I have a confession to make. I haven’t worked out in at least two weeks. And yes, I know, I can’t really lose weight without working out at least once a week or so. But I have honestly been having trouble figuring out when to do it. Tax season is underway, which means working. And when I get home, the husband likes to occupy the TV. Which means that my access to the Wii Fit requires a lot more motivation on my part. Since I’d have to convince him to get off of whatever game he’s playing in order to let me on. In the midst of all that, I’m trying to be a little more regular about writing and working on revisions. So basically, I’m not doing, and I don’t really have a reason other than I’m busy. So, even though I know there are much busier people than me making time to work out, it seems hard.
On the positive side of things, I don’t think I’ve been gaining weight. My clothes are feeling looser. And I’ve been keeping up with my drinking water thing, so I assume that any weight I’m losing is due to that. Somehow, drinking water makes me hungry for things like fruit, instead of chocolate bars. Though it probably helps that I’ve been buying more fruit instead of chocolate bars. And as much as money problems suck, food that I cook at home is better for me than the more expensive stuff at McDonalds. So it all works together. There’s also the fact that I have to park in a garage that’s about half a block away from the office. So I’m getting in a little more activity. Past years, I’ve always lost a little weight during tax season just from the walk to and from the parking garage. I imagine that’s not hurting me this year either.
I have no idea what my weight is, since I haven’t been on the Wii Fit. But if I had to estimate, I’d say 190. So that only puts me 25 away from my goal. I will confirm or deny that weight next week.
