Here we are – another week, another disappointing weigh-in. I lost .2, which is better than losing 0.0 (or gaining), but I feel I
should could be doing better. I haven’t been sleeping very well, and therefore have not been hitting the road or the gym early in the morning. I’ve been going in the evening – which isn’t bad, but with the heat the runs are more tedious, and the workouts more crowded. Plus, it’s summer and our social activities have revolved around outdoor eating & drinking. This past weekend we stayed at my parents’ for a night. Dinner was BBQ, breakfast included a bagel, and lunch was more BBQ. That evening we went to a friend’s pool. There was beer, pizza, and other good stuff. I (sort of) took it easy on Sunday and Monday, and even got in a short run last night, but here I am with not much to show for it.
I know that part of the reason for this plateau is my recent eating & drinking habits. I mean, how could I not want a G&T at the end of a long day? Kristina also thinks it’s my body telling me it’s at a comfortable weight, and doesn’t need to go any further. I’m not so sure how I feel about that. I think I can still drop these last 12 pounds.
I’m not going to say that this week will be any different. I have a work event tomorrow night, then a rehearsal dinner & wedding this weekend. There will be lots of great food and drink. If I can maintain this week, then lose a bit next week, I will be very satisfied. And if I don’t make my goal of 160 by September 21st, so what. The real goal here is to stay healthy – keep exercising, and make it through the holidays without gaining. Hitting the goal weight is important, and I will get there.
