Day 61 – 217.7 pounds

Day 61 – 217.7 pounds

D.61-217.7 – I am proudly typing this with sore arms, but also a little dejected by the weight gain.  I knew this would be a tough weekend on me, but as with everything, mistakes and set-backs are there to provide you with a learning experience.  There were some good things and I’ll focus on those to carry me through the day. Yesterday I had my first 1-hour session with my personal trainer and I am definitely feeling it today. I am excited to see what kind of results I’ll be seeing! (Down 14.0 pounds)

Day 60 – 217.5 pounds

Day 60 – 217.5 pounds

D.60-217.5 – I have gained a little, but I’ve been enjoying my foodie staycation.  I do not advocate the indulging in yummy foods for an entire weekend, but given how much I love food I also don’t regret it.  I felt some redemption from this guilt yesterday by running/hiking 10.34 miles to the Hollywood Sign. This coming week, I am committed to diversifying my exercise routines and will focus on upper body: so I should more to report on this as well. 🙂 (Down 14.2 pounds)

Day 58 – 216.9 pounds

D.58-216.9 – It was a leisure day of bad food choices, but I thoroughly enjoyed hanging out with family and spending time with my good friend from Portland.  I wasn’t happy with the jump in weight this morning, but it was not unexpected considering my 2am meal.  The worst part is that I didn’t go running this morning, but I have all weekend to make it up.  Speaking of the weekend, this will be a tough one because of some delicious dinners on the calendar, but I will survive!  (Down 14.8 pounds)

Day 55 – 217.1

Day 55 – 217.1

D.55-217.1 – I’ve now broken through my lower weigh-in of the last couple of months. 217.5 was the lowest I had gone down to before I went on my little rollercoaster the firstseveral weeks of this month.  216 is the lowest I’ve weighed since late middle school, I’m tempted to say.  212 is the lowest I’ve seen on a scale but that was within an hour of running a full marathon where I was famished and parched  so I’ve considered that an outlier. Beyond 216 will be unchartered waters for me on this journey! (Down 14.6 pounds)

Day 53 – 218.6 pounds

Day 53 – 218.6 pounds

D.53-218.6 – Alrighty, so here goes my experiment with this food journal.  It may turn out being just a photo journal, depending on where my crazy schedule takes me.  I’ll start it off with my usual blurb, and after the jump I’ll journal the things I ate and did the day before leading up to this morning’s weigh-in.  So my weight has been holding steady and only inching a little up or down this month. So I’m on a quest to see which choices I make are causing this. (Down 13.1 pounds)
