5-Day Average: 198.8 lbs.
I'm still here, and feeling much better overall since my last post. I still have some sniffles but nothing that will prevent me from working out. I've worked out 3 days this week so far, with one more scheduled for tomorrow. I had hoped to get a total of 5 workouts this week, but I had to come into work early yesterday and was busy all night afterwards. But 4 is better than the 2 I've been getting the past few weeks. I feel good, too. Healthy, no injuries (knock on wood), not too sore, and really just enjoying my workouts. The weather is amazing right now (not too hot, not cold), which brings my spirits up. The smell of fall is in the air, and I love it. Granted, we don't really get the full autumn experience here, but there's definitely a difference that I enjoy a lot.
My eating has been really good, but for some reason I'm just not dropping much weight. I'm hoping that the added activity will start to chip away at the pounds. I know it will, as long as I can stay consistent both in the gym and in the kitchen. Being spotty with either one will derail any success I might enjoy, especially now that I have less weight to lose.
I'm going to be honest: I've been lazy this summer. But I'm coming up on one year in this journey, so it's time to put my nose to the grindstone. I want to be at my goal by the end of the year, but that's not going to happen by being lackadaisical about my eating or my fitness. It's going to take focus and sweat, and some blood too (I ripped my hand this morning doing 120 pull-ups, so there's already blood involved). Let's go get some.
