End of a great weekend!

First true test of this challenge came yesterday. My wife and I went to a good friend's anniversary party. I ate light in the morning and avoided a lot of temptation at the party. Stuck to a few light beers, veggies, cheese and a few shrimp. This was just the kind of event where I would cheat. I'd have non-light beer, chips, crackers, cake, meatballs. All of those foods where available, but I passed. I did see a lot of old friends, guys I knew from summer camp and college.....

I got a good upper body workout in yesterday morning. Worked on chest, abs and arms.

Today was a nice sunny day here, north of Boston. I went to my Father's house. I did a lot of outdoor work, raked some leaves, stacked wood and cut his lawn. Then I came home and raked some more leaves. We watched the Patriots win... My son called from Clemson U. He was excited that the Tigers upset the host Miami Hurricanes.

Not a bad weekend.

Day One in the Books!

Yesterday was the first day of the challenge. I am happy with the results. I ate well and I had a 40 minute cardio session. Threw around the football after work, adding to my calories burned. I use fitday to calculate.

1,767 total in

3,858 burned

2091 deficit

Looking forward to a good RT workout and maybe some cardio later.

Later tonight I am serving dinner @ the Boston Living Center. The Center is a supportive environment to those infected with and affected by HIV/AIDS.

Getting ready for the next challenge

Two more days until the "Classic" challenge. I am looking to give this everything I have.

Failure is absolutely not an option.
