It felt great getting back into the gym tonight, to execute my weight lifting routine. The part I hate about traveling is that my daily routine can be disrupted some times because not every fitness center, in each hotel, has the equipment I use. But I still manage to make due with what I have. Anyway, getting back into the swing of things, on the weight lifting side, felt awesome. I was sweating up a storm today and I can really feel that I had a good workout tonight. And if I am sore in the morning, that only backs up the hard work that I put into it tonight.
I have been amazed with how my weight keeps on moving down, even though I had an up and down eating week. I mean I didn't over do it, but I still managed to put more food away than I normally tend to do. I guess the extra cardio workouts I had to do, when I didn't have weights, helped to keep my weight in check. The exciting part about this morning's weigh-in was that I was 223.8 lbs! This means I am getting closer to to accomplishing my next goal of making it to 222 lbs. That also means that when I reach this goal, I will have lost 80 lbs since the start of my mission! I am getting pumped up right now just thinking about.
Anyway, it is getting late and I have an important meeting in the morning to attend with my boss. Until tomorrow my friends, have a great night!
