Next week I'll fire it back up?I've had the most miserable two weeks or work and I'm letting it affect my diet and workout plan. Bright side, I weighed myself yesterday and I'm still pretty stable. Although, I ate badly for dinner last night and tonight. Sigh
it's not hard to get burnt out every now and again. I do quite often. best thing I've found to do is to recognize it, and just take the week off with the promise that you'll start back full steam on monday, possibly even with a new routine. new routines help you get back into since it's kinda like starting over, and you have new interesting stuff to do instead of the old stuff that got you burnt out in the first place.also, now I will be using my inevitable visit to florida to share an embrace on the beach as a carrot to dangle in front of you to keep you motivated. you must lose 20 more pounds, by the end of june no less, before I will make the trip. just imagine my chiseled chest and bulging forearms and you'll be exercising like THAT.

Your spreadsheet will inevitably out-nerd mine but for the brief time I spent coming up with those calculations, my spreadsheet was not to be trifled with. I actually began to create a different one with every intent of trifling, but thought better of it. I ran 3.5 miles tonight in just over 25 minutes and was very happy to find that I was really fresh at the end of the run. I would have kept going, but some silly person needed help moving a piano (yes, a bitchingly heavy piano) and I was on a deadline. I thought that I would be off tomorrow and Saturday but it's snowing like a bastard where I am and my plans of being away for the weekend may have been compromised. If that's the case, oh well, I'll be back in the gym for the next two days.
well just to calm your fears, my nerdiness is only surpassed by my laziness, so I doubt I'll ever get around to building that spreadsheet. at least not while I'm off of work.oh, sunny with a high of 74 today here. fyi.
