26 weeks till I turn 40

Friday, July 19, 2013

Half a year left, and I just need to lose 17 more lbs! I am down to 216.8 today, and that is 25.2 since I restarted on 5/21. Only down 1.4 this week, but I had a big cheat after my low blood sugar, so happy to lose anything.

I have been doing 30 minute walks early in the day because it has been in the 90's all week, and doing workouts every other day. I am almost done reading Inferno by Dan Brown, and it is a pretty interesting book.

I am hoping to get down to the pool or take a bike ride later, if it drops below 90. We have some cloud cover, so I won't burn, but 94 is way too hot for me. I am cooking up lunch/dinner, and that way I have it cooked when I get home, and I can watch the Tigers game.

Have a great weekend.

    Good work, Russell. 17 lbs in 26 weeks is immensely doable.

Your blog caught my eye because we have quite a bit in common. I have 13 weeks to hit 40 and I am reading Dan Brown's Inferno too.

I hope to lose 24 pounds in these 13 weeks - @ 2 pounds a week that is doable too but my current pace has been about a pound a week. Either way, I am trying to concentrate on the bigger picture - the health benefits, the energy levels etc.

Good luck with this journey.

    Careful cause you can still burn with cloud cover! Those pesky uv rays penetrate right through the clouds. darn things! Congrats on the progress you've made so far and I have faith you'll get where you want to be by goal time! emoticon
