Today, I'm feeling: Energized to keep this going!
Here's what happened last week:
I had a bad cold that sacked me from Monday and Tuesday. Feeling better, I washed my truck on Tuesday night (is it wimpy for me to have worked up a good sweat doing this?). As I was getting the car wash stuff down from a shelf in my garage, I fell...no harm done, until I felt the pain in the morning. A trip to Urgent Care showed that I had sprained my foot which was pretty painful for the next few days. Back to normal by Saturday morning, but lost some workout opptys this week.
Food: I ate very well this week, averaging just under 1,700 calories per day, except for "Dark Monday" (see below). My diet involves a lot of fresh fruit and veggies, egg whites, grilled chicken and lunchmeat and even Subway sandwiches (no cheese, low-cal dressings), turkey jerky, soup, and rarely cereal or oatmeal.
Liquids: Tons of water, quite a bit of the Lipton Diet Green Tea with Citrus. This keeps it all moving and energy levels up. Also, helps to curb my appetite.
Exercise: I dragged out the punching bag and hung it again outside. I beat on that thing a few times this week and lifted weights twice. Otherwise, only the Grampa workouts of adding steps to my daily routine.
Weight Loss Highlight of the Week: I am now wearing some clothes that I haven't worn for years. They almost seem baggy. It is hot here in AZ and I am now realizing that my jeans that I wore in February should probably be given away, because I won't be able to wear them once it gets cold again in October!
My Goals for this Week:
- Hitting my "milestone" number...more on that, when I hit that goal.
- Maintain a daily calorie budget of 1,700 or less
- Exercise at least 4 times this week (walking or cycling)
Have a good week everyone!
