4.0 Ever

Saturday, February 15, 2014

So I weighed myself this morning (first time since initial weigh-in this year). Didn't expect anything good. Wasn't disappointed.

Dec 31, 2013: 205.0@22%
Feb 15, 2014: 207.4@23%

The four years I was active on this site, several messages were drilled into my head:
* Don't beat yourself up
* Tomorrow is another day
* You can do it.
* Bunny Rabbits can be really big

What I've found is that tomorrow wasn't ever much different. Apparently as I was trying to hit my goals, I couldn't do it.

At university, I did well because there were definitions and levels of success that combined being active in classes and actually performing when taking exams or writing papers.

So going forward, I'm going to establish a weekly grading system, that will include 4 factors.
* Diet
* Exercise
* Weight
* Body Fat

The first two I will obviously have more direct control over, but they should lead to the second.

I will blog about these over this week.

And yes, I reserve the right to be angry or angry at myself if I don't have a good week. I'm a guy. punching a locker when angry, metaphorically (*) is part of my job description. Yelling at myself that what I did was garbage and that I can do better is probably what I need more of.

(*) or literally if one's around. Locker had it coming :)

    I think you're doing great in terms of self-awareness, of setting goals and all the rest!
    You're setting an example. Success will follow!!!

    I know you can do it. You're unstoppable. Just not the type to throw in the towel. Ever.
    As for the last line...

    Attack of the killer rabbits! Wait, was that from SNL or Kids In The Hall?
    A man after my own heart. You crack me up.

    We are apparently aboard the same boat-
    a cruise to nowhere?
    Just had my 5th sparkaversary and I down maybe 12-14 lbs (at one time down 28).
    What the heck else can we do but keep trying?
    The medical-industrial complex can't figure out this whole wt loss (esp. Maintaing wt loss) either, so there is some comfort in that.
