Battling the Dad Bod – Monday update 8-25-17.

I’m getting rather embarrassed that I seem to be singing the same old song every Monday. Lots of food, not enough exercise, and a growing apathy about it. Last week’s plan to transition to Focus T-25 and really push myself was a dud.  I just put in minimum effort and didn’t really try at all.

I did some hiking in Monteagle this weekend, but not enough to make a huge difference. I didn’t go on any bike rides, despite the weather being perfect. I’m really not sure what I will do to get motivated again. I was so focused on working hard during my 90 days of Insanity and I would really like to regain that drive. The cycling videos I downloaded seem like they could be a good start, but I need to design a structured workout program in order to have some motivation and accountability.

I have been eating a ton of crap too. More ice cream, junky bread, and chips, the last of which I really don’t even like that much. It really does feel like an addiction.

I’m feeling a bit hopeless and not too optimistic about this week. Maybe I will start swimming, although that would involve going to a different, less convenient YMCA. I also like racquetball as a fun source of exercise, but I don’t have anybody to play with. I just know that I really need to make some changes immediately.
