The Parsons Perspective
Off Week
March 27, 2017

Starting weight on 1/01/2017: 356 lbs.

Last week's weight on 3/18/2017: 316.5 lbs.

This week's weight on 3/25/2017: 313 lbs.

Shockingly, I dropped 3.5 lbs. this week. I say shockingly, because let's start with last Sunday. I was doing overhead should presses (which I despise), and managed to jack up my shoulder. 8 days later, and my mobility is probably 85%. Fast forward to later in the week. I started to not feel well on Thursday. Went to bed early, and decided to not go to work on Friday, opting instead to get so much needed sleep for the majority of the day. When I don't feel well, it's much easier to eat out of whack a little bit.

Monday morning: Thrive vanilla shake w/banana.

Upright Barbell Rows: 8 x 50 lbs., 10 x 40 lbs., 12 x 30 lbs.

Thursday Morning: Thrive chocolate shake.

Workout: Treadmill: 36 minutes - 1.86 miles - 310 calories. I woke up late that morning and had just enough time to in some treadmill time.

Lunch: I forgot to grab a side of deli meat with my salad, so decided to grab a breakfast burrito from a local diner and just dug out the good stuff, not eating the actual tortilla, which is fine because it seemed weird anyway.

Dinner: Double burger without bun, with typical burger fixings, and sweet potato waffle fries.


Friday Morning: Woke up at 9 and ate a salad with deli ham and Hidden Valley Ranch around 10:00.

Sunday morning: Thrive vanilla shake w/scoop of PB2.

Mid-Morning: Omlette w/sausage, ham, bacon, onions, green peppers and a side of whole grain toast and hash browns.

Dinner: Fiesta chicken w/pinto beans and rice.

So, as you can see, it was a terrible week for me food-wise and workout-wise. Way too many servings of white potatoes this week! My bum shoulder didn't help my workouts a bit! I'm going to chalk up my bad habits last week to not feeling well and my lame shoulder. Hopefully I bounce back this week and can continue the weight loss journey! Thanks for reading and have a great week!
