Weekly Update - 7/20/2008

July 20, 2008 · 3 comments

  • Diet starting weight: 295
  • Week starting weight: 277
  • Today’s weight: 275
  • Week weight loss: 2 lbs
  • Total weight lost: 20 lbs

Last Sunday I established three goals for myself this week and I am pleased to say that I accomplished all three. I am particularly happy to have lost the two pounds that I set out for myself as my weight loss chart is now looking like it could be turning in the right direction this week.

Things I did well this week:

  • Completed week three of the one hundred pushups challenge.
  • Ran a total of 8.2 miles, which is the third most for me since I started this journey almost a year ago.
  • Had very good eating days almost every day - I don’t recall binging once.
  • Took the time to visit and comment on a lot of other weight loss blogs.

Things I did not so well this week:

  • Only did strength training one day.
  • While I did run 8.2 miles, that was only 2 sessions - need it to be more regular
  • Not enough water.
  • Did I really need all of those margaritas?

One of the strategies I employed this week that I really believe made a big difference is that I replaced a couple of dinners with a whey protein shake. This had two main benefits - first, that I did not have a high caloric dinner and second, that because the shake filled me up and reminded me that I was on a diet, I found myself able to get to bed without indulging in a late night snack. I’ve just started to experiment with these shakes but so far I like what I am seeing.

My schedule will be a little turned around this week with a travel day but I am going to work extra hard to schedule my workouts around that and to be diligent when it comes to eating away from home.

If I can put the same sort of effort in this coming week as I did the last week it should show on the scale again.

Well done John. One thing I’ve found is that success breeds success so you should find next week easier!

great week! Love the idea of the shake for dinner. Most of us really don’t need the calories in the evening unless we plan on being really active afterwards. I may try that one…..I tend to eat too much at dinner :)

John! I think you are really back on your game. This is awesome, and great timing for me as well. Thanks for the news!

It DOES feel like it!
