Weekly Weigh-In

This will be a short post but I wanted to note that I lost 1 pound this week.  My friend Tig, went insane and joined some local "Boot Camp" and starting eating baked fish and fresh veggies and lost 5.8 pounds last week.   We are on one of those "let's-challenge-each-other-but-really-encourage-each-other", but I swear I hope that he goes to the Pizza Hut buffet a few times this week.

I can't compete with baked fish and boot camp.

But I am motivated nonetheless to continue in my very reasonable plan of better eating, more moving and steady progress.

Because I have been breaking bad on my food choices a bit lately, I am doing another 3-day juice fast, beginning this morning.  I like them for a few reasons:
1.  I think it psychologically gets me back on track.
2.  I would guess it chemically breaks off any recent sugar-addiction build-up, or at least weakens the sugar-cravings.
3.  It is useful for all of us to have some hurdles that we have to jump over.   Small personal challenges make life a bit more interesting and can give our confidence a boost, especially in areas of our lives that have been challenging for us in the past.

I'll post again throughout the juice fast on the recipes, some do's-and-don'ts and the results.

Have a good week everyone!

Weekly Weigh-In

Another solid week of good choices, but only one exercise session...a short 2.7 mile jog, which went better than I expected.

Loss of 3 pounds.  Very happy with that.   I continue to drink my homemade veggie juice for at least one meal per dayand one snack.  Otherwise, I just am trying to eat smaller portions and avoid unnecessary carbs like bread. 

For example, we went to an italian restaurant last week.  I split some pasta and a small pizza with my son.  Carbs + carbs.  But, of course, they served a small loaf of bread before we received "our meal".  I avoided that bread appetizer.  This was a small thing, but this journey is made up of the little steps, right?

I'm nearly one week into this month, with a goal of 100 miles (by foot or bike) by the end of the month.   Better get in gear, Clyde.

Have a good week everyone!
