Back on the saddle again....
Wednesday, February 27, 2013
I think I have been off SP for about two weeks now. So lets get caught up. Valentines Day was horrible, I had to take my 1 year old daughter to the burn unit at our local Children's Hospital. She ended up placing her hand down on a hot stove eye right after my wife removed the skillet for our romantic dinner. She came out of with 2nd and 3rd degree burns but is doing great now. No skin-graphing or nothing. In the 2 weeks it has healed tremendously thanks to God's protection. Still a little sore but hopefully she will start using it more often. The following week I started feeling really aweful. Now I am your typical hard headed man who refuses to go to the doctor for ANYTHING. I made it to the gym once last week and did have the strength to go back nor could I even breath out my nose to get a running pace to save my life. We had a game the following weekend and with the wonderful amount of rain and cold weather I decided that, "Hey, its a great day to get the Flu." Well I am filling better now and since I am back to the office and breathing right it is time I get back on the saddle and head back to the gym.
I know I probably gained at least 5-10 lbs since 2 weeks ago but I am not going to think about the numbers and get back to the routine. I am so thankful that V-Day is over with and all the candies and sweets are gone. Don't have to worry about messing up my diet and think it is time to shock my body again to start losing some more weight. These next few days are going to really suck though since it has been a while since I worked out last. I can usually fight through anything but last week put me down for the count. I still worked but it was a a LOOOONNNNGGG week.
So I got 6 months to get myself in order and work harder at the gym. I want to have 100 lbs off of me by the first of may...that is only 25 lbs left to go. It is going to be a struggle but I know I can overcome it. I will be the first to say that I have lacked some motivation here recently. I have been going to the gym, eating right, day in/day out. These past couple weeks my motivation has been gone. I need to find new ways to get me pumped. Before it was seeing my waist size get lower and seeing my clothes get bigger. Now I need something else. Hopefully it will come before things get worst.
What worries me is that this is not the first time I lost a lot of weight. About 8 years ago I got down to a small size but (and as a matter of fact at this time of year) I just let it go and figured that I have it down. I started to eat more and unhealthier foods and before I knew it I was bigger than what I used to be. I don't want to see that again. I don't want my mind to be the disease that puts me back. So hopefully I will have a much better week at the gym and get back to my original plan.
