I am sorry that I have not written in a little while I suck quick honestly. Lately I feel like I kinda suck at life. Let me catch you up a little. Last time we were here I was just getting back into a low weight routine. My elbow has gotten stronger and stronger. I am back to pretty much doing it all. It tweeks once in awhile and I still baby it a little. But that’s all relative. I have been in the gym working out as much as I can. As I write this.. I was there 5 days this week and really wanted to go this morning but after getting in late last night I just couldn’t peel my body out of the bed in time. So insert a little late morning guilt. But the truth is, my body might need the break. I still have to run all over the stage tonight and put on a show. And if I want to lift, I can do it here at home. And I probably will this afternoon. There is a boot camp at 4pm I can go to as well.
Let’s get into the scale. Last time we were here I had gained 5 pounds. Well I got rid of that and am now at 333.7 again. The frustration has set in. As I type this, I have 88 days till new years and 27 pounds to go. There is no failing at this. I can’t. I refuse to let myself down. But how? After losing 77 pounds so far this years, how do I finish this? What have I done right? What have I done wrong and where do I go from here? I have a decent team… I think so anyway. It’s a matter of really figuring out how to get them all on the same page and pushing forward.
So what am I doing wrong diet wise? Am I burning enough calories? Am I working out too much? Am I not doing enough? Am I not eating enough calories? Am I eating too many? They say that losing weight is a mathematical equation but I suck at math apparently. And don’t know where to turn to have it figured out. I don’t really want to do the Advocare 24 day challenge. I know it will work. But I really would like to do this eating properly. Setting myself up to eat right as a lifestyle. I am just frazzled and confused.
Yes, I know where I’ve been and I am a hell of a lot better than when I started but I started this blog, and while a lot of people don’t really know what I am doing because I’ve kept the nitty gritty to the blog and Twitter… I am not going to let those that do, and myself down. Especially myself.
I’ve been stuck in the 330’s since May 21st. WTF!!!!! Seriously. Something must be wrong with me.
We’ve been on the road with the band every weekend for the last month and we are done now. So it really is time to crank this up. I say that every week and in every blog. I need to stay out of Wawa’s and convenience stores for sure. My sweet tooth is coming back and I think I have to even get rid of my coffee. I can’t drink it black and it’s hard enough. Maybe starting this Monday, I shock the body a little with no sugar, low carns and low calories for a week and see what happens. Amp my workouts a little and go from there.
I am going to share this blog with some of my #teamfranco friends and see what they have to say. 27 pounds by New Years Eve with the holiday’s coming… If I could take the 34 pounds off before it and get under 300lbs for the first time in 10 years… that would be a dream come true.
Do I have any non-scale victories to talk about? I started to use the iPhone app, Couch to 5 K to ramp up my walks and get my heart rate going, I was able to fit into compression shorts and not look like a total jackass. I still look like a jackass. Just not a total one!
So I’ll leave you with that this week. If you are out there and have an idea. Send them my way!
Feel the love,
