As the title of this blog entry suggests, this week has been rather atypical. There’s been rain, false alarms of forecasted rain, tremors resulting from an earthquake down in Virginia, Hurricane Irene and, of course, consequently all MTA service was shutdown this weekend (probably the first time in history if not the first time in my lifetime). This of course made the week a little unpredictable. Plans had to be changed and adapted which cut into my exercise routine (which resulted in running only once this week). To top all of that, I fell back into all habits thanks to rationalization and ate a lot of junk I shouldn’t have.
Despite all of these obstacles, when I weighed myself, I only gain a half pound this week. Not bad at all considering all of the above. I also started a new job with a different schedule from my last temp job so once again I have to change my whole routine. Not hard by any means but as all habits go, change is sometimes hard to do. You really have to push yourself mentally. I intend to do that this following week.
My plateau definitely seems to be around 223-225 pounds (right now I weight 224.5 lbs). This just means I really have to take this a little more serious than I have been, obstacles aside. Definitely doable but still easier said than done. Overall, I just got to keep a positive frame of mind and not let the setbacks get me down. Feeling energetic and in the best shape that I have felt in a long while definitely helps keep me going.
