My Sins This Week Are Manifold …

Chief among them is my lack of posting.  I even missed the sacrosanct “Five Things Wednesday.”  I know several of you check this space often, and your loyalty should be rewarded with regularity.  The only excuse I can offer is that it’s been a particularly heavy week.  Next week is a vacation, and I promise to find blogging time in between the beach and the pool.  Mea Culpa.

I haven’t been working out in any kind of organized fashion.  Even the push-ups have been forgotten this week.  My excuse, again, is a busy, busy week.  And a really uncomfortable shoulder/back thing I have goin’ on.  Mea Culpa.

I’ve gone against my own advice repeatedly this week.  Two (2) slices of strawberry cheesecake Wednesday evening.  Restaurants nearly every night (told you it was a busy week.)  Extra helping of really tasty pasta at home earlier in the week (at least it was whole-wheat pasta).  Really no excuse for going off the rails this way.  Mea Maxima Culpa.

And my punishment?  264.  Gained a pound.  Which is actually more like two pounds, since not only did I gain one, I didn’t lose one, so it changes the schedule.  23 pounds in 20 weeks, when it could have been 25 pounds in 20 weeks.  That’s unpleasant.  I don’t like stopping my own momentum, especially after such a great week last week.

So, yes, next week is a vacation, but there’s no reason I can’t be on track just because I’m not in my house and my office.  Just requires a little more intent.

The good news is that I have lots to write about in the coming days – two things to look for are a piece on strokes that I’ve been putting off for some time and one recommended by a friend of the blog on a regimen recommended by the really old guy who runs Dole.  Stay tuned for more upbeat posts in the coming days.
