I Fucked Up

This is a post I considered not making. I considered hiding from the truth and from the shame I felt because of it. Because I fucked up. But then I realised I needed to be accountable for my actions. There's no point in hiding from the truth. There never is.

Christ to listen to me you'd think I was about to confess to murder. I'm not by the way. Nothing that serious at all. I just got weighed on Tuesday and messed up and didn't lose much more than a pound in five weeks. Which is atrocious.
One truly is the loneliest number. 
I can blame my birthday feast from last month. Honestly that played a major part. But even after my birthday I continued to screw up and eat things I shouldn't. Exercise can only get you so far and bad eating habits can ruin any amount of exercise. To that end I am making some eating changes over the course of the next few weeks.

There are some foods that, after I run out of my current supply of, I will no longer be buying again. Chief among which is the humble packet of crisps. I used to eat two packs a day. Then it was one. Soon it will be zero. I'm going to make some other smaller changes that should see me shaving off between one hundred and two hundred calories a day. It might not sound like much but it will be in the long run. The minimum recommended caloric intake for men is 1200 a day. I will hit that. No more than 1300.

Something has to change. The next time I get weighed I want that something to be my fucking weight.

Happier tidings are coming on Monday at least.


  1. Well it's a net positive outcome, even though it isn't much. You at least haven't sunk so far as to regain lost weight.
    Still, as you said yourself, time to step up your game. Let the disappointment of this result motivate you to never see it again!

  2. Don't give up Mark, stay the course!

  3. Ahh, well at least you didn't gain. You are still going in the right direction!

  4. It really COULD have been worse.
    Could've been that murder thing.

  5. ^I second Jimmy.

    You've got the right idea not keeping certain things in the house. Out of sight, out of mind.
