118.5!!!! I have finally lost a pound! One and a half, to be exact. I am so excited!!!
And for the record, I am counting from an average starting weight of around 220. I actually gained a couple of pounds above that this past month due to really trying to refocus my eating habits. I am eating more now than I did before – I would sometimes go an entire day without eating anything more than a banana and then eat dinner. Now I am eating breakfast and lunch regularly. It just needed a few weeks for my metabolism to catch up with the extra calories. Also, I’ve decided no more beer until I am under 200. Good thing I’ve got a decent supply of wine here. Ha!
Unfortunately, on Friday I tweaked something in my right ankle while doing mountain climbers. It isn’t bad now, but I will definitely need to keep an eye on it. (That tendon is a repeat offender.) Other than the ankle, I really feel awesome…except I still can’t do a full sit-up. Eesh. I am determined to be able to do them someday!
I am a little nervous about this week. It is my first week back on a “normal” schedule which means I am back on the road. It has been relatively easy working exercise and good eating habits into an at-home schedule. It’s a lot different trying to work them into living out of a hotel and a suitcase. We’ll see how it goes. At least I am making a conscious effort to build lunch breaks into my days.
