I know it isn’t much of a weight loss. To be honest I’m not surprised. This week I did start to go back to the gym. Which you would think would make the weight loss more. The issue is of timing. I forgot to schedule in the drive time and changing time and all the other little bits. There was even a first time back since the pandemic outbreak reorientation I had to go through. I’m not complaining. The lecture actually made me feel better about going back to the gym. It just ate up more time than I expected.
And there were fewer walks this week as well. All in all I think I ended up with about a third less exercise than I usually get this week. Hopefully next week will get better. I’m hoping to adjust things so that I can get my weights in at the gym and still burn calories on the walks. I think the schedule will be a bit fluid as I try to work out the details. But hopefully I will get there. I think I’ve figure out my timing now and am prepared.
Admittedly because of all of the tree pollen in the air here I have about a pound of snot in my head at this point so working out hard may be dependent on the pollen count. At least the gym is indoors. That is a good thing. It also means I may use the treadmill there rather than the walking trail. Next week. I’ll have to play that one by ear.
Starting weight: 246.0 lbs
Last week’s Weight: 217.6 lbs
This week’s weight: 217.4 lbs
This week’s loss: 0.2 lbs
Total lost thus far: 28.6 lbs
So little by little chipping away, with of course the daily life’s ups and downs.
As I am trying to keep track of the wear in these sneakers as well, I have posted the original photo and this week’s update. Thus far the shoes are holding up. They have reached the stage where my feet no longer think of them as new, but now feel they are comfortable. Hopefully the feeling will last a long time. Working out is miserable when your shoes don’t feel right.
I find the side by side comparison very strange. In real life the bottoms of the shoes are still blue. They have darkened from the bright blue but they are still actually more blue than they appear in this picture. I see more wear on my toes than anything else, which doesn’t surprise me as I have always balanced my weight more on my toes than anything else. not sure why, but it has always been the way I walk.Admittedly there is some wear starting to show on the rest of the shoes as well. This is after three full weeks of wear on them.
