Wow, week 100 already. Last week I received a comment on my blog post from AHTRAP that asked what I had planned for my 100th week... the thought of this being week 100 hadn't even crossed my mind! But I decided to put as much effort as I could afford into this week, just to try and make it a little special.
I kept my calories in check (although still not eating real clean) and put in 300 fitness minutes. I am happy to report a loss for the week. Let's check the numbers, shall we?
Weight : 213.2
Lost : 2.0
Total : 104
Yep, a 2 lb loss for week 100! Plus, a new record low for me as my last lowest point was 214.4. Overall I'm pretty darn satisfied with how this week turned out. Now I'm going to go enjoy some KFC and spend the rest of the evening relaxing and hanging out with a friend.
May you all have a wonderful rest of the weekend and a great next week :)

This week is now over for me and I'm glad of it. I didn't feel 100% at all this week, I didn't feel sick, but I just felt kind of off kilter. I got 300 minutes of gym time this week but my diet was all over the place! One of these days, I may get this right.
This is going to be a short blog because I'm tired and I don't feel like spending a lot of time typing today. Also I can't think of anything witty, intelligent or insightful to say, so I should just keep quiet! So with that being said, let's look at this weeks numbers:
Weight : 215.2
Lost : .4
Total : 102
So, 4/10 ths of a pound lost this week. If I had weighed in Friday morning I could have recorded a 1.2 lb loss! But as it turned out, this morning didn't deliver the number that I was hoping for and now I'm really angry and want to do bad things. Just kidding :) It's still a loss and that's cool, just not as cool as a bigger loss would be!
Have a great weekend everybody :)

Well another week has come and gone, the last weigh in for me in February. I had a better week, but still not great. But I'll take it. It seems that I'm at the point where losing weight has become difficult but gaining it has become very easy! I guess that's the price you pay for having lost a bunch of weight already.
I made it to the gym 3 times I think this week, I wasn't really counting so maybe it was 4, not sure and I don't care to go look at my fitness tracker to check :) I ate a little better this week, still not as clean as it should have been, but that is something that I will probably have to always work on.
Let's get to the numbers, I'm already getting tired of typing :)
Weight : 215.6
Lost : 1.2
Total : 101.6
So I lost 1.2 lbs, not a bad week for me. But after gaining 2.2 last week I was hoping that I could drop at least that same number this week, but it was not to be. But I'm still glad to be posting a loss. It isn't the loss that I was hoping for, but I'm sure it's the loss that I deserved. Maybe I can do better next week? It is up to me and me alone to make better choices and work a little harder.

Posting a day late, I was fairly busy yesterday and just wasn't in the mood to write this blog post. I decided early on to always be open and honest with my blogs and I didn't feel like sitting down and writing it. So sue me!
I thought I had a pretty good week, made it to the gym a few times, trying to find the middle ground between over doing it and not doing enough. My diet wasn't too terribly bad, staying within range each day, although eating more carbs than I really want to and not getting as much protein as I want. I think I need to work harder on my diet, I feel like I've been getting too lax in that department :(
Anyway, let's look at this weeks numbers:
Weight : 216.8
Gain : 2.2
Total : 100.4
Yep, a gain of 2.2 lbs for the week and I'm not exactly sure why. I don't think my sodium intake the few days before weigh in were too high. Not only did the weight not leave, it invited friends over for a visit.
To be perfectly honest, I was upset over the weigh in and that's why I didn't want to write this blog post yesterday. I wasn't mad, more disappointed and a little confounded. But make no mistake, I'm not going anywhere, I'm going to TRY to eat cleaner and probably up the gym time a little. At least that's the plan :)
And before someone says "Maybe it's muscle!", let me say that I have done no decent strength training lately so I know that it's not muscle weight! However I do need to hit the weights (yes, I know I've said that for a few weeks now) and get back to building or at least keeping what muscle I have.
That's all for now, thanks for reading.

This week was the antithesis to last week. Last week I had 360 fitness minutes, burning over 4,200 calories and I gained 1.2 lbs. This week I didn't go to the gym at all, logged no fitness minutes and no calories burned and I posted a small loss. I have concluded that I must have over worked myself last week while also under feeding myself. I'm going to try to avoid doing that again!
I think next week I will return to the gym, but at a more moderate pace, mixing up my workouts a bit. I definitely need to get some strength training back into the mix (I know I've said that several times already, but I do know that I need to do it!).
The funny thing is that my eating wasn't awesome this week, I was still fairly lazy and just ate what was easy instead of taking the time to make my food and eat clean. I wasn't eating take out or anything like that, but having protein shakes instead of having food, a spoonful of peanut butter in the afternoon, etc.
So, once again, if I ever nail down my eating I'll be more successful, especially if I can couple that with a solid gym plan! But for now, I'm going to rely on what has been working and just try and make a few small changes here and there, just too many other things going on right now to make this the priority and put other things off.
Let's see the numbers for the week:
Weight : 214.6
Lost : 1.0
Total : 102.6
So with no gym time and only decent eating I was able to lose almost all of last weeks gain. Huzzah! Hopefully if I can stay relaxed (my mental mode may have also played a part in the loss this week) and eat a little better while adding in a few workouts next week will be another loss. Keeping my fingers crossed!
