Getting Caught up

So – I bet you thought that this was going to be another “oops – was too busy this week” post, didn’t you? Well, I actually got my lazy ass out the door and got the calorie tracking back on track this week.

There are a couple of changes though. Seems that I wasn’t have too much trouble tracking to my old calorie targets, so I’ve decided to get a little more aggressive. Using, I’ve targeted 1.5 lb per week loss, which puts me on a daily calorie target of 1790. I had a couple hiccups early this week, but toward the end of the week, I was able to fall into a bit more of a routine.


Distance: 0

Calories: 95 over goal


Distance: 2.65 @ 15:36

Calories: 259 under goal


Distance: 0

Calories: 388 over goal (oops!)


Distance: 0

Calories: 19 over goal


Distance: 2.65 @ 16:12

Calories: 54 under goal

Next will be Sunday weigh in. I’ll see how many steps back I’ve taken the last three weeks.

Is it Friday Already?

So here it is – Friday. Not one entry in the blog. Which is not good news. I’ve ratcheted down the calorie allowance in my MyFitnessPal profile (i.e., trying to lose more per week), but have not been religious in tracking. Also, late night at poker on Tuesday, late night at work Wednesday, early night to bed Thursday (how does 8PM grab you?), and all of a sudden a week has passed without any time on the road/trail. I’m not looking forward to Sunday weigh-in!

Not to make more excuses, but we’ll be celebrating son’s birthday this evening and I’m playing in a big poker tournament on Saturday – so in reality the next time I’ll be able to get back on track will be Sunday. I’ll hold on until then!

Behind the Eight Ball Again

Getting back on track has been postponed one week. I was traveling this week without a rental car. Forgot just how few restaurants are around Las Colinas. Forgot just how badly one can eat when relying on room service and food delivery. Forgot how many calories can be quaffed in airport terminals. Back at it this week.
