I went out west to visit family in April, and that basically meant a couple of things - - not enough working out (none, in fact), and too much food. Wayyyy too much food. So the past month or so has been basically spent fighting a holding action to get down to my earlier low weight.
The biggest challenge, frankly, was getting my head back into proper eating. I had a couple of weeks of eating simply ridiculous amounts of food, and it has taken me a couple of weeks just to train my body back to not craving snacks all the time. I don't generally crave snacks as a rule, but I find that when I get back into the snacking mindset it takes me a couple of weeks of going "snack cold turkey" before I stop craving snacks. Once I get the snacking out of my system I find it much easier to stick to a sensible eating plan. So yeah, there's that addictive personality thing I still need to watch out for, even after all these years of working out.
Once I got back home it was easier to get right back into the workout routine at least. And Mr. Fitness has been coming over each week to kick my ass right and proper, which has been great. We have had 22 training sessions together and the differences have been profound. I still have a ways to go, but compared to where I was last December, I have seen real progress working with the personal trainer.
So, net net things are still going well. Lots of things going on to keep me busy and some new workout equipment that I will post about shortly.
