Interesting weekly result

I was prepared this morning for bad news on the scale. I didn’t track food on 5 of the 7 days this week, and I missed a trip to the gym. Being home on vacation, I also had a few more snacks than the norm.

After my workout today I stepped on the scale, and announced to my wife that I was up for the week. She reminded me of what I already knew, that I needed to buckle back down and do what I know works.

Then a funny thing happened.

I track my weight on an Excel spreadsheet. When I opened the sheet and plugged in today’s weight, I was actually DOWN for the week.

For some reason I had a different number in my head for last week’s weight.

Today I am 237.4 pounds. That is a 1.0 pound LOSS from last week.

That is ok news. I could have done better had I stuck to my plan. So, this week, my plan is the same as last:

  • Accurately Track my points
  • Minimum 3 hard workouts
  • 8,000 steps a day walking
