I'm 0.4 lbs down this week. I'm pretty happy with that. The weight is coming off slowly (averaging just under a pound a week), but as long as it keeps coming off I'm going to keep doing what I've been doing. I'm actually a bit surprised I lost weight at all. I was just ravenous all week, and while I was eating pretty healthy, I was eating around 2,300 calories a day instead of my usual 2,000. I must have been working harder with all that tennis than I thought.

My exercise was pretty good this week. I only got in one weight training session instead of 2. But, I played 3 days of tennis, one kickball game, and while I only swam one day it was a solid 3 mile swim.

Last week's goals: I achieved 2/3- better luck this week.

  • Lift weights at least twice- Oops! I only went once. We'll try this again this week.
  • Continue logging my daily food intake- I did a good job with this.
  • Swim at least 3 miles- I got this in. I did it in one monster swim, but it worked.

This week's goals:
  • Lift weights at least twice
  • Continue logging my daily food intake
  • Swim at least two times

What are your goals this week?


  1. Good job! Slow and steady wins the race :D

  2. My goal for this week is sadly the same one from about 2 weeks get down to 30 pounds lost. I've not been motivated these last couple weeks. So the final two pounds have been very slow to go. Only one left now.
    I don't have specific exercise goals except to keep going as I have been. A minimum of 1.3 mile walk at lunchtime during the week (making it 2.2 miles if at all possible time wise) and a 1.7 mile walk back to my car after work (2 miles is preferable but again depends on time).
    I do need to get motivated to do a bit more, but I can't even get motivated to up my goals at the moment.
