Willpower, that’s what it’s all about.
Out of town meeting this morning (complete with a decent lunch – bonus) and then my first day back in the gym this afternoon. Cardio-only, which I haven’t done in ages upon ages. Thank god for my new iPod, which was an early Father’s Day gift, so I’d like to take a minute to thank my lovely wife for that little gift toward my exercise goals!
This will include my first weigh-in of this little adventure. I’m not so worried about my weight, really. I plan to use my belt as my real measuring stick. I bought this belt when I broke my last one two years ago. I was just starting to put some weight back on from my good weight of 2006 then, and I actually had to add a notch to the belt to be able to keep my pants up. For the last several months I’ve, uh, been using the notch three over from the one I added. That’s about three inches of waistline for those keeping score at home. When I get back to that last DIY notch I’ll know I’m doing great.
Still, for solidarity with my fellow travelers on this path, I’ll do a weigh-in on the gym scale. That’s the scale I’ve always gone by for my actual weight since our bathroom scale sucked, so we’ll have an “official” weigh-in.
Over/under is 212. Who’s betting? After pizza and a Blizzard for Father’s Day, I’m taking the over, but it should be close.
