So Sunday morning I step on the scale and it reads 251. I thought this must be wrong! That’s WAY lower than what I was expecting. I was shifting all over the place and the reading wasn’t staying consistent at all – that must be why. I’ll try again. So, I carefully make sure my feet are placed like I was foot modeling for the scale. I made sure just to stand still and evenly across the scale… and I waited. WTF! Now it says 249!… bullshit! I step off and calm down – no way! – okay, back to the scale. I carefully step back on and make sure that I perform the best example of standing in the history of mankind. Still 249! WTH! I thought my weight loss had been slowing down, but it hasn’t!!!! WOOT!
30 lbs down – 20 to go till I reach my first goal!
We had a great weekend. It started with the wife and I playing some tennis while the kids played at the park on the other side of the fence. After tennis, we did some mini-workouts on the park equipment. I had tried months earlier to take a swing on the monkey bars. Unfortunately, this ended up as me hanging from the first bar in pain and quickly sliding off. However, this time I managed to do an entire pass on the monkey bars – WTF! OMG! I didn’t kill myself – PROGRESS!
Then, I hit my first major food challenge in this journey. The wife and I decided to take the kids to see “Angry Birds” in 3-D as a surprise on Memorial Day. In all previous movie treks I’m known for getting ridiculous amounts of snacks. Normally, I’d get two 54oz Cherry Coke sodas, a large popcorn, and at least two candies. This time, the wife and I split a small popcorn and a 20oz bottle of water for each of us. HOLY CRAP! I did it! Then, for dinner that night, we were going to a friend’s house to have homemade smoked ribs. He made 6 racks each with a different flavor. The flavor was amaziballs! However, I controlled myself and had kept it under 1300 calories for dinner. I was sure before dinner I would blow out my calorie goal and just have to take it as a ‘day off’. However, I managed to stay under my calorie goals even with those temptations! KICK ASS!
