Getting Back on Track
Tuesday, January 15, 2008
So, I had a dismal holiday season. Well actually, it was fun, but as far as healthy eating goes, that part wasn't great at all. And forget about my cardio workouts -- those went totally out of the window. In fact, I stopped even wearing my bodybugg about halfway into December! I wasn't logging my food, so what was the use?
Using my home scale as a gauge, I went from 148.25 on October 19, 2007, to about 152 by the beginning of December, then all the way up to almost 160 by January 2nd! Yikes. I knew I needed to get things back under control.
So I signed up for "The Biggest Loser Contest" in my office. On the initial weigh-in day, January 2, I weighed in at 160.4 (I assume it was higher than my home scale because of: a) the difference in scales; b) I was wearing clothes; and c) I had already eaten breakfast, whereas home weigh-ins are first thing after getting up). Today was the second contest weigh-in, and I weighed in at 154.6 down 5.8 pounds from my initial weigh-in two weeks ago. Yay!
I won't change my ticker, though, until my personal "official" weigh-in on my home scale this Friday. I like to keep the source of my "SP weight" consistent.
Now if I can only motivate myself to do more cardio. I only did it twice last week, and I need to ramp it up so that I won't embarrass myself at the Huntington Beach 5K on February 3rd.
