Day 4 – Countdown to cheat day

Well I wasn’t surprised that my weight reading was not quite as much lost as initially thought. The new scale still had a lower amount that I originally began with so I am still down 3.5 lbs, and again, I have not seen those numbers for over a year, so it was nice to still be down. All that hard work of resistance is apparently paying off.

The new scale is pretty amazing. I had my husband step on it and calculate his body composition to test it out and his results were just ridiculous.  My husband eats out more than I can count and does not work out- at all.  His body fat is 13%. I was impressed… and once again, motivated.

Here are my tools:


The Four Hour Body by Tim Ferris- I downloaded mine on my Kindle but you can purchase it here: The Four Hour Body

The evil yet magical scale:  Greater Goods Scale

and my new 20lb. kettle bell: Kettle Bell

Meals for the day:

*Breakfast at 6AM – 1 egg, 1 cup spinach, 1/2 cup garbanzo beans.

*I woke up early due to my 5 month old baby actually sleeping until 5AM- unheard of. I woke up in a panic and once awake, could not go back to sleep.  You are supposed to eat within 30 minutes of waking up- this didn’t happen. I ate about an hour later.  But since you need too eat every 4 hours, my eating schedule was off for the day.

Brunch at 10AM – egg whites, 1/3 avocado, 1/2 tomato – i just couldn’t do beans again!

Kettle bell swing 2 sets of 20

Plank, side planks – 30 seconds each

Lunch @2PM – leftover shredded pork, spinach, garbanzo beans

Dinner @6pm – steak, asparagus, mashed garbanzo beans

I was more than excited for cheat day tomorrow. I was already planning my food though out the day, and my first plan of action after weighing myself was to have some chocolate.  I figure that is a great way to start my day.  Sweet dreams!
