time to take a load off myself. even though i'm not formally in the MDRF challenge this year, I'm gonna start trying to act like I was, just like 2009 when I managed 30 pounds. last check, I was 158. still well under the worst-of-the-worst 172, but 10 above my original goal and 15 above my ideal. geeze, if i was eating out dinners like i was in '06 through '08 how much worse would it be?
SO new rules:
1 beer or half-wine every 2 days, tops (i've been up to 2 beers or 2 glasses in a day more regularly than I should). a beer @ lunch means water only to drink @ dinner. and go find some yeungling lite (drinkable and only 100cal)
back to the morning oatmeal packet: eat it while waiting the 10 min it takes for the coffee to finish
bought lunches cut in half if possible
bring leftovers in more often
pre-allocate dinner portions and don't get seconds (in order to make said leftovers)
I don't think i'll be as picky on the 1500/cal goal, but maybe 2000/day + exercise will be enough. will know in a couple of weeks.
speaking of which:
1) start using the building gym (the ellipticals are a bit different than my last company building's but we'll see...)
2) this weekend go back and blast-clean the tv room so I can use the wii fit
3) bring in the abslider (unlike last building, this one doesn't have one) as well as the sweats
4) the room gets a decent 3g signal, so start putting together 80s rockin' playlists (unfortunately i can't find where the zen is that had the 80s music I used back then :( )
