Week 2: 185 lbs
As mentioned previous in my State of My Fat Ass Address, I am trying to lose some weight. Week 1 started off pretty well with me going to the gym Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday before work. I ate pretty good for most of the week and just couldn’t make it to the gym Friday.
It’s Tuesday of week 2 and I haven’t made it to the gym yet. I was going to try to go this morning but ended up working (from home) later than I had anticipated so I didn’t get into bed until almost 11pm. And with going to bed that late, it’s just not worth waking up at 5am to head to the gym. I’ll push myself to go tomorrow and Thursday, and maybe Friday too.
Stupid or not, part of what I’m not looking forward to is listening to the music that’s already on my iPod. I need to get on the desktop at home and re-load a bunch of stuff that I can listen to at the gym. Also, going with no music (and no, I don’t consider the crap they play over the speakers through the whole gym music) is not an option. I just get too bored exercising with no music.
Cutting out junky food hasn’t been too hard. My key things are going to be avoiding fried food and just pure junk (candy, cookies, cakes, ice cream, etc). I know that just by doing those I can easily get myself down below 180lbs. The hard part will be cutting down (or ideally out) beer. If I could actually pull the trigger and cut out beer/alcohol completely I’d easily drop weight. And, as a result, I’m sure I’d be more motivated to get to the gym. Ah, if it were only that easy.
Baby steps I guess, baby steps.
