(check my photo gallery for a larger version)
My first journal entry, and my second week on SP! Down 3.6 lbs in two weeks, and almost 45 lb less than when I started. How am I doing on my goals?
Weigh every day, not to focus on the number, but to practice mindfulness of the day to day changes of my body:
- Not good!
The diamonds on the graph are actual weights. Only four times the last two weeks. I was on vacation last week, so you might give me a pass for that, but I've taken my scale with me on trips before - that's how helpful it is to me personally. Excited to be better this week and see all the data the practice gives me. If you haven't seen these graphs before they are from a free online app called Trendweight. The red line is a rolling average and becomes very helpful the more weights you give it. More on this in future weeks.
Post a blog once a week:
- Check! I'll give myself a pass for last week. I was in a national park with my wife and friends. I left my computer at home and checked email rarely on purpose. Got some great long hikes in, like 11 miles round-trip up to the tallest point of the park. 285 flights on Fitbit!
Check in with my team once a day:
- Not very good!
I hope to log in once a day briefly, even if it's to throw a like somebody's way. So thankful for the couple of people who have already reached out to make connections. Look forward to reading your posts and encouraging you!
Here's to a great week,
