After my post on Friday night, I settled in to watch a documentary on Beethoven. The dude was a total creeper: he went after teenage girls and married women, and bullied his nephew to the point of being suicidal, but again, I'm off topic... So watching the documentary, which was really excellent by the way (In Search of Beethoven), my brain was able to untwist itself and start thinking rationally, rather than being on the verge of a frantic, nervous break-down. Something about music does that for me, straightens out the brainwaves. I was able to calm down and look at my weight loss situation rationally. And I reaffirmed that it's not the plan. The plan is a solid, good one that will work. I just have to do it.
So, I've decided to focus on smaller goals and take it one day at a time. Instead of looking at the big picture, I'm going to concentrate on easier-to-manage goals. My first one is to reach 250 pounds. And I'm going to concentrate on each day as it comes. It doesn't matter what I did yesterday. And I can't do anything about tomorrow until it gets here. But I can concentrate on today and making sure that I do the best that I can.
In case you didn't read my last post, my plan is this: to maintain a negative calorie net using Lose It to track my calories. I'll do yoga twice daily, walk Noel daily, and do at least three non-consecutive days of cardio per week and three non-consecutive days of strength training a week. I plan on blogging a weekly recap on Saturdays.
Yesterday, I weighed myself to get the start weight for this go-around (hopefully, it's the last). Weighed 260.8 pounds (40.93 BMI), so I only have 10.8 pounds to go till my goal. Think I'll reward myself for getting there, but I'm not sure what I'll give myself. I guess we'll see when I get there.
On another note, I'm going to be doing some tinkering with the blog. If there's broken links, jacked up images, leave me a comment or @ me on Twitter.
