I’m having a hard time keeping up with my commitment to posting a Weight Loss Challenge journal entry everyday. How do people who aren’t being paid to maintain a blog do it?
Anyway, thus far, this week has been going great, though I did cheat this morning and weighed myself. It wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t what I was expecting. It showed now real movement. I know I shouldn’t have checked. Half a week really isn’t going to show much for progress, but it’s still a hard pill to swallow and keep oneself motivated to continue on with trying to lose weight.
I’m now working to purge that from my memory. I had a good workout today and thus far I’m on track for my calorie intake. Yesterday was even better for calories. Typically on Wednesdays I don’t get to the gym because I work from home, so I don’t usually get any additional activity calories. That puts me at a straight up 1,600 calories for the day. I managed to finish the day out with 29 calories left. I was so going to find a way of eating those last 29 calories too, possibly a few more because I was quite hungry, but then the 9 month old decided to wake up and thoroughly saturate his crib with puke. Awesome, no eating after that.
I’m confident this week will end on Sunday with a weigh in that is in the loss column, but I just don’t know how much. I’m not going to dwell on that little negative, but I will dwell on the positives I’ve been getting this week with my workouts. Again, todays workout went very well. I focused more on my upper body lifts than I did on the rowing, though that was a pretty intense workout as well.
How often do you weigh yourself and why?
