Yikes - the stress is HERE

Sunday, December 16, 2012

So it's been a week of work stress, to be quickly followed with a week of vaca (which will actually be a stressful for me). To help me out, the plan for the next week is:

Calories In:
*1400-1600 cal per day.
*No more than 2 beers, only on snowboarding days.
*Except Sat, where the goal is "moderation".

Calories Out:
*Lifting Sun & Mon.
*Run Mon
*Snowboard/skiing Wed - Fri
*10-15 min of yoga or bodyweight exercises on driving days (Tues & Sun)

Mental Game:
*Have FUN and not get competitive during the trip.
*Stop worrying about the future and just make each day awesome.
*Log in to SP for a few minutes on days when I have internet access.
*Weigh myself Monday 12/17 & Monday 12/23 and not freak out over what I see.

And here's my weight trend for the week: light blue is actual weight, dark blue is the trend-line for those actual measurements and red is the "goal" line to help me achieve 127 by February.

    I think you are pretty good at this video stuff. I get the feeling you're quite a perfectionist, which, by itself, can lead to a lot of stress. Glenn

    Vacations are a double edge sword. We need them, but they throw our routines out of wack. Hang tight, do your best, and LIVE.
