Bah humbug says the Christmas Weight Gain Grinch.  Not much of a surprise.  Recording has been intermittent.  Cookie consumption has been high.  The good news is the cookies are almost gone (sort of good news?!?).  The heavy food is mostly gone.  Things should get closer to on-track starting today.

On a technical note – probably last week I will record the body fat %.  I have not found it helpful and the variations from week to week (both in large movement weeks and flat weeks) make me question it’s accuracy.

Now off to the road!

Holiday Musings

So Santa left me some of his jelly belly it seems!  The last week and a half has been a series of cookies and candies and drinks and missed gym sessions.  All in all tho, I’ve stayed inside the same 5 pound range since last October which is good, just wish that 5 pound range were about 10 pounds lighter.

That said, it’s mostly over.  Still some cookies and so on to eat, but things will start to normalize today and be back to normal next Wednesday or so (not a huge New Year’s basher so not too worried about that) as we get through the treats and so on.

Organizationally, using the time to clean up the blog a little and to start to prep for next year’s marathons.  The training calendars are up to date and it’s just a matter of waiting til Jan 15th to start the first run (don’t worry will be at the gym plenty before then).

Happy holidays and have a safe New Year!

Bad, bad, bad week.  Work and social evens for multiple evenings out with alcohol.  Cookies, cookies everywhere.  And just a very lousy Friday overall.  Definitely not my finest week.  Still haven’t even logged it all (some of it is unloggable since I don’t know what it was).

Keep on trucking!

Around the Web – Dec 21

Obesity bigger issue than hunger now.

Startups for obesity.

Interesting study on willpower.

Hmm not good for me – Impatience hurts your hurt.

Yep, exercise good for the brain.
