Daily Life #502

Going to Kentucky Lake this weekend, going to give RoadTrippers a shot.  To disclose I have several former colleague and friends who work there.  I gave them a half hearted shot when they very first started but quickly gave up.  This should be a true test / review.  I’ll be brutally honest, good or bad as I see it from a usability/reliability/experience.

Snack:  Unsalted Macadamia Nuts

Lunch: Chipotle bowl, lettuce, black beans,  chicken, peppers, onions, tomatoes, vinaigrette dressing

Dinner: Meat loaf, Brussel sprouts, broccoli

Dessert: Carb friendly ice cream

Overall: C. Some observations: The low carb ice cream is killing me.  Need to get it out of the house, because I’m able to rationalize its OK every night.  I’ve been using soy creamer in my coffee, after further research soy is a No No. Also looking into how much is too much with the workouts.

Breakfast: 2 eggs, 1 pieces of turkey sausage, tomatoes

Snack:  Unsalted Macadamia Nuts

Lunch: Bowl of chili, green beans

Dinner: Ribs (some sauce)

Dessert: Carb friendly ice cream

Workout: 1/2 P90X Bicep and Back

Overall: C. Last day of the ice cream.  It’s holding me back.  Did a weigh in this morning before basketball, 225.  That’s a 2 lbs gain from last week and I’ve been pretty good besides the ice cream.  After basketball I was 220 so some of that is water.  Need a great Thursday and Friday to beat last week.

4 Hour Body – 5/9 Weekend Edition

Friday

Breakfast: 2 Chicken Breast

Lunch: Buffalo Chicken Salad, too much ranch

Dinner: Eggs & Sausage

Workout: Swimming with the kids for an hour.

Saturday

Cheat day! Goetta, toast, eggs for breakfast. 2 McDonalds cheeseburgers and a chocolate shake for lunch.  Cheeseburger and french fries for dinner.  3 IPA beers. Did a 1/2 shoulder workout. It was a good day!

Sunday

Breakfast: Left over chicken breast and hamburger (no bun)

Lunch: skipped

Dinner: Sirloin Steak topped with Gorgonzola Cheese Sauce, Broccoli.

Desert: Carb Smart Ice Cream.

Workout: Max Cardio Conditioning

Sunday was interesting, Max Cardio kicked my butt, which I probably needed for my cheat day prior.  I know I had too much dairy in the dinner portion but it was worth the taste.  I took a flyer on the carb smart ice cream.  We’ll see how my body reacts… I’ve been weighing in on Saturdays (broken scale at home), so far, down ~14 lbs in 2 weeks.
