieting, see you tomorrow
