So i put my hands up, they're playin' my song

Butterflies fly away...

Oh man - last week I'd really found my mojo and got her working again. So much so that by Friday morning I weighed in at 250.2 - almost back into the 240s, and this time for keeps, right? Well...

Friday The Gal and her sister and I piled into the car to head south to Chicago for a weekend out, visiting another of her sisters. I was a calorie-nazi on Friday. I knew that it would be tough as the dinner was already planned - pizza. So I had a breakfast, counting every calorie. Once on the road, I drank water, then made sure to skip a burger and do a 6" Subway and more water. I left room for two slices of pizza and didn't go over the limit. It was a numerically-perfect day.

Then Saturday came.

The long and short of it is, when I did the add-up, I clocked in at a whopping 5000 calories. Mutha-fuck! Guess that's what a breakfast of Dunkin' Donuts and Starbucks and a dinner of Cheesecake Factory will do, especially when bad choices are made along the way. Add in a burrito and a road-burger for the drive home yesterday and I was up 8 fucking pounds when I stepped on the scale last night! Shit. This morning I was 256, and I'm planning on clean-eating for the week so I can get back under control, but damn kids. Your hero took some hits.

Thankfully I hit the shit outta intervals on the elliptical this morning and began the purge. I downloaded that annoying Miley Cyrus song and found that it was perfect for getting my ass in gear - great pace, good groove. I'm not a fan of it, but damn if I didn't wake up with it in my head as I heard that ditty several times over the weekend. Whatever it takes man, right? Noddin my head like yeah... Movin my hips like yeah...

Man, I don't know why mojo can be such an elusive thing. So hard to corral, so hard to contain. Still, you know what you gotta do, so make this week one for the books.

8 lbs? Good Gawd you know how to do it up right, don't you?
:D

Here's to a better week!

Well, the good thing is, pounds that go on fats, come off fast. Love the new profile pic :)

glad you had a good time with the gal pal, these pounds will come off fast and by Novemeber you will be firmly in the 240s never to return to the 250 pluses again

Some of those extra lbs. will be gone by tomorrow. You couldn't have eaten 28,000 calories in one weekend!

I had a beerfest two weeks ago and gained 8 and in two days it was gone.

Glad you got back on the plan today and love the new profile pic dude!

DANG. Well, at least you got it back now and are headed in the right direction. Hope this week is awesome for you!!

(Now I really wanna go download that song to workout to. Dang it!)

Sometimes I make playlists chock full of songs I down-right HATE, just so I work harder, faster, ... in order to take the headphones off.

It's a good plan.

Miley Cyrus? Really? Whatever works I guess.

Diz said...

Dude I like that song too- it's embarrassing, I know. I'm right there with you! But if it works, it works. You'll drop again- no worries. But 8 pounds! My brain would've exploded on the spot. Handle your biz tho- you got it.
