Spring Break! 4 months of maintaining my weight!
Wednesday, March 19, 2008
Well this is a new thing for me since my oldest daughter was born almost 6 years ago. Both of my daughters are spending Spring Break at my wife's parents house. I miss them dearly but this is the first time they have been gone for more than a day, so it is a nice change. Plus they get to know their grandparents better which I know is very important.
My wife and I have been able to enjoy each others company, though we spend most of our time talking about our daughters. I am even able to workout in the morning since I do not have to take my daughters to school and daycare, this allows me to spend more time with my wife in the evening.
I have been maintaining my weight pretty well for 4 months now between 215 and 206 and I am trying to get back up to the 215 to 225 range with weight training. Funny or really not so funny is my doctor is telling me to eat more and exercise less, if that isn't backwards and ironic I do not know what is!
And on the whole 3% body fat thing that had me worried about a month ago, the machine was more than likely off and I am not going to let it worry me since I'm guessing my real body fat % is closer to 5-8%. That is my life update for now. Everybody who reads this keep up your great work and great new way of living it is worth it even though it is challenging at times.
