My First Week

Aside from my McDonald’s moment last Monday, I had a great week.  I weighed in this morning at 449 pounds.  That is a loss of 9 pounds this week.  Not too shabby.

What I did right is changing my eating and started exercising. Unfortunately, my left leg really tightened up after Wednesday and I have not had a chance to work out since.   My leg does feel better this morning so I am going to do my best to get a good workout in this evening.

 My goals for this week are simple:
  • Keep my caloric intake between 2000-2200 a day
  • Exercise for 30 minutes 5 days
 The weekend was busy and I did not get everything I wanted to done.  did I get a food dehydrator.  I have wanted one for quite some time and I thought that it would be a fun way for my daughter to enjoy some healthy snack alternatives. So today I am going to pick up some fruits at lunch (cherries, apples and bananas) to see what we can do. I figure a handful of apple chips have to be a heck of a lot better than a handful of lays.


  1. Nine pounds! Good job. You're doing great and I love the exercise goal. I don't have a dehydrator so I don't know a whole lot about it. I do know when you make your own dried foods it is a lot better for you. Whole foods are best though.

    Couldn't believe the Saints choked in Seattle. I'm not a huge Pete Carol fan. (OK I toned that down a lot.) Tonight's game should be interesting. Got an opinion?

  2. Damn dude! What a fantastic start!

    Looking forward to seeing how the dehydrator works. I love dried fruit. My friends also made their own beef jerky that was fab.

  3. Way to go! Keep it up, you are going to do great!

  4. yep, you're off to a brilliant start. when injury kicks in, try not to let it damage your motivation. if you've hurt your leg, keep your arms moving with punches or something. good luck!
