I had a great workout tonight. I spent some time on the stationary bike and then did some arm curls and sit-up (have to work on the belly!). The best part of the workout was that Meg was able to join me! I recommend working out with a loved one - it makes the time pass more quickly.
So, the debate in my mind for tonight is how often I should weigh-in. Daily or Weekly? I like the thought of a little daily affirmation of my efforts! However, if the scale moves in the wrong direction, it would be frustrating. Which do you think I should pick? I did not get on the scale today - I might tomorrow just to peek! It might be a good idea to weigh-in twice a week. Would be a nice balance between daily and weekly.
Now, I know you are going to think I am insane (if you think that, you might just be right!), by my dinner was almost the same as last night. So, you might say - "Hey Fat Guy, are you going to try to do this by eating Turkey Sandwiches and Hamburgers?" You might also say "Good Luck with that Dude!" I can assure you, this will not be a series of duplicate messages. Tonight was simply a product of running a little late and wanting to work out. My schedule forces us to call an audible for dinner and we had left-overs (which were very good by the way!). You will most likely see lots of Turkey Sandwiches on the lunch menu, but dinner will vary!
For dinner tonight I had a hamburger (350), cole slaw (150), mixed vegetables (300), and a pear (100) - I am estimating my dinner as 900. That puts me at an estimated 1990 calories for the day - which is still under my goal for daily caloric intake!
