Feeling much better!

The sickness is still lingering but I am feeling much much better.

Got back on the cycle today and had a quality 30 minute ride. That felt good. First decent workout since Monday which means I had 4 days of couch and bed with work sandwiched in between. That is the longest break I have taken since I started this quest for health. Even with the fact that it was due to illness it was still very unsettling because it felt like I was drifting back into my very recent past of being sedentary. The major difference this time being that I was still eating healthy as opposed to eating everything in sight.

I really feel like I'm starting to make exercise a habit which made taking this break hard from the standpoint of erasing the progress of forming that habit. I have to remember that I am the one in control. I am the one that decides. I rule this body and I will continue to do with it what I want to do which is eat right and workout.

Don't know what to expect from Mondays weigh in. I'm just glad to be getting somewhat back into a routine.



  1. Once you get back into your groove, the weight will continue to fall off. Don't sweat a 4 day break. The important thing is getting back on track today, which you did!

  2. I am feeling similarly...had a bummer of four days and with a quick peak at the scale, I've lost 0 pounds so far this week. I'm working hard this weekend. Glad that you are on the mend as well, brother.

    You are different now, from your old self. Because you KNOW TOO MUCH now (me too!). We know that we can lose weight, day by day and week by week.

    Soldier on, Marcus.

  3. So what do we do about the voice Marcus? How do we kill it?

    Keep on keepin' on...

  4. Things felt better for me today...maybe the lack of weight loss for the previous 5 days somehow caught up and I can actually show a loss. The scale is fickle, huh? Anyway, I guess we'll know tomorrow.
