W7 - Summary

Sunday, November 18, 2018

I am not even sure how my body pulled a loss off given how stressed I've been. I've eaten "not so great" this week, and am starting to acknowledge that while this "just track" mentality has paid off thus far, I can't continue that forever without starting to adjust some of my behaviors when it comes to food.

For instance, I probably shouldn't drink two bottles of wine - by myself - during the week. But it was one of those weeks.

My body forgave itself this week, so for that I will go with it.

I did get another two sessions of BollyX in, plus a short walk yesterday. I'm proud of my progress and consistency on that. Again, it begs the question of "more" but it is so easy for me to get into the mindset of "just join a gym" and then never do anything with it... I've been delaying because of that. My pattern has been to get a proverbial itch between September and December, trying to get back on track and then falling off in the new year. The only difference is that this year, I don't have an extra $50/month to waste at the gym if I don't go. I also don't want to get sucked into an 18 month contract just to pay less per month.

Adulting is hard.

I don't know what I will be doing for Thanksgiving. I've typically spent it by myself over the past couple years, which is both hard and easier than dealing with drama.

Confession: I jumped on the scale at 6am this morning and I weighed in at 1.0 pounds heavier than recorded. I went back to sleep for 2 hours, got up and weighed again (with a commitment I'd go with the number) and it came back at a 1.2# loss... so I guess the moral of the story is don't accept your first weigh in on Sunday morning until after you have taken a 2 hour nap.

Excited to be into a new "decade" of weight. Now, onwards and downwards.

W7: -1.2# (total -10.2#)
W6: +0.6# (total - 9.0#)
W5: -3.0# (total -9.6#)
W4: +0.2# (total -6.6#)
W3: -1.4# (total - 6.8#)
W2: -3.6# (total -5.4#)
W1: -1.8# (total -1.8#)

    Congrats on the loss. Even with the wine you must have done something right!!

    Those two sessions of BollyX plus the walk are a great routine for the week. If you think you need to add something, a good strength session would be good.

    Just keep tracking and emoticon .
