Hey guys. Eats have been so-so. Time for a serious LC grocery shopping trip.

Just saw a picture of a wedge salad, which is a quarter of a head of iceberg lettuce w/ bleu cheese dressing, crumbled bacon, and plenty of fresh-ground black pepper. I haven't had one in years. Definitely on this evening's menu.

Down a few in the first week, to be expected but nice to know I am doing it right. Got out on the Mountain Bike this weekend for a couple of hours. A lot of fun, however, opened my eyes to just how far my fitness has fallen. Tough keeping up with my friends and thought my heart might blow out of my chest on a couple of the climbs.

Went down once pretty hard and broke my front shifter and snapped the buckle off my shoe. No injuries though, my Wife was thrilled with that since I have now broken 5 fingers in 3 separate wrecks on the bike over the last year. Going to try and get by the bike shop tonight and pick up the part on the way to the park for another round. Let's hope I can keep the bike in the upright position tonight.

No running last week or the next 5-7, trying to heal my Planter Fasciitis. Workout plan for this week is Riding Monday & Weds and weights on Tuesday & Thursday. Weekends used to be my long run so I guess I might jump on the road or mountain bike and go for rides.

Have not been lifting as I should so I have a feeling that this first week is going to be tough. I see pain in my future.

Funny you bring the wedge salad up, must be a rediscovered trend. My Wife and I were out to eat and that is what I had for dinner. It was very good but paid 10 bucks for a salad that had about 2 dollars worth of ingredients. I hate going out to eat.

No movement (officially) in the scale this week, though I weighed lower in the middle of the week. Did not stick fully to plan over the weekend so I'm sure the extra carbs have me holding on to some additional water. Had to get a new belt, though which is a good thing. That was my father's day present.

I find a secret for me is that I grill a bunch of meat at a time, and my wife makes a few salads. On Sunday I made a london broil, and 6 chicken breasts. That and the salads makes most of my meals this week. I like a marinated vegetable salad which includes a california mix vegetables blanched, add black olives, celery, onions, mushrooms, and then vinegar and oil and a hidden valley salad dressing packet. The other one I like is chopped radishes and cauliflower in a dressing that is equal parts mayonnaise and sour cream, with dill weed added. Throw in a taco salad during the week and I'm pretty well set.

batlou - I know what you mean about restaurant prices. Then I feel like I've got to get my money's worth by eating all the starch that comes with the meal.

I just found out this weekend that the last Don Roth's Blackhawk in Chicago closed in 2009. Humbug! That was a great steak house.

Back up to 195, from 193 last Monday. Not a huge surprise.

Bacon and eggs for breakfast, then I'll have some meatballs in lc spaghetti sauce and lettuce for lunch. I have a recipe for something that looks a little like a hush puppy made with eggs, cheese, and broccoli that I may make for dinner.

editted to add: Marvin - sounds like good eats! I have not had london broil in too long.

Hey Guys,

I am on one of my last legs of serious travel. I have been doing very well eating and have thrown in some exercise when I can. I rode bike this weekend between rain events and I sure can feel it still this morning. It's been a while since on my bike.

Keep working hard!

Peace!
Harley

Harley and Huff - I've not been on a bike in some years. But one of my co-workers told me about the Fremont Summer Solstice Parade he and his wife went to Saturday. I knew they had naked bikers, but I thought it was a dozen or so. He told me this year there were at least 500. That does not sound comfortable.

Still hanging in at 195. Today I'm going to make lc spaghetti sauce with sliced zucchini and ground turkey, and get out into the sunshine for a good walk.

Haha, I am planning to avoid naked cycling. Nothing to gain from that and honestly I would not want to subject the general public to such a display anyway. I did get a link to photo's from that event. Ackk...not a lot of lookers in that group.

@huff: You are right about MTB'ing testing your fitness. Hit a long climb and there are really no shortcuts. Just have to press on or get off and walk. Parts came in Saturday for mine. My bike is on the car now, heading by the shop to fix it up and then to the park to hit some trails. Current Temp is 92 with heat index +100. My expectations are pretty low.

ETA: I am up a pound this week. Likely all of those beers I drank last night watching the World Cup Match.

So, I've been at my current weight for about 3 weeks now.

