Week 6 | February 21, 2012 | Weight: 287.6 | Loss of 4.8 lbs | Total Loss 23.0 lbs
Now that I have week 6 behind me, this also marks the point where I would like to start working out. As mentioned in my previous post, I'm starting up on the Kinect Your Shape game for Xbox. I fired it up this morning and entered my data. I did three 4-5 minute personal training sessions. I must say I worked up a bit of a sweat but I was feeling good. After that I decided to go down into the basement and dust off the Concept 2 Rowing machine that I bought a few years ago. Seems I had it in my head to try and lose weight before but clearly that was one of my many failures.
On Saturday, my wife and I decided to have a dinner that we haven't had in a while - Chateaubriand with Bearnaise Sauce. I love cooking this meal as the steak just melts in the mouth and the sauce adds a fine, tangy zing. We even ate it in the dining room for a bit of extra class LOL. The downside to this fantastic meal is the calories. I went over by a couple of hundred that day and so did my wife, but we continue to count and log our calories vigilantly. She lost a pound this week and I'm very proud of her progress as well!
More than likely, I'll try to grab some pecans for mine as the kids enjoy them with a small amount of chocolate chips. Topped off with strawberries and whip cream and you've got a real winning combination. I best get started on the calorie counting for this evenings meal LOL.
