Week 3 wrap up.

Sunday, August 17, 2014

I hop everyone had a great week. If not, there is still time to do something to make it great.

I had a challenging week this week. My son got sick and that put a wrench in my sleeping pattern. Then I woke up in extreme pain in my lower back. I decided to take 2 days off to heal up. Lot's of lying down and heating pads. I feel a lot better. Still stiff. The problems you face working out overweight. Back to my treadmill walks. And my extreme ping pong workout. Each Saturday I have been doing the 5K trainer on my treadmill. Still only walking 3.0, but the elevations are giving that extra push. I've done 26.91 on the treadmill in August. Not bad for just starting this journey. I'm down 12 pounds which is awesome since I've been going through with this eating foods I like and not going over calories. I have a cheat day on Saturday, but still haven't gone over calories between my food decisions and also the 5K's giving me extra calories. I hope everyone has a great week. Hit me up if you have any questions, or just want to chat.

A long video about my hiatus and some information on how I'm doing this now. Video quality sucks. Sorry about that.

  What a fun work environment. How nice to have chefs cook some great meals for you. Glad you are starting to get healthy when your son is young to lead by example. Get him involved in the kitchen helping your wife make healthy meals so that becomes the comfort food he remembers when he grows up.

Family bike rides are always fun. emoticon

glad the family is included on your healthy journey

My secret weapon/tool when family is involved is to not admit when you crave stuff or they will try to feed it. I learned that when I kept my craving thoughts to myself about foods then it would pass quietly without disrupting progress.

I know it sounds dishonest but it works in preventing a skid in your program.

This also is a good tool when smoking households take up the stand to quit.

New day. New outlook.

Wednesday, July 30, 2014

So here I am. Back again with my tail between my legs. Another failure down. It's all good. Because I'm here today. It's a new day.

This isn't going to be a long post, but I wanted to go over my plan. This time it's about ease. I'm easing into everything. I began eating healthier. Salad here, no late night snacks there, knocking out useless liquid calories. Then I'm walking on the treadmill for 20 minutes a night. I also play an intense ping pong variant that we created at my work. I play this during lunch every day. This isn't about losing x pounds or how many inches lost. It's strictly about just doing this, adding exercise as I feel I'm ready. My laid back lifestyle change. bootcamps, crossfit, this diet that diet. They work for people. Not me. I've failed it all. Now I do this at my pace and not worry about how fast or slow I'm losing lbs. I'll monitor so I know I am succeeding and not gaining. I hope thing are going well for everyone. I'll do a blog of what my last year has been. All leading up the happiness I'm experiencing. I hope you are all doing well. Have a great night and day.

Plugging along

Definitely doing things differently. I'm doing really well with my water intake. My main problem last time. I'm not focusing on how much water I need to drink each day. I'm just drinking water when I'm thirsty. It ends up being more than the minimum amount suggested. It also helps with my hunger. I don't feel as hungry as I used to. I need to workout more. That seems to be my downfall right now. It's mostly because I'm hurting when I do it. And when I'm done. It doesn't feel good. But that's only because of how out of shape I am. I'm working on taking care of that. I know how good working out felt. I'll keep on keeping on.

    Just build yourself back up where exercise is concerned. Ten or fifteen minutes a day for the first week or so is a good goal. Great job getting your water intake!
