So last week wasn’t easy. I’m a stress eater and have been my whole life … and to say I was stressed last week is an understatement. Having to deal with the death of my Gran was harder on me than I realized it would be so my week was spent thinking about sodas and cookies and not sleeping well and not working out hardly at all. I got a couple of runs in and hit up Winter Weightlifting … and ate a lot of pizza and an enormous fried fish sandwich (in honor of my sweet Gran) … and a milkshake and Big Pal with Cheese from Pal’s.
All that to say, I was fully prepared to see the scale go in the wrong direction this week and that’s okay. These things happen and what I’ve been telling clients left and right lately is YOU’RE GOING TO SCREW UP! It’s going to happen, take it to the bank. The important thing is to brush it off, keep moving. My man Muhammad Ali has a great quote that says Inside of a ring or out, ain’t nothing wrong with going down. It’s staying down that’s wrong. and I believe that’s true in all aspects of our lives — ESPECIALLY when it comes to our weight loss / fitness journeys!
We’re going to blow it. We’re going to do the wrong thing. In those instances we have two choices: go the champion’s route and pick up where we left off and keep doing it over and over again until we get what we want … or go the bum’s route and declare ourselves defeated all Glass Joe style.
I know what route I’m taking — what say you?
Anyway, there’s good news, regardless — it follows:
Weekly Weigh-In: 223.2 Pounds (3.8 Pounds Lost — Goal: 215 Pounds, or 12 Pounds Lost)
Heyyyyy, whaddaya know. Even after a week of absent-minded consumption and infrequent exercising, I was still able to bring this number down by half a pound! I’m happy with the number going down still but now I’m behind on my goal so we gotta tighten up this week. Staying on that calorie deficit, staying on that awesome new workout plan.!

The last few weeks of January are going to be a mad rush as I’m fully booked for PT! Good news is that’s money for the month of January but the bad news is some of these clients will not be renewing due to travel and changed priorities. This means I’m probably going to have some openings for February if you want to join the Viking Army! Message me if you’re into it, follow me on Instagram or follow me on Facebook if you want to keep up!
