My Journey to a Healthy Me, Day 22

Week 3 Wrap up

I was going to write up a summary for yesterday, but it will be included in my Week 3 wrap up.

I have to say, this week has me feeling great. Not only do I feel like I am in a good place with my food intake, but I feel amazing emotionally. There is a lot going on with me right now. Preparation for future bowling trips, etc. It just seems like life is all flowing in the right way for me.

My blood sugar levels have seemed pretty normal since dropping all my diabetes medications. I looked at my test results, and they looked fine to me. Just waiting to see if my doctor says anything. Otherwise, I am going to stay off that medication!

Weight loss wise, I am losing weight again. Last week was a stall week for sure. I thought I was only down one or two pounds when I weighed myself this morning. Then I looked over the numbers, and saw that I am 5 pounds lighter this week. That is a total of 19 pounds since January 1st.

367.6 lbs on January 1st
348.6 lbs on January 22nd

Weight loss hasn’t been something I want to focus on. It is the side effect from eating properly, and getting in exercise. I am very happy to see things moving how I want.

Food:

1/15 –  1426 Calories, 16 net carbs
1/16 –  1438 Calories, 12 net carbs
1/17 –  1781 Calories, 12 net carbs
1/18 –  1401 Calories, 9 net carbs
1/19 –  1458 Calories, 9 net carbs
1/20 –  1288 Calories, 12 net carbs
1/21 –  1301 Calories, 13 net carbs

This week, I didn’t have any real cravings for food. Temptation was all around with pizza and fried foods at bowling. I even had Cinnamon candy Oreo’s to deal with at home. Nothing tempted me to stay from my eating. Yes, I would have enjoyed all those things a month ago, but the me now doesn’t want it. Maybe someday, but first I need to get myself to my goal area.

Exercise:

Pretty close to my first week. Beat week 2 for sure.

1/15 – None
1/16 – 1.3 Miles, 22 minutes
1/17 – None
1/18 – None
1/19 – 2.6 Miles, 47 minutes
1/20 – None
1/21 – 2.3 Miles, 41 minutes

I think this coming week, I need to increase my walking days to 5. I need to push. Plus last night, I started to get that urge to try running again. I still think I might be too heavy for that. If I keep this up though, it won’t be long.

Sleep:

Sleep has mostly been fine. Quite a few morning I woke up sore, but hopefully a new bed can fix that. I feel like my routine is working well. Computer off at 11:30 pm, then reading till 12:30 am. Some days I flex a little with this, but it is the general idea of what I am doing.

I have made it through Leviathan Wakes, the first book in the Expanse series. So tonight, I am on to book 2.

Pushing harder to week 4

Onward we go into week 4. Push harder, keep working.
