I know it sounds weird, but I go Thursday through Tuesdays with Wednesdays off. Well, that is except for last week when I took off on Tuesday instead of Wednesday; so instead of working out six days in a row, I worked out seven. So, over the last week I got seven workouts in. I had four at the gym and three outside. The four at the gym were good and intense. The walks were 3.5 miles (very cold), 3.6 miles (relatively warm) and todays 3.0 mile walk (very hilly). During the last two walks I ran parts of them. I am still holding to my 'monthly' weigh in which isn't due till November 18th. I have no doubt I shall crack about two and a half weeks in and hop on the scale just to check. At last weigh in I was 210, next weigh in I am shooting for 202.
Thanks for all the kind comments yesterday. I don't intend to turn this into a spiritual blog, but the idea that I was leaving out a rather large component of what was helping to keep me on track has been bugging me for a while. So, there it is.
I have been thinking about my goals for the end of the year and into the next.
I know I want (and am going to be) under 200 by January 1rst.
I am not good at projecting where I will be by next July.
Next July I am going back to Ohio and michigan to see my family.
Every one notices a difference now.
I want the same experience that http://learningtobeless.blogspot.com/
experienced. The same kind of confused, I don't think I know her....omg, it's CHRIS kind of reaction.
but hey, If I am going to be putting 14 months into something, I want a real reaction. So, I was thinking of a kind bootcamp/fatcamp thing from April 18th-July 18th. (we are going at the end of july).
Some sort of bootcamp I create myself....like 1400 calories and picking up the activity level.
When I was in the army, we would do our morning pt...which was usually a 2-4 mile run and then calisthenics. Then later in the day we would do a ruck march. It started small, but by the end we did a 25 mile ruckmarch, full kit. That was 2 months of physical training.
I went from 156 to 136 in two months. It would be the kind of all for nothing approach I dig- and it may well put me within stiking distance of goal weight. I will have about two weeks of driving around and visiting. When I get back from my trip I will make my final drive for goal weight. But really, I would like to be at least a size 10 (down from a size 24) when I go back. I am an 18 right now, and I think if I dig deep it's within reach.
Well, them's my plans.
Hope all is well with you guys.
Have a great night.
