This past week was a little mentally stressing for me. Don’t want to bore you with the minutiae of last week but it deals with my toils of podcasting and I do a little rant about it on episode 12 that should post in the next upcoming days (Tuesday, June 7, to be exact). Anyway, because of my frets and worries (first-world worries to be sure. I have nothing on what’s going on in Japan, or Haiti, etc.), I broke down when I went shopping for some groceries and bought some Chips Ahoy cookies.
I know, I know, the last thing I should be doing is getting comfort foods when feeling a bit stressed out and I should actually be exercising more. But that’s what I did. Surprisingly, however, despite my little fall from grace, I was still good with my moderation and only splurged into my snack when my caloric count warranted a little reward. I didn’t let my little stress get too me too much and because of my somewhat good resolve I still manage to lose another 2 lbs in week 10.
I’m now 228 lbs and 185 lbs is only 43 lbs away. It doesn’t seem too implausible a goal anymore. With my new gig working at The Highline park at my old neighborhood of Chelsea, I’ll expect to be even more physically active and just shedding more weight. This past week of doom and gloom is now behind me and I only see sunnier pastures on the horizon.
