You thinking what I’m thinking?
Breakfast? No, but it was delicious yesterday. Delicious but not over indulged. I made it through this holiday by eating great food, with family and friends. Before i got a bit full, guess what? I stopped.
Planning ahead, i also anticipated the desserts, so I made an effort to up the exercise leading up to T-Day. And….I plan on enjoying a great community post-holiday session of crossfit Friday morning.
So what was the lesson this week? Not sure. Just don’t stuff yourself silly perhaps. Getting fit still tastes better than getting full. I trust you all are sticking to your individual plans – Plan is the key here. You gotta do to stick to it.
FITx50 \ week 18
FITx50 / week 17 and this has been my approach of late.
After last week’s post-travel and fancy food eating festival I returned to the crossfit gym. I was greeted by the realization that at closer to 50 than I was weeks ago, shape, like the space station, is something just waiting to drop.
Some crazy workout call Down Sally Up – yeah, that’s what I said – I got the down part pretty good.
Okay, mostly I’m kidding but this little kitten was so darn cute, i had to include him somewhere. I’m back to cutting portions in half and exercise. I’ve also gotten pretty decent at headstands, which as I understand isn’t good after having a March spinal surgery. But it’s titanium right??
This week was a good transition from sloth to beast. Look out next week – I’m back on track.
Happy health to you,
What happened to weeks 14 & 15? Well, that’s what I want to know. It’s crazy how trips to south Florida and the Carolinas can easily take you off your game plan.
Seriously, I’m like a bald tire spinning in marsh grass. I had to reintroduce myself to my friends at Momentum Crossfit, my Trek Madone 6.9 won’t even look at me and ice cream and I have been joyously reunited. How?
That’s my struggle. Weeks to months of sustained discipline followed by weeks to months (oh no, please no) of excuses, alibis and hushed alarm buzzers. My long-term goal of being FITx50 is still in sight with a March 2015 birthday, but I’d hoped for a sustained approach instead of a mad dash.
There, I said it – HOPED. That’s the issue. The term should be PLANNED for a sustained approach. As a long-time SWAT commander I understood the value of “Fail to plan / Plan to fail.” I’ve broken my own rule for survival / success. Now, I need to practice the first rule of digging holes.
When you find yourself in one, stop digging.
See you next week with a plan instead of a shovel in hand.
