Archive for August, 2011
So my last post mentioned that I did a kettlebell workout at home right? Well that one workout had me sore and near unable to walk until SUNDAY! Bad news for working out, but the goods news is I have been on plan eating at or below 1800 calories even with heading out to some restaurants.
It has been going well. I have not had too much to report the last two days. More unexciting getting to 1800 calories in not the best way sort of things. I am making slow progress and this is all about the journey right?
Well August 6th and 7th were a little bit off the normal eating for the week. It was my son’s 5th birthday so I had a special permission to eat some cake and whatnot on Saturday from my wife. I really did not eat too well that day considering we had the party catered by a good BBQ place. I had a piece of cake and enjoyed it thoroughly. I have to say that overall even with Saturday and some poor choices on Sunday it has been over a week now since I have binged and that feels great.
It was mostly a good day today except for my workout. I almost passed out during my cardio this morning with my trainer. She looked a little worried. I felt a little loopy, and I think it was because I was slightly dehydrated and I had missed my blood pressure meds. Such is life when you miss things like that I guess. I had a decent workout, not what I really wanted. As luck would have it I had a doctors appointment and talked to the doctor about changing some medications around and am pretty optimistic about some of the decision we made.
It was a good day as far as my diet went. I kept myself in line and got to my 1800 calories a little faster then I wanted to thanks to a visit to Applebees with my wife and some great soup and salad time. It was good though to balance my eating as opposed to ignoring the problem.
Things today are better then they were on Friday. I have been binge free since Friday and on a steady 1800 calories a day eating plan which has been working. What is making it work up in my mind right now? I bargain and a promise I made to my wife in exchange for a nice gift. We came to a deal that I got to get something I thought was cool and in exchange I would promise to stay on a MINIMUM 3 day a week workout plan with an 1800 calories a day diet. Why is this working for me?
