Weekly Weigh-in Wedneday

I’m on the road this week at the Bullhead City River Regatta, food and an accurate scale pose a challenge.

Starting Weight:    240 lbs. (August, 1 2012)

Current Weight:    235.4 lbs. (August 8, 2012)

Loss of another 5 lbs.!!!!  I surpassed my mini goal

Yes, the scale says I lost another five pounds, however, it’s not my scale and I’m bit skeptical. The only confirmation for the weigh loss it my daily intake. I’ve been keeping with in my 1280 calorie limit for the last few days. My body is adjusting to this new level and is actually signaling me when I’m full. When I’m dining out I end up leaving half a plate of food. 😦 Why do they have to serve such big plates of food?  I know, I know…I’ve seen the movie Supersize Me. There’s documentary that will change your mind about fast food.

When I’m out with my daughter I try to split a plate so nothing goes to waste.

Mini-goal: 232 lbs for next week. As you know I posted last week that I broke the 30 lb gravel ball, still no update as to it’s health status, LOL. This week I will most likely be tugging and hauling my parent’s Seadoo and Shuttle in the river, plus 115 degree heat will be a workout in itself.

I broke the gravel ball…

After three bouts of hurling a 30 lb gravel ball over my 6 ft tall trainer’s head…up and down the gym, I killed the gravel ball. Its sandy contents spilled out onto the gym floor. Oops! 😀

Weekly Weigh-in Wednesday

I meet with my personal trainer today for my weekly medieval torture/butt kicking and he is expecting results…so here are the numbers:

Starting Weight:    245 lbs. (July 27, 2012)

Current Weight:    240 lbs. (August 1, 2012)

Loss of 5 lbs.!!!!

Mini-goal: 237lbs for next week. I will update my measurements at the end of the month, although I can tell clothes are beginning to feel loose. This news I’m sure my trainer will suggest “flipping tractor tires” across the gym or maybe even more squats while bear hugging a 40lbs sandbag nick named “Major General Parks”!!! (It’s even dressed in a camouflage duffel, too) Oh, how I dislike “Parks”, by the time I’m done doing the second set of squats I’m ready to chuck it. Either way, I’m bound to be crawling to my car.
