I decided to call my doctor today and asked to pick up my check up numbers from my annual physical in January. I think it will be interesting to see where I was with my weight and where I am now. True, I didn’t start this experiment as a weight loss program, but it’s a nice side effect. My final official blog tomorrow night should have some interesting results to share.
Unofficially though, I plan to continue to blog through the month of April so please plan on checking in on me during the month. I’ve decided that I will continue forward with the experiment and add on April to see what happens. I’ve reached a point where I don’t think I can just grab some sugary food on Friday and tell myself it was a nice experiment, but it isn’t who I am. The results I feel in my joints, legs, and attitude put me in a situation where I want to keep moving forward. I almost wonder how many people do something similar to what I have and end up just continuing forward and not going back to their old ways.
I might just end up raising the stakes a bit also. This weekend is my first convention of the year and I’ll be hanging around lots of geeky people and comfort food for long hours. My goal is to plan out my strategy and execute it so I’m not swayed by all the deliciousness available. I figure this will definitely test my resolve and give me an idea of a “real-world” situation. Either way, you’ll hear about it.
It would be great to hear from you after this month long trip. What do you think about me stretching it out for another month? Have you thought about trying the experiment yourself? What time frame do you think you could survive? One week, two, four, or more? Send me a message or post a comment, I’d love to know.
What I ate today
- Fresh batch of eggs and turkey Kielbasa with some extra sharp shredded cheddar on it.
- A basic salad for lunch.
- Dinner was meatballs with an orange type sauce. A side of Quinoa that you can put the meatballs on. A helping of broccoli.
- I feel like I should have eaten more today, but I was busy and got sidetracked.
Onward to the final “official” day – thirty one.
