Ok, confession time… …I’ve not exactly been a “good boy” since coming back from Worlds. So, this past weekend, I got myself moving again, figuratively speaking.
I also have let you know that it is TOUGH getting moving in a positive direction after after falling back on old habits! Yes, friends and neighbors, breaking a downward spiral is tough. Really tough. I found myself thinking today “Gaining weight and getting out of shape is easy; loosing weight and getting into shape is hard. Very hard.” [Watch for a coming post on the difference between “being overweight” and “being out of shape”. They often are used synonymously but they are actually two different things.
So here I am, looking at the numbers this week on the scale and NOT feeling great about the numbers I’m seeing. I track both weight and body fat by weighing twice a day. For body fat, I use the TBF-531 Body Fat Monitor/Scale by Tanita. It uses the electrical impedance method of measurement.
I also use the Omron Fat Loss Monitor HBF-306. I take two measurements in the morning, one from each device and then average the numbers. And then I repeat the measurement in the evening, giving me four measurements per day. I weigh in twice a day and average those two numbers as well.
Well, that’s how I track my progress when I’m actually *ahem* tracking my progress and I haven’t been regularly *AHEM* tracking my progress (or lack thereof) since Worlds. Which brings me back to my original statement at the beginning of this entry “I haven’t been a good boy since Worlds” *SIGH*
So. Hello mild depression. Glad to meet you, let you introduce you to my good friend “mild frustration.” Oh you two know each other? I thought you might. *SIGH*
So what to do? Read the rest of this entry
