I don't want to know how many calories I took in today. Too many, that's for sure. I had chocolate cake at lunch time and three muffins after dinner. I'm a little nervous that my next weigh in won't be as good as the previous three. I guess I've felt the same way before and things worked out well, but now is not the time to be resting on my laurels.
I only have three more visits to the gym before I will have gone 21 days in a row. I'll probably go on Monday too because, well, Monday is weigh-in day and I've exercised before every other weigh-in. I will be grateful to have rest days again. Maybe, for my next three-week challenge, I'll go without a cheat meal. Oh, man, that one would be tough. Maybe I'll start by just planning everything I'll eat the day before for three weeks. We've got a little more than 10 months left, does anyone else have any ideas for 21-day habit-forming triple-hyphenated challenges? They don't really need to be triple-hyphenated, or even single-hyphenated for that matter. They just have to be healthy habits that I'll practice every day for three weeks.
Finally, I've been toying with the idea of awarding a blog of the week to another weight-loss blog. I'm discovering there is an active community of weight-loss bloggers in all different stages of their weight loss journeys. Some, like Tyler at 344pounds.com, have lost over 100 pounds. Others, like Tom over at I Hate Green Apples, are just starting out. I decided to do blog of the week for a couple reasons. One, to fend off writer's block when I feel like all I'm saying in my blog is "I'm hungry all the time". And two, to show my readers (that's you) where I draw a lot of inspiration. I mean, I get a lot from comments I get (public and private), but I'm also inspired by other peoples' journeys.
This weeks blog of the week goes to Jack Sh*t, Gettin' Fit. His posts are pretty silly at times, but this guy is serious about being healthy. He deals with the same writer's block I face from time to time by cracking jokes and rewriting lyrics to popular songs. I always LOL a little when I read his blog. His most recent post is about weight-loss bloggers who have disappeared from the blogosphere and how that translates to their weight loss journeys. Check him out.
