Oh, the best laid plans. As you may remember my plan this week was to stay the course and repeat my weekly work out from the week before. I figured that as Valentine’s day treats mostly sabotaged them, I could actually see the work out in full this week.
While I did manage to get in all three of my morning workouts, the walks were less successful. I was rained out, snowed out and had to assist with an automotive break down when I tried for indoor calorie burning with the Wii Fit. At the moment all of our appliances, both those used inside the house and without, are behaving. And the Wii Fit balance board has an entirely new set of batteries. So I think next week, since the weather still looks a bit on the uneven side, I am going to plan to use my Wii Fit and then if the skies clear and the walking trail drains, go for a walk. As in my area the weather is always unsettled in February through March I may be expanding my use of the Wii Fit. We’ll see how it works with calorie burning next week as a test.
With everything going on this week, I did not lose the pound I planned to lose. I didn’t even come close. I also had a Holiday lunch out on Monday and when car trouble happened, we ended up having both lunch and dinner out as well. So while most days I did well with my calories, there were some slip ups.
Quite frankly having any loss was a bit of a pleasant surprise this week. I am hoping to get myself back in gear. Life keeps intervening so I’m not planning on anything but attempting to maintain my system of workouts. After all the only way forward is just to keep going. I’m shifting course because of the weather and dreaming of the day that I can once again comfortable go to the gym, but for now, I will try to add more in door calorie burning workouts to my slate so I can still burn calories even when the weather isn’t letting me walk.
Starting weight: 246.0 lbs
Last week’s weight: 218.4 lbs
This week’s weight: 218.2 lbs
Lost this week: 0.2 lbs
Lost thus far: 27.8 lbs
So not a major loss this week, but not a gain. A need for a new indoor work out plan arises and I will post my upcoming plan for the week on Sunday. Until then I am just going to keep moving.
