Gravity really likes me, but I think I'd prefer to just be friends. (Project CXC, Day VII)

Swimming today.

And weigh-in today.

I weighed 253.



I was even feeling pretty skinny this morning, and thinking that weigh-in might work out pretty well.

I don't know if I put on a bit of weight during the week Mr F was having all his problems and I didn't work out; I've heard that you can lose your conditioning in as little as a week, which is kind of funny because I don't think I was conditioned, in the first place, but also if that's the case then what about how I've worked out for the past week already?  What about that, universe?

I just need to know who to sue.

Anyway, for the past few days I've added another little bit to this exercise program.  I really really really don't want to diet or strictly count calories or anything, so I'm hoping this will help: I've cut out snacking after 8 p.m.

What I used to do was I'd eat dinner, and not have dessert at dinner time, because after the boys go to bed I like to take a few minutes to relax and read or watch TV and I'd usually have a snack then -- nothing large, but still, a snack.

I've also heard, though, that you're not supposed to eat before bed, so I decided: no more eating after 8 p.m.  At all. 

And so far I've stuck to that, and my reward is gaining a pound.

Knock it off, gravity.  I've about had it up to here with you.

Today's workout:  Swimming, long pool, 34 laps, 23:30.
Latest Weight: 253. pleh.
 Today's song that I was humming as I swam and then I realized that it talks about gravity which was probably why it popped into my head:  Down To Earth, Peter Gabriel:

While I was humming that, I was also thinking of Dory from Finding Nemo, and she inspired me to (A): just keep swimming,

And also to start a new series on The Best Of Everything, which you should check out: POP CULTURE WORKOUTS!

You know, it is possible that we're experiencing gravity fluctuations.

You haven't lost weight because you gained it in muscle. So you're thinner but way stronger and more ripped. I speak the truth.

You're in Wisconsin, right? I'm pretty sure that's the problem. I saw a thing on the food channel about the foods at the Wisconsin state fair. That stuff comes straight from a Simpson's episode. You may not attend the fair, or eat the foods they offer, but it's like being in the wake of a tsunami, you suffer the consequences regardless.
