Current Weight: 206.0 lbs (-1.0 lbs exactly. Perfect!)
I lost the pound I wanted to lose! Woop! I admit the scale kept going back and forth between 205.8 and 206.0 but in the end it landed on 206 so that's what it is. I checked my measurements and definitely saw that I lost a quarter inch on my hips and a slight fraction of an inch lost on my arms. Nice!
Getting to 206 was a bit of a hassle last week since I ended up visiting friends and being introduced to food, food and more food that I did not hold back on eating. Eeek!

Starting with calories for the week.
Things started getting tricky on Thursday when I had a craving for something sweet and I started snacking. It got worse on Friday when I went to visit a friend of mine who is known to eat like a vaccuum cleaner and cook like a master chef. Bad combination when I can't control myself over food. I tried to make up for it on Saturday and ate very little. I wasn't really hungry until 7pm! On Sunday I ate sensibly but I was invited to a party and later to a bar. Alcohol and mixed drinks. That's all I can say. Sigh. At the end of the night I went to bed dreading the scale knowing I'd consumed too much that weekend. So I was pleased this morning with the results.
On to work outs.
Mon: lake swim 25 minutes
Tues: Steep short hike 3.8 miles
Wed: toning work out by trying to fix my car
Thurs: jog/walk 40 minutes
Fri: 2 mile hike
Sat: 45 minutes toning work out
|Healing bad sunburn. :(|
I didn't do too many strenuous work outs but I stayed active. On Wednesday I made a work out out of trying to fix a dent I put in my front bumper. It ended up being a rowing work out after a while of me trying to push the dent back out. That day was also when I got the worst sunburn I've ever gotten. My face not only got red, but irritated. It burned and I got bumps and what looked like acne. It took days for it to calm down. This morning it now looks like a slightly red face with peeling skin. I'm ok with that. Never leaving the house without sunblock and a hat AGAIN.
I'm doing well with losing 1 pound a week. I want to continue that and see if maybe this week I can lose 2 lbs.
I'm going to keep my goal to drink 2 nalgenes/ ~60 oz of water a day.
I'm going to continue counting calories and try harder to stay within 1200-1600 calories.
I'm going to continue trying to work out 5-6 days/week
I only did my toning work out twice last week so I need to keep that up and try for 3x/week.
I need to stay away from the sun as much as possible while my face cures. So most of my work outs will probably be in the evening or inside. If I decide to hike more I'm going to have to take extra precautions.
That's all for now. Have a good week and wear sunscreen!
