Weekly Loss: 2.6 lbs
Total Loss: 15.2 lbs
Honestly, I’m losing in the most bizarre places. Not remotely complaining, but it’s weird to lose in my face and legs first. Over all, thrilled with progress since I recommitted and this is the longest (42 days since January 28) that I’ve been focused since I started this journey. I have tracked every morsel I put in my mouth since then and it hasn’t felt like a chore at all. I will finish it this year. I am “All In”, no doubt inspired by this weekend’s reading. Speaking of this weekend …

with today’s workout complete, Q1 of the #GoTheDist challenge is as well
Q1 mileage: January: 114.23 bike / 4.01 walking
February: 62.18 bike / 8.61 walking
March: 62.57 bike / 31.24 walking
Total: 238.98 bike . / 43.86 walking
Although only the ~239 miles counts for #GoTheDist, I’m very impressed with those totals. While it looks like I wasn’t any more active in March than I was in a (sick & traveling) February, it’s more that I walked home a lot more. Not as strenuous as the gym, but good activity and good for the head.

Not shopping for gym clothes or sneakers or anything, for a gym.
I’m coming up on two years at Boom Fitness and while I like it, I don’t love it. So I decided to see what’s out there. Figured it can’t hurt to be a diligent shopper so I hit NYSC & Equinox
Putting it as a pros and cons to help myself decide even though I think I’ve already made my decision.

no, not involving blogging more. I randomly have the best of intentions which then fade fast.
Challenges of the activity variety. Back in February I mentioned a challenge that seemed interesting. Of course, I did nothing with it. Lately, I’ve been watching Fat Girl vs. World’s #GoTheDist challenge and I decided if I didn’t join I wouldn’t do it. So I signed up. I tracked nearly 520 miles this yr. of exercise from April to December. I think I can do 750 next year. Maybe my knee will even strengthen to the point where I can get past the . . . → Keep Going: Challenges
activity miles logged since I began tracking on MapMyFitness in April 2011. That’s pretty impressive. 104.3 of that was in July and I petered off in the fall when work was crazy but got back on track with 61.81 miles in December. I’m hoping to carry that motivation into 2012.
Some additional information about that 519.29 miles:
79.66 total hours
Now I didn’t hit either my mini weight goals in 2011 but those numbers are pretty powerful. Imagine where I’d been if I hadn’t logged that mileage?

because really, I’ve killed a ton of brain cells on that this week, with no reward as of yet I’m so glad it’s football season, I just wish it was year-round. On the plus side, my gym is getting Direct TV which means NFL Network. WooHOO! Just like this summer where I began spending more time at the gym for its AC, it seems as if I’ll be spending time there for their TV. So maybe football does translate to APs.
Like many trying to lose weight, I wear a heart rate monitor to track calories burned/APs while working out. . . . → Keep Going: Can I get APs for stressing over my fantasy football league?
Child of the 80s
This HIDEOUS photo on the shores of the Galilee or the main photo on my blog are almost exactly a year ago during the trip to Israel and Jordan. No idea what my weight was then. This was March 2010 at ~ 209 when I joined WW.
This photo is today. With Saturday’s WI I’m officially 20% down from my start weight and 42.2 lbs down from when I started. Shirt is a present to myself. 80s child all around. I’m so happy with my progress. I don’t see the difference looking at myself day . . . → Keep Going: What a difference a year makes
I’ve been struggling lately with evening munchies. Not out of hunger but boredom, routine, etc. Using points (weekly) because they were there, not because I was hungry. So Saturday I said enough is enough – not using them on munchies. Saturday, I was good. Sunday, not so good. 36.5 points, most of which were on nonsense.
So yesterday I rebounded, resolved. I went to the gym after leaving work late and got home a little after 9 pm. Quick shower, and then smoothie. Almost immediately after smoothie I got the taste for “anything and everyting” and opened the fridge. I . . . → Keep Going: NSV: Evening munchies
actually, 4.5 is not a good AP count for me for a weekend day when I have more time to spend at the gym, but I was so sore from yesterday that I wasn’t even sure what I could do – so this was better than nothing.
I did 60m on the recumbent bike and didn’t feel markedly worse than I normally do when done – tush still numb and legs tingly after. It was slightly less distance – 10.25 miles vs. 10.6 or so but that’s OK. I made sure to stretch really well after.
It’s my abs that . . . → Keep Going: 13 APs is a good start to the week
no, those two are not connected. The scale did not attack me.
First of a gajillion errands today was WI. Really wasn’t sure what to expect as I hadn’t been on the scale since Tuesday night the night after the Jolly Joe’s. I ate much better later in the week, but didn’t know if I had undone the damage since I also hadn’t been to the gym since Tuesday. Saturday 11am meeting also had a very different vibe than Wednesday evening. Still think I’m meeting shopping.
Down 1.4. Happy with that. Means I’m at 171.4 and 37.6 total since March . . . → Keep Going: Good WI and WOW I’m sore
