Scratch Gets the Win with an impressive week on The Football Fan’s Diet.

Day PF PA Notes
Monday 10 0 Kicked ass at Club Julian. Over an hour on elliptical machine and even ran on the treadmill. Stopped on the way home and grabbed an Arby's Italian sub at 690 calories. Still, did not reach the milestone of 280s.
Tuesday 10 0 Yes, it was Taco Tuesday. Dad wasn't up for it because I left work late, so I had a few beers at the Highland Bar and then brought him a bevy of Tacos. They were good, but I recall how greasy the bottom parts of the shells were. Yuk.
Wednesday 10 0 It was Panda Express on McKnight Road for dinner. Dad paid; maybe he felt bad for skipping out on Tacos? This was a bad dynasty day as I was over my calories. To secure the win, I had to peddle my stationary bike for a half hour. But, myabe that is deserving of the Dynasty Day in that I didn't quit like a chump but did what I had to do like a champ?
Thursday 7 0 Torrential downpour and picked up a Sicilian Pizza from DiPietro's Pizza. This was the day I figured I was going to let go of the numbers and not obsess over them. Had a green juice in the morning, which makes this a Warrior's Diet day.
Friday 10 3 Unlike the Friday before, I had a good and decent effort. I had roasted chicken, broccoli for dinner and chatted with Steve the mailman who seemed impressed with my efforts. I also had wine instead of beer, which was a new one for me. More than anything, I cracked the 280s for the first time in a long time. Was not expecting to do that today.
Saturday 10 3 Golfed in the early AM, yardwork in the afternoon; pool party at night where the movie Coco was shown on the inflatable big screen. Of course, the YETI mug had beer in it. Smoked a cigar in the jeep in the back corner of the pool parking lot.
Sunday 10 3 Gym and pool with the kids. Dad come over for burgers on the grill and a few beers.
Total 64 12

“The Money Shot”
