The last five months have been a see saw of life changes which I am doing my best to navigate.
To be totally transparent and honest with you and myself, I have definitely lost my way a bit when it comes to my fitness path.
More than a bit actually, because over the last 5 months, I have put on 25 pounds.
Yes, it is true. I was 175lbs back in March and 196.7lbs now.
Now, 196.7lbs is alot better than 245 or 250lbs, but the trend is going in the wrong direction.
I have been hiding, I have been embarrassed.
So, I know the first step is to acknowledge where I am at and to take full responsibility for being there.
That means to stop hiding, which I am doing by writing today.
I am going to get back on track because I owe it to myself and I will be fully open about it.
You might be wondering why I have been slowly putting on weight over the last five months.
I am not going to speak about it today, but I will in the future.
The important point is to catch where I am at now and to get back on track.
Can you relate to that?
I think the first of the month is as good as any to get back on track and get cracking.
First thing I will do this morning is to get some water and then do some pushups and go to the gym.
Put first things first and health is the most important.
Today is a special day.
I will be meeting one of my sons for the first time in many years.
I am very grateful for that.
Now how to do this at a deli without getting a pastrami on rye that will easily put me over the 200lb mark?
<h1>How to get back on track?</h1>
That is the question.
I can tell you what my greatest challenge has been over the last 5 months.
How to deal with illness without going off my plan.
That is a tough one cause when you have an organic illness which is different than just plain obesity, honestly who cares about fat percentage and body weight, I just wanted to feel okay and out of pain.
And now that I am , I have to figure out the other piece of the puzzle which is how to socialize without putting on the weight?
I am going to figure out how to get back on track.
I have to figure it out because it is urgent.
I promise that to myself!
I weighed myself to know where I am starting at, as I mentioned 196.7.
I got a quart of Evian water and an apple, and we are off.
Now I have to figure out what to have at Katz Delicatessen which has been in New York City since 1888 selling the Pastrami on Rye sandwiches, a pound of fresh cut pastrami on fresh rye bread that is potent enough to kill an elephant.
I will check out the menu in a bit and see if there is anything better I can go with!
