Weight Change: Lost 4 pounds this past week!
Today, I'm feeling: Great. Glad that I am in this challenge with Alan from The Pounds Off Playoff.
Highlight of the Week: I may write more about this later, but I chose to ride up this very steep hill, south of my neighborhood that many cyclists stay away from. It just looks so intimidating. I crushed it! Not tough at all for me now. Tackle your fears, my friends.
Food: Floated around 1,700 daily calories of extremely healthy stuff. Egg whites, veggies, fruit, little dairy and turkey or ham for several days, but on others I just tried to eat sensibly. Given my increase in exercise, I hoped it would off-set a slight rise in calories. I guess it worked!
Exercise: I ran 4 miles and rode my bike 44 miles last week. It was unique in that I did something almost every day last week and each workout (even if the mileage was short) was pretty aggressive in terms of cardio.
My Goals for this Week:
• Pursue new goal of 270 weight by December 4th. 55 pound loss by my 45th birthday!
• Short-term goal is to be at 279 by 11/15!
• 40 cycling miles this week and 8 running miles this week.
• Maintain about 1,500 - 1,700 daily calories of healthy food.
