But now the pants feel fine.... and I have brought the belt in a notch...even though I freely realize that my pants are indeed fat boy pants that I have to discard in short order.
I basically have only missed one day of getting a good 45 minute burn on Cybex daily.
That happened yesterday when I really felt like crap.... although most of it was undoubtedly rat race work related.
Changes that I have made to date include drinking a 12 oz glass of water as soon as I awake in the morning, and making sure that I down a Mason Jar 12 oz glass at least four times during the work day.
I have also taken conscious note of everything that I put in my mouth, and question if I really need to eat. Granted..... sometimes when the answers are that the couple crackers, or piece of cheese are not necessary .....I eat them anyway. But I think that the process keeps me from eating the volume that I formerly would eat without a thought.
And the vigorous 45 minute sweat sessions on the Cybex have the added effect of curbing my appetite. Plus you feel so good after you're done.
