Welcome to Friday morning my darlings. My weight is once again on the downswing and i feel fabulous. As soon as I am done with my morning posting I will be heading off to the gym and the first workout of the new system. It feels like the first day of school. I have my check list all ready and a new play list set up to play. It has actually been a while since I put together a new play list. Each of the ones I have right now have been with me for a while. It is certainly time for a shake up. New routine, new playlist and a new focus on my goals. I feel pumped and ready to face the day.
This week i did pretty good in keeping on track. I stayed within my calories and got my walks in consistently. And it showed. I am down a pound from last week so I am happy with what I accomplished this week. It will be interesting to see how things change with the new system in place.
But I am getting ahead of myself. First workout this afternoon. Exercise first, evaluate after. Today I am actually working out with a watch so I can see how long the whole thing (including drive time) is going to take. It might mean a schedule shake up next week, but at least if I time it today I can plan over the weekend.
To the Stats!
Starting Weight: 246.0 lbs
Last week’s weight 218.2 lbs
This week’s weight: 217.2
Change this week: loss of 1.0 lbs
Lost over all thus far: 28.8 lbs
And while I am thrilled at the one pound loss this week I a,m asl thrilled to have a marker on the day I started for evaluation purposes. It is always good to know where you start so you have a reliable benchmark. this is my benchmark day. In six weeks I meet with the trainer again for evaluation of both me and they system. So I’ll compare these to the June 4th numbers to come and end up with a pretty good idea of how things stand. I know it sounds a bit pedantic to restate it like that, but I really like having that set date. I didn’t think i would. I thought I’d be pressured. I think because it is a check in to see how the system suits me rather than any sort of enforced evaluation I feel better about it. I might feel different about it the closer I get to the date, but for now, I like knowing there will be an official comparison and evaluation of the system day. It makes it feel less like drifting.
