Total score: -1.5
Right, this isn’t funny any more. Week 1 I’ll admit, I didn’t even bother to try. Week 2 I started to work out and be healthy but then it can take time to start to lose weight so I let that go too. But now Week 3 is upon me and I am working out like a ninja, I am eating like a small tiny mouse, and I’ve only lost 1.5 lbs !!! What the hell. Now I am not the kind to give up easily, I will continue this crusade until I crush my small belly under a pile of low-calorie popcorn and spin classes.
Let’s talk about food. I am now eating the following during a typical work day:
- 1x 70 calorie low-fat yoghurt (I know, it’s embarrassing)
- 1x Giant Coffee (I’ve mentioned that I refuse to give this up)
- 1x chicken salad (a tiny model would eat this) OR 1x small sushi (I’m too scared to look up calories in sushi but I think there aren’t many)
- 1x metcalf skinny sea-salt popcorn for mid afternoon snack (Yes really, skinny)
- For dinner it’s a selection of healthy chilli, healthy pizza (<400 cals), diet singapore noodles cut with brocolli.
And most importantly of all NO BOOZE!! (except on Wednesday I did because a good friend is leaving town). I mean come on! It’s ridiculous. On top of this I have been showing all the symptoms of someone slowly starving themselves to death: irritability, tiredness, brain work not issues. Part of me is a little bit worried that someone might mug be just because I clearly look like a man who couldn’t put up a fight right now…
The only thing I can think of that might be to blame is the following. Lets say on average a guy will fluctuate 4lbs day to day just because of various issues with water retention and well poo. So when I started at -0 lbs I was near the bottom of this range (but my average was on average 2 lbs higher) and yesterday on my weigh-in I was near the top of the range (so my average should be 2lbs lower). So a bit of math suggests that potentially I could be on -5.5 lbs. So in some ways you might say that I am crushing this challenge. I nearly made you a graph but MRS said I needed to calm down and I was taking this too seriously…
***Breaking News*** today I found out MRS’s methodology for calculating her weight loss. She rounds DOWN to the nearest pound… I mean, that’s got to be very far down the list of ways to measure weight loss accurately… Hey MRS I’ve invented a new method of working out weight loss, I like to call it “round my weight down to the number number that means I’ve lost 10 lbs”…
