It's been a week since I started my one-week push. Why haven't you heard from me in that week? Because I failed to get started. I made it through one seventh of my week just fine. Tuesday was when the trouble started. I was so occupied planning my concert, I didn't get to the gym. Same thing on Wednesday. I spent Thursday evening packing and Friday driving. Saturday was a "cocktail party" my wife's cousin and his fiancee. Holy delicious chocolate. I also managed to end my 365 self portraits project on day four. Needless to say, I'm extremely ashamed of myself.
What am I going to do? I'm going to reorganize and form a new strategy. Until January 2nd, my blog entries will exist primarily as a chronicle of how I survived the holidays. I'll start my 365 days project over again when I feel ready to commit.
I'd like to hold myself responsible to the scale so I could see exactly how much damage my sinning has done, but I forgot to pack it. So for all intents and purposes, I'm going to assume my weight is about the same as last week. I hope you don't mind.
Lastly, I found a couple of good weight loss blogs to help me through my journey. I'll write more about them later, but right now I'd like to talk a little about some ideas I stole from them.
I plan on putting up a 5 pounds at a time chart that I can cross off as I progress. I'll have certain rewards for myself as I reach certain benchmarks.
I found a weight loss graph called Skinnyr. I'll be trying to embed it soon so I can be more accountable.
