The Inches Have Crept Back

So we went on vacation the first couple of weeks of June. Before that, I went through some funky depression. The point is that I didn't exercise regularly for quite some time. I would exercise here and there, but nothing consistent. Add to that the fact that I also have not been taking any oil or sugar water which lead to more eating. Mix all that together and what do you have?

Fat, fat, fat!

I noticed it when I got back from vacation ... my pants were a bit tight. It was a sad reality.

Well ... no more I say! The line in the sand has been drawn and in the nick of time too. I had made a vow to myself when I crossed the 200 lbs. line last year that I would never go back accross. This morning, after a solid 30 minute run and 20 minute cycle, I weighed in and was a bit shocked to see the number read 198.5!

It was embarassing.

But I am committed to getting back on track with the help of the Shangri-la diet.

I'm back to taking 3 flax oil capsules in the morning.

I'm back to eating a light lunch ... apple, yogurt and some crackers.

I'm back to taking two tablespoons of walnut oil at 4:00pm.

I'm back to eating a big salad for dinner and then calling it quits for the night.

I'm back to regular exercise.

I'm back.
