4/27/2017 - 30 Day Challenge Day 2 - Supplemental

Greetings all,

An end to another perfect day.....well almost. I mentioned in the last post that I had an appointment. Well, I went to see the Doc about some pain in the heal of the foot. Wow, it turned out to be a bone spur messing around with the Achilles tendon. So I am in a bit of pain to say the least.

No more Trojan wars for me I tell you what!!!

So there you go. Pain does not equal "GIVE UP" or "CHEAP EXCUSES". For me it means: BATTLE ON!!!

LOOK-IT: These first few days on this experiment is a little dicey. Yes, I put on my Game Face, but..............

I did not let this physical set back get me down or to the point where I want to give up, No Sir/Ma'am not I. 

I have to be honest and admit that I am in a lot of pain, I mean big time. It got worse as the day wore on.

I am Staying the Course my Friends!!! 

Good bye until tomorrow: No Surrender, No Retreat and Always Battle On!!!

(ZC)er Move Forward
Cheers,

Dave

4/27/2017 - ZC / 5BD / Egg Fast Challenge Day 2

Howdy Family and Friends,

So far, so good! I will keep this a little short. I have an appointment this morning and I need to get outta here.

Results thus far:

(Please let me know if I mess up on my math below, I might add or subtract incorrectly)

DAY 1 = (0.0) = 00.0 lbs loss current weight: 185.0 lbs (out the gate)
DAY 2 = (2.0) = 02.0 lbs loss current weight: 183.0 lbs (talk to me)

I am feeling that little empty feeling again this morning. Yes, the one I had a hard time describing yesterday. That's OK, no worries here.

So two (2) pounds down, no big deal. As we all should know it is probably just my gut emptying out and some excess water weight. I really want to see what the weight loss will be on Day 7 or so.

Oh, I forgot to put my daily menu and intake at the bottom of the post yesterday.......sorry but it's been awhile y'all. It really should be the same everyday. Unless I decide to throw in the occasional Twinkies or cupcakes..........hahaha!!!

So that's it for now, until later tonight. Almost forgot I switched to two eggs instead of the 2-1/2 for ease. If I feel that I need to switch back, I will. No worries.

Menu:
B: Plain black coffee & H20
1st meal: 2 boiled eggs and 2 Tb of Mayo
2nd meal2 boiled eggs and 2 Tb of Mayo

Have a great day my friends and family. Live Long, Stay Strong and Always Battle On!!!

4/26/2017 - 30 Day Challenge Day 1 - Supplemental

Greetings all,

My Spirits are soaring, my Energy level is high ......... and I feel good if not GREAT!!!

I will be honest and tell-ya that although I was real enthusiastic about doing this 30 day challenge......well I thought for a moment: "What the HELL am I getting myself into???" OK, breath in, breath out, breath in, breath out......... Ah much better. LOL!!!!

So I panicked a little, jeez I am only human don't ya know? Or do you??? Just kidding. No, not about being human........uh........the panicking part......right?

Anyhow, I just told myself: "Now Dave, just take it easy and just do it. Yes, like the commercial." So I did just do it or something like that.....now I am getting confused. Somehow that just does not sound right.

OK, now Dave is talking to himself once again........this guy is just the..... I will just leave it there. HA!

Has anyone seen some marbles??? I seemed to have lost some or should I say a lot of them. Now where was I???

Yes, as I was saying: I kinda got cold feet, but only for a second or two. 

Back to the story: So I put on my best pair of socks and jumped right in. Yes, I jumped in the deep part. What the heck if I am going to do it....well might as well just do it right. I did not prepare myself in anyway. I just felt the time was right and there you go!

OK, this is sounding more like an explanation than a summery of my day. So back to business.

I do really feel good on this being Day 1. I do feel a little hungry, nothing major. Maybe just the thought of the amount of food I ate today has triggered so mental deal. Hey, like I have said in the past: I am no nutty professor, so I can't really explain those types of deals.

At the moment I think I feel.....lets see how to put it? Not exactly hungry, more like an empty spot in my tummy. That is a poor description, but it is the best I can do. 

At the end of the day: 

I Feel great

My Spirits are up

I have plenty of Energy

What more can I ask? I have the whole package my family and friends. Oh did I mention I am oh so HAPPY!!! That is the cherry on top....oops I mean that's the melted butter on the rib eye........

Like everything I do: I will take it day by day. I will try not to think too far ahead of myself. I am just happy posting again and do my little experiment. 

Have a wonderful: Morning, Afternoon, Evening or Night. It just depends where and when you are reading this post. I have readers from all over the world that visit this blog. Imagine that, this tiny unpublished blog is somewhat international. I have received emails from many different people from different countries either thanking me for this blog or asking for some advice. To them and all I say: I am here for you anytime. I may be slow to respond sometimes, but I always try to respond to everyone that writes me even if I am a little late.

4/26/2017 - ZC / 5BD / Egg Fast Challenge Day 1

Greetings family and friends,

I guess you may have noticed I started a day late, or did you? 

Well, I messed up a little yesterday morning and got up super late and did not have time to prepare my special Egg meal or weigh myself, so I thought "what the heck" and delayed it by one day.

That gave me time to scarf down some cupcakes, twinkes and wash it all down with some yoo-hoo chocolate drink..........ha, got ya again....did I? OK, maybe not.

So, today is officially day 1 of my 30 day challenge!!!

Results thus far:

(Please let me know if I mess up on my math below, I might add or subtract incorrectly)

DAY 1 = (0.0) = 00.0 lbs loss current weight: 185.0 lbs (out the gate)


I gotta tell-ya I am oh so EXCITED to see what happens. Yes I am indeed!!!

So far, just hours into my challenge I am feeling good if not GREAT!!! Hey does that sound like Tony the Tiger??? Oops, that is realted to Frosted Flakes..........Double YUCK to the fourth degree!!

I gotta-tell-ya my spirits are SOARING!!!!!!!! I have good vibrations all over my body! I am walking on Sunshine Y'ALL!!! Yes, I just might have to break out in song.......

"I'm walking on sunshine,

And don't it feel good!"

Katrina And The Waves - Walking On Sunshine:



Dang, I am out of breath dancing to the video.......hahaha!!!

Look-IT: I am bursting with ENERGY and EXCITEMENT!!! I just can't help it........no I can't!

Now where was I??? Oh, yes I will be reporting twice a day believe it or not. Once in the morning and once before bedtime. Just to let you know how I am feeling and to sum up the day. 

I will use the format that I used with the original Five Bite Diet (5BD) challenge I did a five (5) of years ago, jeez where did the time go??? 

Well, I am just chilling right now listening to my theme song: "Saved by Zero" by the FIXX. 

Alright that is all for now. I will try to post my first post of the day much earlier than today. 

Have a wonderful day my family and friends, Fight the Good Fight and Always Battle On!!!


(ZC)er Back in the BATTLE
Cheers,

Dave
