Eating the week of Feb. 8 was good during the day, but I am still having some problems with dinner fitting in with all the rest of what I am eating. Because of work, swimming and a power outage, I only had two workouts this week – one with Trevor Tieche (my personal trainer) and one without. They went fine, but I overslept one morning due to a power outage so Trevor was waiting for me and I never showed up. I called as soon as I realized I was late.
As I have said before, this month will be my most difficult because of the time I will be out of town for swimming meets. I am gone four days this week and three days next week, so eating will be a challenge. I have made workout arrangements at both facilities, so I hope I hope to do some cardio.
I have received a lot of very positive feedback this past week, but I did get a bit of attitude adjustment on Feb. 13. I was sitting in a folding chair, judging the sectional diving meet in Fremont and feeling pretty good about my weight loss. In the middle of the meet, just as a diver was about to go off of the board, I could feel the hinges on the folding chair begin to give out. I tried to get hold on the ladder from the pool, which was right in front of me, but to no avail. I missed it and ended up flat on my backside with my clipboard flying and the chair right under me. Pretty embarrassing, but the people told me they have had several of those chairs give out in the past few weeks. It was pretty funny, though. I’ve lost a couple more pounds so am very close to the 300 mark.
