Weight Change: Lost 2 pounds
Total Loss since 3/1/10: 10 pounds
Today, I'm feeling: Fine, determined to have a better week than last week.
Here's what happened last week:
Food: I did not stick to a strict calorie budget for about 4 days this week. Ate at a relative's house and some restaurants and tried to stay close to my plan, when it was convenient. Then, tried to "eat with moderation" at a resort without counting calories. I rallied and was even lower than my budget for the past two days to get back on track. All in all, for a guy with a food plan, I ate poorly.
Liquids: Did not drink as much water during those four days. I was preoccupied with a home construction project at my in-laws and a quick vacation. I felt differently without all the water, but again rallied the last two days.
Exercise: I was a hard worker this week, doing the construction project for two days, then doing daily exercise (walking, swimming and riding) for the rest of the week. Worked out four days this week (light to moderate level).
Confessional: Poor food choices, when I could have been more disciplined. At the resort, I simply didn't want to count calories. I just knew that I would be decent and get back on plan when I returned, which I did. It's hard to be motivated at a place that has a "Lazy River" pool.
Weight Loss Highlight of the Week: My wife bought me a cool belt in 2005. I realized mid-week that it now needs a new notch! In fact, I am notching down on all belts and feeling more comfortable in all clothes.
My goals for this week:
Move to a daily calorie count of 1700.
Workout 6 times (at least w/ a 30 minute walk). Bike miles would be even better.
Thanks for the encouragement everyone!
