MAY we get back to our regularly scheduled program?

Thanks for excusing the crazy last week.  Last week was a whirlwind.  House listed Friday—we’ve had three showings including one this afternoon.

The last 5 days or so have consisted of some pretty poor eating.  I spent a good amount of the weekend feeling bloated.  After a while, food just didn’t taste as good as I thought it would.  I started craving the whole food I used to eat more regularly.  And while I was up past midnight last night (Mad Men, Game of Thrones, House of Cards),

I still made it to the gym this morning.

First time in over a week.  It’s not that I haven’t been active, but it’s time to get back to our regularly scheduled programming.   Gym sweat felt good—but the mid workout need-for-bowel-movement always is always a bummer (is that a pun?).

Had a solid breakfast to set up the day.  I feel the metabolism working.  Got to plan out a solid grocery store run.

The scale’s been packed up for about a week since we decluttered to put the house up for sale.  I feel like I am at 320.   I want to be sub-300 by June 1.

Even though I pretty much stalled on fat loss—I’ve added some muscle to my frame over the last couple months.  I’d like to continue that.

I’m getting back on plan because that has brought me this far.  Lean protein, whole grains, green veggies and some fun on the weekends. It worked—time to bring it back.

Thanks to everyone for the words of encouragement.  I was thinking about a guy who used to write a blog back a few months ago who was really gung ho for a bit.  He announced he was moving and he deleted his blog and never wrote again.  Stress can make this feel like this is not a priority—but it has to be.

30+ weight loss has bought me better fitting clothes, lower BP, more energy–-but I’m just nowhere near my goals.   I feel like I should give some rally cry but only cheesy ones are coming to my head.

  1. Hi Chris! I think food journaling is worth the 2 minutes per day that I spend on it. It keeps me honest to myself about my calories. A person can definitely overeat on healthy food, if it is too many calories per day.

    If I’m going to cut something due to time restraints, I’d cut gym (and yes, I have cut gym. I now only go to gym on the weekends) over food journaling. 2 minutes of food journaling is something that ANYONE can fit into their schedule, unless a person is too stubborn. :D

    Good luck with your home sale.

    :-) Marion

  2. Thanks Chris for being open and honest about your struggles. It’s an encouragement to me to see you not giving up when it gets really hard. Keep it up…you really are too acting me a lot as I try to lose weight as well. :)
