Day 201 - so far so good
Wednesday, July 10, 2019      8 comments

As expected, the week seems to be working out in my favor. Feels great to finally be back on track. So far been able to stick to the plan and things are going well. Continue to chip away on projects at work and have been able to eat as planned. ... Read more
Day 200 - well on my way
Tuesday, July 09, 2019      9 comments

200 days in - 1/3 of the time, 1/3 of the weight lost. Technically still on target, if all goes to plan. Since that is less than likely (but, possible!) I am reminding myself of the fact that this is not a race, but ideally a lifelong journey. I... Read more

Finally seeing some positive trending on the scale. Super energized this morning and had a productive day at work. Ate well, brown-bagged, drank my water, got some walking in and even had some fruit today - fresh mangoes. That‘s one thing I... Read more

Day 197 - the journey continues
Saturday, July 06, 2019      8 comments

I have been really doing well for 150+ days and logging/blogging every day. Have been a bit inconsistent lately. Again, got plenty of “excuses”, but besides the week I was without WiFi, nothing really sticks. So, I will make every effort again t... Read more

Finally, back home and no travel for the next 2-3 weeks. Need to focus on getting back to my routine that I know works. Must...be...disciplined... The last 4 weeks have been rather eventful, full of ups and downs - lots of travel, scheduled... Read more
Day 187 - did ok today
Thursday, June 27, 2019      5 comments

Quite happy how today worked out. Long day, 5 hours in traffic, a 2 hour flight, so didn't have time to eat too much. 3 meals, but all well measured. Got late to the hotel, so ate a bit too late today, but stayed well within my calorie range. ... Read more
Day 186 - keeping myself honest
Wednesday, June 26, 2019      7 comments

If I ignore it, does it mean it didn‘t happen? Somehow I seem to think so, or wish, but know better. 3 square meals today, lunch and dinner were food tastings, and unfortunately plenty of it. Recording what I ate, I am quite a bit over my ... Read more
Day 185 - getting back into it
Tuesday, June 25, 2019      9 comments

On the road this week, and I did reasonable well today, and much better than last week. Had to push myself to ensure I record everything I ate, and to record my log/blog. Can't get lazy and let this slip. Need to remind myself that this is... Read more

Day 172 - yep, I blew another day
Wednesday, June 12, 2019      12 comments

Probably my worst day the last 25 weeks, today was a binge fest. Breakfast, lunch and dinner - one long series of tasting. Tried keeping up with recording what I ate, and the tally is not in my favor. Only good thing is that I got 10,000 steps i... Read more
