Getting Back on Track

Sunday, June 07, 2009

I have been lax in my fitness and nutrition over the last 3 months and have started to see the effects on the scale once again. When I reached my goal of 160 in March of 2008, I intended on maintaining a weight of 160-163lbs. While I've only gone over that mark by a pound (Currently 164) I am not happy with the way I feel on a daily basis.

I recently began traveling more with my job and realized that I was feeling lethargic and zapped of energy because well 1) I was traveling more and 2) I was eating crappy foods and not really exercising at all. While I haven't gained a good deal of weight, I can see that my muscle tone is fading and realize that I'm slipping back into old habits. I started logging my food last week just to see where I'm at and try to get back on track. I let the job interfere with that last week and made a couple of poor choices eating out. Unfortunately for me, eating out is a necessity and is where a lot of my business gets done. I've got to quit using that as an excuse to eat poorly though. The reality of it is, I have complete control of my schedule for the most part and just need to plan better in order to remain consistent.

This week I start anew. No travel this week and I'm going to make a plan and stick with it. If things creep up that are beyond my control, I've just got to improvise, adapt, and overcome so that I can work my exercise in and stick to my goals. I already know that I've got to travel the following week and will come up with a plan for dealing with that and working exercise into that schedule.

    Glad to hear you have to decided to get back on track. When you do travel consider looking for a card deck you can use for exercises in the hotel room. Get a couple of resistance bands and take your running shoes. Plan your exercise even when you travel. You can do it. Make your plan and work your plan.
