This week has been great.
Everything was perfect on Monday. I walked, ate 3 good meals, 2 good snacks, drank a lot of water, and went swimming.
On Tuesday I installed a phone system in a job site with no air conditioning, which wasn't so bad. It was a cloudy day. I ate a good breakfast, supper, and one snack. Also, I ate lunch with a couple of the guys at the job site. We ate at a little hot dog/burger joint. I had a regular hamburger all-the-way (mustard, ketchup, onion, lettuce, and pickles), baked chips, and an extra large diet coke (I was extremely thirsty and caffeine deprived.) Additionally, throughout the day I drank a lot of water. So, Although I ate a fried burger for lunch, I didn't overdo it. I didn't get a double cheeseburger, large order of fries, nor did I get a sweet tea. I feel Tuesday was a victory.
Today I ate three good meals and one good snack. I didn't walk because of the rain, but I did swim. The swimming is getting easier every time I go. Once I get in a rhythm, I just swim my laps (like Forrest Gump, "I just ran"). The only big no-no today is I didn't drink my water throughout the day. I have drank a few cups tonight, but I've noticed the greatest results (losing weight and feeling good) if I drink a lot of water throughout the day.
Finally, I want to thank Jack Sh*t for getting after me the other day. That really helped when I stepped up to the counter at that burger joint. I did think of the 50 lb challenge but I also thought, "I don't want that Jack Sh*t getting after me again." Thank You
Finally #2, I also want to thank everyone following, reading, and commenting on this blog. I'm amazed at all of the encouragement that everyone gives.
Have a great rest of the week.
