Wonderful time to not be asleep. No facebook to placate myself with and a change from losing weight to maintaining. I'm not comfortable with having to change my eating habits to accommodate an extra 600 calories a day. As it is, I struggle with eating within my range on carbs and regularly go over substantially. But as an above active male, I do burn alot of calories and carbs daily between work (relatively physically strenuous) and walking + gym time. I've been doing this for months and it doesn't seem to have affected my weight loss journey.
I was going to bring something else up but it seems to have left the building. Reminds me of the replays of the JFK documentary on NOVA about his assassination and the replay of his brain being splashed in the air. Slightly morbid but it is how I feel on the ideas or important things that enter my brain and just seem to force their way back out in rapid succession.
I had a long few weeks at work. One involved my promotion and a very nice raise. On that, I do the same things I used to with very minor traveling. So far no more than 1 hour a week. It will change as i get a replacement for my original position and I start traveling to more of the stores in my area. 4 main and 6 or so minor ones. Nothing I can't handle but it does involve talking to other people which I would really rather not do. The second one was I had injured my thumb on a 15lb metal plate. Deep bone bruise I think. Still painful after 2 weeks.
My ass hurts from spin class earlier but I think I enjoy doing it once a week. I get alot of cross-training from that, treadmill and elliptical with some weight training thrown in. I still feel like I am "floating" here on spark. The term makes sense in my head but it is difficult to explain.
I have switched to maintenance but I still think I will continue to lose some weight and since my BMI is at 25.3, I figured by the time I stabilize and find that happy medium, I will b in the 160-165 range. I'm happy with that.
