Starting weight 143.4
Last week 138.4
This week 137.0
Lbs lost this week 1.4
Total lbs lost 6.4
Well I walked or jogged 55 km for that 1.4 pounds, I'll take it, I was really hoping for 2 lbs a week, but a loss is loss and yesterday I was sitting at .8 so I am happier with the extra .6.
I've just thought of something else I can do. If I can pry the brand new kayak I just got for DW for Mothers' Day, I can tool around the lake after work for an hour or so.
Wonder how many calories kayaking leisurely on a calm lake burns in an hour. Not much I presume. But, it's better than nothing.
Well, unless I get crazy, or it gets really windy, I'm not really going to be paddling hard.
But, I have not doubt that my shoulders will hurt tomorrow morning. Even though I *did* go lifting at the gym today.
But, right now, I have to finish mowing the lawn.
So, we'll see how my shoulders feel tomorrow.
Figured I burned around 100, 150 calories.
Honestly, I am fine with 181, that is close enough. I can tell I have lost weight, a lot of my pants fit me better etc etc etc. I am pretty much going to work on maintaining myself at this weight.
Last Week: 171
Total Loss: -34
Goal: 160 (or so)
I guess I should be happy that I lost something, but, I have been at 170 since Tuesday (with one morning dipping down to 169). Don't know what that's all about.
I think snacking is an issue.
I have acquired myself a case of shin splints. Which sucks. So I can't run as much. Or, at all.
The shoulders, after the kayacking yesterday don't hurt at all. A mild pain in the forearms. Maybe it will be worse tomorrow, don't know. I won't be on the lake tonight, it's cold and rainy.
Tomorrow, "principal's breakfast" for my daughter's good grades. Plus a "reception" after a funeral. There is ALWAYS food there. Then, Saturday, another funeral (yeah, it sucks), but, more food. Then, Sunday, Memorial Day party.
Basically I'm pretty much going to try to starve myself all week. Good plan, eh?
Well I might be putting the no exercise thing to the test as the area where my foot meets my toes hurts again this morning, even though I didn't walk or jog yesterday. I am on my feet all day for my job so I think even normal wear and tear is going to bug it, so I am going to stop the extra 5k's for sure, might just do 2.5 to the store if needed, or try to find a deep water aquafit that can fit into my schedule.
Any ideas as to what it is called when there is pain where your foot meets your toes?
End of the school year madness going on right now. Everything is pizza and ice cream. End of soccer party, end of school party, pe teacher retirement, etc. Cookouts and hotdogs and chips and beer. I've been skipping 60% of the bad food offered me, but that's still alot of bad food. And for some reason, we've had an activity or two every evening. Swim lessons, soccer kung fu, reading tutoring...so we get home late and hungry and cranky.
Can't wait for summer to actually start.
Ask your doctor if getting off your ass is right for you.
Gotta keep my head on so I don't ruin this good week.
