Never fear, Fat Bastard is STILL here.

Two weeks since my last post, sorry for my absence friends.

But I have not been without epiphanies or reality checks. The first one directly involves my two week hiatus in posts.

It is funny how old habits don't die very easy. I have seen a glimpse of the horrible habits that have gotten me into this mess. Since the stamp of approval from my insurance company, the 40 inches of snow that has plagued the Northeast has melted to show the list of Spring chores around the house. My daughter is playing on two club soccer teams and her high school track team. An ambitious work project has eased its way outside of the typical 40-hour work week. And, the brake line in my Griswold-like mini-van has collapsed and will be in the shop until Wednesday, when I am scheduled to have jury duty. Oops, don't forget Easter shopping and cooking.

And what does all that mean? When was the last time this fat bastard has seen a treadmill? Food intake has been more than it should be. Don't get me wrong, I haven't fallen completely off the wagon, but the horse pulling the wagon has begun to slow.

Habits don't change easily, do they? The funny part is, I believe that if I checked, I would find a direct correlation between how much I post on this blog and how often I work out. Thanks for being there.

At any rate, my gym bag is in the car. Time to whip that pony back on course.

I hope everyone had a nice holiday.

  1. Good for you getting back on course. The second thing blogging gives me (the first is support) is accountability. It's amazing how knowing that others are also watching your progress and care about how you do can keep you moving in the right direction (so next time you're gone for two weeks I'm sending out the LB search and rescue party).

  2. Well it is wonderful that you are back! We missed you!

    I am sorry to hear about your van! I hate spending money on my car.

  3. The food demons are hitting me too. Eating too much and the band needs a tweak. But we'll still listen and still watch your back. But we won't jump through your computer screen and beat you up for not "being perfect" because nobody is.

    Hope you get back on track soon.

  7. Glad to hear from you. I've been off blogger for the past 4 days due to a busy schedule, so I need to get back on track myself.

  8. Wow, how true, accountability goes out the window when I'm not blogging and reading. I've had a bit of a break and blamed it on work, but I've just been lazy. Got a fill scheduled and will be right back at it, want to have a respectable loss when my bandiversary rolls up in late August. Glad to see you, looking forward to more updates.
