I don’t know what it is about coming back to day shift, but I find that I am more sleep deprived when I’m working normal hours. Due to this messed up sleep schedule, I did not make it to the gym this week. That’s not to say I wasn’t active though. I made sure that I was up and active as much as possible, at work and at home. Turns out sweeping the floors is a pretty good way to keep moving. I’ve also been watching a friend’s dog, so taking him on walks has also helped. In the end I haven’t lost any weight, but I’ve maintained my weight. Now that we have a three day weekend and I can finally get back to a normal sleep schedule, I can get back to the gym and start moving that scale lower. 39 days to NYCC and I’m looking good.

Feeling good! I’m down 5 lbs now and it’s starting to show. My pants fit a little better, which is always a plus. Weight lifting is going well too. I’ve been able to really push myself and start to make some progress. It’s not much, but considering where I started, I’m pretty pleased. I’m not going to break any records, but it’s a really great feeling to get in one more curl than last time or add ten lbs to the leg press. I’d like to get to the gym a bit more often than I have been (only 2-3 days a week) but life has been getting in the way a little bit. Come Monday however, I’m off of night shift and my house is back in order, I can go back to 3-4 days a week, which is where I’d like to be. Fifty four days to NYCC and I can’t wait!
Week 5 has come to a close and I am back in the weight lost category. I made it to the gym twice this week and adjusted back to my normal, much more sensible diet. Not only that, but it feels good. I’m down about a pound and with Les Mis rehearsals over my gym time will only increase. 68 days until NYCC and I can’t wait.
My first week of the Fit 4 Con Challenge is over and I’ve lost 1 pound. I was hoping for a little more, but given that it’s Week 1 and it was a holiday week, I’m not too worried about it. I am however more than a little sore from this week. I’d forgotten how much these first couple weeks can hurt. Of course it’s totally worth it. Right now I’m doing 30 minutes on the elliptical plus so basic weight lifting. Once I get back into the swing of things I’ll start to add in more lifting to target specific problem areas. 95 more days and I can totally do this!
