Okay, I am determined to get this post out on time this week. So, I'm going to plunge ahead, damn the consequences...okay, that's not true. But I will find the time. Here it goes.
Let's see...last week, I was in a bit of a flux. I was trying to implement my new eating program, and failing miserably at it. But I was also starting to kick my exercising up to full blast. On Friday of last week, I weighed this:
And that was me sort of holding steady, despite eating badly and too much. From Friday through Tuesday this trend continued. I had made the resolution to get back to it with fervor by Monday, but we hadn't done any grocery shopping, so when Monday came, I had nothing to eat. Instead, I wound up eating fast food and other unhealthy choices.
My wife shopped, and at last I was able to put together some healthy meals. But I didn't get started on that until Wednesday. So, my weight for this week reflects only a small amount of what I hope will be in store with me from here on out.
I ran five days last week out of seven, fulfilling my exercise goals. As I've said before on this blog, I've gotta get going on training for the marathon, or else I won't be ready by the time it arrives. I started making a marathon training video, like the videos that I did for my quest to 500 miles, and that inspired me to keep at it. When I can add new shots to the movie each day, that's fun and interesting, and keeps me motivated. For anyone who is having trouble with motivation, I'd recommend that. Everyone loves inspiring videos of people losing weight and achieving goals.
In fact, here's a preview of my movie. It's the first bit that I've worked on. Only about thirty seconds, and the movie may change considerably before I'm done, but check it out and tell me what you think.
So, now on to the point. My weigh-in. So, with a week of good exercise, and two days of good eating, here's what I weighed this morning:
So, that's down 2.2 lbs. It is encouraging, since I only ate like I was supposed to for two days this week. If I can assemble seven days, what might I have to look forward to then? Hmmm...
Okay, so how is everyone else doing? Most everyone seemed to be stalled like I was. Tena? Did you break the 140 barrier? Marshal? Are you back on track? Going back down where you should be? What are you doing for your weight loss program? Anyone else still out there and trying?
