I followed along on your blogs and have been cycling with my son and yes, still celebrating the wonderful feeling of hitting the milestone goal. Drinking the rest of the celebration champagne that was in the fridge.
Oh, and work has been busy...you know, some work travel too. And Mrs. Clyde still has this huge stressful thing that she is struggling through, so that has been on our minds. The "champagne" helps with that too.
And now, I am realizing that I have failed at my "make good choices every day" routine that enabled me to lose the 50 pounds. I have been so busy "enjoying" my success, that I have begun to erode that success.
True, there has been no actual champagne consumed, but for the past week or so, I have eaten horribly and just settled in to my old sedentary habits. I have played with the kids, we have gone out to eat, I have fiddled around with the iPod Touch...and did I mention the horrible eating??
So, it is time to get off the couch, put down the cereal bowl and quit the celebrating of the milestone goal and begin working toward my future goals.
Speaking of goals, I think I need to get a new short-term challenge to jump start me...something intense over the next week or 10 days. Anyone else out there notice that they have fallen and can't seem to get up? Any ideas for something short-term?
UPDATE: I'VE ACCEPTED PATRICK'S CHALLENGE: 50 MILES FROM FRIDAY MORNING THRU SUNDAY NIGHT. PICK YOUR POISON AND JOIN US. And over the weekend, let's think of something to do within the next two weeks or so. See you out there this weekend, my friends.
