Day 2

The binge cycle continues. Like any sinful indulgence, it is not as satisfying as I had made it out to be in my mind. Another morning, another breakfast burrito. Some co-workers who know what I'm doing met up with me for Up-Chuck-A-Rama for lunch. Not awesome. I have been to Chuck-A-Rama at least a dozen times in my life, and have never had a good experience. It was so bad I didn't even really try to overdo it. It was horrible. One plate of "entrees" and one plate of fruit and dessert. Luckily my lovely wife texted me that she thought we should do a Farewell Fatty/Valentines Sushi night. Of course we hit Sushi House(Denny's Sushi) for the all you can eat. Between us and the Orr's(Canadian migrant worker couple) we pounded eight rolls. I think I'm done for the night, but there are cinnamon rolls on the counter.
I'm gonna call this a 3200 calorie day.
Failed to report on exercise yesterday. Day 1 exercise was spin class (1 hour, sweating with spazzy menopausal women) Today, I skipped working out all together. Jeff went. This is possibly going to turn into a weight loss contest between he and I. That might get exciting.
As a side note, I got a genuinely concerned call from my buddy Cobourn last night telling me I was going about this all wrong. He's probably right. I'm sure no physician in his right mind would recommend starting a diet and exercise program with a four day food orgy. Cobourn has lost twenty pounds over about four months by cutting carbs and fats, sitting on the trainer and drinking himself to sleep each night. Different strokes for different folks. He offered to send me some info that he has been using, but I haven't seen it yet.
I don't feel like what I'm proposing is incredibly drastic. 1500 calories/day isn't really starving. If you do it right, it can be a lot of food(leafy greens, fruit, etc.) Cobourn seems to take exception with using Hydroxycut. I haven't really decided if that's what I'm going to do. It worked for me in the past, so that's what I thought I'd do. If nothing else, it turns your urine exotic colors.

Morning Weigh-In:
  • 197 lbs
  • 27.3%


  1. 8 rolls? Jolene and I can put away 8 easy, more if we're on our game.

  2. These were "premium" rolls. And Jeff and I ate the bulk of them. Kellie is still sort of a newbie when it comes to sushi. I think maybe that new leg of Jolene's is hollow.
