As you may have noticed, I pretty much disappeared in the last week. I’d like to say I was on vacation, or kidnapped by aliens or something interesting, but the truth is I was just busy. I had a bunch of after-work events I had to attend, then I had relatives visiting from out-of-state for a few days (who noticed my physical fitness!), followed by more after-work events. I didn’t blog, I rarely made it to the gym or the trails, and my eating habits suffered. The weird thing is that I finally broke my weight-loss plateau, at least for a few days. Maybe after I get back into the groove this week, I’ll see some more weight loss and muscle toning? Maybe my body needed a shake-up in the wrong direction? One can dream.
So, the goal for this week is just to get back to normal. I gotta exercise at least five days this week. (Monday was already an off day, and Wednesday will be, too, thanks to after-hours, work-related events I’m compelled to attend.) I gotta drink a lot of water. I gotta eat lots of fruits and vegetables. I’ve scheduled a physical for this week which will be shortly followed-up by blood tests, meaning the dreaded cholesterol test. I’m crossing my fingers that my doctor finds improvement in my health and that I continue to avoid cholesterol medication which I’ve been dodging for, oh, 16 years.
What are your goals for the week?
