As I hinted to in my abbreviated entry from last week, things didn't go so well. Although I have some questions about whether or not the previous measurements were accurate (giving me a more optimistic weight than I expected), the fact is I didn't do so hot Super Bowl weekend. This, coupled with the continued cold weather keeping me trapped inside most days, has not helped.

The problem still goes back to dinner and weekends. I don't care how easy it is to fix something healthy for dinner, it just is even easier to select something that isn't. The only thing I can do is just try to do better with it.

Weekends will hopefully get better as it gets warmer, and I can spend more time hiking. Outside of holidays, vacations, and special weekends like the Super Bowl, I don't do so bad on weekends that a little more exercise can't cure.

Today it actually got above 40, so perhaps there will be a reprieve, and I'll be able to get out more. Eventually, the snow may finally all melt off, and it will be warm enough for me to walk to work. At that point, things should be able to pick up.

Of course, the way this winter is going, that may be about the middle of June.
