420 anyone?

Hi People~

So I got on the scale today and it was a good number down 4.4 pounds, 36.2 for the summer and no I weigh less than 420 thats not why it's up there :) I just wanted to share my pre-weigh in ritual with you guys. I work out hard before I get on the scale, usually wednesday mornings. This was succesful in pushing the scale the first week but now obviously I have to repeat those seriously excrutiating workouts to have confidence on the scales. So I had my last meal yesterday around four pm( one four oz. hamburger patty, one sliced tomatoe, 2 ozs. of roasted new potatoes, 20 baby carrots and a few dill pickles.) Walked a couple miles last night at 9pm, swatted a few dozen mosquitoes, had a 10:10pm volleyball match that lasted around an hour. Woke up this morning at 6:45 am, did another 2 mile hike, drove to swimwest for an hour of circuit training. I had lifted weights the day before so during the weight section of the circuit I grabbed a 10lb medicine ball and did situps. 20 sets of 25 sit-ups and one set of 20 for a grand total of 420. I may have ab's of steel they are just hiding under a stomach of jello. Got on the scale at 10 am and then, of course, raced home to eat some food :)
Happy Independance Day to everyone, enjoys some fireworks, grilling and what not. And
of course a Happy 420 to everyone in every conceivable manner. Peace, Jim
