Not ready to squeeze into that wet suit just yet

Friday, June 15, 2012

Here it is mid-June and the vacation pounds I gained last April are still with me....and then some. My "healthy weight" is 165 and I somehow managed to hit 179 and I know that come hell or high water I wasn't going to get to 180. I always thought 170 was my maximum I would allow, but I kind of blew that one out of the water. How did I allow this to happen? I've been working out hard every day for at least 30 minutes and I thought I was watching what I was eating. But then I realized that I stopped tracking all my meals. Big mistake! I always thought it was a pain to log every little thing I put in my mouth, but I can see now that it really makes a difference. For the last 2 days now I've been diligently logging everything I eat and I've dropped a half a pound. I know it doesn't sound like much but I'm at least heading in the right direction.

I was supposed to go diving this weekend, but it didn't work out so instead I'll be going the weekend of the 6th. That gives me 3 weeks to make getting into and out of that wet suit a little easier. Yeah!!!!

    I've had a goal of buying a wetsuit when I got to my target bodyfat of 24%. I got as close as 26%, and now I'm at 28%. Grrr! I need to get back on track, too.

    Have fun on your dive! There's no diving emoticon, so this will have to do! emoticon

    I agree about getting into and out of the wetsuit. That is part of the reason I have decided to not haul our dive gear to Minnesota next month.

    Way to write what you bite, ScubaDiva. Jealous of your upcoming dive. Enjoy! emoticon
