About Fogdog's Weight Loss

Don't Focus on the Goal...

If you've followed this blog you know that I've struggled for many years with improving my health. I've finally reached a point where I've managed to maintain a small amount of success. Now it's time to take the next step, but I believe it requires a new way of thinking.

Instead of trying to get healthy, why not shift focus toward learning how to build healthy habits instead. Follow me as I try to teach myself how to Engineer healthy habits that will allow me to take my health to the next level. Let's see where this experiment goes!

Day #27 - Productivity Feels Good

So let me start with reporting that I gained 3.8 pounds this week.  My weight is fluctuating up and down each week so I'm not getting too worked up over it.  This week was more about mental heatlh than it was about physical.

Today was a wild day.  I've moved on to painting daughter #2's room; the process started today.  Now it would have been easy to put off the plan until tomorrow because we had so many commitments to make today.  I had 2 basketball games and 2 team picture events (at different times and at different locations from their games).  I had an hour here and there to work on the room until 4PM when everything was finally done.  If I wanted to get her room completely painted I needed to get the trim painted today so that I can paint the walls tomorrow. 

I'm happy to report that I managed to get the trim painted.  It took me and Mrs. Fogdog until 7:30PM, but it's done.  I'm thrilled that I didn't let all those commitments derail my plans and I worked hard to meet the goals I set out for the day. 

The other nice part about staying so productive is that I tend to eat less.  I didn't stick to my normal eating plan, but I also only ate 3 meals today.  I could have done better with water but I also coud have done worse.

Anyway, this was not my best week from a weight loss perspective, but I really do feel like I made a lot of headway with my mental state.  Day #27 is in the books; on to day #28.

Stay Strong!
