I thought about bowing out of this–good sign that I shouldn’t.
Weight (result) goal: 180
That’s a pretty big scary goal for me, and not one I’ve wanted to accept. Been hiding behind a focus on strength training lately, but in the interest of being a more balanced and useful human it’s time to get serious about my weight, and balancing endurance/leanness with strength.
Diet (tactics) goals:
- Restrict alcohol to special occasions (holidays, birthdays, guests) and then only in moderation.
- Eliminate snacking using TRF/intermittent fasting min 13 hours no food, but shoot for 16 at least 3 days a week. No snacks between meals
- One gallon of water per day (helps with snacks and a whole lot more)
I’m pretty sure those are my problem areas, but we’ll soon see if I need to expand that list.

200.6 today. So far today on point with snacking, but off on water. Probably both for the same reason that I’m chained to desk.

Always a good day to drop some weight. I find myself snacking a lot which is tough. Water is clutch…keep it up!

203 today. within historic fluctuations, but definitely a sign that I need to tighten things up a bit.

Great realization. One thing this group is good for is holding a mirror to one’s self.

Guilty as charged. Weighed in at 198 going into the weekend, but just stepped on at 201.6
Couple of days not doing the calorie tracking was all it took.
Thanks for the push.

195.4 This morning. Not bad after the holiday, but coming down with the latest daycare cold that the kiddos brought home may have helped more than my discipline. I’ll take it though. Going into the next couple weeks. I’ll be locking things down going into GrowRuck so that should help as well.

197.5 time to reign in the post GrowRuck hall pass, and get back down to business.
