Missed a few days on my blog... been busy over the weekend and yesterday.
Spent the weekend on the road at the Texas Motor Speedway for the NASCAR races and a big storm chase trip out to SW Oklahoma yesterday... This was my biggest challenge yet...
Surprisingly, I did very well, and found way to make my lifestyle changes work. I did have my favorite frosty beverage at the races, but only in moderation... the rest of the time, it was water, except for one diet coke... And I found that a smoked turkey leg had only 135 calories in it. And... If you peel the skin off, you take in less fat from it!! Otherwise, I stuck with a turkey sandwich and a good Chicken plate for dinner with some vegetables. Overall, I was proud of what I did.
Wasn't able to do a lot of cardio while at the track, but I kind of figured all of the walking you do around that place probably made up for most of it. I did weigh myself before I left and after I left, and found that I didn't gain any weight... So that is a success.
Monday led in to a pretty volatile pattern for SW Oklahoma, so the Tahoe was geared up and I headed out west!!! This took a little planning as my past meals on storm chase days consisted of Red Bull, beef jerky, and assorted (for more or less) junk. I carried some grilled chicken with me, and smoked almonds, and carried a lot of water, and did GREAT! That was a big accomplishment for me... And I couldn't be more happy with my progress.
All in all, this change is working out great! And after 4 weeks in... I think I can get where I want to be!
Until next time...
