Gained a few in Saba.  Lost 2 of those pounds last week.  I could have lost more, but I ate like crap towards the end of the week, and had a pitcher+ of beer on Sunday.  Most of it was Coors Light, but still.  I tried running Sunday morning, but could only do 3 miles and change thanks to my left hamstring tightening up on me again.  My right ankle has been fine, but I was bringing an old piece of furniture to the curb on Sunday, and accidentally hit the top of my right foot.  I ran to the gym Monday morning and it felt fine, but it hurts to the touch.  I have less than two weeks before my Central Park 4 Mile Celebrate Israel race.  I plan to take it easy most of this week, get in a good run on Sunday, and kill it next week.  Sorry if it sounds like I am being self-loathing.  I’m not.  Just psyching myself up to do better (and to be more careful.)

In other news, I have had some friends ask me about losing weight.  For whatever reason they are reluctant to join Weight Watchers for Men.  I don’t know why.  I don’t even think of it as a diet.  It’s a tool to help you balance your food consumption.  I still eat a lot of the same things I was eating before – just less of it, and not as frequently.  To anyone out there looking to drop 5, 10, 20 or more pounds, I highly recommend joining.  It has helped me to remain focused (last two weeks not included), and in addition to these posts every Tuesday morning, it makes me accountable to someone/something other than myself.

You may notice the large pile of crap behind me in the top photo.  Yes, that’s still the pile I intend to post to eBay, or just to a SHOP page here on Crabapple (to start).  We have guests in town for the long weekend, so it would probably be in my best interest to try to clean up the room before then.  The weekend will also be a challenge as this is the first real holiday weekend since I started Operation Trim back in January.  I’m sure we’ll go out to dinner, and indulge in a few beers, etc.  Actually, I did that throughout most of April and May, and have basically remained stagnant for that period of time (mid 170′s) so I should be ok.  It will be fun.  What does everyone else have planned for the weekend?
