Week 5, Day 1 plus weekend update

by on Apr.07, 2014, under Damon, DDPYoga, Evie

The weekend was pretty busy as I suspected.  Friday I was going to smoke a chicken and completely forgot and then had to take the family out for dinner.  We had smoked chicken anyways, but it was from Babe’s Chicken House.  Very yummy stuff and quasi healthy right?  I did have a biscuit with butter and honey, but also had salad, green beans and corn.  Had a small serving of mashed potatoes as well.  Yummy stuff.

Saturday morning we had a picnic and while the weather didn’t hold out well we brought some leftovers and ate well.  We went to a birthday party after that and Evie and I each had a small slice of cake to celebrate.   We got home and did our Fat Burner workout.  For dinner I had avocado, onion and chicken salad.  Great stuff.  We watched Below the Belt to get an idea of what we were in for on Sunday.

Sunday we took the kids to see Disney on Ice at the American Airlines Center.  Healthy food options were not available there.  I snacked on a hot dog and shared some popcorn with Evie.  For dinner our friend Dayla made taco salad.  Good stuff but I found out later she used Catalina dressing in it, which I’m sure was loaded with calories and high fructose corn syrup.  We also did Below the Belt for the first time.  Burned nearly 500 calories and wore me out.  I was drenched with sweat by the end and shaking.  Went through a whole glass of water through it and then refilled it and drank some more.  Fast paced and challenging for sure.   Had to modify a bit at the end but we did it.

I’m down a pound today, which is nice.  Evie has continued the slow drop of weight as well.  People have noticed the change and I can even see and feel the change in myself.  Today we did Energy! as our workouts will start to intensify.  Here’s this week’s schedule:

Monday – Energy!
Tuesday – Energy!
Wednesday – Fat Burner
Thursday – Fat Burner
Friday – off
Saturday – Fat Burner
Sunday – Below the Belt
