Look, things need to change. And they need to change right now. Thankfully, with all the crap I've been through this year, I haven't yet managed to gain a crapton of weight. That's a plus. In fact, I weighed in this morning at 309.6...which is about what I started this year out as, so we've had a year of yo-yo, but at least I'm keeping things in check for the most part. The only thing is, I'm tired and I want to get off this ride.
So I'm starting over.
Back to the beginning.
Step 1 only, before on to step two.
I already know this week is going to be crazy. I need to prep for probably the biggest interview of my life so the stress is going to be through the roof. My foot still hurts a lot too no matter how long I wear this insert for, so I don't even know how much the custom inserts are going to work or when they'll come. I can't count on anything except this - I will look, listen, and pay at least a little attention so that when the dust settles I'm ready to start again.
I'm going into this with the same mentality as I had in 2010. I don't know what's going to happen. I don't know if it's going to work. I just know I'm going to try. And I can't jump right into 5 day a week 1-hour workouts at the gym killing myself and eating 1200 calories hoping to make it through the day without killing someone. Right now, I can't think about restrictions. I need to only think about one thing this week and, I hate to say it, my health and well-being in the long run is not it.
Step One - Log everything.
That's all I'm requiring myself to do right now. Log everything I eat. I don't care how many calories it is or what kind of food. I can't think about that right now. Just log it so I have a new foundation to start from and get back in the habit of being accountable and logging everything.
Starting Weight: 309.6
Goal for the week: LOG EVERYTHING
No current weight goals.
