Extra Baggage

I just walked in the door after a week in Kansas City for some work-related training. My first stop after getting hugs and kisses a-plenty was the bathroom scale. It looks like I brought home some extra baggage, about 10 lbs. worth. Could that be right? I think it actually IS right. I joked around with my classmates this week that I was consuming TWICE the calories I normally consume at home. Well, today's results now show that it wasn't a joke at all. If fact, it was more likely a very conservative estimate.


Back to work!!!

I'm not trying to "one-up-you", but I might be beating you AGAIN. Ever since our lil' weight loss challenge, I've packing em' back on... plus a bunch extra.

After looking through my log, I see I weigh more right now than I did this time last year.

.... all that to say, I feel ya. We gotta git-er-dun, buddy.

PS> Welcome Home!

Hey were probably consuming alot more sodium than usual and some of that weight gain might be water weight.

Give it a few days of being home to see if maybe things settle down a bit more. Do you really think you ate an extra 35,000 calories in one week???

Hope to see you SOON!!!

Traveling is a major culprit in regard to water weight gain and extra calories here and there, due to eating on the go, etc. The extra lbs. will come off easily, though, now that you'll get back into the groove.

I knew you would come and read my race report when you could. :>) Sometimes we all just need a break, even from the blog land we all love so much!

Now, about those ten. It seems my little week and a half off has caused me 5. SIGH. We will get there buddy, we will!

Welcome back Vic! I hear ya on the weight thing. I need to get my arse in gear. I am sure that the weight will come off fairly easily now that you are back home and back to your regular schedule and eating habits. BTW, woohoo about the kayak...keep us posted.

Hi Vic, my first time to post on your blog. You are doing great, don't let the travelling get to you. I have the same struggle with my job as well.
I just finished my first training run at a half marathon distance on Sunday and it was great to know that I can go that far. Stop by my blog sometime. I'm thinking of the Houston Marathon in '08. My brother lives in Houston and ran it this past January 5:23:something. Randy
