3 Week Diet Fail

Its really sad to follow up my post of a 3 Week Diet Challenge with my 3 week diet failure! I was able to less for less then 5 days before I completely fell off track. The worst part is my weight seemed to be dropping like crazy mid-week and I’m sure I did some damage.

Full Failure

It happened Friday night…. A friend took us out to a really classy Steak house. I was peer pressured into getting some drinks with my friend but the 32oz Rib Eye was my fault. That and all the sides we got ala cart for the table to share. This doesn’t include the Sushi appetizer or the fact that they accidentally split Amy’s salad in half. It was really good food but totally not worth it as a cheat. I would have rather cheated with some Wendy’s and a milk shake. The only thing somewhat helpful was I went back to the gym the first time since California and burned about 800 calories on the treadmill. Still not a huge help.

This meal was grotesque and the total calories I logged on MFP were over 3,000!


It continues Saturday

Saturday afternoon we joined some friends for the St. Patrick’s Day parade in a small nearby town. It started with a pretzel I split with Amy. After that we went to our friends house where they bought a bunch of pizza for everyone and I couldn’t help but eat three slices. This was our afternoon.

At night we went to a friends birthday party in a bar. Amy and i didn’t have dinner so we split a Sliders appetizers which wasn’t so bad but I followed it up with about 6 or 7 beers and a shot of cafe patron.

Sunday Funday!

Sunday wasn’t a total loss because I had a big bowl of strawberry’s for breakfast. Lunch time came around and we decided on the diner. I knew this was my last big meal of the day and decided on french fries and a cheese-steak sandwich.


Not only did I eat like shit this weekend but activity was at an all time low. We laid around on the couch, napped and watched TV. Amy says were taking it in before the baby comes but watching my Fitbit was getting me seriously depressed.

I’m sure my Monday weigh-ins going to suck!

All I can do is get back on track =(


Surviving Valentines Day


After telling you about my Valentines day your going to think this weight loss journeys a scam!

My thoughtful and supportive wife sent me fruit from edible Arrangements figuring its the best choice for an after dinner dessert. Lots of fruit and a little bit of chocolate is a win for my calorie counting.

If your wondering why there’s two its because Amy sent me a smaller arrangement from our expecting baby. =)

Now…. being the thoughtful and supportive husband I am. I sent Amy 50 mini cupcakes to work from her favorite cupcake place, Baked by Melissa. I wont even get into the flavors of the little cupcakes because its makes my stomach growl thinking about it.

My plan for the night is to have 5-6 of these little cupcakes, a bunch of fruit and….

We’ll, lol.. what a bad night to ad a new post and the reason I talked about the desert first. I’m going off the calorie counting for this meal and were ordering takeout from our favorite Italian restaurant. I’m really not so worried about this because

1. I was under my calorie goal most days this week and I can afford a few extra calories.

2. I’ll punish myself in the gym tomorrow.

I might not reach the goal on my spreadsheet Monday but these are one of the failures I’m expecting along the way. Its also proof that you don’t have to suffer all the time to lose weight.

Valentines Day 2014

How will I add tonight into MFP?

For a night like tonight I’ll probably think about all the things I ate and see how bad I did. Then I will go into MFP and just use the add calories option to include what I think I realistically ate. I will break apart all the ingredients and guesstimate the calories in my head. Hopefully under 3,000, lol. My goal for dinner is to eat half and save the rest for lunch or dinner tomorrow. Then its right back the healthy lifestyle for this guy.
