Last week I said to myself I’ve got to get my weight down. The timing of saying this goal and getting off to a good start were ill-fated. You see I was on vacation last week. And I usually try to do my favorite things while on vacation and one of them is eating out a little more than usual. Well, a lot more than usual.

Of course, I had some false hope when I got on the scale that by some miracle I was unaware of some pounds magically faded away. While the actual number increased by 1 pound from last week, I feel a sense of victory after a second of reflection. If I can suck down several very rich meals, pizza, ice cream, burgers, bags of snacks, candy, and sodas, all I have to do is get back to some moderation and I can probably lose a few pounds a week.

So last week was a false start. A mulligan, an ill-fated poorly thought-out start date. So let’s see what we can do with this coming week.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • Bang Bang Boom Boom Back to work.
  • Older homes have a lot working for them. Usually, the guys rehabbing them.
  • I made a hell of a lot of progress this past week and it feels good.
