We’ve completed our grocery shopping walk. I was making sure to walk fast. Did 2 miles in 51 minutes. So up to steady 2.35mph that means. Steady trying to improve my average walk speed. That also includes hills and traffic waiting.
I weighed in again after the walk and am now at 282.8lbs. That’s down a little over 53lbs! Still pecking away at the long and short Healthy Wage challenges. I’m still about a pound ahead on the short challenge and 11ish pounds up on the 18 month one.
It’s been 6 months of the health journey. Even with losing some focus for a few weeks and still working on getting exercise back on track I’ve lost 53.2lbs (52.8 after starting Healthy Wage Challenge) in 6 months. That leaves me a few days under a year to lose 67.2lbs.
Let’s go with measurements next.
Well, there you see I haven’t changed much in the last 5 weeks. I’m also only averaging about 1lb a week loss since I was majorly slacking off. I’m back on focus now, though.
Last would be me. Doubtful there is much visual difference but I will post it tomorrow. I did take the pics today but don’t have time to get on the pc and put them with the last months one to show yet.
Sorry I haven’t posted like I should. I am apologizing not just to to you all but to me as well. I use this blog to show where I’m at, how I’m feeling and what I’m doing. I have so many pans on the stove of my life and November has just been rough. The time change, getting dark over an hour before I get off work has messed me up. I’m not used to working this late. I’m going to adjust and have still been walking on my weekends.
I have also been eating more than I should and that hasn’t helped my mood.
A few things have happened lately to improve my mood. We got an adorable green cheek conure to celebrate my newest promotion.
They are yet to be named and are very food motivated so shoukd train well.
Next I did log a little loss as of this morn. So, I am now down 52.2lbs! Whoop whoop!
I forgot to do my monthly check in Monday, so that will be late but done Saturday.
So, I got a decent amount done over my vacation. Not everything, of course, but a good amount.
I didn’t lose much,
That puts me at 285lbs even.
My guy and I have decided to get an African Grey as our next pet. I’ve wanted one since I was a teen and have researched them a ton. Locating one shall be a pain. I have a decent lead on where to start. A new pet was one of my self rewards haha! I don’t recall which one.
I plan to walk over to join the Y in the next week or two.
I purchased jeans to further test the thigh guards. As of 285lbs I’m in a size 22 jeans. They are comfortable, not too snug or baggy.
Anywho, I plan to do a video and make a separate post today.
It’s been like 2 weeks since I did a Monday check in. Sorry bout that guys. I will do my best to make one this Monday.
I walked the 2.4 mile round trip this morn. Maybe doing another walk when my guy gets off. We shall see.
I’m terrible about remembering to turn the light off for the basement plants. I’ll try to get a timer soon so hopefully the plants survive a while more. I got the area all ready for working on the prototypes tomorrow. I also did some mild cleaning and got some gaming in 🙂
Yes I ate 3 donuts haha! But hey 600 calories isn’t terrible when the walk burned over 1000.
I may weigh in again tomorrow and see if I’ve shed the water weight pizza gave me. Saturday should have a loss hopefully.
