Sometimes the feeling takes you and you just need to go with it. It has been a while since I was here so I thought I would document the recent past just to try and bridge the gap. The big item on the horizon today is the Biggest Loser Competition at work that I have been running. This is the second installment of the competition and today was supposed to be the finale however with people away at the RUG conference, we have moved the date to Wednesday. How am I doing?? Badly! My first outing for BL1 was a success however I have found it increasingly difficult and have only managed a few pounds off for the 4 months of BLII. I have also had a hard tie getting to WW on a Wednesday, partly because I don’t want to show a gain and partly because I have been pretending there is another reason besides not wanting to show a gain! Anyway, I really need to get back on track since my goal of being 250 for Birchmount competition left me about 5lbs short and my goal of 245 for Orangeville which is this weekend seems so so far away. Also, in order to win the BLII outright, I probably need to be sub 250… I did win month 3 but that was more because nobody else really did well. So I just need to get the weight program back to the top of the personal priority list instead of being lazy with my goals and motivation. It is increasingly difficult however when Dr Alex is still reluctant to put me back on the gel.
So here is a review, and having looked back at the site just now I realize that it has been a long time, almost back to last year when I wrote something current.
