Hey all, I had a great two days...I counted no calories.
If you want to hear something that may make you a little angry, keep on...
If not, skip the part in Blue....
I lost two pounds when I stepped on the scale tonight.
I have no idea how. I didn't exercise and I ate whatever my little heart desired.
Granted, my little heart couldn't eat like it used to...but since I counted no calories I have no idea how much I did or didn't eat...
I do know I had a piece of cheesecake...a small one. I had some cheeseball with crackers. Some ham, some mashed taters and some brussell sprouts. I wasn't able to down a ton...and at one point I ate some eggs because I had a headache from the chocolate butter finger bells I ate...about ten or fifteen.
Maybe my metabolism said "HEY, WE'RE BACK IN BUSINESS BABY...WHAHOOOOOOOO!!!"
I have no idea.
It was back to the gym today.
I was on Arnold for one hour and really burned it down...I burned 700 calories in one hour and then I did about 40 situps cause the gym was closing.
It's back to the gym tomorrow with a new workout partner...
She is fun, but not so 'fun' that I talk through my whole workout.
She will probably be coming along once or twice a week for a while.
This is good for me. I need to be more social.
It Used to be that unless someone threw themselves on the windshield of my car...I wasn't going to meet them.
This was one of my personal goals. Making new friends.
I'm up to two.
Who knows...I could clear three by the end of next year.
My problem is, I don't like to expend emotional energy. I really have to like and admire somebody to be 'friends'. There has to be something about them that says 'class act'.
I don't call acquaintances, friends.
Once they are my 'friend', then I am 'on their side'.
I am a very loyal person.
It also means they can call me at 2 in the morning from jail and I will use my money to bail them out.
There are very few people that hit that thresh hold...I'm cheap. lol.
But enough about that.
So, to the title of this post and that clock at the top of my blog.
I go back to Michigan and Ohio in July of this coming year.
I want to be a size 10....
I even bought the pants...they are ready and willing.
I am able.
In this corner.
A 5'3" heavyweight. Formerly 262 lbs...current weight to be updated on December 31rst.
Lets just say she's a lot lighter than she used to be.
In the other corner.
A pair of dark denim size 10's with small pockets and just enough Lycra to endear themselves to girls who bloat when Tom comes calling....
A pair of jeans, the size of which this woman has not seen in lo these many years....15 in fact.
A pair of jeans that called to her from a goodwill rack off highway 85.
They said, "I'll make your *ss look like a size 8...all this for 3.99 baby!"
The challenge was thrown, and it was accepted...
and so was born Fatmaggedon 2010.
It ends on July 15Th.
I suspect I will need to be somewhere around 145 lbs for this to work.
Right now that would be a 45 lb or so loss.
In six months.
I will be calorie cycling...1400/1500 then when I hit 165 or so 1300/1400.
I will have two high calorie days per month.
one will be my current weight plus a zero...
so for example 185 would be 1850 calories.
One day will be current weight plus whatever I burn that day at the gym.
so 1850 plus 600...2450.
I find cycling my calories keeps my metabolism on it's toes and keeps me from getting bored.
I will be exercising 6 days a week. The first three months, I will continue my current one hour and fifteen minutes.
Come April I have something else in mind...
A kind of mini boot camp, loosely based on my time in the army.
A time when I went in at 158, and came out at 136 eight weeks later.
22 lbs in two months, all while I inhaled any food within sniffing distance without thought nor care for it's calorie content.
I vaguely remember one breakfast that consisted of vanilla yogurt, waffles and syrup, two sausages, a piece of toast and an orange, and some milk and coffee.
And that was just breakfast.
I ate that in five minutes.
All of it, every last bite.
This time I won't be hiking twelve miles, but I will be walking two to three in the morning and working out for an hour in the evenings.
On alternate days I will be doing a Jillian Micheal's 30 day shred video then going to the gym for cardio at night.
It's probably going to kick my rear.
By then I should be able to take it.
Fatmageddon officially starts on January 1rst.
On December 31rst, I intend to post my weight for a year end total.
On January 1rst, I intend to post my weight for my Fatmageddon countdown to Michigan.
