WEEK 12 - Paying the Piper

WEEK 12 | April 3, 2012 | Weight: 270.3 | Loss of 0.1 lbs | Total Loss: 40.3 lbs

I am both amazed and not surprised by this week's weigh in.  Let's see, where to begin.  Well first on Thursday evening we had a ton of things to do so getting home to cook was just not in the cards.  I ended up eating a Momma Burger combo at A&W.  Then of course on Saturday, I ate smokies, salmon, steak, baked potato and cheese toast in large portions.  Then there was the copious amounts of alcohol in the company of some great friends.  Not to mention the wife's chocolate fountain.. yikes!

To add fuel to the fire, Sunday was worse with deep fried fish and chip takeout with gravy and deep fried coconut shrimp, followed up by a chocolate brownie explosion from dairy queen and finally to end the evening off with pizza!

I feel so dirty LOL.

I certainly call this a cheat weekend and happily it was all planned.  My wife and I decided that we would have a weekend where we could eat whatever we wanted as long as we logged everything we ate.  After 3 months of doing so well, it was time for a break and you just have to do that once in a while.

Now it's back to home cooked meals which I still love to cook and eat and workout up to 40 minutes now in the mornings.   20 on the rower and 20 on the elliptical.  Oh, and I finally got my treadmill.  We were shopping around Canadian Tire and decided to grab the Tempo 632T Treadmill.  It was on sale.  I spent most of last night putting it together and it works just great.  It'll come in handy for the cold rainy days we get.


  1. That sounds like something I will most likely do once at goal. I think it's good to treat ourselves now and then. The food sounded yum!

    1. It certainly was yum! Though I felt pretty guilty later LOL.

  2. Wow, all that and you *STILL* lost weight!?!? NICE! :)

  3. Yup. We did a zig zag the week before. Basically ate 200-300 calories UNDER our normal daily intake from Monday to Thursday (I dropped 2 pounds during the week). In the end I went over by about 800 cals for the week and gained about 2.5.

    That said, I figured most of it was sodium and this morning dropped 2 pounds again.
