Today is Monday, November 30th, 2009.

Weighing in at 225 Pounds, gives me 15 pounds to lose by December 23rd, 2009 which is only 22 days away.

Why December 23rd?

Because that is the day my wife, two friends, and I leave for a week long vacation in Florida.

The last time we visited Florida I was 213 and felt pretty good.

Here, I will catalog my workouts and my food intake.


Breakfast: Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwich on White Bread
Snack 1: Nothing
Lunch: Turkey, Stuffing, Noodles, Broccoli & Cheese, Mashed Potatoes & Gravy (small portions, thanksgiving leftovers)
Snack 2: Nothing
Dinner: Same as Lunch Turkey Salad (see Day 2)

Workout: Elliptical Body for Life Ramp Up/Down

23 minutes on the elliptical
Started at level 5
Raised 1 level every 1 minute
After 5 level raises decreased back to level 5
After 5 more minutes and 5 level raises to 10, next 5 minutes went up to 15
Down to 10
Up to 15 again
Down to 10 and back up to 15 to finish

This was my start. It felt really good to be working out again. Here is to hoping to see 210!
