Weigh In - Week 13
Food: Ate well, averaging around 1,700 calories per day, but did work in some birthday treats by backing off the calories on other meals. Weighed daily to keep it in check. Use sparkpeople.com everyday.
Liquids: Same as each week...not a struggle here. Lots of water and also had coffee each day. By the way, I never drink diet soda. I used to, but have been told that it is a gateway drug toward sweets, in that the sweeteners cause your pallete to want more sweets and also that the carbonation artifically expands your stomach, making you "feel" more hungry than you really are. Also, I almost never drink alcohol anymore. If I do (1x per month?), it might be vodka on the rocks. Maybe a margarita as a reward sometime soon!
Monday: Did my first 5K in about 45 minutes (mostly walking)
Tuesday: 30 minutes of stepping
Wednesday: Did a 5K in my hood in exactly 44:39 exactly.
Friday: getting sick
Confessional: NOTHING TO REPORT THIS WEEK! No major indulging, but did have some birthday dessert, etc....I just ate light around it.
Weight Loss Highlight of the Week: My weight over the past 26 years has steadily increased each year. In fact, I still have every suit I have owned since high school. Judging by what fits in my closet, I now weigh what I did in 1998. My closet has become a time machine.
My Goals for this Week:
• Continue to pursue goal of 280 weight by June 20 for Mrs. Clyde's iTouchallenge!
• Cardio at least 5 times this week C25K (3x). Hill Climb (2x).
• Walk/Run in my first 5K race on Saturday with two of my kids.
Make it a good week everyone!
