I am back to weekly weigh-ins. Today marked 140 weeks since I started this journey. It has been 19 weeks since my last, official weigh in on June 10th. Although I didn’t weigh-in last Friday, for the purposes of comparison, I am taking the weight I had on Monday as my reference point.
Today I weigh 238.4. That is down 4.0 pounds this week. As I said in the headline, I have the arrow pointing in the right direction again, and that is encouraging.
This will sound like an excuse, and so be it, but today I opted to catch up on sleep. My wife and I went to bed at 9:00pm. I had the alarm set for a 4:00am workout, but elected to sleep until 5:15, giving me a full 8 hours. This morning I feel refreshed! It was always my intention to restart workouts in the coming week, so missing today isn’t really off-plan.
For the week ahead my plan is to:
- Continue accurately tracking my food every day and staying within my points.
- Working out at least 3 times for at least 42 minutes each time
- Daily steps over 8,000
How was your week? What challenges are you setting for yourself in the coming week?
