So I was sitting here this morning after I did not get to the gym, again, and I was thinking about the last few weeks. I am not calling this a plateau just yet but I am ready to tell you that since I got to 320 I am finding things much more difficult. I would like to tell you that it is the time of the year, or that I am just that busy, or a host of other excuses. But the fact of the matter is that I am reverting back to old habits. Habits of eating out of boredom, and making poor choices. being habitually sedentary. The good thing is that I am noticing it. So that is a positive. It is also good that I have continued to lose during the past month or 6 weeks. I am not unhappy about my progress at all, I have just noticed a change in my habits. That all needs to stop.
I am committing to getting in 5 workouts prior to weigh in on Tuesday and I am committing to 6 workouts the next week. I will stop eating out of boredom and if I do I will make the right choices. I will begin to track religiously again and right this ship. Those are the good habits I need to keep up with.
I know I know. You're saying, "Matt, you have come so far, you continue to lose, your doing great." But this is the thing. I have to replace the bad habits with good ones. I know what I am capable of and it is certainly more than what I have been doing. It means sacrifice and hard work. But lets face it. That sacrifice and hard work means years on my life, and a much more reward quality of life now and in the years to come. I wanna be that old dude who you see and you think "man, that guy is really in shape and looks so good for his age." I know you know the one I am talking about.
So here we go. Breaking the bad habits and replacing them with good ones. Part II
