Okay, so how'd it go this week. Well, it wasn't a total failure but it wasn't great. Here's what I weighed in at today:
Last week, I was at 278.6, which means I lost 2.6 pounds this week, or 0.93%.
Not terrible, for sure, having lost that in a week. The reason I saw it wasn't great is that earlier in the week I weighed 274. I lost several pounds, because I was doing really good, but then the weekend came along, and I fell flat on my face basically and gained half of the weight back.
I haven't started in with the exercising yet, which might be part of the reason why I find it so hard not to cheat on my healthy eating plan. I was sick part most of last week, so I was waiting to get all the way to full health before I started wearing down my body with miles of running or tons of weights. I think that exercising might really help me though. For one, after working really hard, you feel a little more invested, and are less likely to undermine the hard work with gluttony. So, I'm going to get on that.
But it's been difficult to get started. My wife went out of town for some training this week, so I've been playing both Mommy and Daddy all week long. That really cuts down on free time for things like running and weight lifting.
I also worried about this weekend, because it's Valentine's Day. Surely My wife and I will go out to dinner and eat at some place that is fattening and unhealthy. And also, chocolate is always involved in Valentine's Day as well. Or at least some kind of candy, right? Will I be able to turn it down?
As Ben Stein always used to say on that "Win Ben Stein's Money" show on Comedy Central from about 10 or 15 years ago, "I shall do my best."
So, Marshal, Jeremy, Tobias, how did you do? What were your percentages?
