Back To Phase One


Shortly after moving to Santa Cruz, my wife and I went for a hardcore health kick.
South Beach was the diet of choice.
Over a year ago I tried the Blogger Big Butt Weight Loss Challenge.
I started at 179 lbs.
Then we started Tri To Lose.
I started that around 172 lbs.
I finished at around 155lbs.
Then I slacked, not to mention the holidays hit and people brought by all sorts of goodies to the office everyday.
So Rachel and I have talked about going back to the first phase of the South Beach diet.
This morning I weighed myself.
It was depressing.
The outcome?
It hurts to type it.
I don’t know if I can do it.
168.4 lbs.


Back to phase one.
This time I’m racing all the way down to 150!
It was nice knowing you Carbs.
Anyone else add some pounds over the holidays?

*Disclaimer: While I will go back to hardcore dieting with some exercise mixed in, I am going here in a month and will be exempt for one week.  You can’t visit the south and not enjoy the food!

    In case you needed it…
    I officially give you permission to go off the diet during recreate.
    I was down to 163, but then started working out with my hardcore pro baseball player friend Jeremiah, and I’ve gained. 170. I tell myself it’s good weight. I hope I’m right.

    bro… the best thing I ever did was to start preparing for a triathlon… There’s another one in March, wanna join me?
    Exercise, exercise and exercise. You can’t keep the South Beach Diet up forever, but you can exercise forever.
    By the way, Vanus is moving back to Temecula… ;)
