Week 76 Weigh in – “OK, get back on the horse”

Well, the vacation is over. I last posted here 15 days ago, the day I left for vacation. We’ve been back from the trip since Monday, but apparently I have still been on a vacation when it comes to minding my Ps and Qs on my health journey. Today I tipped the scale at 220.6 pounds. That represents a 4.8 pound gain in 2 weeks. Ugh. I told my wife this morning as we were passing at the bathroom door. Her answer was “OK, get back on the horse.” And, that’s just what I plan to do.

In my last post I said I was going to walk 100 miles in August. Sadly, I didn’t keep track of my walking well on vacation, so that is out the window. Oh, yeah, and then I didn’t do much this week.

Starting today I am going back to publishing my WW tracker. That worked well for me. Honestly, I had very little cell coverage on vacation, so tracking was difficult there. I have no such excuse since coming back, only to say that I didn’t get it done.

For the week ahead the plan is simple. Track everything. Walk more. Look up the address to that gym place I was going to, and get back to work.

The good news is that I had a great vacation. I came back feeling refreshed for the challenges ahead. I am disappointed this morning, but honestly not surprised. I knew that while away I indulged on snacks and adult beverages. I know that we spent more time in the car and less on the trails than we had anticipated. For that I have no regrets, it is just the facts of the trip. What disappoints me more is how I have done THIS week since being back. I have had no trips to the gym, and my tracking has been spotty. With this morning’s wake up call, I am – as my wife suggested – climbing back on the horse. Onward to better things in the days and weeks ahead.



  1. The best part of this blog post was that you had fun. Having said that I agree with your wife. Get on it now. You have had a few months of not so cool results. It is time to tighten those reigns! (Speaking more to myself that you). 🙂
