Playing "beat the clock" tonight...

I was trying to make it to bed by 2, now I'm going for 2:30, lol! My intent was 8 hours sleep before I get up to hit the gym tomorrow, and I may still get it. I'm still trying to do a 3 day split (chest and back, legs, then arms and shoulders) and get some cardio in each time, but keep getting there later than I want to and the cardio is suffering, therefore I'm not bouncing right back down to the weight I was when vacation began last month!

Of course, fighting through the Ruffles and Vanilla Wafers withdrawal after spending two weeks mostly in the car and munching isn't helping that battle, either! The week I went back to work I did even more damage, as I touched peanut butter for the first time in a year (when I came home, worse yet) and went through a half a large jar of Skippy in about 3 days...with a spoon!

Slowly gaining control over my diet again, and the rest will fall into place...or fall off of place...or something like that, anyway!

Happy Wednesday!

Sleep well, my friend!

No worries about the workout, I am sure the results will come, or fall off, or fall over as you say.....
Aloha!

Keep fighting Alan. Vacation time is always hard on the diet. Slow and steady will get you back to where you want to be. Now that I have the doctor's okay to exercise more, I'll be using you as my role model to get my weight down to where it should be.
