I’m Shaping Up; Week 8

Salt Lake City, San Francisco, Sacramento, Charlotte, New Orleans

My cross-country excursion last week threatened to break my efforts right open. I returned at o.2lbs heavier than I left. Yes, 0.2lbs! I even spent time in a small hotel gym on a loud and unstable treadmill. Most importantly, I ate smart and in moderation.   I did give in on the flight from San Fran to Charlotte and accepted the kind hostess’s offer for pretzels though.

Week 8

Here’s to holding each other accountable when the couch looks inviting and the snacks endless.


– 213.2 lbs (Strayed off strict diet, but maintained principles of healthy eating)


– Hotel gym twice but stayed active during the days.


– Traveled with a group of cops from across the country, and despite the hazing for avoiding carbs, I did okay.

– Overall, a break even week, and truly looking forward to returning to my strategic eating.

UNO Ring & BP

– Taking that ring off at will, and without the bloody knuckle! BP getting cozy in the 130s range. Consistency.

Monday – Sunday Goals:

– Return to pre-planned meals.

– Weight at 212 lbs (I think once I restart the program and exercise, I’ll be back on track)

– Add more endurance training. I’ve enjoyed resistance training after several years away from it while training for cycling and triathlon.
