I’m back after an extended time away from the microphone due to family and business travel. It looks like I’m in worse shape than before, but things are not always what they seem.
My last show was on August 4th, exactly 21 days from the recording of this episode. In that time, I went to Idaho Falls for a vacation and family event (a wedding) and to New York City for Affiliate Summit East 2011. Now, I know that in my last episode I reported a weight of 232 pounds. And yes, I see that I typed 237 up there in the title, making it look like I gained five pounds in three weeks – and technically, that’s true. In this episode I go over all the ways I failed to keep from creeping up a little and all the ways I succeeded (big time) in making sure that it wasn’t any worse than that. I cover the trip to Affiliate Summit in detail.
The best thing about this episode isn’t even in the recording, though. The best thing is that (due to time constraints) I’m posting this episode on Saturday night, August 27th, two days after it was recorded. In that time, I’ve already worked off about two pounds. That’s just a lot of junk weight from New York City coming off, but it illustrates the point that eating on the road doesn’t have to be the end of the line for diet/fitness/lifestyle change efforts. I’ve been back on the bike for the past three days since returning home, and have eaten dramatically better, and it’s already paying off.

Thanks for listening!
