It has been exactly one month since I have written and that is not a good blogger. The last month for me personally and professionally has been a struggle. Its also a good example of what can happen to your health if you do not make it a priority. I have maintained my weight loss for most of the month without a major issue but in the last week I have put on about 6 pounds or so. Some of this is water weight. Too many carbohydrates and no enough green vegetables. Some of my bad habits are creeping in and it took me a few weeks to start realizing it and to decide to adjust it.
I was at a bike rally this week and healthy eating and bike rallies just do not mix. The general atmosphere is eat, DRINK and be stupid. Alcohol is adding too much to my caloric intake.
Carbohydrates have also been creeping in. To much bread and to many french fries. I have discussed this before. Carbs are not good for ME. They cause a trigger which makes me eat and I have let them in. Not the good carbs but the bad ones have "come a creepin back in".
I have 30 days til my trip. I weigh about 238. In 30 days I want get down to 220. I made that plan originally a month ago and thought I was Ironman. Well Iron weighs a lot. I admit I have an issue with carbs and will cut out the processed carbs... I will also give up my Pizza (oh how hard that will be) and I will give up any trips to diners.
This month will be a clean month. Lean protein. Bison and Chicken- Green and yellow veggies- and I will start using meal replacements to streamline my health.
Physical activity- The gym has always been my friend. The treadmill has become monotonous to me. I have not been good about my aerobic activity. This is hanging as well.
I have seen some great improvements in muscle mass however.
Check back in a week or so for an update.
