Ok First post, its 4 days late but its been hectic. My weigh in for the week on Sunday 14th at 8am was 245lbs. That's a loss of 1.5lbs for the week. I am hoping I can continue the downward trend I have started again. Exercise has been suffering a bit though and it looks like I wont be able to till at least Monday. Either way I am hitting the Gym next week and my goal is every night. It may not happen but shoot for 5 and get 3 or above I'm happy. Emails will be sent to arrange with Reggie and my PT (hey Reggie heads up *LOL* hope you are ready).
So I worked harder at not eating bad last week, especially as I could not work out due to other commitments. I felt that I did better and it reflected it when I weighed in on sunday morning. I am at one of those points where the needle was perfectly in the middle so weigh in for Sunday at 8am was 246.5lbs.
I think the change has been made for me to be finally on track again. My mind is more focused and my body is not rebelling as much. I visited a personal trainer for a free session at my gym and I have a plan of action that meshed with Reggie's will give us a good work out plan for a week (alternating our plans as PT suggested). Along with this I want to make sure I keep going to Mandy (my primary PT) and actually show improvement instead of the static I have been. It seems to have been the way of things that when I'm with the PT nothing happens, and then when they have issues and we cant meet my brain gets focused *sigh*. I have an appt tonight which is stopping me from going to gym but for the rest of the week my goal is to get to the gym every night after work. Even if its only for 30 minutes it is still an improvement on what I have been doing.
In other news Jen and I have been discussing a vacation in May. Our idea (well Jens idea since she rode on a section) is to ride our mountain bikes on the Katy Train in Missouri. Take a week and attempt to ride the full trail and then back to Neil and Loris. I have to admit I am excited about the prospect. A week of riding and camping out sounds fantastic and I cannot wait. I have looked at some sites and it looks to be a fun trail. Plans are afoot to get our bikes tweaked / checked and modded (add panniers) to be ready for May. I also love the fact that we are being organised about having a vacation instead of ending up not doing anything and just hanging out around Clarksville.
Its been hectic this week, in work and out. I have been dealing with rearranging the house and so far its in a not bad shape. I would say oh about 60 percent complete and I'm hoping to work on it more this weekend if I can. In amongst it all two things have happened. One I have eaten pretty healthy all week (yay me) and I have cheated and weighed myself a couple of times to see what was happening, If i can avoid badness this weekend I will be hopefully reporting a loss. The down side to the business..... I have not been able to work out all week!!!!
Tasks for next week are to get the house into excellent condition, get back to my normal workout routine and continue eating healthily. I think if I can keep it up I will be able to restart my journey for real (instead of hovering around 250 like I have for the last few months). The differences I have noticed are that I am making smart decisions. Instead of eating at Wendy's last week I went and bought a chicken which fed me for 3 days *LOL*. While meeting Larry and Barb for lunch today I could have been sooo bad as we were at Teds Montana Grill and they do excellent food. My order was Teds bowl of chili and their wedge salad with blue cheese dressing. I had 2 onion rings and 3 or 4 chili fries courtesy of Larry (damn him for knowing my weaknesses) but all in all I kept calories down to about 700-800 cals for the lunch (150 were the 2 onion rings *sigh*) This to me is not bad considering the chili cheese fries alone for an order were 1200 calories, as with the onion rings. Old me could have got them then a burger probably eaten the lot and have consumed over 4-5000 calories....as I have said previously I think I have changed for the better forever (eat less 99% of the time) and the old me is gone. I plan to NEVER go back to ~320-330lbs.
Oh Yeah I have a pic on my fridge of me at my fattest I think. My goal is to scan it and a current photo and you can tell me what you think.
So its been a little bit since I last posted..... STILL at 250lbs I actually did well last week then the weekend hit and it was hectic. lots of bad choices and it took me up to the same weight.
Exercise has suffered since Friday also. I am in the process of rearranging the whole house (think moving 3-4 rooms around and getting rid of a LOT of crap) and it has cut into my time for other stuff. College is being done at work during lunch time *groan* so I have zero free time at the moment.
Just waiting and hoping for spring to hit, cause the trainer is all well and good but I need to get out and ride. Its just to easy to stop get off the trainer and go do something else. Or in the current situation not have room to do anything.
Now you know where I am, I will talk to you soonly with a better weight update.
