Let’s recap where we are on my one-a-week shake and bake session.
Week 1 was drink more water. Didn’t go well – but rallied. Going much better.
Week 2 was work out at least 5 days a week – all is going VERY well with that. Actually setting workout records as we speak. After a busy first 2 weeks of the month, I have rallied to average over 10 miles per day on the month with at least 1 more ride left, probably two. I worked out 5 times one week, six the next. Good deal
Week 3 I was supposed to stop plate grazing and eating peoples left overs. It went “ok”. I wasn’t perfect, I did it by accident sometimes but I did stop a FEW times when I really wanted to – that was good.
That brings us to Week 4. Where the rubber meets the road or something like that… I’m going to start keeping a food journal again. In addition (because it’s so bloody easy to do) I am going to wear my body bug and compare/contrast my intake/burn and see how we are doing. I really should have done this LAST week, but was too big of a wimp and didn’t want to commit to it. I don’t have a smartphone – so all those fancy apps are out. I just have to remember to log my food. I’m looking for a txt 2 diary type solution – but most of them are so weak I am better off just txting myself and uploading it later.
Fully committed to my one-a-week plan. Things are going well, even if I weighed extra this monday. I can pretty much guarantee it was water weight. With some pizza and a quesodillia yesterday – I’ve got plenty of salt up in me. Commuting today will stabilize the system but all in all – I did gain a pound this week. It’s seemingly fairly common for me… ride long (226 miles in 7 days) and gain weight. Then about 2-4 days later – lose weight… more than I gained. I’ll not be alarmed. This is a JOURNEY – not a destination!
