Slow and Steady she goes.. I think there is a song with that line. Hmmmm… Regardless, that is how Tony is feeling. Yes, the weight is coming off slower than he would like but it has been steady and he is learning many new things about weight loss, exercise and himself that are keeping him plugging right along.
I have talked about it in previous posts, that he is learning portion control and for him that is a huge things. I too have been learning more about portion control just watching the size of the prepared meals he eats helps me realize I too was eating more than my body needed. It is not easy to portion control when you are not used to it. I see so many people in restaurants eating huge helpings and clean their plate because they paid for it, and it is sad that we as a whole over eat. We don’t need all that food.. what is wrong with us?
Well, what is wrong is that food is for some a favorite pastime. Tony and I love to eat out and do so often. When we eat out we always treat ourselves to things we wouldn’t eat at home. So, generally that is not a healthy food. Take this weekend for instance. We went out with friends on Friday night, Tony had many beers and we shared a plate of giant nachos. The nachos were not really a bad thing, as it had chicken, peppers, olives, lettuce, and tomatoes but the beer.. not so good. We got up on stage and did what we love to do, sing and play.
Well he paid for the beer, big time on Saturday. So so sick. He never gets sick from drinking but as he gets older the drinking gets less and less and not sure why but it kicked his butt this time. He even did a little praying to the porcelain god LOL! Not really a way to try and lose weight. But, being a bit hung over always makes him want to be naughty so we ended up going to one of our favorite pizza places last night and we shared a large pizza and some deep fried green beans. But, since he didn’t really eat all day due to not feeling to well it probably wasn’t as bad as it sounds. But, still not good. So, today, back on the wagon.
Tony has been still working on the running as he is getting ready for that race on June 1st. Today, I drove him exactly 3 miles from home and dropped him off. He ran the whole way back. It took 30 min 10 seconds. I am so impressed, and proud. Never in my dreams did I think he would run, that far. I tried to run with him on Thursday and due to my foot still being sore I did a little over a mile and had to stop. I can’t wait till I can run with him. Soon, very soon. I do know we will enjoy more biking, hiking, and walking this summer due to him into the fitness more and my foot not hurting since I had the bunion surgery.
Check back next week to see how week 8 went.