I'm currently at 211.6 lbs. I have been doing one hour of cardio per day and running 2400 calories with at least 212 grams of protein. A week ago, I was worn out and generally feeling pretty crappy. I had no sex drive, felt depressed, and was in a super bad mood all the time.

I raised my calories to 2600 per day and added 10 grams of fish oil daily. I'm sure adding the calories had more to do with it than the fish oil, but I'm too superstitious to change anything. My sex drive is up, I have energy again, and I feel happier.

I worked out with weights last Thursday, and I was incredibly weak, especially in my chest. I was struggling to bench press 130 on the bench press machine, which isn't good. Three to four years ago, I was using 260 as my working weight on free weights. I have a feeling my surgery had something to do with this, especially since I got super sore and swollen after my workout.

This next week will not be a good one for me diet wise. My kids are going out of town for a whole week for the first time in years. I'm going to try to limit the eat outs to no more than once per day, but I don't know how successful I'll be.

I know that I'm not losing weight, but I'm feeling pretty incredible right now, and there's that point where you just know that although it isn't showing on the outside yet, something good is happening on the inside. I feel like things are starting to align.

Down 2 this week. Busy weekend, managed to get a workout in with my Son on Saturday and out on the Mountain bike for a couple of hours on Sunday. Also had to put a scaffold to hang a ceiling fan in my living room. Ceiling is 18 feet up and my tallest ladder is only 10 feet. I have installed several fans over the years and never had an issue. This time everything that could go wrong did which made me go over by an hour on the scaffold rental.

Down 3 pounds, to 192. I think it's the heat reducing my appetite, rather than diligence on my part. But I'll take it!

Hey boys! Long time no see. Despite my absence, I'm doing OK. I just got back a week ago from a week vacation to SoCal with family. Did a few days at Disney, Universal studios and the usual touristy stuff. Great time, ate like a pig, but walked a ton.

Weight is at 216.2 this morning. I jumped back into induction the day after I returned, and I've stuck to it. I've been jogging or biking with the kids everyday.

I'll take a little time to catch up on everyone's posts over the next few days, but will be around a lot more!

Hi Everyone - checking in.

Not a lot of good to report. I have been eating bad, exercising little, up about 8 lbs. I have decided to jump on my bike more and hopefully get going in a positive direction again. It is a fun activity, but there is not much for biking in this area unless you like paved trails. Temps are brutal and humidity is high today so I went out and rode about 45 minutes this morning. A cold front is supposed to drop temps into the low 80s in a few days so I am going to pack the bike and head to a new spot in Western Nebraska that is supposed to be pretty good. My buddy and I have talked about visiting for years and now we might actually do it. I would prefer to hit Crested Butte, CO but it looks like timing will not work out this year.

Going to work on eating good and getting moderate exercise over the next week. Even though I do not feel recording calories works for me, I am going to start that again just so I have a record of what I ate. There are days I eat a lot and forget exactly how much I consumed.

The only solid win I have had this year is being diet soda free. I have substituted with a Coke here and there, but I want to be done with the diet soda for good.

D - way to go getting back on induction right away. Vacations are slippery beasts.

Huff - good work wrestling the diet soda monster. I know things worked better for me when I recorded what I ate. I just get frustrated when I have a mixture of foods and I'm too lazy to break them down.

My food yesterday was:

bkfst - a cup of cottage cheese w/ a chopped apple and 1/4 c chopped walnuts
lunch - 3/4 ounce cheddar cheese and 6 oz salted almonds (over several hours)
dinner - lettuce, tomato, and chopped cucumber salad w/ ranch dressing

my plan for today:

bkfst: 4 strips bacon and 2 fried eggs w/ a slice of cheese
lunch: the rest of a stir-fry I made with onions, peppers, tomatoes, and ground turkey
dinner: the rest of the green salad w/ canned tuna or chicken

I've been out of the junk food for 2 whole days. The only non-induction food I have in the house right now is chopped walnuts. This is the time to do it.

weight - I'm holding from last week at 192.

plan for tomorrow:

bkfst: 4 strips bacon and 2 fried eggs w/ a slice of cheese
lunch: the rest of the green salad w/ canned tuna or chicken
dinner: hamburger and steamed broccoli

Doug - Like those menus.

I biked Potter's Pasture with a friend today. Great weather, nice scenery, new experience. About 3.5 hours of riding time at a pretty slow pace. Walked away tired but not spent. One of the more desolate places I've biked. It was just us, some cattle, and lots of open prairie.

