All in Weight Loss & Exercise

I Love Bread

Starting with the holiday season continuing through the first four months of the year I fell of the eating right wagon. It wasn’t as if I was eating like an animal but I certainly was paying attention to my diet. Here I use the term diet to describe what I’m eating not to describe a method to to lose weight. I also continued to exercise regularly so I didn’t balloon up to massive proportions that I had in the past. The result was packing on 15 pounds from my lowest weight (which still has me down 50 pounds from my highest level a few years ago) but I was starting to feel uncomfortable so I made a change. I rejoined Weight Watchers.

The Common Cold

There are lots of things that can get you out of your normal exercise routine. I’ve certainly relaxed my self-imposed dedication when on vacation. Who doesn’t? Times have come up when certain work deadlines have dictated that I spend more time performing my assigned tasks and less time pounding the pavement. That will happen. Even weather events can slow down the exercise you want to get done. I certainly didn’t get to run as much last year when there was 36 inches of snow on the ground. These things happens. However, I don’t find any of these excuses as frustrating as the hurt your workouts can take when you become afflicted with that most annoying of illnesses; the common cold.

New Year, New Goals

It has been about 2 years and 4 months since I started my weight loss journey. Over that time, I've had ups and downs. I've had drastic weeks of weight loss and weeks of big gains. As of now I'm down 60 pounds from where I started which is amazing. I've become a regular runner and a regular at the gym. I've changed my eating and drinking habits. I'm very proud of myself.

Old Man...Weekly Weight Update

Getting old is a difficult thing especially when you are working hard to lose weight or at least keep of the weight you have already lost. I learned the terrible lesson this week that I have been joking about for years. I used to joke that I have been a 60-year-old man stuck in a younger body since I was 16. Finally, my body has caught up with me and I’m a 36-year-old man living in a 60-year-old body.

Formatting...Weekly Weight Update

The more and more I write these weekly weight updates the more I realize that the reader must be incredibly bored with the structure. At this point, you know I work out on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. You know that I usually run on Tuesday and Saturday and go to OrangeTheory Fitness on Thursday and Sunday. You know that I try to eat right (although this past week has been a bit of a stretch on that with Halloween and all) and we eat the same thing during the week. With that in mind, it is time for a change of format.
