Good days; Bad days.

It turns out that today is going to be a bad day!
Not a bad day as in a really crappy kind of day; just a bad diet day.

It didn't start out that way. As a matter of fact, it was going to be a pretty good day--until...

It started out as a great day. In my weight loss efforts, I generally wait until I've managed to meet a goal for three consecutive days before I claim that goal. That way, a great day of fluid loss, diet or exercise doesn't skew reality by making a one day achievement. This was my third day in a row of sub 223, which is -35#.
I was at 221.0 which is actually sub 222.2 for the third straight day! My plan was to make Saturday my "bad" day and allow myself an indulgence or two. However, cake and dessert at a retirement gathering made today the "bad" day. Just as well, it was also a zero exercise day!

Tomorrow, I'll skip the morning weigh-in and make sure to get right back at it. I'm pleased that my restart after a couple of months is having the same great results that one might expect on a fresh start. I don't expect the rapid loss to continue, but it is a very encouraging way to get started. I am really learning a lot about how my system reacts to different foods, drinks, activity levels and sleep. The science of anatomy and physiology is amazing.

I hope that your Saturday will be a good day! I plan on making my Saturday a great day!

I hope to be riding the trails along the Minnesota River for at least a couple hours in the morning before work. I actually get excited thinking about it! :)

John, focus on the long-term, and don't let these off days get the best of you. Losing 35 pounds is a real achievement!
