Sick and tired

Today's Weigh-In: 198.6 lbs.
5-Day Average: 199.12 lbs.

Sorry for the long gap in between posts. I got the flu that's been going around last Wednesday, and I'm still feeling a bit under the weather. Needless to say I didn't get to work out much, unfortunately. I didn't lose any weight this week, but I didn't gain any either. I'm feeling much better today, all I have now is a sore throat and messed up sinuses, but no aches or fever. I did work out this morning, and it wasn't too bad. I'm pretty sick and tired of being unable to maintain a consistent workout schedule. I want to be able to maintain a good physical capacity, but it seems that for a while now something always happens to me when I get motivated that takes me out of the game. I'm hoping that this sickness is the last thing for a while, because it's just driving me crazy.

We have a new employee at my work, so my boss is taking us all out to lunch to get acquainted. I'll need to make good choices and make sure my calories are in line with my goals.

I still haven't had any alcohol in over 2 weeks, and I can definitely feel the benefits on my body. I feel less groggy, and I sleep better, although I do miss being able to go and have a couple of beers with dinner to just relax and hang out. Oh well, only a week and a half left of my alcohol fast.

I'm going on an alcohol fast myself. While I'm not the type who drinks until he gets sloberknockered (three or four drinks over an entire night is the most I'll go), they still add up to empty calories that keep your body from losing fat while its in your system.

And I want to hit 299 so bad, that it's about time I pony up with some real commitment.
