I was doing good with two exercise sessions per day, one of resistance and another of walking or using my wife's elliptical when the weather was poor. I had to back off to M, T, Th, F on the resistance exercises when I bumped up the resistance some. My arthritic shoulder wasn't putting up with it, so I backed off to where it doesn't hurt. The walking has been great.
For food, I eat about five times a day, just little bits of something. It's what my gastroenterologist recommended that I do. Apparently, my tummy isn't happy with having much in it. I try to have a slightly larger lunch, usually like a ploughman's lunch, or a bowl of soup and something crunchy, a salad, or on Friday's the full-on protein onslaught of buffalo wings. I allow myself one treat per day on the days that I exercise, and booze counts as a treat. So if I have a little chocolate, that's it. Or if I have a cookie, that's it. If I have a glass of wine with dinner, that's my treat.
I've been slacking off a bit on each end, and need to reinvigorate. The goal of reaching 230# by my physical in August helps. Final goal is 210#, but I sincerely doubt that I'll ever make it unless I take up bike riding again.
I like the way zguitar thinks. Especially since he's telling me to buy a travel guitar. I'd spend a lot more time in the woods or on the water if it weren't for Daddy-duty, but to some degree I can't give myself that treat if I want to spend time with the girls. Getting the girls to the woods, well... it's a nice thought.
