Fat Guy Update IV

"It's just water weight, fat boy" is the typical response I get when I mention I've burned a few lbs. since signing up for the Golds Gym Body Success Challenge. I've lost just under six lbs. in two weeks and I'd probably have lost a few more if my diet wasn't so terrible.

I had McDonald's twice this weekend. I have a weak spot for Buffalo wings and I get my fix with the chicken strips and Buffalo dipping sauce. Then a certain friend, who shall remain anonymous (no, not Lil' Hammerhead), made me go to McDonald's for chicken nuggets. She rammed them down my throat as I screamed, "No, stop, don't!"

Oh wait, no. That's not how it happened. I rammed them down my own throat as she screamed, "Hey, leave one for me!"

I'm still trying to run 60 minutes per day. I didn't get a run in on Saturday, but I did referee women's soccer games for 90 minutes, so I don't feel too guilty. On Sunday I only got in 30 minutes before my right leg started cramping. Today it started cramping at 50. I'll probably have to slow down the runs so that I reach that 60 minute mark the rest of the week. Every day before this weekend though, I got in the full 60 minutes.

I also did some weights today. Amazing how weak you get when you don't go to the gym for two years. More on that later.

Try running every other day instead. You could always lift weights, swim, row, or paddle on other days.
