My Journey to a Healthy Me, Day 337

Here it is, Monday wrap up time!

Overall, I felt like this was one of my best weeks all year. I got in my runs despite the rain. I got in my step goal all week. I even put in over 8,000 steps on my “rest day”. Then, I also did my workouts. One in the complex gym.

All of this, and I hit my goal of 1000 of greater calories deficit.

The one thing I might change this week, is just to have the goal of not having a surplus on rest day. Then I actually can rest. 😉

Weight Loss

January 1st, 2018 to December 3rd, 2018

This week I did it. I broke into the 100 lbs lost category. 102.5 lbs since January 1st. 2.8 lbs this week. 257 lbs is my all time low (that I can recall in adulthood). I hope to be able to hit that before my Nerdfitness challenge is over. (December 23rd) It is weird to be thinking of the new year already, but I hope to enter it at my lowest weight!

Last couple of nights, I had a little trouble getting to sleep. I was in bed on time each night, and I did get in my reading before hand. Most nights this week, I had decent sleep. Hopefully, I will return to that.

    1. Thanks 🙂 I know there was a couple of months in there I could have done better, but overall, I am pretty proud of myself. Just thinking back to the me from last year, it is crazy to think this was just a pipe dream I was having.
      I am already starting to dream up what I want out of next year. The last time I was this low, I did get some things done, but I didn’t go any lower in weight. Spent the year floating 260-280s. This time I want to keep dropping weight. I’m going to make a goal list for next year. Hopefully, in a year, I will have become even healthier 🙂
