Phase 3, Day 1 Back on the Program

Dateline Wuxi, China, March 3, 2013

We’re back after a decadent five or six weeks of winter holiday spent in Thailand eating anything I felt like eating and drinking far too much scotch every single night with Ruth’s mom, Pat.  I can still do my belt up at the fourth hole back, but now it takes effort and the natural spot for the buckle tongue is in the third hole.  Amazing how quickly I can lose ground that was so hard to gain… er… lose.  Anyway, I’m back now.  My intention is to go strict for the rest of this term and see if I can actually get that six pack I’ve always wanted.

This morning I did 612 calories on the elliptical machine in 31 minutes.  Powered by toxins no doubt.  The elliptical machine obviously doesn’t like to sit idle.  It was really thumpy clumpy for the first twenty minutes of my workout, but smoothed out considerably for the last ten minutes or so.

Oatmeal with a small banana for breakfast.  I’m going to try to drink more water, and eat closer to the original plan.  Starting soon.
