Mad scientist

Thursday, May 23, 2013

Sometimes I feel like a mad scientist; constantly experimenting & trying new things (some of them a little wacky).

Today's WI wasn't bad - nor was it good. I doubt June will be a free month, but you never know. Weirder things have happened.

In the past, as I've mentioned, this would send me into a panic. While disappointing, I also realize it's not the end of the world. In fact, I don't need to experiment; I know what works. I also know it takes almost twice as long to take off the weight I put on; that's just how my body works - YBMV

What I do need are some shorter term goals:

1. Weigh & measure more. Especially protein! Often I can get away with eyeballing - most of the time, in fact - but if the weight is up I can't be so loosey-

2. Cut back on grabbing just a couple of nuts (or small piece of cheese - you get the picture) when I'm prepping food. If I want it, it needs to be weighed & measured. My Achilles' heel.

3. No sushi for lunch.

4. Wear skinny jeans at least one time. This has been hard lately because the knee brace doesn't fit underneath. But I don't need it as much & skinny jeans keep me focused.

I want to see a loss this week; I don't care how small it is!

I wore the brace for the dog walk this morning, but not running errands. I had it with me just in case. My IT band seemed achy today - right from wheni got up. Not painful or tight, just achy. I'm suspecting maybe it's the knee strengthing ST.


The Pilates didn't happen yesterday. Thunderstorms rolled in & Lola is afraid of them - she has an overpowering need to be with me & it seemed cruel to leave her by herself. No biggie, really.

Dog walk (done)
Run on treadmill 20-25 minutes - we'll see how it feels

    Why the heck not experiment! We have to find out own way with this, right?

    Cheers!! to a little insanity along this journey we call weight loss or life in general too. I have a soft spot for mad scientists! They make things happen! And so do you.
