I know, some of you are filled with a sense of Deja vu. Yes, this is exactly the weight I was last week. I can’t actually be mad at it thought. Yes, I would like progress, but this week was a very rainy one and aside from my strange garbage can chase through the thunderstorm it wasn’t a very active week.
Yesterday was really the only day I got a walk in. The rest of the week I did a couple of work outs with the weights and a bit of yoga, but to be honest it was more from a sense of needing to move than it was an attempt at working out. My body just needed a little bit of motion.
I did watch my calories though. I followed my meal plan, including snacks (While I did test out the Verb Energy Bar this week, the rest of the week’s snacks were Cranberry Jalapeno Beef Sticks from Chomps. I really like the sweet heat actually).
Even though i always want that weight to go down, it is a little bit of a victory in that I managed to hold my own on a week where there was little physical exercise. I’m taking that as ,my positive to the scale stalling. I also think that it is going to be a bit of a push to get my weight lower. This is still the range where it likes to plateau so I am going to be watching and working on it. I’m not worried because I know this week wasn’t great, but I will still monitor it.
For now I am taking the didn’t gain in the rain victory. It may not be happy dance worthy, but it is a good thing nonetheless.
Starting weight: 246.0 lbs
Last Week’s Weight: 215.2 lbs
This week’s weight: 215.2 lbs
Change this week: 0.0 lbs
Lost thus far: 30.8 lbs
So no gains for the week and I stuck to my meal plan. There are certainly worse ways to go into a Friday. In fact, I feel pretty good going into this Friday. Part of it is the weather. I know. It is gorgeous out and the weather just calls me to go out to walk. I think this coming week, my walking workout will be more of a joy and less of a chore. And knowing that is a pretty good feeling too.
