GHD 2012, Week 5
Monday, February 06, 2012 10:56 AM

Well this week didn’t start out so well.  I caught the flu my daughter dealt with last week.  It was miserable.  The upside I lost 5 lbs in a day.  But it wasn’t healthy weight loss I’m sure it was mostly water weight as I ended up extremely dehydrated and I didn’t eat for a day.  I loosely watched my diet this week, being GHD and all, and I skipped every workout this week.  It was basically a vacation.

GHD, if you don’t know, stands for Ground Hog’s Day.  It’s a day I celebrate with my friends every year where we take the day off and play video games.  It’s been a tradition for about 10 years now.  It started one year when Slaughter and I were living together. I didn’t feel too well one day so I called in sick.  I went out to the living room and started playing some Conker’s Bad Fur Day on the N64.  A little while later Slaughter stumbled out from his room.  I looked at him and asked, “You call in sick too?” He said, “Yep.”  So we sat around and played video games together all day.  It just happened to be Ground Hogs Day.  The next year we both just decided to call in sick on GHD and played video games.  Usually multiplayer games like Conker’s Bad Fur Day, Gauntlet Legends, or Perfect Dark.  Some years we got together and played Rock Band or we all met online and played Diablo II.  This year it was Gears of War 3 and we played it pretty much non-stop.  For me it was a 3 day event from the 1st to the 3rd.

So being sick in the beginning of the week and gaming for the rest, I didn’t succeed to well on my self-improvement.  But I’m not going to let that set me back.  I started Power90 today and will continue my year of self-improvement.

This weeks weight loss – 1.4 lbs for a current weight of 338.4 lbs
