Weekend Update

Well… I had ONE goal for the weekend: don’t gain weight and I failed miserably.

On Saturday morning I weigh in at 249 and I was so excited about it. Monday morning I weigh in at 253, crap!

I have two suspects that could be responsible.

  1. Cooked whole milk with coffee
  2. Sweet bread

I’ll have to make a more deliberate effort to avoid these in the future .

Perhaps I should avoid my parents house on weekends all together, who am I kidding that will never happen.

Anyways, it’s still progress overall but sucks that I gain back a high percentage of the weight. It’s so god damn difficult to get rid of it.

Thanks for listening!

Saturday was my day off from running but it was full of activities. Started with breakfast with the family @ Hammersmith in Saugus. After breakfast we went to Castle Island in Boston so my nieces could run around and play.

In the afternoon we split up; the girls went to the museum with my brother and my mom and my son and I went to the movies. After the movies we went out for sushi!

Finally my brother and I finished the day by watching boxing! Keith Thurman vs Shawn Porter was a fantastic fight. I like both fighters and they did not disappoint.

I started Sunday morning with a 3.6 mile run; then breakfast @ my parents. In the afternoon we went shopping with my niece who’s visiting from Texas. I finished the day with a 5.3 mile run along the Revere Beach.

Sunday evening I got a haircut and shaved my beard. I think I’ll start growing it again pretty soon. 

Aside from the weight gain, it was a great weekend. All I can do is keep working at it this week. We’ll see what happens. 

I should mention my buddy Mike, the one participating in the step challenge at work, got the final results today. He finished in 9th place out of 233 employees. Congrats Mike, nicely done.

Thanks for reading! What did you do this weekend?
