Went back to playing soccer today. Felt good to be out there smelling the grass and enjoying the competition that comes with it. Not sure why I kept putting it off, blame it on the back. I tweaked it MONTHS ago and have been hesitant to compete for fear of hurting myself Tired of that fear now, need to live.
I had done really well with losing weight before KC, down to under 205 but gained it back especially during a cold dark winter filled with excess drinks and depression. Now I am motivated to lose it but need to cut out one of two things sweets or alcohol. I think I'm going with sweets. Not because alcohol is a big part of my diet but rather sweets abound. I've been powering through the chocolate bars from Germany- clearly moderation is not my strong suit in this regard.
It's Sunday night now and I have a few koolooches in the fridge. I will try to stick to only those this week. At least until Friday. Oh and chocolate croissants count as sweets. I have 5 bananas that should make for 5 days of banana/milk/honey shakes for breakfast to replace the muffins and croissants that I enjoy. And no more carrot cake for lunch. I won't commit just yet to making my lunch to take to work. But at least I can cut out sweets. One step at a time.
My buddy had gained a ridiculous amount of wait and I told him months ago that he will never weight less than me (he had usually been 20 pounds lighter and now was 15 pounds heavier). We made some silly bet but I would hate to lose to that chubbster. The bet is to see if he will weigh less than me the next time we see each other after Sept. 30, 2011. I am not sure when I will see him next but I want to guarantee a win whenever that is. Wish me luck and I'll check in at the end of the week hopefully to see how this no sweets thing is working out for me.
