Day 23 on Weight Loss Challenge

Part of the You Can Learn Good Health series.

We have been dieting for 3 weeks now. We have good days where we eat healthy and bad days where we pig out. We have learned the proper foods to eat, to include exercise with our diet and we are looking forward to wearing slimmer clothes. When you eat right, you feel better about yourself and you treat others better. Commit today to eating healthy.

Today, I spent my lunch time walking 4 miles. There were still some icy spots on the path, some muddy spots, but mostly a fun walking experience. We are expecting snow on Wednesday, so that could mess up the paths a little bit, make them more dangerous.
I weightlifted when I got home today. Worked on my chest and triceps. Did the bench press with barbell, inclined bench press with dumbbells, dumbbell flyes, dips, french curls, and bent over dumbbell press. When I have a good weightlifting workout, I stay warm all night long. That means my body is burning calories and I am losing weight.

I had a normal breakfast. Two servings of Instant Grits. A scrambled egg, a tablespoon of butter, 8 ounces of orange juice and a 6 ounce glass of milk.

I went to Subway for lunch. I had a turkey breast and ham sandwich on wheat bread. Only 6 inches. I asked for light mayo on the sandwich, included cheese, spinach, lettuce, and tomatoes. I did have potato chips and a 12 ounce cola.

Mary and I both ate too much for dinner. We made sloppy joes and we both should have stopped at one sandwich. But we over celebrated fat Tuesday with 3 sandwiches for me and potato chips. I drank water, which was the only positive for supper.

So Wednesday is Ash Wednesday and is normally a day of fasting for Roman Catholics. Fasting doesn't mean you don't eat anything, it normally means you eat less each meal. So if I normally have 2 servings of grits every morning, then I should reduce that to one serving. Cut each meal in half.

Even if you are not Catholic, the lenten season is a good time to reevaluate your New Year resolutions and to re-commit to making positive things happen in your life.

Good luck today and have a great day!
