It’s now been a couple of months since Ironman Florida…and I’ve arrived 2-3 pounds lighter than I was…so a good result considering that on November 10, I wrote a Post and set a weight goal for Jan. 1:
With exercise down to a relative whisper for the next 4-8 weeks, Iâ€™ll be re-focused on tracking what I eat every day, and tightening portion controlâ€¦hard to break those in-season portion habitsâ€¦and see if i can trim off a few pounds in the off-season, before ramping back up in Januaryâ€¦coming out a least even by January 1, with holidays and all, would be the first goalâ€¦5+ pounds thinner even betterâ€¦5 pounds heavier wouldnâ€™t kill me, and some argue even desirable, so weâ€™ll see how it shakes out.
…a bit bitter sweet…fun, fun times…but feeling the call to duty of responsible eating and drinking once again, and an exercise ramp up into the new season…all good
I had wrestled myself down 5-6 pounds before the holidays kicked into high gear, and had a fun,Â 2 week blow out…now ended…the good news was that I had built in those few extra weight loss pounds before hitting the hard party circuit, with not much exercise to balance…and on most days an afternoon nap was much more appealing than a sweat-fest in the hotel gym.
…as fun as the day after day partying is…and all the travel, and great company, and laughing, and terrific food, and fine wines…late into the night…I do have to say that I am looking forward to feeling better in the mornings again 🙂
…and looking forward to a great 2011…Happy New Year!
