Hey, everybody, it's weigh-in day again. Last week, I had astounding success with ten friggin' pounds lost in one single week. How did this week go? Well, first, I've got to do my daily report, then we can get to the results.
For breakfast, ran out of chopped onions, green peppers and mushrooms, so: two eggs, slice of ham, slice of cheese, (oh, and one little piece of sweet and sour chicken left over from the Chinese food the fam had the night before):
Snack #1 - apple, nuts, cheese:
Lunch - leftover steak strips, salad, nuts:
Snack #2 - Mango, cheese, nuts:
Dinner - More steak strips, the remains of my salad, and nuts:
Also, not pictured here, I ate about six saltine crackers when I got home. All the sickies at my house were eating them, so I did too. I should have skipped that though.
So, now, how did the week go? Well, this is what I weighed this morning:
Yeah, that's the same that I weighed on Wednesday of last week. I lost absolutely nothing after this long week of reporting my food to you every day and so forth. So, WTF?
I don't know. I'd be lying if I said this didn't deter me. I feel like Sisyphus rolling the boulder for no purpose whatsoever. It sucks when you try really hard at something and achieve nothing in the end.
It makes me think of my favorite Reel Big Fish song (P.S. - NSFW):
But is it that bad? I knew I wouldn't be losing ten pounds again this week. Often when you have a big week, the next week is a kind of bounce-back week where your results are more closer to realistic expectations.
So, unlike the Reel Big Fish song, I'm not quitting. I won't say, "I don't fucking care anymore," despite the temptation to do so. We'll see how it goes next week. Maybe it'll be a big week again.
Also, I probably need to stop the little cheats. After all, I had this pizza:
And this pizza too:
And this pizza too:
And this cheeseburger:
And this cookie dough:
As well as this cookie:
And more besides that too. I guess I better quit that crap. It all seems little when you only do it once a day, but you add it all up, and it seems like a lot more in the end.
That, and I need to get going on the exercise. I haven't been doing any, and I'm sure it would certainly help. Besides, I'm supposed to do a marathon this year, and if I don't get started, I'm not going to be ready in time.
