Another week treading water. I am not disappointed at all this week, though. I got in 4 legit workouts, including 2 4+ mile walks, and two all around workouts. The all around work outs involved the weight tower in my building's gym and then a jog or a go on the elliptical. I am still figuring out what I am doing, particularly with the weights, but something is absolutely better than nothing. I can see and feel a difference, too, and so can those around me. I am OK not losing a whole bunch of weight if I am replacing fat with muscle. My hope is that more muscle mass will boost my metabolism and help me break this plateau. We shall see. Here are the numbers:
Current Weight: 283.8 lbs
Starting Weight: 440.2 lbs
Weight Loss This Week: 0.2 lbs
Weight Loss in Year 2: 1.4 lbs
Weight Loss Total: 156.4 lbs
It is also worth mentioning that this is my sesquicentennial post. Unfortunately I will be celebrating by working on my day off. Fun! It should only take an hour or two though, and then I can enjoy the weather here in Chicago. It is still a bit chilly, but buds are forming and the sun is out more frequently, which qualifies as full on spring up here. I got some new running shoes to help motivate me, and they actually make a huge difference.
Next week will mark the quarter pole for year 2. I would really like to smash this plateau to start quarter 2, so please provide your suggestions. So far my plans are at least 4 solid workouts and a lot of salad. Other, more interesting ideas are welcome.
