Weight:
Current weight is 175.0 kg that is 385.8 lbs
Week weight GAIN is 0.1 kg that is 0.2 lbs
Well, this is my first "gain" week since I'm able to weigh in that's about 3 month.
That was pretty much inevitable, since last weeks 11 lbs lost.
And I know I know, many can through rotten eggs at me for calling it a gain, thus quotes:)
I don't even think of this as bump on the road, last week was just a pot-hole so I'm back on track.
Here's a little, you might call it a trick, to teach your brain what really matters.
Let's say you calculated you caloric daily limits, you know your BMR and track your food.
You don't??? I think your should!!! You don't think so???
!!!Then you're the one who needs to do it the most!!! So, just do it!!!
Ok, since you know your weekly deficit you can make an estimate on how much you should be loosing every week, reduce this value by 25-50%. This will be your "on track" amount.
Every week you weight in and loose more then "on track" you deposit that surplus to a buffer.
Every week you loose less then "on track" or even gain you just withdraw from your buffer.

Food:
Had less time during week to prepare meals so ate all of mine 7 soup servings by Thursday, so couple of times I opened my fridge and saw Soup Nazi yelling "No soup for you!!!".
Anyways today is Sunday and it's time to make some more for the rest of the week.

Exercise:
Was able to have a long walk on Wednesday, my blisters are healed for the most part.
My applicable weather bar dropped a little lower, -6 C or 21 F is fine for a long walk.
Jeans, hat, scarf and good shoes(not that stupid once gave me blisters) and I'm good to go!
I do strength staining at home so my program revolves around not changing weight and on Friday I've added 5 lbs to my dumbbells, so now it's about 50 lbs each.

And I had pretty grate achievement this month - 2500 fitness minutes!!! Whoot whoot!!!
It's the first time I'm able to do so, will be hard to do it again during cold Russian winter...brrrrr

Thank you everyone who takes interest in my humble persona, have a great Sunday!!!
Are you making any soup today:)?

    emoticon emoticon I program my calorie counter to the number of calories my goal weight would take and then changed my grams needed for carbs, protein & fat so I can lose my belly fat.

I take measurements every week and also do the monthly measurements so if I haven't moved the scale too much maybe I lost inches instead!

    an easy way to start losing is to cut 500 calories per day from your food diary & up your water. Get moving. Go walk the neighborhood after dinner for an hour. Take the wife with u.

I like the way you figure the weight gain/loss, that is a system I may have to adapt for myself.

    Big pot of turkey soup in my fridge. Unfortunately the only way I can get my husband to eat it with me is to add dumplings. So tonight I divide and hopefully conquer both our needs emoticon Don't beat up on yourself, you will do better this week... just move on!
