It’s time for Weightloss Wednesday! It’s been a pretty good week as I’m at 219 lbs as of this morning. After losing almost 10 lbs in January, it appears I’m at a small plateau/maintenance phase which is totally fine. I think I’ve finally gotten the hang of not totally freaking out when I go 2 weeks at the same weight. Being at 219 means I have lost 181 lbs total and about 11 lbs so far this year and it also means I have just a smidge over 19 lbs to go before that scale starts with a 1. I am so looking forward to that!
On the exercise front, I decided I needed to get back to doing something to grow muscle. I really liked the way I looked when I was able to go to the gym 3 times a week but now that I’ve had to take a night job it is almost impossible to find the time to be able to do that. I decided to download 2 apps that set up goals for 100 pushups and 200 squats so I can at least have some kind of structure and goals to what I’m doing. I also need to get back to where I am stretching everyday because I can feel my hips begin to tighten up again and I remember how susceptible I was to injury the last time I felt like that.
As far as diet goes, I’m finding it very easy to fall into a rhythm of Intermittent Fasting because I don’t like to eat at work so I’ve got a long stretch of time between work and sleep that I just don’t eat. Some days I have a small breakfast at about 3 PM and then dinner at 7 and other days dinner is my only meal of the day and I might eat some nuts or something in the middle of my shift at work. The main thing is that I eat when I am hungry but I rarely get hungry anymore which is really nice.
All in all, every thing is good. I feel strong and healthy and am looking forward to the next phase of weight loss where I can get below 210 and then on my way to 200. Stay tuned!
