The weekend has come and gone and I made it through another weigh in day. If you’ve been following my blog for the last 90+ days you know last week wasn’t a great week for motivation for me. I was feeling pretty sluggish last week and my weigh in this weekend showed it. I didn’t eat particularly poorly and I worked out the same number of times during the week as in weeks past, but I just didn’t have my heart into it and the numbers reflect this.
Weight Loss this week: 0.6 lbs
Total Weight Loss: 32.0 lbs
Nothing impressive about that, though I am not that disappointed. In the end, I may not have been all that motivated to workout hard, but the real positive I can take from last week is even with the lack luster week I had, I still managed consume right around my goal calories every day of the week. In my opinion, that’s the big win I can take from last week. If I keep up the eating practices I’ve been employing and simply get my workouts back up to a more acceptable intensity level, that .6 lbs will jump up to 1.5 or 2 lbs for this week.
Today I feel much more motivated to get a good workout in. That’s even with just 3 1/2 hours of sleep (9 mo was sleep averse last night). I plan on eating a meager lunch which will go great with my meager breakfast, then head to the gym to do an intense rowing session with what I anticipate will also be a fairly intense arm workout. That’ll make for a great start to the week. I also plan to dig out my dumbbells I have at home and do some home workouts in the evenings.
*NOTE: My breakfast and lunch are more meager than usual because it’s my wife’s birthday today and I hope to take her out to eat. I need to save some calories so I can get something fun and devilish to eat.
As noted, it’s my wife’s birthday today and I just had to share the horribly wonderful birthday cake my daughters and I made for her. Yes, we ate it yesterday instead of today. Sunday’s are hockey days for me so I have a much higher calorie intake allowance since I burn close to 1,000 calories in that 1 1/2 hours. Here’s a glimpse at our not so awesome looking cake.
For those of you home workout fiends. Can you share any good youtube videos of great workouts I can do with dumbbells that are low impact on the feet?
Have a great week everyone. Stay motivated and stay successful.
