Justin Hall's Blogurrito Home of the Chipotle Diet!!

A lot of people have wondered if I have fallen off the face of the earth.  Well I have.  Damn that Columbus and all that 'world is round' talk.  Actually, I just have been really busy between work, school, and two little girls.  As it turns out, finding out the world is flat isn't the only discovery I have made.  Somebody forgot to tell me that children are logarithmic.  By that I mean, messes, crying, and toys to name a few, do not double, they increase exponentially.  However, despite all the recent changes, a couple of things have remained constant in my life.  The first is burritos.  I haven't sacrificed anything on the Chipotle Diet.  I still continue to enjoy my chicken fajita daily.  Just ask my local store manager, Jeremy.  The second thing unfortunately has been my weight.  It has been two months since I have lost 60 pounds, and I still have lost 60 pounds.  That's right, I have officially hit my plateau.  The good news is that I haven't gained weight.  I literally have fluctuated +/- 2 lbs the last 8 weeks.  This has left me to contemplate my next move.  Thus, I developed three options:

1)  Put an end to burritos and the Chipotle Diet altogether.  Go to lighter eating and start a new chapter.

2)  Change my burrito to something smaller, perhaps a burrito bowl or tacos.

3)  Start exercising.

Since day one, my diet has revolved around the giant burrito, thus I had to eliminate option 2.  Plus Eric Foster is already doing that.  Not original.  I was now left me with options 1 or 3.  That's right, start exercising or give up the Chipotle Diet altogether.  I know eventually the diet will have to come to end, but I didn't know if I was quite ready for it to come so soon (8 months).  So before I made my decision, I first had to answer the question of how long I wanted this diet to go on.  A couple of weeks ago, my wife answered the question for me.  We have officially planned our first family vacation; Destin,  FL.  The same Destin, FL that has no Chipotle for miles.  This vacation would mark my first week ever where I couldn't commit to a minimum of 5 burritos.  Not Cool.  However, the vacation will be the first week in July.  This gives me four more months of the Chipotle Diet.  Therefore, I have chosen option 3 and will remain on the Chipotle Diet for 1 year, until July 1st.  1 uninterrupted year of giant burritos.  I don't have a set weight goal in mind, but I have set an aggressive workout goal ahead of me to obtain the best results possible in the last 4 months.  I joined a gym last week and I am working out 1 hour a day for 6 days a week.  3 days I am running, and the other 3 days I am lifting weights.  My goal is to not scare my children when I take my shirt off at the beach.  Let's see where this journey now takes me!!

Justin - After losing 60 pounds, I plateaued as well. It turns out, my body just didn't need as many calories as it used to when I was carrying around all that extra weight. I chose one item to drop from my burrito...the cheese. This saved me 220 calories per day. That did the trick! I started losing weight again.

I'm sure you don't need the same amount of calories that you used to either. You might want to try to drop an item. Or do half cheese, half sour cream. or whatever. Or get one or two bols a week.

DON'T GIVE UP!! I'm taking my shirt off at the beach this year. You should too.

As much as I think the Chipotle Diet is ridiculous, I am VERY happy that you are going to start exercising. I have just started myself. Your regime is a little intense, don't burn yourself out, or you might not stick to it! Congrats on the 60 pound weight-loss, I am jealous!

¿А si mirar detalladamente como si esta idea se veía si había todo enfrente?? Indudablemente, el tema de valor, pero temo que conservando propias observaciones nosotros no ayudaremos..

C'est la vérité que par cela tu n'effraieras personne. Voici il est intéressant seulement comme il sera plus loin. Si Навряд tout sera de même que maintenant.
