Last Time, I Promise

I have the hardest time keeping up with blogging. I guess it is because I don't find myself to be that interesting, nor the things I experience to be interesting enough for anyone to want to read about them. Couple that with my propensity to not really fully commit to blogging and we have this blog here- a mishmash of Start Ups and Do Overs. I think I may have finally conquered it, however. I don't think blogging daily is the answer- weekly is more my style. So we'll go with that.

Today marks Day 2 of the latest weight cut. I hate the term "diet" because it has such a negative connotation to it. I took up rugby in July and have been having fun with that. With practices twice a week, I was cutting weight quickly and efficiently. Once orchestra was back in session, however, and my practices were cut to once a week, I could feel the weight coming back. The pants were tight, I was feeling sluggish- all the classic crap. I took one of my credit cards that we had paid off and bought a 60-pill supply of Hydroxycut after reading some great reviews online, and so far I'm a little iffy on it. I love the fact that I have dropped exactly 2lbs since yesterday morning, but the adjustment to the high caffeine count leaves me feeling a little sick at times. It does give me a good amount of energy, though; yesterday I was a little too bouncy and had a hard time sitting still. I ended up going home and running some intervals on the treadmill. I also went a little too hard and almost got sick afterwards. Now it's time to hone the food intake. Lunches are soups or salads- my favourite thus far is a Thai Kitchen instant ramen. The noodles, though, are rice noodles and they are FANTASTIC. I pack one into one of my lunch boxes and make it just before I pick up The Hubster, and simply eat in the car. Easy to track, easy to make, and easy to stay the course.

My goal is to hit 125, but still stay strong enough to continue as a rugby prop. Even though it is the only position I've played, it's my favourite. It's the big boys in the front, pushing and hitting- definitely right up my alley :)
