Starting weight on 1/1/17: 356 lbs.
Last week's weight on 3/05/2017: 320.5 lbs.
This week's weight on 3/12/2017: 319.5 lbs.
Finally hit the "3-teens" this week.... barely. It's frustrating, but a loss is a loss. This is what the week looked like:
Monday Morning: Thrive vanilla shake w/banana
Workout: Treadmill – 36 minutes – 1.63 miles – 274 calories.
Post-Workout: 2 gluten-free pancakes w/strawberry spread.
Lunch: 1 serving of mandarin oranges and deli peppercorn turkey on gluten-free toast w/olive oil mayo.
Dinner: Leftover chicken & rice soup w/gluten free crackers.
Tuesday Morning: Thrive vanilla shake w/banana
Workout: Barbell Upright Row: 8 x 30 lbs., 8 x 30 lbs., 10 x 40 lbs., 5 x 50 lbs.
Dinner: Reid and I headed to Bankers Life Fieldhouse to watch WWE Smackdown Live and stopped at Stacked Pickle on the way. We had an app of fried pickles with ranch. They’re good, but I got “pickled out” rather quickly. For dinner, I had a bacon & bleu burger, bun-less with lettuce & tomato, and a side of mixed veggies.
Late Night: Reid was hungry again, so we ran through McDonalds. Bad mistake. I had a cheeseburger and a few of his fries, and it tasted like garbage. I was actually still kinda hungry when we got home, and had some of Courtney’s leftover gluten-free chicken alfredo from Cheesecake Factory.
Wednesday Morning: Thrive chocolate shake
Workout: Treadmill: 36 minutes – 1.6 miles – 290 calories
Post-Workout: 1 serving of turkey sausage snack bites.
Lunch: Salad with cherry tomatoes, a serving of Hidden Valley Ranch, and a side of Boar’s Head olive loaf deli meat.
Dinner: Gluten-free Meatloaf and steamed broccoli. I’m not typically a meatloaf fan, but this was quite good for something different!
Thursday Morning: Thrive Vanilla shake w/scoop of PB2
Workout: Treadmill: 36 minutes – 1.71 miles – 287 calories.
Lunch: Salad w/cherry tomatoes, a serving of Hidden Valley Ranch, and a side of Boar’s Head olive loaf deli meat.
Dinner: Leftover meatloaf w/Green Giant riced cauliflower veggie medley.
Friday Morning: Thrive chocolate shake w/scoop of PB2
Workout: Barbell Rows: 8 x 60 lbs., 8 x 50 lbs., 10 x 40 lbs., 12 x 30 lbs.
Post-Workout: a serving of mini turkey sausage bites.
Lunch: A porky Unwich from Jimmy John’s. If you’re not familiar with it, and Unwich is a sandwich, but wrapped in lettuce.
Dinner: 6 slices of gluten-free pizza (medium) from Noble Roman’s.
Late Night: a couple of servings of cashews.
Saturday Morning: Thrive Chocolate shake.
Workout: Leg Press: 10 x 255 lbs., 12 x 345 lbs., 15 x 435 lbs., 20 x 535 lbs.
Post-Workout: Nature Valley Peanut Butter Crunch Bar
Lunch: 2 slices of leftover gluten-free pizza.
Dinner: We splurged and went to Ruth Chris. Had a wedge salad with bacon, blue cheese, and ranch dressing. Also had a 14oz New York strip, and split a side of mushrooms with Courtney. These people sitting next to us insisted a try a piece of their deep fried asparagus. It was good, but I think that deep fried junk did a number on my stomach. Bleh.
Sunday Morning: Thrive Chocolate shake
Lunch: Courtney made scrambled eggs and a broccoli slaw cooked with a little olive oil. With ketchup on top, it was similar to hash browns. It really was!
Afternoon: A serving of Planter’s heart-healthy mixed nuts and a couple of tablespoons of JIF Simply Life peanut butter.
Dinner: BBQ pulled pork (no bun) and sweet potato hash browns.
Evening: Half a can of Pepsi. For some reason, I really just had a craving for a Pepsi, but a half can in, I wasn’t really feeling it.
All and all, not a bad week. I was excited to reach the 3-teens, but a bit bummed that I only dropped 1 pound. It’s possible I’m not eating enough, but at the same time, it’s hard for me to eat every 3-4 hours. I really think the workouts have slowed things down a bit. I’m going to keep fighting though and not get discouraged!
Have a good week, and thanks for reading!
