Week Eight AND.....

Despite my own sabotage attempts I weighed in at 217 lbs this morning. My original goal was 215 lbs by April 4th, but I am adjusting the goal to 205 lbs. It is nice to adjust the weight loss goal downwards!!! Later.

New Polar cs200cad cyclocompute and shorter stem, Easton EA70. With upgrades complete, for now, i took her for a short ride. it was 45 degrees in Chicagoland, but it felt like freakin 25 with that wind. seven miles, one chaing drop, but all in all i am happy.

i re-weighed myself this morning and i was 218.5 lbs, so it looks like it's official! i don't like to weigh in multiple times, but glad i did.

My 05 Trek 1000 has gotten a face lift. New 105 shifters, FD, RD, Ultegra Cassatte, and SRAM 9spd Chain. I have done the unthinkable and upgraded an entry level road bike!! I should be ashamed, but uh, I am not. I can't stop, maybe wheels next, or something. Later.

Can We Have A Number Please?

why, yes you may. how does 218 suit you? that is freakin right blog world! the little magic scale has me at 218 pounds this morning. i checked it three times. lets scroll down, then back up, and do some math................you got it, 5 pounds lost this past week...........again...............down, up..............for a grand total of 18 pounds since 01/01/06. thank you and have a nice day.

wait, while i am excited about this number i think it may be a bit off? why you say. well, 5 pounds in one week is a lot. i did some type of cardio 5 out of 7 days last week. including running, elliptical machine, and dog walking. i may weigh in tomorrow just to verify this number. i lost weight this week, but think 3 pounds is more accurate??? who am i to argue with the scale??

and yes i still watch TV, or TiVo. survivor, AI5, my name is earl, scrubs, the shield, is what i am down too. looking forward to the new amazing race and what not, but i am just so obsessed with this weight thing and changing my life and blah blah blah. i am out. later.

Hello Gym........

how have you been? it's been too long my friend. i sound like a county song? the local YMCA is brand spanking new and open for business AND ten minutes from my house. Of course, i am its newest member. it is amazing to me how just eating better can improve fitness. the proof is in the pudding, man i like pudding......it was 32 minutes on the elliptical machine which resulted in 2.83 miles and 535 calories burnt. it felt so good i tackled the stairmaster for 10 minutes on my way out the door. all this and it aint even noon!!

hey, anyone know where my sitemeter went? it seems to have dissappeared from the bottom of my page. must find it. it could be lost and lonely.

And in this corner...........

we have 226 lbs. boo boo boo, you suck, we hate you, yeah what he said.

well i didnt expect to lose weight every single week, but it sure has been a nice run down to 225, er, 226 lbs. the breakdown and recap to date:

  • 1/3 = 236 lbs
  • 1/10 = 232 lbs
  • 1/17 = 233 lbs
  • 1/24 = 229 lbs
  • 1/31 = 225.5 lbs
  • 2/6 = 226 lbs

i will take it. the earlier pic is in reference to the fact that i am home alone with Baby J while the wifey works late. before you jump me about the diet, it was regular coffee and not some fancy frapalapachapaslapameinthefacechino. regular plain old black coffee has minimal calories which really makes me happy.

this just in, the superbowl was a super suck fest. could that game have been any worse? no! the refs blew, seattle blew, big ben blew, the bus stalled, that seattle big mouth tightend had catching the ball issues. just a real piece of crap game. however, i did manage to partake in 12 amstel lights and a crockpot of little barbecue weenies. holy crap, no wonder i didnt lose any weight. i am out. later.


Fuel for baby duty. Ha I said duty.

that is all i have heard on the radio for the past two weeks, THE BIG GAME, and every time i do, i am like WTF? really WTF is THE BIG GAME. then i remembered that those punk arse richer beyond belief peeps that run the NFL copyrighted the phase SUPERBOWL. so unless you are a paid sponsor, or become a paid sponsor you can't say SUPERBOWL in any manner that could be construed as a money making statement. you got that? THE BIG GAME!

uh, whatever. so as you know i am hooked on fitday.com and it is helping me kick the ass of fatness. i log exactly what i eat and try to keep my calories under or around 2000. it really has jump started my Cleansing 2006. once i start to level out on the weight loss it will be hello gym, how you doing.

my point is, today i will be taking a break from fitday and the calorie counting starting around 4pm. i have little barbecue weenies, miller lites, chips and salsa, cheese and crackers, veggies and spicy ranch dip, and THE BIG GAME. it's a must. i love football and all that is THE BIG GAME. the commercials, the hype, the 8 hour pregame shows, man i dig it all. so let there be no diet from 4pm on, and go BEARS! Da Bears 29 Steelers 3. later.
