kingkeld's Journal, 24 January 2011

A slight, but insignificant gain today, still just fluctuation, and nothing to worry about. I have seen this so many times, it doesn't even phase me any longer. :) I know what is happening and that it will disappear in a day or two, bringing me to a new lowest weight. I have seen that I apparently lose weight in chunks, and not a little every day. This is of course the reason many people weight in weekly, but I just don't feel like I am in control if I do that. I need the daily reminder that I am on a mission and that I need to keep going. I am motivated and doing this (as you all know) with great success, but it is SO easy to lean back and let nothing happen.

The same with my motivation for exercise. I go swimming three times every week. Well, I used to. Last week I did not go at all. I guess I got comfortable in the mornings, and found excuses. Too cold outside, too tired, too many things to do. Well, no more. Today, I WILL go swimming, which means leaving in about 10-15 minutes if I am to make it on time. I need the exercise, I need to move, and I need to do this to tighten my skin. I am actually getting to the point where I can see the dreaded hanging belly (which is not sexy at all) and I hope my swimming can help me get rid of that while building some muscle mass.

I know I will feel like a million dollars when I go to work after the swim. I am looking forward to that as much as the swim itself. It's the getting out of the door and get going when I COULD wait home for another 80 minutes that is SO tempting. :/

Well, enough babbling - I gotta get going. Life is good!

EDIT: Well, the swimming didn't happen. :( SO many little things got in the way and I hate that it happened. I was actually really psyched to go. Here is the deal:

I am going to shop after work today, and we need to but a LOT of things. So I took a much bigger backpack, in order to fit all my stuff. I brought my swim clothes and my lunch box and had it all ready. So I start walking towards the swimming facility, when I - after quite a walk - realize that I did not take my heart medicine. Now, I can not swim without it, it will be very uncomfortable and potentially dangerous. This is the reason that I always have spare medicine in my backpack - the OTHER backpack (of course). I also have spare medicine at work, but going there will mean that there will not be enough time to go swim. At this point I see that if I go, I will only have about 30 minutes from arrival and until I have to leave again - hardly worth the effort.

Then, I decide that I should maybe just take a long walk - still decent exercise, and not too hard on my heart and blood pressure. However, I realize that the streets are so icy, I could easily fall. (It can be kind of a death trap here in the winter time, and we have had thawing weather all day yesterday, with frost last night - so everything is iced over.)

So I decided to just go to work - I am here 90 minutes early and don't really have a whole lot of work to do today.
...and on top of that, I forgot my water bottle at home. Dammit.

It's a good thing that I am in a great mood (for a Monday) and will not be brought down on the little things. :)

Life is STILL good.

You had quite a day before it even started. I hope the rest of your day was better. I lose weight in chunks too,very frustrating, but like you I'm starting to accept it or at least get used to it. Pat
