So I sat here on Tuesday night and stared and stared into the screen until I realized that I am kind of blocked as far as writing this blog goes. It’s really a matter of figuring out what I want to get across right now. It’s kind of a weird stage in the diet. I am coming down on the final days, and this blog has been going on for over five months, and it has become a matter of habit now. So this entry might be a bit all over the place. But in a good way.
I do get bored sharing the same progress stories with you. But it does make for a bit of curiosity. So you really should know that I took three days off over the weekend, and had a good Tuesday and Wednesday this week.
The number 250 has, in many ways, temporarily replaced 240 because it is an achievable goal by mid-July. But still, 240 remains as the ultimate goal for now, and I look at it as a slight failure that I likely won’t get there by the time I go home. It’s become a little disheartening that I keep falling just short of these goals I’ve set for myself.
It might sound ridiculous to lose 50 pounds and complain about not losing 60, and I might agree with that. But it is frustrating considering that I have put myself in position to fall short.
Three straight off-days in each of the last two weeks have not exactly been smart. And in the past weeks I fell out of the habit of going to the gym every day (I went twice in each of those weeks).
What I am seeing now, in actuality, is what the struggle is going to be like while I am trying to maintain weight instead of lose it. The motivation will be different, and it will have to be manufactured a little bit more.
The past two days, I have dragged my ass to the gym in an effort to get it back to being routine. After waking up, eating a yogurt, and going straight to 24 Hour Fitness on Wednesday morning, I was back in the swing of things.
