Weekly Menu 1/29 - 2/3

I've mentioned this whole weight loss challenge thing I'm doing right? Well, I guess now is the time to tell you that it isn't working at all. I'm quite confident that my metabolism has went on permanent vacation. For the past three weeks I've exercised almost daily and counted calories. When I've stood on the scale, the numbers don't move. Well, they did the one time the scale went kinda crazy and told me I gained 10 lbs. Then I lost 10 lbs. Then I was right at the same weight I had been all along.

In three weeks I've barely lost a pound. That's just ridiculous. So I spend most of my time wondering if I barely have enough time to relax after working/commuting 12 hours and making dinner, should I really take away any of my 2-3 hours of me time by exercising just to see absolutely no changes?  I really don't know.

The only thing that makes me feel like I'm burning a decent amount of calories is Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred. Lets first mention that in order to do the exercises I must have Jillian on mute so I don't off and haul my television out the window. Her voice is like nails on a chalkboard to me. Next we have the issue of running. I can't. Well, I can, but I can't do it without pain. You don't actually run in the 30 Day Shred but you pretend to kick yourself in the ass by bouncing from foot to foot. Unfortunately this creates sharp shooting pains in my shins after about 30 seconds.

So what would you do? Remain at a weight that you hate and makes clothes shopping without a tailor impossible? Or continue to exhaust yourself day after day by exercising just in case your asshole of a metabolism finally returns and decides to show some results?

This week I'm going to opt to exhaust myself. If, on next Sunday, anyone were to see a 30 Day Shred DVD soaring through the skies and hear a really loud frustrated scream, well, just know it was me.

Sunday - Pork with applesauce, barley mushroom saute and green beans 

Monday - Mushroom and Brie Soup 

Tuesday - Chicken with Roasted Pears, Wild Rice and Green Beans 

Wednesday - Risotto 

Thursday - Jalapeno Popper Chicken with Mashed Potatoes and Corn 

Friday - to be determined by Tom

For lunches this week I made a large pot of chicken noodle soup. Breakfast will be whole-wheat fruit muffins.
