Not Perfect. But Look at those Results!
Tuesday, March 03, 2015
The scale has been kind to me since I re-started Sparkpeople. It says now that I'm 21 lbs down from my mid-January weight. So... Yay for me. I also passed the 250 lb milestone (hopefully to never return). So I guess there's a lot of zeros in my plan at this point.
Now, I'm focusing on the positive but I can't ignore the places I need work. I still have an immense need to snack every day, after work. I haven't been able to conquer it every day but have at least improved the quality of those snacks at least half the time. I also can't help eating a bit too much at meal time. I serve myself a reasonable portion and then end up getting seconds or "helping" my wife finish hers. Or when I'm cooking, I take advantage of my right to taste everything. At least I know I'm not fooling myself.
Last, I am exercising more. It's still mostly easy, low impact stuff. I'm wrestling with Phil, the evil elliptical machine most days. He still has a potty mouth and is very rude but if I work in the morning, it shuts him up for at least a few hours. The doctor says I should try one of the interval workouts like 'Insanity' or something similar. I'm still a little leery of trying something that names itself 'insanity'. It's not like they don't warn you. Right?
I'll cut this ramble to a close with a joke I shared with my wife the other day...
ME - Look, I'm using the second to last hole on my belt.
HER - It kinda sounds like someone's bragging.
ME - Sorry. I didn't think I was being ambiguous.
