I worked hard physically today . . . enough so that I am going to call it my “third exercise” for the week.

Dinner was a little off target, but given the situation I’ll let that be okay.

I am doing well, eating mostly per FFL.  Even in the place I am not eating per FFL, the eating is mostly healthy like snacking on fruit later in the day

Exercise: 24 Hour Fitness (235.0)

CKT: 5 Minutes

Still (mostly) on track.

Exercise: 24 Hour Fitness (236.75 Semi-Official Scale)

Some liberties with eating, but also mostly on track.

Found a Yoga instructor I can respect and learn from, life it pretty full right now though, I’m not sure if I can hook up with that right now or not.

I don’t even know where the information came from (probably a JR seminar), but I recently came to really understand the power of visualization and a better way of doing it.  We’ll have to see if that can help me achieve my goals in a healthy, but swifter pace.

Exercise: Yoga

CTK: 5 Minutes

I’ve been taking some liberties with food recently . . . it isn’t so much I want “bad food”, but I have been wanting “hot and spicy” and salad just doesn’t fit that bill most of the time.

I have been a little “liberal” in my eating of late.  Close to FFL, but I haven’t been “as good” lately as I know makes me feel better.

I had this “feeling” I had not blogged recently, still I was surprised it was over two weeks.

The first week was because of a conference I went to.  I was very distracted in a most wonderful way.  Lots of great information and interestingly enough it all supported what I am doing.  Eat lots of fruits and vegetables, get your rest, get your exercise.  They put a lot more information and some fun “exercises” around that of course, but that was the bottom line and certainly supports what I’ve experienced of the last 6 to 9 months.

However, that doesn’t explain the rest of the missed time.  Oddly, while I had a great time at Conference, I find myself since “unbalanced” in some why I cannot explain.  Part of it is simple, I am fighting an ear infection and not physically feeling my best.  Still, beyond that, some part of me is tired of “being good”.  The good news is that I have interest in going back to my old eating habits, but I would like some more variety and tastes than I am currently getting.  I need to do something to support myself long term.

I clearly miss spicy . . . particularly pepper and “hot” . . . I had to figure out how to get those in my salads somehow.

I am doing well on exercise, though with my body dragging it has been more of a chore recently than it normally is.

Send me the Light please . . . I’m processing something and trying to balance . . .

So when I went to exercise and found myself at 236.25 . . . I was surprised for a moment.  I had considered myself to be “eating badly” in the last week or so and expected bad news.  Don’t get me wrong, 236 isn’t great news, but it was “about the same” which was good.

On reflecting on that, I realized how much progress I have made.  My “being bad” now is so much more health and I used to eat, that I can maintain reasonable health.  My “bad” now doesn’t include Pizza or Steak and Potatoes, so things ARE improving both physically and health wise for me.

No CKT yet this week . . . I have to get on with that.

I was sitting in the last DSS class considering the reasons that I had “come close”, but oh . . . let’s call it how I hold it inside . . . “FAILED” to achieve my goal.

It suddenly occurred to me that once again I had changed the rules on myself.  At the time I set the goal of “230 in June”, there was not official way to weigh myself.  There was not rule about “before exercise” or “after exercise” or anything about how I would be dressed.

All of that was something I had added later.  So once again (I believe I have blogged on this before), I had changed the rules to my disadvantage and then when I came up short, I blamed myself.

How typically Frank.

So . . . with that realization, weighing in after exercise and without half my cloths . . . I made my original commitment.

Nuff said . . .

New goal . . . 220 by Living in Grace.  I haven’t had time to update all the part of this blog to reflect those new goals, but I will soon . . . probably this weekend.

My last chance to make my goal.

Bad News: By official weigh in standards as stated earlier in this blog (before exercise, with all gym cloths and towel), I missed: 235.5.

Good News: After exercise (still dehydrated), no shirt, no towel, no shoes: 230.75.

It is a cheat, but I’ll take it.

New goal: 220 by Living In Grace (December).

Love and Light to all who read this blog.
