Another Huge Milestone!

I had an absolutely fantastic weekend!  Friday night after work I weighed in at 224.4 pounds, which is 2.2 pounds down in 10 days.  I was very happy about that and headed home to eat dinner.  After dinner we went out and visited family and bought some Mega Millions tickets.  We sold our TV that was replaced by the projector to Ashley's grandma and I got it all set up in her bedroom for her.  Now she doesn't need glasses while in bed because the TV is big enough to see.  We headed home before the lottery drawing and had some fruit as a snack.  We didn't win the jackpot, but we won $6 dollars and broke even.

Saturday morning I made bacon and eggs for Ashley and I and then we had my grandfather over to see the new house and he really liked it.  After he left we headed out to a friend's house to sell him one of my old Xbox 360 games because his infant daughter broke his disc.  We then headed up to GameStop and traded in some old games so that I could buy Skyrim, which is something that I have wanted to do since November.  After GameStop we went and did some grocery shopping and then went home.  I made hamburgers and corn on the cob to help feed one of Ashley's cravings.  

After dinner I played Skyrim until it was time for bed and then fell right asleep.  On Sunday morning, I made bacon and eggs again and made myself a delicious omelet.  I  put a few pieces of pepperoni, cheese, hot sauce, banana peppers, and sweet pickles with 2 eggs.  Ashley laughed at the sweet pickles, but they ended up making the omelet amazing!  Ashley went to run a few errands and I went on what was supposed to be a very long bike ride.  I only ended up riding for 20 minutes because I got hurt, but I am okay just a little sore.  

When Ashley got home Ashley made chicken nuggets and tater tots.  We ended up hanging out while I play my Xbox in the living room.  I talked Ashley into finishing the blanket that she started crocheting for me a few years ago.  Then we made hamburgers and fresh asparagus.  It was the best asparagus I have ever had and the best burger Ashley has ever had.  After dinner we got showers and gave Gizmo a bath because he got into some stuff and was very dirty.  I did a few sets of push ups and crunches and I am now proud to say that I can consistently do 15 push ups at a time rather than 10.  I feel like I am gaining a lot of strength and my fat is starting to be less noticeable.  We took out the garbage and headed to bed to watch some TV.

Overall it was a great weekend and we wanted to "live it up" because our lazy weekends will soon come to an end.  Below is a little timeline of some of the key events in my Daddy Weight Loss journey.  See you all tomorrow!
