Fifteen in Fourteen: Day Two

Tue 09 October 2018

Okay, this is where I was supposed to be two days ago. At this point, I am about three pounds away from my ultimate goal with a little less than two weeks to go. (There's a bit of a rounding error that I have been using to my advantage, but I'm going to clear that out by week fifteen.)

Here's what I ate yesterday:

  • cereal + granola with almond milk (had this once in the morning and once at night)
  • lots of coffee throughout the morning
  • brown rice with a small hamburger patty and two fried eggs for lunch
  • a small bowl of yakisoba in the afternoon
  • quick snack on a couple of small carrots and zucchini slices

I'm going to try to eat pretty much the same thing over the next couple of weeks. I got through the day pretty well on this, though I might have to replace the noodles with something else starting today.

Also — Sprouts has been out of the Seedsational bread the last few times we've gone to get groceries. I'm having to improvise a little bit.

The Fifteen in Fourteen Sprint

Mon 08 October 2018

In fourteen days, it will be the end of week fifteen. The plan is to lose my fifteenth pound by then, hence the title of this post.

I'm going to stay on target for the next fourteen days, starting today. I have a little over four pounds to drop between now and then. That's an average of about two pounds per week. It's doable, but not easy.

I dropped about a quarter of a pound from yesterday, by the way.

I think I will try to stick to eating the same thing every day for the next couple of weeks. It won't be a strict mono-diet. I'll throw in some variety for different times of day.

Also, I am experimenting with a couple of food-logging apps on my phone. There have been a couple of times in the past where I logged my food while trying to drop weight. I just wrote down everything I ate in a notepad app. However, these apps, recommended by a friend, are much more detailed. Entering a food item calculates the calories for you automatically.

I don't know. I think it's too much fitness geekery for me. I don't need to know exactly how many calories I burn every day as long as I'm at the right weight. I'll keep trying it for a few more days though, just to see if it's any help.
