Okay, so the "keep the weight off through the holidays" phase is over. I did pretty good. Drifted up a little from 266 to around 270 (+-2 lbs water/food volume fluctuation). Now it's time to kick things back into gear. I'm starting today with increasing my water intake and re-starting my food log. I'm not going to be on full-blown Atkins, like I was during my round 1 weight loss. This time, I'll be following Tim Ferriss' Slow Carb diet, which is a little different, but close to the same thing. I'll also be lifting three or four times a week, with some kettlebell work to increase core strength.
On a work front, I'm going to be working on my technical skills and getting re-certified. I'm committing to 1 hour per day of reading until I get my certs back in order.
Wish me luck.
