My best friend is back at work after a business trip and even he hasn’t had any impact on my resolve. My best friend is the epitome of what I need to NOT do. He smokes, drinks everyday, skips breakfast, and eats fast food the rest of the day. Someday I’ll have to figure out how he isn’t twice my size. Anyway, all week we’ve been going out for lunch… well sort of.
Since he’s been out of town and since we’ve both been incredibly busy, we haven’t had much time to talk so we’ve been going out at lunchtime just to hang out. I heat up and eat my lunch at 11:45 and then at noon we go out and he stops at some fast food joint to get something to eat in the car. All week I’ve been going with him and not once have I even been tempted to get something (small victories 11,12,13,14, and 15). I’m hoping when he sees my resolve he’ll start bringing his lunch; we’ll see.
On the flip side of the coin, I’ve done a horrible job at exercising. My fear has come true, now that I’ve abandoned getting up at 5AM, it seems I have very little motivation to workout in the evening. All week I’ve been finding excuses (such as right now when I could be working out instead of blogging. Ohh that gives me a great idea for a blog post… the irony of sitting on your ass blogging about losing weight. Look for it next week! OK where was I? Oh yeah no exercising.
I still expect to see a loss tomorrow when I get on the scale, it’s just that I don’t feel like the week was complete for me. How can someone do so well in one area of healthy living and so poorly in another? I noticed that I have a harder time falling asleep when I don’t exercise; I know it’s good for my body and my mind. Oh well, one day at a time; you can’t fix everything at once. I’ll report on my weigh-in tomorrow.
