Day 26 of fitness plan

I’ve stuck to Weight Watchers four days in a row now, and either the scale is broken, or I’m losing a lot of weight fast. I’m betting the scale just sucks. It’s a 10-year-old digital bathroom scale in which I haven’t changed the battery in ages, but until its proven one way or the other, I’ll just go ahead and feel good about losing weight.

I ran on the treadmill this morning as it is still cold as hell outside. I forgot to turn on the TV before I started so I spent the whole 26.5 minutes counting my steps from one to fifty and starting over. Never let it be said that I don’t have at least a touch of OCPD.

Weight:277.5 pounds

Exercise:Week 4 Day 3 of the couch-to-5k plan

Yesterday’s water:Two 1-liter bottles of tap water.

Yesterday’s WW points:37 (36 food points – 1 activity points)

Day 25 of fitness plan

Three days in a row for sticking to Weight Watchers. I seem to be doing better with push-ups too. To heck with my previous theory about popping up at the end. The trick seems to be to do them as quickly as possible. That doesn’t mean only go half-way down like kids seem to do when they are ordered to do pushups by their coaches. It just means to try to do the pushups as fast as possible.

Weight:280.5 pounds

Exercise:Week 2 Day 2 of the hundredpushups.com plan. 5 sets (5,6,4,4,12)

Yesterday’s water:Two 1-liter bottles of tap water.

Yesterday’s WW points:36 (40 food points – 4 activity points)

Day 23 of fitness plan

I actually stuck to my diet yesterday. I’m allowed 40 points per day on Weight Watchers, and I only used 36. I ate 40 points worth of food, but I earned 4 points for running.

18 points was for two and a half peanut butter and jelly sandwiches that I had as a late-night snack. I didn’t realize that peanut butter had so many calories until after I had eaten the sandwiches and checked the label on the peanut butter jar.

Weight:285.5 pounds

Exercise:Week 2 Day 1 of the hundredpushups.com plan (again). 5 sets (4,6,4,4,10)

Yesterday’s water:Two 1-liter bottles of tap water.

Yesterday’s WW points:36 (40 food points – 4 activity points)
