Day 20

Weight: 179.7

Exercise: It was late, but I was able to get a 90 minute work out in performing squats, bench press and rows.

Breakfast: Bowl of shredded wheat with almond milk.

AM Snack: Bowl of Bob’s Red Mill Old Country Style Muesli.


PM Snack: Baked tortilla chips with cheese sauce #2 and a Kind Bar.

Dinner: Three broiled corn tortillas topped with cheese sauce #2 and salsa roja and a small mixed green salad with cabbage, carrots and almonds topped with Chef AJ’s Husband’s Favorite No-oil Dressing and Sriracha Hot Sauce.

Synopsis: There was definitely better ways to finish my 20 day potato hack, today was not a very good day. It started off as it had done the 19 prior days with a bowl of cereal, but I followed it up when I was at work with some muesli after realizing I had forgot my baked potatoes at home. The only option I was left with would have been to buy some white rice in Chinatown, downtown Oakland. I decided not to partake in the rice and wait it out until I got off work. I wasn’t overly hungry since I had eaten cereal and muesli.

My son and I had a 430 PM baseball game, which left me no time to lift weights and even less time to get something to eat. By 300 PM I was hungry and when I got home I realized my wife had eaten the 3 small baked potatoes for lunch. I had a handful of baked corn tortilla chips dipped in cheese sauce #2 followed by a Kind Bar, before we packed up our equipment and headed out the door. While at the game, I had the desire to chew sunflower seeds again through the entire game.

By the time we got home it was after 700 PM. I made dinner for my son and then went to the garage to get my work out in. I didn’t want to skip a day, as I did with running last week and figured I could finish before 900 PM. The work out went well, as I revisited a few weights I had done last time on the all three exercises. I was successful last time, but didn’t feel comfortable with the weights, so I did them again. Slow and steady wins the race, right?

It wasn’t until I was done that I was past hungry and the cupboard was nearly bare. Many different foods available, but not much that I could eat. I opted to broil a few corn tortillas with cheese sauce #2 and salsa on top and when I finished I threw together a small salad. As I said, not the best day to end my 20 days on.
