Week 12 weigh-in

This morning I stepped on the scale and weighed-in at 305.4 which represents a 3.8 pounds loss for the week!! I am very happy with this week indeed. Last week I had blipped up by .6 pounds, but this week things are back on track. Since starting this journey, I am now down 39.6 pounds or 11.5% from my starting weight.

After last week’s hiccup, I refocused myself on journaling and staying within my Weight Watchers Points+, and I made it to the gym 4 times. I also was more diligent about my water intake which definitely helped. The weather has been beautiful, so I have been taking more laps outside my building at work when time permits. The perimeter around the building is .7 miles.

At the gym I increased my intensity. I am still mostly using the treadmill and stationary bike. On the treadmill I have stepped up my speed to 2.9 MPH, and I increased the incline to 2.5%. Last night I really noticed this change as I was sweating far more on the treadmill than I was last week. On the bike I have increased the resistance to 10, up from 9 previously. I spend 30 minutes on each, so every visit to the gym is 1 hour.

All-in-all, this was a very good week!

For the coming week I will be just doing more of the same. I plan to get to the gym a minimum of 3 times, but with the holiday weekend it might be difficult to get in 4 visits. While at the gym I will sustain my current levels. There will be a minor challenge this weekend with it being Memorial Day, but I think I will be fine in terms of points. It just takes a little planning and self-discipline.
