So this morning, I weigh 231 pounds. That’s up one pound from last month. March sucked in many ways, and strict adherence to my plan was among them. But, hey —
Most importantly, I’ve kept it off.
So, even though my rate of loss has stalled a bit and I can be frustrated, it is important for me to reflect and hold on to the WIN**.
Easy. I’m going to live my life — a healthy life. Adopting a primal/paleo lifestyle wasn’t and isn’t temporary. It’s one of the lenses through which I approach life.
This month’s challenge is pretty straight forward: use a half-hour of my lunch hours to structure my fitness work plan.
- Mondays: Yoga with Stefanie and the gang
- Tuesdays: Weights with Andre and Clint
- Wednesdays: Interval running with Andre and Clint
- Thursdays: Weights with Andre and Clint
- Fridays: Interval running with Andre and Clint
This is atop my existing habits of carb restriction, the 5k walk to work in the mornings and quick-n-dirty calisthenics while making breakfast.
I’m still working on my pull-ups. I have the bar mounted in the entrance to my laundry room, much to the peril of those taller than me. Every time I go there (which is often), I give it a go. It’s irregular, but working for me.
I’ve also registered for the 10k Bluenose Run on Victoria Day weekend. If I can stop rolling my ankle, it should be a fun event.
Oh, one more thing. I’m still doing my weekly writing thing in preparation for my novel-crafting effort this coming November. If you’re interested in reading my short-fiction training efforts, you can find them here.
