Only 5.2 more to go. Let’s see if I keep this rate up. 0.6 * 13 = 7.8 pounds. I doubt I will keep this rate up. At least I am ahead of the curve now.
I am enjoying working out and running every other day. I seem to be in a better mood, and have more energy. Common sense really. Eat less, Move more. Ah durrrrrr! Oh and the following song makes run at a good pace REALLY easy. Thanks Scooter.
I am one day into the challenge. After a BUNCH of activity yesterday, I am no only 5.8 pounds away from my halfway point. I can smell the steak dinner with glazed carrots.
Yesterday I overloaded on activity. I did like 13,000 steps (some of that actual jogging). I worked out. Today I take it easy. Then hit it hard again on Friday.
In regards to my last post… I was down just under 2 pounds for my weigh in this week. Hurray for me.
Okay, I am not a bright man. I could have gotten up early and did my bike ride in the morning when it was in the 80’s. But no. Let’s start at 2:30 when it’s 100 degrees out. Yeesh. 6 miles, sun, heat, beard, ouch.
I am not a triathlete by any stretch of the imagination, and any hill still kicks my ass, but I am getting fitter. That feels great. It also helps that I am not exercising with an extra 39 pounds of water and fat on my body.
The thought about how easy exercising will be when I lose another 61 pounds is mind blowing. I want be that middle aged guy with the rocking body that looks in his thirties. Or at least not be the unhealthy slob I was a few months ago.
I am heading in the right direction… and that direction is in desperate need of a shower.
So I weighed myself this morning and the scale told me 250 pounds. That is 20 pounds lighter since the morning I started Jenny Craig. I am 20% done (the easiest 20%) and I am only 25 days into this diet.
My trick? Follow the menu that Jenny Craig gives you. Increase your activity. I walk at least 7500 steps a day during the week. And stick to (some times leave out some stuff) the menu.
Eat less, move more. It’s simple but it’s not easy. You have to find a motivator that will stick with you in the long run. Mine? I don’t want to die (high blood pressure, high cholesterol, High Glucose) and I want to look good naked so ladies will have fewer reasons to avoid me.
Just a quick note. Twenty minutes of walk/jog on the treadmill this morning and I already doubled the number of steps I did yesterday.
GROAN! I can’t help but to wonder if my complete lack of activity yesterday has taken down bodymedia’s servers. Well I weighed myself this morning, and I know it’s mostly water weight, but it appears I am about 7 pounds down all ready. Not bad. 93 more to got.
