Last week was spring break at the school where I work. I find it difficult to log in and track when I'm not in the daily grind of the work schedule. Maybe it's because I can sleep in a little or maybe it's because I work twice as hard when I'm not working. This week saw me moving five cubic yards of dirt from my driveway to the foundation of my house in the back yard... with a wheel barrow and a shovel. (It was kinda like a work out :)). Point is, when there is down time at work, I can post blogs here and track my food and such, at home, I'm dirty and sweaty and don't usually spend much time on the computer. (I know, it all sounds like excuses).
Anyway, I kept working at it. I just didn't document. Luckily, I'm my only client when it comes to Sparkpeople. I can lie to myself all I want, I'm not fooling anyone.
On a positive note, I don't need to lie to myself. I kept losing and passed the 240 mile stone. Also, I should hit thirty pounds lost this week (I'm behaving food and exercise wise so there should be at least one more pound lost when the time comes for a weigh in.
Ohbytheway... I ended up winning the biggest loser competition at work before break began. It feels good because I won by .3 lbs and the other guy dehydrated himself and fasted for four days before the final weigh in. The only thing special I did was hold off on breakfast until after the weigh in. Hopefully I can stay motivated. Many times since January I have thought to myself, "I don't want to waste the entrance fee for this piece of pizza, pie, (whatever)"
So... aside from the regular boring of my life, things are going well. I'm 10 percent smaller than I used to be. I'm able to exercise more and harder and I will be needing to buy smaller pants really soon.
Happy April all!
Here's a joke I stole from a FB post...
A woman walked up to a little old man rocking in a chair on his porch. "I couldn't help noticing how happy you look," she said. "What's your secret for a long happy life?"
"I smoke three packs of cigarettes a day," he said. "I also drink a case of whiskey a week, eat fatty foods, and never exercise."
"That's amazing," the woman said. "How old are you?"
"Twenty-six," he said.
