Feeling better

The first month or so of working out in the gym has come and gone and… wow… I do wish I had started this sooner.

I feel so much better and have actually lost 14 pounds… that is, until last night, where I put away 2 breadsticks, 2 servings of salad and a Tour of Italy. 1,500 or so calories later and I’m feelin’ the guilt.

I wanted to recommend some software out there (Mac or Windows) for people who are also going thru this struggle. I’m falling in love with the software from CalorieKing as a tool for tracking/managing my guilt… er… food intake and exercise program. I haven’t bought it yet, simply because I’ve not had time – but they offer a 7 day trial that is worth checking into. If you’re struggling with weight and trying to get your shit together too, I recommend this over a Numbers spreadsheet 😉

I’m heading to Denver for a week at a work conference. We’re putting on the conference – the engineering gang has to give six (!) presentations this time around. We got off easy last year, comparitively speaking. At least our presentations are entertaining. If you work with us and don’t plan on attending our sessions, you should rethink it 😉
