As in I don’t even want to write this post. I want to go away, curl up in a ball and feel sorry for myself. I want to make excuses and throw a pity party for myself.
It was a bad week. But it was going to be a tough week under any circumstances. It was a travel week. A week when I’m with people I like but with whom I have to spend long hours sitting in meetings. So I ate a little more than I should, drank just a tiny bit more than I should and got basically zero exercise.
All things considered it could have been worse. Can you imagine how sick unto God I am of writing that damn sentence? I’m tired of this swaying back and forth in a three pound range.
There’s is not more travel in my immediate future. My birthday is coming but if I can control that to splurging at a single meal it can be OK. Most importantly it’s time to stop messing around on the exercise. The problem is, of course, that I don’t really enjoy exercise. It’s boring and particularly at first it hurts. I prefer exercise that takes me outside. Right now the temps are below 20 degrees with wind chills dipping below zero. So I need to work the inside workouts.
It’s doable. If I do it.
I don’t want to write that sentence any more.
Doesn’t change my resolution:
I will break through the milestone weight that keeps eluding me. I really want to do it before my wife comes home for her first visit (early February). So let’s set a solid goal. Past the milestone by my birthday, February 9. Here we go.
