It's finally hitting me, that this IS happening. Not nearly as fast as I want it, nor as easy. But, I'm A-OKAY with it. Around the holidays (oh, Happy New Year!) I was actually up, nearly 9 pounds. Erasing all of my efforts for delicious calorie-dense foods, sweets and bubbly. Came to my senses. Rather, came to terms that if I didn't stop, I'd be back above 227.

While this is a big milestone, it's far from my ultimate goal. Therefore, there's more work to do. I have to recommit, daily. Not to mute my excitement, I have been here before. And I need for it to be the last time.

So there's fresh produce in the fridge, about to pack the gym bag and lunch bag, and the clock is set for 5:30AM for 1 of 2 daily workouts. I'm ret'ta'go!

The food...
So, my plan has basically been to watch portions, eat more green stuff, and drink more water than anything else. I strive to be a little back more on plan, consistently and within structure. This entails preparing more of my own meals. I kind of suck at that.

Chicken Teriyaki w/ Steamed White Rice
Mini Bratwursts w/ Garlic Fries
Ceasar Salad Wrap (No Meat)
Lean Cuisine Roasted Chicken & Veggies
Vietnamese Pho Chicken Noodle Soup
Campbell's Roadhouse Chili w/ Ritz Whole Grain Crackers
Turkey Ranch Panini w/ Lays Potato Chips

Soup & Assorted Snacks for my Workday

The workout...

I have worked out FAITHFULLY... um, twice a week? I have done some home workouts, and check it... went to a boxing gym for a trial run.


Nooooooooo.....


The plan this week is to keep moving; pop in my workout DVDs and/or head to the gym. At least an hour workout, for 5 days.

And until next time....
