20th high school reunion on the horizon
Monday, March 11, 2013
Mission accomplished last week: Got a workout in 4X last week and did stellar on the nutrition front Mon-Fri! I relaxed a little on the weekend and had a few too many jelly beans and a brownie, and Sat. night I had a bowl of pasta later in the night even though I wasn't really hungry. So I slipped a bit on the weekend, but overall I feel I am back on the right path. The scale is up several lbs which I'm hoping fall off rather quickly as most of it should be water weight. It still sucks to see it jump up, though. Maybe I can remember that next weekend to help reign things in a bit!
It came to my attention this weekend that plans are being made for my 20th high school reunion this summer.
On one hand, I'd love to see everyone and catch up...on the other hand, I'm fat. I wasn't fat 2 years ago, I was in awesome shape. Why couldn't this reunion have come then? Or why could I not have maintained my fitness level and fat loss knowing that my 20th was only a couple years away? Talk about short-sightedness!
I've done the math, and I could realistically lose somewhere around 20ish lbs depending on whether the reunion occurs early or later in the summer. However, this still leaves me in fat-ville at roughly 180 lbs (my goal range is 140-150.) Gah! What to do about this situation? I don't want to skip the reunion just because I'm unsightly, but I want to go feeling successful and good about myself. I just don't know how this can be accomplished.
