My Journey to a Healthy Me, Day 120

Week 17 is in the books. I’ve been busy so far today. I got my day 1 of C25k repeat in. Went off and got my blood work done. Then came home to get some food. I still need to pick up my son from school, and bowl tonight. I may get to making some food, but that might wait until tomorrow.

Week 17 review

Had, and still having a bit of an emotional roller coaster this week. My wife lost her job, so the future is up in the air as to what we are going to do. I think even if she gets a job in this area, we are still going to move this summer. There is the possibility, we leave the bay area. We just have to see how things shake up. Mostly I have been OK, but I have had a few freak out moments.

Weight loss:

Overall this week, it was a stall. I lost 0.8 lbs this week. Still total since January 1st is 51.2 lbs lost. I expected a stall week. I just hope this next week is back on the losing tip.

I did well with my eating window as well. Eating after 11:30 am, and before 6 pm each day. Tracked water. I have had a few days of low blood sugar. Mostly the mornings. So I may need to adjust something for this next week. I am just not sure what. Maybe more calories, maybe less fasting, maybe more carbs, or maybe more fats. I’ll have to experiment a little to see.

I did read each day before heading to bed. I also had a couple of freak out nights before heading to bed. Really only one bad night. The rest were decent.


For the first time in awhile, I can say I had a week of exercise. Mostly. 😉

04/23 – 7,107 steps, 68 active minutes. C25k Week 1 Day 1 done
04/24 – 6,427 steps, 56 active minutes.
04/25 – 6,534 steps, 66 active minutes, C25k Week 1 Day 2 done
04/26 – 3,002 steps, 68 active mintutes.
04/27 – 8,682 steps, 61 active minutes. C25k Week 1 Day 3 done
04/28 – 6,510 steps, 138 active minutes.
04/29 – 1,524 steps, 0 active minutes

Completed Week 1 of C25k. Just wanted to have Sunday as the rest day, but had a moment on Thursday that I just didn’t want to do anything. Still, I am pretty happy overall. Only two days that I did not hit 6,000 steps.

This week

This next week, I am upping the step goal to 7,000. I am repeating Week 1 of C25k. Today I did the first day.

I’m looking to make some new recipes this week.

I’m also thinking it is time to get some things ready to move. We have lots of time, but getting things ready to donate is good.

  1. Sorry to hear about your wife losing her job but I’m sure you will both bounce back and I’m super proud of you for not giving up during this difficult time! Keep your head up.
