Monday, I began what I call the DDR Diet. This is sort of an exercise regimen I’ve embarked upon. Here’s the plan, basically:

1. DDR for at least one hour every day. This is a pretty good workout.
2. Restricted to one large meal or two small meals per day.
3. Snacking is restricted to baby carrot, fruits, or water.
4. Water is now my drink of choice. No soda. OJ is okay.
5. I’m allowed 2,000 calories a week, I’m actually thinking about raising this considering the exercise involved.

Extra DDR is good, but when the dogs bark, it’s time to take them home. While an hour was sufficient, I’ve been pushing myself a little harder. For example, Wednesday I did 4.5 hours total.

As for food, it’s been pretty much that Subway sandwich thing for the time being. I actually did the research and figured out that the sandwiches are okay, like twice or three times a week at the outside. But the calories put together is too much over 2,000, if I were to eat them every day. With all due respect to Jared, I’d like to stick to my guns on this one. And I don’t even like Subway to begin with. I just get roast beef with mustard and lettuce, or turkey breast with just lettuce. Mustard and turkey don’t go together, as far as I’m concerned. I figured so long as I stay away from mayo, I’ll be fine. Otherwise, I can also eat salads, with chicken. Or make myself a hot dog (beleive it or not, a hot dog isn’t high in calories at all).

I’ve been drinking nothing but water all week. I have Pepsi’s in my mini-fridge, but I haven’t touched them. There’s also this Twisted Tea that Todd bought and left… but I’m not a big drinker, so, that’s easy to avoid.

Salt is also a big deal with me. Lower my salt intake helps me lose all the water weight I’m carrying around. But once that’s gone, then the real work begins.

I’ll start reporting weight and stuff here, soon enough. I have to buy a damn scale, first.
