I stopped weighing myself a while back. My weight had been mostly holding steady, but I have noticed that my gut is bigger. I think the lack of upper-body workouts in combination with poor eating is leading me to lose muscle and gain fat. So, yes, sometimes the scale lies.
I’m sitting in the Louisville airport waiting to fly to DC via Cleveland. I have a work-related conference to attend. They will provide (too much) food. I need to control my portion sizes.
I’m not bringing a bike with me. Without riding, I should be able to get by with very little food. When I get home I’ll concentrate on eating right again, re-start the food-diary (again), and start weighing myself again. I’m also going to start using my dumbbells and doing push-ups.
The hotel I’ll be staying at has a fitness center, and I am bringing proper exercise attire, so I should be able to squeeze some time in on the weight machines.
My goal weight is still 175. My lack of progress has been maddening and a bit depressing. I’ve used being busy as an excuse to not eat right. That needs to change.
