Transformation Tuesday: Travis in Training, Week 5

No weight lost, none gained. (268.8)
This number goes from 267-271 depending on the time of day, level of exercise, etc. They call it water weight. (I sweat like I’ve been running a marathon in a fur coat.)
I have high hopes for this week. No holidays that encourage drinking or eating in excess and nothing keeping me from working out. Got a solid 3 hours of tennis played last Friday and a couple hours of hoop today. Again, the easy part.
Sidebar: I played tennis with my 12-year old son and he is better than ever. His quickness is improving and his exceptional hand-eye coordination has only increased. Long story short, Preston def. Travis 7-6. (I might have let up slightly at the end, but he took full advantage.)
Eating is still the struggle, but it is improving.

I am going to focus on drinking more water this week and up-ing my healthy choices. The goal is to stay in the 260s for three days in a row, water weight and all. I’ve got this.
Less than a month until the Warrior Dash, guess I should run this week. Maybe not. I’ll let you know. I asked the Magic 8 ball and it said ‘Outlook not so good’. Maybe next week.
Happy working out, everyone.
