i made it through my week of vacation in mexico, dieting. it was rough not to indulge in all the yummies normally associated with vacation, especially one in mexico where they were serving margaritas and pina coladas on the beach! but i was a good boy, and enjoyed my morning workouts in the gym while my family was still asleep.
i lost 4 pounds even this week, for a 7 week grand total of 40.2 pounds. 5 weeks to go before the end of the competition. my original goal was “at least 30, but 40 would be nice.” now i’m thinking, “at least 50, but 60 would be nice.” i doubt i’ll get to 60 in the 12 week competition timeframe, but even passing 50 pounds in 12 weeks will be quite the happy accomplishment. that would put me under 200 pounds for the first time in about 9 years.
