This week had its challenges but, I took them all head on and had a powerful week. This week involved a Cinco De Mayo lunch and I was so proud of myself for watching carefully what I ate. That’s right, I watched it disappear right off of my plate. I had decided that I would have Buddy’s Pizza and some cowboy caviar and a few other items but would eat it in moderation. It was one of the best guilt-free lunches I have had in 16 weeks. I went home that night and busted out a 4.5 mile walk and did the Biggest Loser Cardio DVD. WOW, that DVD still kills me. It works muscles that I didn’t know that I had. Besides the party, I took it upon myself to really step up my length and pace of the daily power walks with my wife. We are cooking at a pretty good pace and not stopping for breaks. When I went through the Border Patrol Academy back in the day, a good buddy told me that no matter how fast or how slow you go, just don’t stop moving. You can rest when you are finished. I can still hear those PT Instructors screaming at my chubby butt while I ran on those trails in the backwoods of Charleston, SC. It motivated me back then and it still motivates me today. Maybe I should hire Carlos to come up for a little 2 week boot camp workout. I know he would do it if I asked. Maybe I will go to Washington D.C. and train with him for a week. Either way you look at it, the sweat and burn are real and I am loving it. I can feel myself getting my wind and able to go farther. I lost 5.5 lbs this week and I earned each ounce of it with hard work and dedication. I have a long way to go and I said that I wanted to be in the teens before I leave for Cancun. I have 10 days to go and a huge week to bust a move and make that happen. I am going to put in 150% extra effort this week to get there. Stay tuned……new rule – no more White Castle’s in this office please!!!!!!!
