As you may know by now, I have started on the path to a healthier lifestyle by exercising on a regular basis. In the past 8 weeks, or so, I’ve lost about 6 pounds and a lot of my moobage. (I would have lost more weight but I’ve been lifting weights now too and the added muscle messes with my weight loss. So I now go by the mirror test. If I can stand to look at myself in the mirror, then I’m doing okay.) I can now run three miles pretty easily and I look pretty darn good with my shirt off. You’ll just have to trust me on that one.
Lately, however, when I’ve been on the treadmill at the gym and I’m watching the calorie counter creep up to my goal 400+ calories burned, I start rationalizing things in my head.
I’ll think, “If I stop running at 250 calories, then I can just eat less tomorrow and it’ll be a wash.” Then I start thinking about what I can cut out of my diet the next day that will help me reduce my caloric consumption enough so that I may step off the treadmill early in good conscience. The only thing that is off limits is my morning mocha. Moobs or no moobs, a guy needs his coffee.
In fact, I have a new strategy. Since eating celery apparently burns more calories than it provides, if I go on a celery & mocha diet, I should still lose weight. I’m kinda surprised this isn’t being touted on late night TV as the next big thing. Maybe I should patent it.
Oh well. First things first. I need to go get my mocha. And some celery.
