DAY#97 - Progress Check #14
I now weigh 260lbs. Dropped 6lbs this past week taking me to a grand total of 93lbs lost. I am excited to see 100lbs. My next goal of 249 is 11lbs away. I am writing this on a Sunday morning as yesterday was an epic day and I had no time to do anything.
This next week is going to continue my craziness and I ask for you prayers. I am still in the middle of preparing for summer festival season which is maybe my busiest time of year. I decided that all of our scanning equipment needed new programs and improvements and am in the middle of trying to reprogram all our scanners with updates that still have some bugs that need worked out of them. By Tuesday AM I need to have them all packed sorted and shipped. Then I am shipping myself out to Northern Michigan for the rest of the week to help scan at a festival. Arriving back home next Sunday just to leave and go to the Creation Festival.
So lots of travel and some stress to get stuff done. I have done it before but what concerns me is I plan on sticking to my diet. Which means packing and making my own food from a remote location in a hotel while running around like a chicken with my head cut off. On a normal summer festival trip the festival provides me with food and i just eat whatever I want/whenever I can. And that may consist of Funnel cakes, some turkey hill ice cream shakes, fresh cut french fries, etc. Nothing good, but yet delicious. :)
Having the habit of being a stress eater and being in a stressful environment filled with a mix of yummy comfort food while relying on my own skills to prepare healthy food that is on my protocol from my refridgeless/microwaveless hotel room will be a crazy challenge. I am pretty determined to see it through. Please pray for me about this.
I also want to thank people who send me words of encouragement via facebook and in person. It does help, your thoughtfulness can help to ease over some rough days. I definitely try to remind myself of your kind words and support when I am having a bad day and that support makes this whole thing a bit easier. Thank you for being my friend.
So for the next 10 days, do not expect to hear as much from me. I am going to be busy. Running around like a crazy man. I am hoping to post one or two things a week vs. my usual four or five.
I hope everyone that is on this journey with me had a good week. I wish you well. If you have questions feel free to drop me an email.
