A Good Week, A Bad Week

This week I stuck to plan. I had plenty of opportunities to mess up to. Driving around the state to multiple business meetings I passed many fast food havens. I have to be honest, the thought occurred to me on several occasions to stop in for just a taste but then I thought about all the calories I would be ingesting and it turned me off. I was able to control strong urges that a few weeks ago I would have given into. This is all good.

The bad side of the week is my exercise commitment. I have not lived up to this and I'm really pissed at myself. I've been busy as hell with work but that is no excuse. I have to get active in order to keep the solid losses going each week. I can put aside 15 minutes a day to move my ass. I have to figure out a way to get this into my daily routine.

Here's what I'm going to do. Tomorrow morning after I weigh in I'm going to spend 15 mins with EA Active before I do anything else. Each day I'm going to work these 15 mins in as the first thing I do each day. I see this as the only way to make this a habit. I'm going to put a recurring event in my Blackberry as a reminder. If I let it go until the afternoon or evening I never get to it. Hopefully, this will work.

Weigh In tomorrow... looking forward to that post!



  1. good job on your eating! Traveling and eating is the worst!

  2. Like you say, you've just got to make it a habit that you can actually fit in to your schedule. When I look back at my journal, I was actually doing a very miniscule amount of exercise early in my journey, especially compared to where I am now. Today I do my old workout (the one that I thought was so tough) as a warmup to the real deal. Get started, stay with it and keep pushing yourself. The rewards are fantastic!

  3. A fellow blogger pointed out to me that it needs to become part of your routine, just like brushing your teeth. Just gotta' get started adn keep at it. Before long, it just becomes part of your day. :)

    And fantastic job an avoiding all of the fast food land mines. That was one of the hardest hurdles for me to overcome when I first started. I think I cried the whole first two weeks, lol. But I beat the fast food addiction, and I know you will, too. :)

  4. Great job on traveling and staying good with your eating. That is tough!!
