Well here I find myself not having posted a blog for a long time.  I have said it over and over again that I need to keep up on this better.  So I will say it again..... I'm going to keep up on this blog and post more often!  I am however trying something new where each week I give myself a goal.  Something that I know I need to do better at or improve upon.  This week's goal, September 10th - 16th, will be to not eat any fast food or drink soda.  Maybe this will help drop some pounds.

239 lbs.

So I think my theory on why I was up two pounds yesterday was correct, or at least thats what I'm telling myself.  I was down two pounds from yesterday!  I felt great this morning and that carried over into today.  I did take tonight off from running and exercise due to not feeling good.  I had one of the worse headache's I have had in a long time.  I blame that on the heat!  On top of that my stomach was rolling and turning every few minutes.  So I figured it was a good idea to take a day off.  Back at it tomorrow!

233 lbs.

I'm not really sure how I gained 2 pounds since yesterday.  I ate decent and did a good 45 minutes of exercise.  If I had to take a guess it might be a result of all the water I drank during my exercising.  I didn't start the exercising till about 9pm and drank a ton of water, so its possible that I still had a ton of extra water in my system this morning.  I'm not worried about it because I feel like I had a good day.  If it keeps going up then I will start to worry.  As for today, I was good again.  I ate good and got a good 45 minutes of exercise in.  

235 lbs.

Another good day today!  I was down one pound from yesterday.  I could have ate better than I did, however I did get out and go running.  I also did all my upper body and core exercises.  So in my eyes today was a huge win!  

233 lbs.

Im back, well at least I hope I am and that I can keep up on this.  I have decided to try a different format.  I think I'm just going to list my weight in some crazy large font and go from there.  After all the weight is the most important thing!  However for this post (since its been a while) I will give a quick run down on how things have been.  Back on July 16th I weighed myself and I was at 239.5 pounds.  This set me over the top and put me back into full diet mode!  I was on a roll and had got down to 234 pounds on the day I left to go back east.  Now I knew being on vacation I would probably come home 10 pounds heavier and based on what I ate I'm shocked that I didn't.  When I got home and got on the scale the next morning I was at 235 pounds.  I don't know if the scale was wrong or if I was seeing things, however I was taking it!  I really wanted to jump back into things full force the next day, however I just didn't have the energy and power since being home.  So I took the rest of the week to get back on Arizona time and adjust to being home.  So that beings me into today, Monday August 14th.  I'm focused, ready to eat good again, exercise daily and most important drop the weight! 

234 lbs.


Day 354

Booyah, another great day for me today!  I think its important for me to post something on a daily basis just because it helps keep me focused.  However I don't want to just write the same thing over and over each day.  So if it's a pretty normal day and I really don't have much to say then I will just keep it short and to the point.  This was the case today.  I did great and stayed focused all day.

My menu today was wheat toast, protein shakes, salad (homemade), grapes, spaghetti and carrots.  Yummy!

So today WAS good day and tomorrow WILL be a good day as well!!

Till tomorrow....


Day 353: 235.5 pounds

I ended my post from yesterday by saying that today was going to be a good day.  So from the minute I work up I knew I had to be strong and that things were going to be different from what I was starting to get used to over the past few months.  The first thing I said after rolling out of bed was "you can do this Bryan, you have done it before and can do it again.  Its going to suck, but you can do it".  This little pep talk worked well and helped me get through the day. 

I was faced with a few challenges, but didn't let any of them get to me.  We have a pantry stocked with just about everything and as much as I wanted to have a few cookies or a handful of chips, I didn't.  I will say that the hardest part was not getting my coffee this morning.  I decided that I need to cut back a bit on the amount of coffee I drink.  So today I went without it and boy did I pay for it.  My head was pounding! 

My eating today was AWESOME!  Wheat toast, protein shakes, salad for both lunch and dinner was my menu today.  The only snack I had was two graham crackers after dinner.  Winner winner chicken dinner!

Oh yeah, my weight this morning was at 235.5 pounds.  Yesterday it was showing 237 pounds and I pigged out big time, so I'm not sure exactly how it was a pound and half less today.  Either way I will take it.

So today WAS good day and tomorrow WILL be a good day as well!!

Till tomorrow....
