I guess that is what happens when you get used to NOT doing something… you forget to do it when you’re supposed to do it.  Like I am supposed to be posting a blog every night about my daily activity but I have forgotten the past couple nights.  I’m not too busy to do it, I just forget until it is too late.

It is a perfect example of how not doing something can really screw things up.  Just like me not exercising or eating right during my LASIK and holiday break.  I chose to eat what I want, when I want and to sit on my butt as much as I wanted.  In the end, that really took a toll on things.  I gained weight, I lost energy and I lost my mojo.  I can’t run as much and as far as I did before.  I don’t look as good as I did before (not that I looked good, but I look even worse now) and the whole thing just took brought my back a few steps.

I am going to continue working, however, and realize that these bumps in the road will happen.  Even if I get to where I want to be and look and feel as fit as I want I can possibly fall off the wagon and back into the food pile again.  It really is a non-stop journey.

And Thursday was a continuation of that journey.  I did my walking at work, counted my calories, wore my BodyMedia device and went to the gym.  I did eat a donut, but I fit it within my calories which is exactly how it should be.  Maybe I can lose weight faster and keep it off longer if I eat nothing but salad with vinaigrette and drink nothing but water, but why would I want to spend the next 50 years of my life eating and drinking that?  That’s what I don’t get about people who choose to do that.  Do you REALLY want to do it forever?

Hell no, gimme bacon.

  1. eeeeek! You will not lose weight eating nothing but salad..you will get hungry and cross and eat more in the long run…

    or maybe that is just me!

    I am sticking to lower carbs higher protein and eating lots of sensible but not boring plus some other stuff if i fancy it within a sensible calorie goal…it is working so far!

    1. Yeah. Salad is good on the side, but not the best meal. And some salads have more calories than pizza! I will stick to what I’m doing for now. It worked until I flopped, should keep working now.

      1. Exactly, salad has its place but it is more important to know what you are eating and be conscious of it…I have seen people ear salad assuming it must be healthy but it is smothered with creamy dressing and all sorts!

        You keep doing what you are doing 🙂
