So my regular weekly Weight Training blog updates have stopped being just that. I forgot to post anything last week regarding my weight issues and I guess that pretty much ends that series. To get you guys up to speed on that, I dropped back down 2 pounds in those past two weeks (back down to 223 pounds). Other than my retail job that has me moving more than my past sedentary jobs, I haven’t really done much in regular exercise or moderating what I eat. I’ve been really focusing on my training of my new job and just lost my focus on fitness. Despite that I have lost 2 pounds and I’m grateful for that.
When I did have free time, I used it for more escapism but more on that in another blog entry. I do feel a little bad that I wasn’t able to keep up with my post-a-week pledge but there have been some weeks where I did more than one post so I guess this isn’t too bad. Oh well. At least you know what I’ve been doing. Just distracted with mundanity. Sometimes that isn’t such a bad thing.
Not much to really say about this past week. I didn’t really do much of anything to improve my physical state. I was still in the abyss of some self loathing but I’m now over it and when I weighed myself this past Sunday I was down to 225 pounds again (Can’t seem to shake that number lol).
That’s pretty much it. I plan to do better this coming week, though today hasn’t quite started all that promising. I guess the next blog entry will tell the tale.

This past week I didn’t have any excuses. Some rain, notwithstanding, I should’ve been able to have made time for exercise. I only exercised once last week. And threw all other caution to the wind.
Because of my lack of effort I went up another pound (Back up to 226 lbs) and I think I pretty much lost the fight in me. I had two free days this week and didn’t bother to try to exercise. I have a morning shift tomorrow so technically I should have plenty of time to begin exercise anew before dinner, or right after, to start getting things right again. But I’m not sure if I care anymore. I know intellectually that I should. I have been making good progress and despite some setbacks I have been doing ok thus far.
I guess I’m just in self-pity mode and for the moment just need a brief respite of self-loathing and solace before I get myself back up and start the process all over. I almost didn’t even bother writing this blog entry (which is why it took so long to get this posted). But here it is. I guess I haven’t quite given it all up just yet.
