26 Miles – Last Week

So my first full week of running was completed on Sunday. In 5 trips I ran 26 miles in just over 5 hours. Granted this was on 5 different days so I am in no way saying I am ready to sign up for the Marathon next year, however it did feel really good.

I’m not going to watch the scale too much. Im trying to operate just on mood and feeling and right now it’s pretty good. The Jack3D is definitely helping with the endurance. I threw in some light circuit training work this past week as well.


So this is what failure feels like

I forgot I started this blog many moons ago. Much has happened since then, I bought a house and we recently celebrated our 10th anniversary. I saw some pics of myself and am utterly disgusted. My face and waist are huge.

Went to the gym last night and ran/walked 4 miles. I cant remember the last time I did that. I think the focus needs to be on cardio and diet. Pretty good today, protein, chicken and green beans and salad for lunch.

lets see if I can keep it up. 190 by years end?

Lets get it started…..

How many times can you hear “you look good with a little meat” , “you wouldn’t look right if you were thin” dont worry the camera add 5 pounds. This begs the age old question how many camera’s are on me?

Yes it’s time to start another weight loss journey and this time around I’m going the route of the V-Diet. What does this entail? Simply put 28 days of pure protein shakes, no carbs and one healthy solid meal a week. Then for 2 weeks there is transition. Is this the best way to lose the weight, Im not sure but at this point something has got to get me focused again.

So the starting numbers are not pretty. In this corner weighing in at a stealth 202 pounds – Butter Bean (AKA Yours Truly). If the V Diet gestapo find this post they wont be happy with me as I am not using the almighty BioTest products. I am going the 50% off route of True Protein Team Skip, Fish Oil, BCAA’s, Super Green, EC Stack and a few other items. The bill from BioTest would have been over 5 bills….This way just a little over $220.00. Im not knocking BioTest by any means, everything I have read says their great products, just seem a little pricey for me at this time.

I’m not really expecting anyone to read this. Its more a way for me to have an outlet to track progress and go nuts when someone in the office orders a pizza and I’m headlong into my 3rd shake of the day. Speaking of, its time for me to enjoy a Double Fudge delight..

Weight Loss FTW
