Weekly Update - 9/24/07 (Monday)

September 24, 2007 · 4 comments

  • Diet starting weight: 295
  • Week starting weight: 281
  • Today’s weight: 282
  • Week weight lost: -1 lbs
  • Total weight lost: 13 lbs

(Note, I am posting my update on Monday because I was out of town all weekend camping and couldn’t do my normal Sunday update.)

I knew this week was going to be a tough one to stay on plan because I was challenged both by a business trip on Monday-Wednesday and a camping trip Friday night through Sunday.  I did great on my business trip but camping was another story and in the end I paid for it with a 1 pound weight gain.

Things I did well this week:

Things I did not so well this week:

  • Friday morning I could have done my strength training because I was at home still but I skipped it because I had been up late the night before.
  • No strength training or cardio from Friday-Sunday (did a ton of rough terrain walking while camping, however) which means that my progress charts for both exercise plans went down for the first time.
  • Ate too much of the wrong things all weekend.  Can you say S’mores?

I’ve got to match my biggest weekly weight loss of 4 pounds to hit my goal for September.  Other than taking a day trip to Chicago today which will prevent me from doing cardio I should have no problem sticking to my plan all week and having a shot at achieving that goal.

Could you imagine what your camping trip weight gain would have been had you not been working on this? Great job. I am like putty when it comes to camping (s’mores and other campfire delicacies)

I always find it harder to eat well when on the road. Lately I’ve settled for Chic-Fil-A grilled chicken sandwich with a side salad (no fries) and a bottled water.

When I got a restaurant I look for a combination of two things: all things grilled and all things fish or chicken. You usually can’t go wrong with that combo.

s’mores…ummm… chocolate was my weekend downfall too, but happily I’ve lost back almost all of what I gained.

Congrats on making only a minimal gain in a very rough week. I know how tough it is to keep on track while traveling!
