Just thought I would share that today I hit 294 which is down another 3 pounds. Maybe I can shed that 4 pounds by Sunday? Wishful thinking!

It has been a great few days as far as weightloss efforts go. I have been to the gym everyday, and eaten on plan each day! Mix that in with going to the Indianapolis Children’s Museum with my wife and kids and it adds up to feeling pretty good.
“We found that people who got more than six but less than eight hours of sleep, and who reported the lowest levels of stress, had the most success in a weight-loss program,” said study author Dr. Charles Elder.
It has been forever since I have updated! Sorry about that, this weekend I wasin a serious funk and took it out on my body as usual. All is better this week though. With just 6 days to go I am totally back on track, eating well, swinging kettlebells and finishing week 7 of couch to 5k. I will have a big post up for Tuesday, but I did not want to go another day without adding something about what is going on with me personally. Thanks so much for keeping up with me, I am still here and working towards my goals!
I finished a 25 minute run at 5mph and that has me pretty pumped. I was worried after not being able to finish it last week that I was going to have to do a whole extra week, but it looks like that was a fluke and I am going to be able to move on.
Hey, if you enjoy reading this site, I would greatly appreciate the support for my brother in law’s current furniture design he has submitted to a competition on Treehugger.com. He is a designer who graduated from the Savannah College of Art and Design and currently works out of Seattle. You can vote here. And a write up about it is here.
Not the worst day, not the best day, these are the days of changing my life. I had a good day mentally since I got to hang out with a couple of friends all morning. We went to have coffee at two different places and ended up going to eat at a Mexican place for lunch (I was good.) It was a nice break from my typical stay at home dad day. They are both stay at home dads as well so it is good to be able to have people that understand you can vent to. My only problem is that I did not go to the gym. So no formal exercise, but I will elucidate on the non formal exercising later. =)
Not going to dwell on it but last night I ate dinner to avoid eating out when we went to a birthday party out of town. Well that plan backfired as I ate off of a couple of appetizers and a small piece of birthday cake. I am once again disappointed and it seem like my blog is becoming a pattern of unhealthy choices rather than healthy.
