My Progress

Sedentary Saturday

As usual, I woke up ridiculously early this morning. I was out of bed by 0430, waiting anxiously for my 0830 meeting. I hopped on the internet and read a few blogs and threads on the WW forums, I rewatched last week's episodes of Biggest Loser and LOST, hopped in the shower and took a sneak peak on the Wii Fit. Then I put on my usual weigh-in clothes (the same ultra-light wicking material I wear for my workouts) and drove to the meeting.

I lost 2.0 today, putting me just 2.4 away from that goal of goals, something I'd be thrilled to say I could have in a week, but with this recent trend, I really don't know. Don't get me wrong, I'll always be thrilled with anything that isn't a gain, but I'm now floating at less than 1.5/week average over the last month and that is half the average I was enjoying between the beginning of November and mid-January. I'm in kind of a weird place with my eating right now. I'm confident that I'm tracking everything, but the scale isn't moving as enthusiastically as I'd expect. I have to wonder how much of an impact the missed workouts, the illness and the school stress could be having. What I do know is I'm not going to stop here. I'm going to redouble my efforts on tracking every bite and getting in the workouts. I think the slacking on posting is either a byproduct or a contribution to the lackluster scale performance of late, so maybe I should get back to where I was in February, missing less than 6 days in the whole month.

After I got back from weigh-in, I made some pancakes, eggs and turkey bacon for our breakfast. It was rather tasty, but between the rich meal and the lack of sleep last night, I was out within an our of finishing it. I took a two hour nap on the couch and now that I'm back up and around, I have no intention of leaving the house. I'm going to chill for another hour or so, then it's Final Four time for the remainder of the day. There was some discussion of grabbing some bbq for dinner. I'm looking forward to some Oklahoma Joe's tonight.

I saw this thing online the other day about visually journaling your food by taking pictures of each meal. I thought it actually sounded kind of like fun, but so far I did it Thursday and uploaded my pictures, took Friday's pictures and didn't do anything with them, and today only did breakfast. I think mainly it's more of a deterrent, though - if you make yourself photograph everything before eating it, then maybe it won't be as worth it!
