(drink water, eat 3 meals a day)
Weight: 239.4

Thursday went alright.  I don't recall what exactly I ate, just that it was mostly on plan.

Friday was off-plan but was kind of expected.  My oldest daughter's (10) school had a ski day so I went along to chaperone.  I skipped breakfast because I forgot to grab a Slimfast on the way out the door.  Lunch was at the lodge, cheeseburger and fries.  After a long tiring day on the hill, we stopped at a convenience store on the way home and I had a large can of iced tea / lemonade mix along with a small bag of Corn Nuts.  Dinner we just decided to go out and headed to Pizza Hut.  I ended up eating 2 or 3 breadsticks and 3/4 of a P'zone.  I was full and normally would've continued to finish off the P'zone, but stopped and thought about it for a second and just put it back down on the plate (little victories).

Yesterday was fun getting to spend the day with my daughter, teaching her, and watching her learn and progress all in one day. 

Today is back on track as far as food is concerned.

Progress as of today: 30.2 lbs lost so far, only 64.4 lbs to go!

Good job on putting down the bomb before it goes off. I enjoyed teaching my daughter stuff before she became a teen, then suddenly she knew everything and became an expert in it. Have a good day, Pal.

Yesterday was ok.

B - Slimfast

L - half a can of soup (1 serving)

D - very large salad with all the fixings

S - cheese stick

Water intake was low.  When I've got lots of business and I'm stuck in front of the computer all day it's easy to get me water intake in.  However lately things have been slower so I've been working on gutting and remodeling the basement at the wife's request.  It means that I've been getting some exercise in, but water intake has been less.

Last night took the family to christian skate night at the local roller rink.  I'm thinking of making it a weekly thing.  I know the kids would love it and it's more fun for me than just walking or some other repetetive exercise.

OhioRaven on 03/05/2013:
You go, Boy ! Rollerskating with the fam. Tell me, do they still play disco in those roller rinks ?


Puddles on 03/05/2013:
I did so much rollerskating as a teenager. I would be scare of falling now and breaking something at my age. Thing don't mend as well and as fast once you get older. But I have wonderful memories of those youthful days. lol

Great job keeping active! It is difficult when you're busy to drink water. I try to drink 1-2 cups when i first get up then every time i pee throughout the day.

Weight: 241.0

Yesterday went alright.

B - Slimfast

L - went out to mexican restaurant - fluffy taco, fat alberto (deep fried puffy taco), little rice & beans, chips & salsa

D - spaghetti w/meat sauce, cheesy garlic bread

Water intake a little low (usual for weekends).

Took my two daughters to Home Depot for the kids workshop (1st Saturday of every month).  They got to build a little wooden race car which they both enjoyed.  Later the race cars were nowhere to be seen, but my youngest daughter (7yrs) wore the Home Depot orange apron all day long, although her mother informed her that she wasn't allowed to sleep in it.

Friday nights and all day Saturday are usually the days that I have a harder time watching what I eat.  Sundays I feel more motivated to regulate what I eat, since Monday morning is my weigh-in.

Progress as of today: 28.6 lbs lost so far, only 66 lbs to go!

OhioRaven on 03/03/2013:

Puddles on 03/03/2013:

S - a few olives

I haven't posted much this past week, but things have been going ok on the diet front, I've just been busy with life.  I've been doing to basement remodeling and the past few days have been framing and sheetrock.  My body is sore and I'm feeling tired even though I just woke up from a full night's sleep.  I've only got a little more sheetrock to hange before getting started on mudding/taping.  Ideally I should get it done today, but I might just take the day off from physical labor.  We'll see how the day goes. 

While dieting has been going decent lately, recently I've found myself thinking about all the foods I'd rather be eating.

I haven't incorporated any exercise into the routine yet and have only focused on the food side of the equation.  I don't mind doing physical things, I just hate the tedious repetitive nature of most indoor exercise.  I've decided to give it a go anyways and will give an indoor gym a trial run starting this next week.  Will probably just use a treadmill / eliptical and see how it goes.
