59 Days So Far


I think that I am pretty much on track.


My total weight loss in 2 months is 16 pounds. That is roughly 2 pounds a week. That is acceptable weight loss and it is healty as well.


I am a bit off of my goal of 2.5 pounds a week but I know why that is. I ran the Mardi Gras half marathon and that really cut into my training. I wasn't able to do the Tabata workout for about 3 weeks. I think this had a significant impact on my weight loss. I am starting my regular routine out today and hopefully the weight will start dropping off fast.


One good thing about my new job is that I am able to "lock" my diet in. What I mean is that I am on a regular schedule now so I can plan my meals in advance. I can eat at a set time each day and this will help me greatly.


I haven't posted a whole lot about my diet because I haven't been as strict. Monday through Friday I am pretty good but I have a tendancy to fall off on the weekends.


As far as the Half Marathon goes, it was a great experience. I hurt for about 2 days and then the pain went away (mostly). The reason that I hurt was inexperience. I made mistakes on that one that I will not make again i.e. clothing, shoes and so on.


Watching my wife train for and run her marathon taught me that it is real important for adults to have a physical goal to work for. In school we are physically fit because we compete. When we are adults we get out of shape becuse there isn't anything to win any more. It's one thing to work out but if you are training for something you tend to push yourself harder. With this in mind I am pondering a new goal. I haven't decided if I am going to do it or not but when I do I will update you.


Total weight loss so far:

16 pounds.

I weigh 246 pounds even.

I have lost .27 pounds a day. This is not taking into account any muscle weight I might have gained.


Meals

My diet has been all over the place, I will update in 3 days what my meals have been.


Exercise.

None this week I was recovering from the run.
