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.
This past week was my first full week at my new retail job at the Vitamin Shoppe. Unlike my last retail experience at the Apple Store, where I am familiar and know about gadgets and technology, I’m in completely new territory discussing vitamins, supplements and other nutritional and workout questions. Because of this, I didn’t exercise this week in order to ensure I would be well-rested for my work week and be in a good situation to absorb as much new information as I could.
It is quite a learning curve for a newbie like me, and being as I didn’t prepare lunch for that week, I also had to eat out all that time. Put those two ingredients together and you get the formula for more weight gain. Fortunately it was only a half pound more from last week. I’m guessing since I’m on my feet all day long that help lessen the blow.
I still have a lot to learn at my new job but I can’t keep using that excuse to forgo exercise. I need to get back on the fitness schedule. Let’s see what next week will bring.
