This has been the best experience of my life. I have been forever changed by this program. I now sleep well, eat well, have more stamina in many ways (including mentally), and I have a new confidence about me that I didn't even know existed.
I took some time off from this blog due to some overtime work I have been doing for my job. We are launching some new web sites that have been taking up a lot of my time. So I am just going to recap my last couple of days.
I have stayed within my weight set point every day since my last steak day. I actually lost some weight and had to make sure I wasn't going to go under my weight. I am extremely excited to be near the end of the program and reap the benefits of all my efforts. What I have accomplished is something that I never would have imagined.
I feel like I owe steak day a gift cause he saved me again. I am right back at my set point. My doctor says "way to reign it again." I hope that I don't have to do this every week or so. I will be pretty much screwed if that is the case cause I was starving all day even after I ate my steak.
I am in the zone I guess. I had to walk a shit ton today cause my car is in the shop. After work I walked to the garage and picked it up. Then I had to pick up my son, but I was starving. If you have kids, you know that eating can be tricky so I just grabbed the almond butter and an apple and started slathering away. I was like dizzy hungry so I wasn't paying attention to how much I was eating... it was probably like 4 TBSP. I hope it doesnt' set me over too bad. Also today I didn't have a hard time eating my calories. I ate plenty!
Not much to say really. I am still doing good and my numbers look good. I am running every other day doing Couch to 5K and I am enjoying how light I am while I am running. I am heavily keeping track of my food intake and I am having a really hard time actually eating all my calories. I just can't do it. I will take that as a good thing and just keep eating good stuff.
I am getting a little sick of posts like these: Nutrimost: You Can't Cheat Life. Here's why...
I think that if you have an opinion about something that is fine. I would like to hear more opinions about NutriMost in fact, however, this is an attack piece designed to promote crossfit. I wish people would just promote their stuff without attacking other programs.
This is the third time steak day has helped me out. I think I got over zealous during the first week of reset phase. I had shots of vodka, wine and 3 beers. It is time to really suck it up and do this reset phase right. Luckily my body knows me by now and will most likely excuse my moments of weakness. I hope to end this phase with my set point in tact at 179.0 so I am just gonna reign it in a bit.
Well we are heading back home today and I kind of drank more than I should have on this trip. But, in my defense, it was my birthday and I drank way less than I would have normally. So I will tighten it up this week, and I am doing a steak day to get me back on track.
Another good day for the weight loss situation. I am still in the set point window and I feel pretty good. I also started Couch to 5K yesterday so I will be bloggin about that as well now. Vacation is starting for us and I am worried that I won't be able to stick to my plan. And I am not worried about temptation or anything... I am worried that I won't be able to eat as many calories as I need to stay at 2600 while also eating good allowed foods.
I am not sure why it works but it does. I am right back at my set point. And I really want to test out some foods today. Chocolate is one that I miss and my wife made these dark chocolate peanut butter cups with stevia and bakers chocolate. They taste amazing. I hope that it doesn't give me any triggers.
Overall I feel really good as well. I don't feel burdened by extra weight anymore. Seeing how well the steak day worked gives me a little bit of confidence as well. It will be sad to see alcohol go, but at the same time, it is now obvious that it is one of my triggers. I will have to seriously limit what I drink and how often if I want to keep off the weight.
Calorie Target = 2600
Your Weight Set Point = 178.6
Todays Weight = 181.4
Well I am over by more than .1 ounce. :) I wonder what it was that set me over... I think it might have been the alcohol. Not sure but since I am over I am doing a steak day. Well I wouldn't be too disappointed if vodka was my trigger becuase I don't relaly like vodka anyways, and it doesn't really get me that drunk. I will most likely be trying some beer in the next couple of days, since my birthday is coming up and I am not uber huge on deprivation.
Calorie Target = 2600
Your Weight Set Point = 178.6
Todays Weight = 178.0
At this point I guess I am doing okay. My doctor said it would be natural to gain a little weight. Honestly I couldn't really eat all of the calories I was supposed to. I think I finished at like 2300 or so. I am excited that I am staying close to my weight set point and that I get to eat a lot of calories. I am thinking that the alcohol may not have been a good idea the last night. I kind of feel like shit. And I drank more than I wanted to. The gig was so much more fun while drunk. :)
Wow the VLCD is over... and I am moving into PHASE 4. I can now eat from a larger variety of foods. I can also add in fats again. I can't, however, go over or under my weight set point by 2 pounds or I am eating something I shouldn't be.

I read these out loud in the mirror everyday for the last month and a half. I may continue to do so since they are exactly what I wanted to achieve during this program. I think I have actually instilled these thoughts and feelings into my core belief system. The power of belief is really quite amazing. It has a biology of it's own. If you are able to whole heartedly believe in yourself you can truly accomplish amazing things.
I'm a big nerd. I grew up with stuff like Alfred Hitchcock, and Sci-Fi Theatre, and my favorite... the books on tape Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. So my title is dedicated to the latter. Here is some information about the number. I am not sure how much it has to do with my weightloss journey, but since I am winding down I don't really know what this blog post should be about.
I was right... I ran out of my drops this morning. So technically this is Day 41. I am super excited. I DID IT! I made it through the hardest part of the program. There are still three days of VLCD, but, I did ~40 days of something that has totally paid off.
I am thinking that today is going to have to be my day 40. I am pretty sure that I will be out of drops by tomorrow. That makes sense cause there was a time or two, where I took more than .5 ml from the dropper. I am cool with that though, cause honestly I am ready to get back to normal. I have lost so much weight, and feel amazing, that I don't think I need to continue the VLCD for too much longer. Bring on PHASE 3 and let's get restored.
The steak day seemed to help and the ibuprofen didn't seem to hurt. I woke up this morning and felt like a new person and was down a pound from yesterday.
Well, every time I gig at the bar I gain weight the next day. I would really like to know what that is. I drink a little more water than normal, but I am also sweating it out. That headache I was telling you about is pretty bad today. I may have to take some ibuprofen. I hope that doesn't mess anything up.
My weight is heading in the right direction again, though I do have to play tonight. I imagine I will hit another little stall and get back to it by midweek. I don't have a whole lot to report today, other than I sort of have a headache and might try to sleep a little this afternoon. When I get headaches they are practically crippling and they tend to last more than just one day.
Not gonna lie steak day was rough. I made it through it though and guess what... I am back on track. I lost 3.8 pounds overnight. WHA? I think there maybe some scale issues here. So I changed the batteries and jumped on again. SAME! Looked at myself in the mirror for missing appendages... all there! I stepped on and off the scale like 4 times... SAME!
I actually gained a little from yesterday. And honestly I am really losing faith. I am pretty much starving myself at this point and I am not losing any weight. I have already lost of ton of weight so I don't want to seem spoiled, but I'm also really ready to get back to eating regular portion sizes. To get me through these last 10 days or so, I need to remind myself that, as with everything, there are ups and downs.
Well the coconut oil didn't really work. I am still at the same weight. I am going to wait a day and see if it makes a difference. So this is a short post cause nothing has really changed. I am a little dissapointed, but I still have my hopes up to reach my goal.
