Weighed myself today. Lost a lb from last week. Was just hoping to not gain this week, so I'm happy.
The weight training is going well. It feels good to go heavier (well, maybe not the muscle soreness that comes the next day, lol). I did an hour of cardio a day for the past three days. A little off my original plan, but I'm good with it. I'm thinking that it's not wise to do too much cardio when trying to build muscle.
My diet still needs improvement. Monday was 2,700 calories, Tuesday was 2,400, and yesterday was 2,700. Not the 2,000 a day I planned for. The good news is that I'm getting in some decent protein (100 grams on Monday, 120 on Tuesday, and 105 yesterday).
When I break my nasty candy bar habit, the calories will be in check. But I'm not going to waste time feeling bad about what I eat right now. Feeling guilty never helped me in the past. I really want to break free of the restrict-and-binge cycle that has taken over my life for the past 20-some years. It feels like I'm finally on the right path. (I hope my feeling becomes truth, lol.)
