Well I'm still sitting here on my plateau, looking up the mountain that I've still got left to climb. I wish my inner hiker would just get off his ass and start climbing again. I'm still eating well and I'm still getting my 1000 calorie burn almost everyday but nothing is changing. I was almost thinking of letting myself slip for a week so my body thinks it's going back to normal and then SHOCK it with the healthy food again and more exercise. I guess it's gotten used to the running and the healthy food. It's good to know that once I get to my ideal weight it will be easy to maintain. It's getting over this hump that isn't working for me.
Would someone please just kick me in the ass so I'll got to the gym, get the monthly pass and start spending time on the bikes and elipticals? I really don't know what's holding me back. Arggg...
I also had a bit of fun yesterday. My van was smashed up by a truck at the park and ride where I catch my bus. Some idiot decided to back into my van and park on my bumper. Apparently he forgot to put his parking break on and ended up rolling into my van putting a fairly good sized dent in my back hatch. Fortunately, some kind stranger reported it to the police and I was able to get all of the truck's info and make an insurance claim. I had to leave work early and deal with this mess yesterday. Not a lot of fun. At least it won't cost me anything, insurance wise.
We also had a showing yesterday which cut nicely into my exercise time. I tried to keep my calories down considering I couldn't burn anything yesterday.
I'm still recovering from the race...still.
Today will be the day I go to the gym and put in a few hours on the bikes. Maybe that'll be the shock my body needs to start climbing that weight loss mountain again.
Here's a picture of the damage to my van. Not very happy.
Thanks for reading.
