Quick Weigh In

Hello Everyone,

I've been so busy already this week that I completely missed out on my Weigh In yesterday so here goes~

Current Weight: 213.4 lbs (my new fancy-shmancy scale is working beautifully~)

Work Out Achievement(s): So looking at the scale yesterday morning I was actually kind of relieved it wasn't a higher number. Although I've been swimming I haven't been able to eat well balanced meals and had to eat out almost everyday last week.

Juan Pollo
Burger King
Panda Express

all fast food style chains and all calorie filled food that I could have done without but had to settle for since I was out in semi-civilization last week trying to get our work truck fixed.

Anyway this also means that I STILL haven't returned to jogging in the mornings because my mornings are now busy and to top it off I just started my second job...

at a Diner!

This is going to be tricky since this means that on Monday and Tuesday nights I'll be working and won't have time to swim, let alone being exposed to diner food all night during dinner hours.

I can survive this!!

This means that my swimming schedule will be changed and my temptation level is going to rise.

Let's keep posted on my progress. This is my first week with this new schedule so I'll have to see how it works for me and my "weight loss journey."

Besides that work is killing me. I'm sore more often, which I think just means I have to get my muscles re-adjusted for field work after my holiday snooze.

Wish me luck!

Goal(s): Ok so like I mentioned this new schedule and this new job is going to really challenge me so for this week I'm going to try to avoid eating diner food. Go back to cooking dinners for myself now that I don't have to be exposed to fast food, and try to re-start my jogging routine.

That's all for now folks. Hopefully I'll be able to make a nice interactive post later this week.

Till then!

Being at the diner will help build your strength when it comes to the oh so delicious and tempting yet not so good for you food. I like to know what's in my food so I avoid eating out as much as possible, but I know sometimes you can't help it. Why don't you try packing your lunch/dinner? That way you won't have to eat the food at the diner.
