Learning About My Body

Since mid-June I've lost over 50 lbs and put on 10 lbs of muscle for a net loss of 40 lbs. Back to high school wrestling weight, sprinting on treadmills, doing cross-fit and all that stuff while continuing to drop. Usually I do morning workouts, 5 days a week and eating healthier California food. Last Monday I took part in a very rich decadent feast. In one sitting put on 5 lbs. It took me the entire week and this weekend to work off those 5 lbs. But at least now I know how much exercise it takes to work off one rich delicious meal. So I'm already thinking ahead. Thanksgiving: that's about a week of HARD exercise. Christmas is about two weeks, New Year's is about 5 days. That's a month of exercise (or about 40-50 hrs) just to get back into pre-holiday shape.

Or there's another possibility: I could just eat healthy during the holidays.



So now I'm trying to lose another 10 lbs before Thanksgiving so I have a holiday cushion. See, body: we can work through this. I'm not going to starve you or deprive you as long as we're willing to put in the work.
