grdell's Weight Loss Blog - Week 9, Day 5
« Reply #125 on: July 29, 2011, 09:11:46 AM »
Okay, a lot has happened these past few days which is what has caused me to not post. But, on the flip side, I am 100% positive that it will help out!

I finally got a job! The reason this will help is that it provides the external structure of regular hours upon which to hang my gym time and my diet considerations.

Today's workout on the Gravity machine was good, but my eating habits have been all over the place these last couple of days... I've been "celebrating" ever since I got the news. Well, can you blame me? Being unemployed for six months is pretty damn stressful and the magnitude of good news is going to have its effect, too.

I start next week, and that means that spotty gym attendance will be fixed and my diet will be forced back on track. I expect that solid results will soon follow. Week 11's first post will either bear me out or make a liar out of me. We'll find out together!

I'd like to think of this as "Phase 2" or "Stage 2" or whatever term you want to use. I am back on track with a vengeance now that I have a framework to give structure to my life again. So I'll start off with revised starting figures:

Weight: 218 pounds (down 12 pounds from the original start 9 weeks ago)
Waist: 46 inches (down two inches from the original start)

I did a full cardio workout this morning which I haven't done in a while and am sticking to my diet come hell or high water today and the rest of this week. Last week I really went crazy celebrating the new job by overeating entirely too much and now I have to make up that lost progress.

Here we go again. Hopes high. I am GOING to make this work.

Yes, I haven't posted in a while. Yes, last week was a mistake and a lot of assumptions were made. Last week was insane busy with it being my first week back to work AND tech week for the play. But now the play is over and I can settle into the routine I really wasn't ready for then.

I began interval training to improve my cardio strength today. Yes, today and not yesterday. Why? Because yesterday I needed a day of utter and absolute rest after the weekend.

So yeah. Interval training. I knew about it, but I didn't know how hard it really is. I sweat like a fiend. I'm hoping to achieve good results, though, if everything I've read about it is true. Plus, my new job is on the third floor, and I prefer to take the stairs. Every little bit helps, after all. So, results posting as they happen, I promise.

You'd be surprised how much those little things add up.  I convinced my roommate to tally up how much sugar she was actually using in her coffee, and the number scared her so much that she started cutting back - now down to 3 tbsp a day.
