2009 - Week Seven - "The WAGON Broke"

Today's Weight = 326.2 (+2.6wtd/-34.8ytd)

I averaged 1996 calories last week with the following breakdown; Carbs - 44%, Fat - 30%, Protein - 21% and Alcohol - 5%.

I really don't have a lot to say this week. I had a gain this week and for the most part the week was good, I did cardio three times and lifted twice and overall maintained a good healthy outlook throughout the week. With a Monday morning weigh in it is important to make Saturday's count and I didn't do great this past Saturday. Yes I did have a few drinks and had a great time out at Clancey's on Saturday night. Got home and proceeded to GRAZE like a COW and got what I deserved at this weigh in this week, so be it. Actually it felt like a burden had been lifted after the three or four scotches and three or four beers, oh well, so the wagon isn't for me. Moderation is key here and I have no issue with it moving forward. You have weeks where your body doesn't respond as well as you would think and its really just your body and not your week, look at the Biggest loser folks, some can post a gain while working out 5/6 hours a week and being directly supervised for their nutrition. Honestly I am not at all worried about reverting to old habits cause this process is here to stay.

I knew that DAMN wagon wasn't very sturdy but I gave it a shot....

Although I didn't help our team goal this week I am expecting good things this week.

Keep the Faith and FIGHT THE FAT...

Regardless, you've still had a remarkable weight loss already this year. Keep up the good work.

So the fat man won one battle. Screw him. Treat him like a Sig Tau. Make sure that you win the war.

Of course it does kind of hurt, wouldn't drink with the boys, but you retreat to a pub and give in. I think you owe a couple of warm Steel Reserves.

Its good that you breakdown your calories and the past two weeks I have had a couple of drinking nights with the friends, so I can't judge there. But do try to up the Protein% and reduce the Fat%. If you could keep the fat half of the calories of the protein, your going to see much better progress -- I notice you did better in this regard the first weeks of the year when you dropped more. Just an observation.

The occasional night out is ok. It's when it becomes a regular thing that it's a problem. Don't feel bad about it!
