Good week: I lost a bit, and generally felt like I was back in the routine a bit after my previous week's indiscretions. I was held back from making more progress, since I was in crunch time for some big projects having to do with finishing my Masters, which obviously took precedence over heading to the gym in my "free time." I made it to the gym several times this week, but hopefully I'll be back in the groove from now on.
Food cravings: There were a few, namely last night when driving an hour back home from playing a concert in Wheeling, WV, where I had eaten the salad I brought for dinner at 5:00 PM and was driving past numerous fast food joints at 10:30 PM, feeling like I could eat a horse. I reminded myself of my impending progress report day weigh-in, and was able to stave off the cravings until I got home and had a banana, my daily dark chocolate and a few almonds. Not by any means my ideal time to eat, but I had to have something, and that was some minimal damage! Victory...
Coming later today: my editorial on health/weight loss obstacles, in response to your submissions on my Q&A call earlier this week. Thanks again for those of you who responded, and I'll look forward to doing my best to help you out!
