No One Is Expendable
Figure it was time to provide an update on my training, or rather lack of.
Since Dam, I have really not reclaimed my stride. Life's issues combined with a relaxed attitude have had a few side effects. I have been exercising less and my food choices have not been the best. I have been allowing myself to fall into stress eating again. In the mornings I have fallen back into the habit of stopping at Quick Trip for a diet soda. A few times I have grabbed a breakfast sandwich even though I already had my Raisin Bran at home. The result is that since Dam I have gained fifteen pounds. Professor Ludwig would quickly inform me that this means I have added 37.5 pounds of impact back on my joints. To me that is the most troubling thought. When I last ran all I could think of was the added impact. Mentally this is driving me nuts. Especially when I think about how quickly I packed the pounds back on. I feel like I've been walking around wearing the infamous red shirt of impending doom. But this Team Voice member is not going to roll over and die.
I know that proper diet and exercise certainly need to be maintained.
That being said, good food choices today. No exercise today due to this being my 5am start week and teenager drama when I got home. I intend to get out tomorrow afternoon with either weight training or jogging. It's going to take both to get me back to were I was.
Speaking of where I was, big weight loss congrats go out to MikeF and Rae. Mike dropped below 200 and Rae is right there too. Fabulous job guys.
