On Friday, January 22, I weighed in at 219.0 pounds. That represented a 1.6 pound gain from the week before. Several factors contributed to the gain, any of which I could use as an excuse, but the bottom line is I didn’t track my eating, I snacked more than I should have, and I ate some high-sodium foods.
This past weekend I celebrated my birthday with my family. I made the conscious choice not to track my food for the weekend. This morning I am back on track, with no excuses, and with no mulligans.
Last week I announced that I have challenged myself to walk 1,000 miles in 2016. Due to being ill the first week or two of the year, I let myself get behind the pace necessary. I have time to make it up, so there isn’t a huge concern.
The first few days of walking at my previous pace (3.8 MPH), made me really sore. I regretted not walking since Thanksgiving. Now that I am a bit more than a week back into the routine, that soreness has gone down dramatically. I am still behind the pace, but I am committed to catching up and surpassing the goal. Here is my chart of miles since Friday the 15th:
The spreadsheet for the chart above keeps track of other things as well. It tells me that right now I am 46 miles behind the target of averaging 2.73 miles per day.
That is it for today, just a belated update. Hope you all are doing well!
