I posted a while ago about my current health kick. I successfully finished 90 days on Sunday.

I noticed partway through that there were some slight issues. I think I was doing too much gym leading to a flare up of plantar fasciitis and there were a few days where I needed a break. Finally I have a tendancy to backslide into eating sugary snacks after sustained exercise routines, rationalizing that I've earned it.

I decided to take a week off from the gym to let me recover a bit and refocus on the non-snacking since it undermines my primary goal.

The primary number: I lost 31 lbs. Down from 254 lbs to 223. This is basically my pre-marriage, pre-child weight back when I was studying Kempo after losing about 80 lbs between 11/2001 - 5/2002.

I'm going to take 5-7 days off from the gym and then get back to work. My goal is to get to 190 lbs and emboldened by my recent success, I think I can do it by my birthday.

I'd put in a count of gym visits but Lift appears to be down, but as a guess I think I went to the gym about 75 out of 90 days. Probably too much, but it pumps me full of energy and I enjoy it.