Had a physical yesterday. Everything is looking good and my doc was OK with my weight. We both I know I'm still 20 over what I need to be, but over the last 3 years it's finally trending in the right direction.

Had four clean days, then yesterday I didn't bring lunch to work, went to a minimart instead, and drove right off the cliff. Going grocery shopping today.

Huff - that sounds like terrific riding country.

D - kudos for trending in the right direction.

Today's plan:

bacon/eggs/cheese for bkfst
salad w/ sliced turkey for lunch
hamburger and broccoli for dinner

I finally decided to go for a morning walk. Years ago, that walk was ritualistic. I would rarely miss a day. I am sure I am not alone on this, but it seems there is so much to get done in a day that the list of priorities take precedence. My goal for next week to to make time to do some sort of physical activity that counts.

Big D - Sounds like a great report from the doc. Keep trending.

7/3 - 216.2
7/14 - 214.6

Not jogging much, but getting in a variety of different forms of exercise 5x/week. My wife has become obsessed that our older son is putting on weight (he's not), so we're doing lots of family exercise activities. My mother has planted the seed that both of my children will be fat, because I was thin and then started putting on weight at some random age. As my children get older and haven't started putting on weight, my mom keeps changing the age I started getting fat. In reality it was about 6, but since my older son is now 10, that doesn't fit her narrative, so now in her make believe world, I was thin until 10. I wish.

Not a great food week. Fortunately, I'm holding at 192 this morning.

Huff - I remember when you were reporting a walk every day. I know what you mean about other things crowding exercise out. Are you living in a different part of the country than you were a couple years ago?

Hello everyone! I've had family in town for the last 3 weeks, going to amusement parks and eating junk food, almost non stop.

It seems like the next 3 months is the perfect time to do everything right. It's almost the end of summer, and there aren't any major holidays in my way.

I found a nutrition and training plan from 5 years ago that a trainer had given me for $250. It was the most effective diet and training plan of my life. I lost 12 pounds of pure fat in 3 months, and that was with lots of cheating.

In fact, the trainer was so disappointed that I had only lost 12 pounds of fat that he canceled me as a client and told me not to waste my money or his time.

I started the plan again yesterday morning. It's pretty much low calorie, low carb, low fat, and high protein. It's extremely effective and extremely boring.

I weighed in yesterday at 215.2, and I weighed in today at 211.2 - 4 pounds of water gone...

I'm accustomed to low carb, but I'm not accustomed to it without lots of brisket, ribs, and jars of peanuts......

Not Quite So Big D,

It's crazy how much your mom sounds like mine. We don't see my mom very often, but when we do, she's always controlling what my kids eat and saying things to make them feel fat.

My mom's idea of good nutrition is making a pure sugar banana pudding with low fat milk. That's not meant to be a joke.....

Of course, most of you know that I moved from New Orleans, LA to Austin, TX last year. The difference in the public schools is unbelievable, for my wife and I, at least....

In their school in LA, they had PE once per week and didn't even get recess every day. Here, they have PE and recess every day, and their PE is boot camp style - burpees, sprints, push ups, planks, etc.

We absolutely love it here.

Good work everyone, and I hope to make some real changes in the next 3 months.

Doug - still in the same part of the country. I just found ways to occupy my time with other things. Mostly poor excuses.

I did not get the walk a day in last week. I am going to try again. I loaded up podcasts on my iPhone so I can get two things done at once.

Chasing - I have found that boring works best. Problem is, I get bored and give up. Persistence is tough, but obviously the key. Look forward to hearing the results.

Last week - not sure

My diet is really draining me. I've only been on about 5 days. I've barely got any energy, and I've been feeling depressed.

On the positive side of things, I'm definitely dropping weight.

I'm definitely hoping that my body will adjust and learn to pull some more energy from my fat stores.

I'm not giving up, but I don't think my wife will allow me to stay on this diet if my sex drive continues to be non existent, that's for sure.

> It's pretty much low calorie, low carb, low fat, and high protein.

CB - I don't know if 5 days would be enough to make a difference, but you need fat in your diet to make testosterone. That's one reason I've not tried to stay LC and LF at the same time.

193, up a pound from a couple weeks ago, but it could have been worse, considering my eats.

It's hard to believe it's almost August!
