Weigh in: Week five

4 July 2006

This week was an unusual one. Even with recent flooding, we were knocked off our normal exercise routine due to many people going away for the holiday, parks being closed for festivities, and me injuring my hamstring.

My results for this week are not solely based on the amount of exercise for this week, though. I have found myself not keeping track of each calorie, which is essential to being absolutely sure of what you took in for the day.

I can't tell you how many times, at the end of the day, I find myself trying to figure out what it is that I ate for the day. So, I'm going to make a much more concerted effort to keep track of each calorie, so that my progress remains steady.

This week, I've managed to lose one pound. Again, I firmly believe this has more to do with me being a little lax with my caloric counting. However, I'm of the opinion that one pound is much better than none!

So, my starting weight was 225.6, and I now weigh 213.4. Definitely progress, and definitely headed in the right direction.
