My life has been very hectic lately, and last week was especially crazy. Despite being out of town for part of the week and having a very unusual schedule, I was able to eat very clean all week long. I did miss two workouts, however. I did not eat any “cheat” meals or junk food all last week, but last night we had company over and I ordered pizza for everyone. Actually I’d planned to grill lean burgers last night, but the rain was coming down in buckets and my planned cookout had to be canceled. Anyway, I didn’t make any significant cutting progress over the past week, but with everything that was going on I consider it a victory that I didn’t lose any ground.

I am struggling with moderation. While one part of me is really enjoying the more laid back approach I’ve recently adopted, another side of me is growing increasingly restless because my progress has been agonizingly slow. I knew that making the change from my usual “all or nothing” attack to a more casual approach was going to present new challenges and carry a learning curve, but the adjustment has been even more difficult than I thought it would be. I’m going to give it another week or two, but if I’m still feeling displeased with my progress then I’m going back to my old ways – at least until this cut is over.

My vacation time at work resets in just two months, but I’ve only used 5 of my 19 vacation days (plus I have 2 unused personal days) for the year. The vacation and personal days don’t roll over, so I’ll probably be taking several weeks off over the next couple of months. While the time off will be more than welcome, remaining on my cutting diet and resisting the temptation to slack off while on holiday is going to be a real challenge.

I’m going to wrap this up and get some breakfast going. See you tomorrow
