A Sarcastic Chemist's Extreme Weight Loss Chronicle

A chronicle of the journey I am taking to become healthy.

Day 148-Back to the Drawing Board

June 2, 2016 by Staci | 0 comments

So today is June 1st, and I am back at square one, today I weighed myself at 392.6 lbs. Which is 0.2 pounds heavier than I started this journey…sigh. But I have a fitness tracker now and my new job makes me walk miles a day. I have a new simple workout plan which I started tonight. So now it’s really seriously and strictly back to the diet of eating on the edge of the grocery store. It’s going to be hard for a little bit because I still don’t have anything for the kitchen except a microwave. So I’m going to give myself a goal, everyday for the next week I’m going to post what I eat. Everything I eat no matter how bad. Hopefully knowing that I have to spread my shame on the internet will make it easier to put down the bad foods. I’m going to dive in hard with what I ate and drank today. And be forewarned I had Jack in the Box for dinner.

Breakfast-french vanilla cappucino and watermelon sour jacks 🙁 they are so deliciously addicting.

Lunch-spinach salad with low fat cheese, ranch dressing and croutons along with some cottage cheese. I bought some ramen noodles just to try and they were still just as disgusting as ever so I didn’t eat them.

Dinner-crispy chicken ranch club, small fries, 2 tacos, mini churros and a large diet Dr. Pepper. (so maybe I haven’t been very good on the no soda thing. Last one I promise.)

I cut myself off after dinner unless I am starving so if I eat something else I’ll edit the post.

Tracker for today, 6,021 steps or 2.8 miles, not too shabby for a girl who never walked at all at her last job. Literally my lab was across the hall from my office, a long walk was down the hall to the store room.

Here is my Week One Day One workout. I posted about it last week but I forgot to put the link to the actual webpage, sorry everyone. The blog is To Insanity and Back, they have levels 1-3, a 10 week workout plan, and a pregnancy work out plan under free workouts. Levels 1-3 are 4 weeks each, Coach Morris has them available to download as pdf’s. Level One is on my wall.

20 jumping jacks, 10 crunches, 10 squats, and 5 push ups. I thought the push ups would be the hardest, but it was definitely the crunches.


Last week I promised I would post the next book club book which was in my car, so here it is “The Sense of an Ending” by Julian Barnes.
