Weekly weigh-in: ******
Total loss: -*****
I’m on the road this week, chillaxing up near Glacier National Park, a thousand miles or more from my ol’ pal, the bathroom scale.
I may be losing my weekly weigh-in, but I’m gaining something else in the process: well, yeah… it’s a few pounds that I’m gaining, but you know how that goes.
You start off with good plans and high hopes, and then you pull out of your driveway…
My wife Anita and I have an old saying that we use as an excuse for our occasional overindulgence: “Everything’s just so delicious!” Well, it is!
I really do appreciate a really good meal, a nice bottle of wine, a decadent dessert. I don’t think, over the years, that those kinds of things were necessarily my problem. No, what did me in was the everyday poor choices, the mindless snacking, the piss-poor habits married with a much-too-sedentary lifestyle.
Our plans for this trip involve plenty of hiking, plenty of activity, plenty of get-up-and-go. I’m certain that the calories won’t balance out at the end of the day, but it won’t be a complete disaster.
And who knows? Maybe I’ll be chased by a grizzly bear and really get a good workout in…
