So it was my birthday week. I was hoping for a big week, possibly hitting my 50 lb / 10% mark.
But as we all know, hoping doesn't accomplish anything. And I did little more than hope. I didn't plan, and I certainly didn't work any harder. So no change. But on the plus side, no gains, either. And I had a birthday dinner the night before my weigh-in (complete with birthday cupcake), so not gaining anything was a blessing as well.
I need to exercise. This is clear. My food tracking is still a little inconsistent, and exercising more can more than make up for that. Plus, I'll feel better. I went to the gym yesterday, and though I was a little nervous at first, once I got started I was fine. In fact, after 30 minutes on the elliptical, I felt good. This needs to be a regular thing.
I got new running shoes. New shoes always seem to make workouts better. (Look, i know that's stupid, but humor me this week, okay?)
Anyway, the mid-week sneak-peeks at the scale are showing a downward trend, so I'm expecting a decent-to-good number on Saturday. And I'm going to hit the gym at least one or two more times between now and then. So yeah. Good things.
Have a good week, friends.
