I started my morning waking up in New Jersey. I ate a healthy breakfast, went into the office to get a couple of things taken care of, came home to finish packing for the trip, and took off for the airport. I spent the majority of the evening flying and just checked into my hotel literally about a half an hour ago. But the good thing is that I managed to eat healthy the entire day. It is not easy eating healthy in every airport I travel through. Some airports have only fast food and some others have healthy food carts / stands with the pre-made sandwiches and snacks. I tend to search for the carts more because it is easier to adjust and eat healthy on the run by purchasing food from those types of places. Working out is a little harder when I am on the road as well because not every hotel has a fitness center. I will lift weights when I can but I have a feeling that I will be doing a lot more cardio in the future, when on the road, because of my new found love for running outside. Regardless, it is hard enough to stick to my mission when I am at home, let alone on the road. However, I have come so far already and I am not going to let anything keep me from achieving my goals.
Also, I have a little update on my recent weight fluctuation. I have been up and down in weight for the last few days. I was at the 243 lb range a few days ago but I am currently weighing in the 246 lb range. I have been working out pretty hard the last couple of days and the majority of people who I talk to about this situation, all say that I have been gaining muscle. My friend even brought up a good point today. He said that my 5 lb weight loss from last Monday to this past Monday was out the ordinary for my body because I have been losing a healthy 1-2 lbs every week now, for the last few months. He said it is very possible that my body is now leveling out, after losing 5 lbs in a short amount of time. That could be why I gained 3 pounds in the last few days. I am also sure that the weight lifting sessions are contributing to that as well.
Can anyone please let me know if this new assumption makes sense. I am still learning as I go and it would be cool to find out the answer. Anyway, on to the next day!
With that being said, let's get to the details of the day:
Meals of the Day (The Heavy Man - 37 Points)
(I am currently following the Weight Watchers Points System)
Breakfast - 4 Eggo nutirgrain waffles = Points 4
Snacks During the Day - 1 Pear and 1 Apple = Points 2
Lunch - 1 Boca Veggie Burger with a slice of Weight Watchers american cheese on a Weight Watchers roll with a serving of baked potato chips = Points 7
Dinner - Half a Turkey Club Wrap and Half a Turkey BLT Sandwich (Airport Food Cart) with a 1/2 a serving of BBQ Chips = Estimated Points 25 Points
Total Points Eaten Today = 38 Points (1 point over my daily limit)
Today, I did not get a chance to go to the gym or run. I will get back to the grind tomorrow by running and doing cardio.
