June 13 Weigh-In, Week 331

It's been a crazy week concerning weight.  I thought I was going to remain static or even have a slight gain.  I have not stopped exercising or eating healthy.  I weigh myself most days, though my official weigh in is Thursday mornings.  Those unofficial weigh-ins were not encouraging.  I mentioned last in my last what I believe that weigh-ins do and do not tell us.  No use in rehashing that.  I know that some advocate weighing yourself only once a week, but as much as it drives me crazy, I am interested in the fluctuations.  I am curious if any pattern emerges over the long haul.

This weigh-in showed a respectable loss of 1.5 lbs. from last week.

My short-term goal is to get under 300 lbs.  Once I get under 300, I will be in the 200's for quite a while. Psychologically, I will find it very encouraging to see a 2 rather than a 3 at the beginning of my weight.  I was hoping to get there by July, but at the rate I am going that will not happen.  Though disappointed, I am okay with that just as long as I continue to live a fit lifestyle and continue to make progress.

Concerning exercise.  Last week we took the week off from running and biked instead.  I think this was a good switch-up.  We are back to running this week.  Strength training has been mostly lifting weights.  I have a set of Power Blocks which are a type of nesting dumbbells.  I love them.  I have been lifting 3x a week.  Next week, I plan to spread the lifting out over 6 days and add a few things. A few years ago when I got my Achilles injury, I had not strength trained in a long time.  I mostly got all my exercise from running with some biking and swimming.  I plan to keep up the strength training along with the cardio.

Living Fit Is My #1 Job!
