So…this week is the week that I’ve been looking forward to for the last few weeks. Things finally calmed down a little for us, and we had a pretty normal week as far as our schedule is concerned.
Unfortunately, my wife had to deal with a migraine for the entire week (actually, it started the Friday before, and it lasted through my weigh in day). That meant that our dinner plans were thrown off for much of last week. We planned to either have healthy meals or juice for dinner. However, with my tight schedule and her migraine, I was “forced” (of course I could have made better choices) to pick up food on the way home a couple of nights. I went to Moe’s a few times, since they are one of the most healthy options around.
Despite that, I was able to have extremely healthy breakfast, lunch, and snacks each day. We were able to do our modified juicing/smoothie meal plan for a couple of days (with a couple of items from our healthy fats diet thrown in), and I made sure to have a smoothie each day for lunch even when we couldn’t juice.
I was also able to get in a number of strong workouts, and I even was able to run for a mile straight. In fact, I made a video…
You can see from that video that running is not my thing! However, I plan to challenge myself with my runs, and not just use it as a way to cool down from the real workout. I’ll probably post more videos like that to my YouTube channel.
Anyway, on to the video and then to the numbers…
And here is a direct link to the video on YouTube, in case you are reading this via email.
I have become a lot more active on YouTube (I’m posting daily videos now), Pinterest, Twitter, Facebook, so be sure to connect with me there. I plan to post a lot of small updates, health tips that I learn, good articles, and other things that don’t warrant a full blog post, onto those sites. Be sure to leave comments so I know you’re there. Yes, I will bug you about it until you comply!
I didn’t know what the scale was going to say, but I was hoping that it would be kind enough to register in the 240’s. Here are the numbers (if you want to see the details for all weeks, just click here)…
Now On To The Weigh In
Week 0 (First Weigh In) – 287
Week 4– 276.4
Week 8 – 266.6
Week 12 – 258.6
Week 16 – 256.0
Week 20 – 258.0
Week 24 – 253.8
Week 28 – 248.0
Week 33 – 250.2
Week 34 – 250.2
Week 35 – 249.4!!!
I was able to get under 250 for the first time since all this craziness happened. It felt good to not see 25X on the scale, but I was hoping for a larger loss.
Considering that we had Moe’s for at least 3 days out of the week, it could have been worse. I am working hard this week and I really want to see my weight move in the right direction!
This keeps my 35-week weight loss total at 37.6 lbs, and 42.6 lbs from my all-time high.
