I did pretty bad this week because I felt sick.

I lost 1/5 of a pound. By this rate I'll be 183 by the time I'm 33. But when I'm 28, I'll be 230 which is lower than my middle school weight. I know I can drop my calorie range down to like 1200 to 1500 calories a day, and get those great losses, but I know won't keep that up forever. I don't want maintenance to look that different from my lifestyle now with the exception of what I see on the scale. I may do what I did in August where I make 1 or 2 days of the week a lower calorie day so I don't eat close to the maximum each day. I feel it tricks metabolism into working better. Don't let that metabolism get too comfortable :-P

You may be wondering why I didn't address why I'm up so early. I think I've been up early this week more than I've slept in til 1pm. It's a scary symptom of the sickness I think...

This morning I'm going to a small group before church, that way I'll know more than two people at the new church I'm going to right now.

For this upcoming BLC16 week I'm in charge of the QotD's, and I have to give up the scale for a week. I threw away my scale yesterday (but don't worry it was the broken one. So it may be easy not to weigh in because the scale usually stays in the grand parents room.

There's also a macro nutrients challenge, I may need to lower my carbs goal, (it's rather high imo) but I'm also finding that the nutrition trackers sometimes don't count proteins and carbs. (Because people don't enter them).

Also an over training video we need to watch (I hope it's the same as last season because I rewatched it two weeks ago so I'm done :-P) I'm debating on doing cardio 2 days a week, and my strength training 2 days a week, then I could walk if I have that crazy twitchy feeling in my eyes to do something those 2 new off days. However, I also wonder if those off days will make me lazy. I was doing so good until I took a break from my push ups! >:-(

Finally, no more blogs unless I feel like it this week (watch me blog like three times today.) The least I'll do is post a WUB#5 and a few status messages on the feed. Just to give myself a break from blogging... I have like 20 pages of blogs.

    When you lose weight, or change what you do for exercise, are you also updating your nutrition and fitmess trackers? I know if I have an intensive fitness day, I can do almost 150 fitness minutes in one day. It makes my trackers go nuts! It always says to update and that I'm not eating enough for the level of fitness I'm doing. Like, really?
    You are being smart to realize that if you drop your caloric amounts way down, that yes, you'd see a scale drop, but you wouldn't be able to sustain it in the long run. You want to be able to continue to lose anywhere from .5-1.5 pounds a week. That will fluctuate depending on what you eat, the sodium in it, and how much water you drink. You know this.
    Keep on keepin on. Don't give up. On your non-fitness days, even if you do a little bit of non intensive walking, or strength training, you'll still be active!
    Stay away from germs!!
