Day 17 on Holiday Weight Loss Challenge

Part of the You Can Learn Good Health series.

The goal of this weight loss challenge is to lose 8 pounds in 8 weeks. Some people can do this in one week. How about you? Can you drop 8 pounds just by changing your eating habits and adding exercise? Of course you can. It may take you longer than a week. But you can do it. Diet and exercise are the tools to success in the weight loss game.

Today was a day of rest for me. Meaning I did not exercise today. I think the body needs rest to recover and grow. The last two days I have been exercising hard, over 8 miles walking, plus over an hour of weightlifting. To grow stronger requires rest. Tomorrow, I will get back into the exercise groove.
For breakfast I had 1 scrambled egg, 2 servings of instant grits, a tablespoon of butter, 6 ounces of milk and 8 ounces of orange juice. The milk is 2% milk.

Since I didn't exercise, I chose to go out to Subway for lunch. I could have done a lot better. I chose turkey and ham on 6 inch Italian bread. I added provolone cheese, mayo, lettuce, tomato and spinach leaves. The bad part was the potato chips and CocaCola I had with the meal.

For supper we had leftovers. Turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes, garlic bread and a brownie. It was all washed down with a glass of water. The brownies are all gone, so I am back on the good eating program.

The interesting thing that occurred to me today is when I went to the Subway. Right next to the Subway store was a QuikDrop store. The QuikDrop store allows you to take your family articles and sell them on EBay. They act as a middleman for you.

QuikDrop will take photos of your items. Then they write an advertising script to sell your family items. Then they manage the EBay selling process for you. When it is all done they sell your article, ship it to the buyer and then send you money less 20% to 38%, their cost of doing business.

This is a service that other companies are implementing in some fashion. QuikDrop is a franchise opportunity that just came to the Chicago area this last year. They are based out of Nevada. Looks like some companies are going to make some money with this opportunity.

Sorry to go off on a tangent today. Just thought you might find it interesting. Good luck on your eating and exercising today!
