Let the bad times roll...
2 steps forward, 1 step back; 1 step forward, 2 steps back... This would be more fun if it were a tango.
Here's this weeks numbers:
Weight : 217.4
Gain : 1.4
Total : 102.6
Up again this week. I really need to get my head out of my proverbial backside and get back to doing the things that I know worked for me in the past. My diet has been terrible, mind you I have been keeping total calories in range, but I'm eating junk. I haven't been to the gym in more than 2 weeks, even though the pain that I had from toes on both feet has subsided (mostly). My not going to the gym has been because of 2 things, 1) being lazy and 2) it's been real cold (California cold, around 35 F at the time I usually go to the gym). The cold just reinforces the laziness, makes me just want to stay curled up in my chair watching episodes of Chuck on Netflix.
So this coming week I am going to TRY to clean up my diet and TRY to get to the gym. I know that if I can get my sh!t together I can get back on track. Problem is that my head seems to be spinning out of control, making it difficult to get anything done.
I guess time will tell if I am able to pull it together or not.

So, if I want to post a loss, all I have to do is have a nice big gain first ...
Last week's gain of 5.4 lbs was bad, very bad. In my mind I saw myself losing 6+ lbs this week, more than enough to make up for last weeks gain. Of course that is not what happened, but still I got to post a decent loss.
Here, see for yourself:
Weight : 216.0
Lost : 3.2
Total : 104
A loss of 3.2 lbs is awesome, of course it loses a bit of luster when compared to the 5.4 lb gain last week. But at least I lost more than half of what I gained. Now hopefully I will lose some more and maybe get back to under 210 where I was a few months ago. Breaking my hand was certainly the harbinger of bad news for my weight!
I'm going to keep my blog short this week, I don't have any pressing need to write too much so I'm just going to go ahead and stop it here.

Ah, what a craptastic week!
After losing 1.2 lbs last week, My subconscious must have decided that it was time, once again, to go the other direction.
Happy Thanksgiving? Your results may vary.
Drove 1.5 hours to my brother's for Thanksgiving. He and his girlfriend got all of the food a day earlier at Marie Callender's (fairly high end restaurant). Everything was then heated up the next day. It was all pretty good too, but I'm guessing that it was pretty well laden with sodium since my weight went up over 4 lbs on that day alone (and no, I didn't eat anywhere near 4 lbs of food!) In fact, I kept my calories below 2,500 on turkey day.
Weight : 219.2
Gain : 5.4
Total : 100.8
Adding to the week's fun was the fact that I seem to be having a bit of a mental crisis. As another year comes to a close, I am no closer really to finding a job, which I desperately need. On top of that I seem to have a touch of the ADD because I can't concentrate on a career choice. I will have one thing in mind and I will research it like mad, dig up lots of information on the job and begin searching to find it, where ever it may be. But after a week or so, I seem to find something else and the previous job I was looking for holds no appeal for me, this process keeps repeating, driving me a bit mad.
As for finding just any job, I have to fairly picky. With herniated discs that have caused nerve damage, very worn out knees and bad shoulders, not to mention nerve issues in my arms from the shoulder injuries, I have to be careful what I do. I need a job that doesn't have me on my feet all day, or sitting all day. I need to be able to get up and move around as needed but also be able to sit down to work when my back tells me to. So as you can see, it's a bit of a quandary. Owning my own business was perfect because I could do what I wanted, when I wanted. But that life has been gone for 5 years now.
Okay, that's most definitely enough whining for now. It's time to go take my son to lunch and start putting this week behind me.

Time marches on. Time waits for no man. Time is on my side?
So I have survived yet another week, and I hope you all have done the same. Last week was truly a forgettable experience with a 2 lb gain, yet I still haven't forgotten it. Stupid human memory! Interesting side note: people often "drink to forget", but did you know that drinking alcohol actually burns memories deeper into our conscious? It's true, unless you black out from drinking, then you will received the original desired effect.
But I digress...
So this week went a little better than last. I was able to post a loss. Of course not as much of a loss as I would have liked, but then again perhaps I shouldn't have had bacon and eggs for dinner last night :) The house still smells of bacon by the way, 21 hours later :)
So here's the numbers for this week.
Weight : 213.8
Lost : 1.2
Total : 106.2
Yep, 1.2 lbs lost this week. I'm sure it would have been more, but I really enjoyed the bacon and eggs, oh well.
That's all to report for now. I hope you all have a great rest of the weekend.

What a week, huh? I don't know about all of you, but if I could turn the clock back and do this week over again, I just might do it.
Wait, I take that back. I suppose if something awesome had happened to me (came into a bunch of money, did something heroic, or met a stunning blond (or brunette or redhead, I'm not picky) that was totally into me) then I might want to re-live the week over again. But nothing awesome happened to me (I am quite the antithesis of awesome). In fact this week kind of sucked, I'm glad it's over.
I gained again this week. Just as I was getting used to accepting the small losses I had been accruing, life decides to not allow me to have even a small loss. Such is life. Part of the reason for this week's gain is due to the fact that I'm a sucker.
You see, no matter how broke I am I always buy tickets to fund raising dinners. Usually the kind where you drive up and pick up a Styrofoam container that has a bunch of food in it. Anyway, this is what I ate on Thursday, Portuguese linguica and beans and a roll. I was doing alright until that meal.
So here's the numbers for the week.
Weight : 215.0
Gain : 2.0
Total : 105
Yep, a 2 lb gain this week. It sucks, but there's nothing I can do about it now. So it's back to work tomorrow and see if I can't put a dent into this gain by next Saturday.
Have a great weekend everybody!
