It's going half and half well this week. I bought a scale I can keep at home. I've been trying to weigh myself daily so I can more closely monitor how certain foods affect me. So far, I've found out that the scale (in comparison to the gym scale, the kind with actual weights) runs about 2 lbs heavy. I compared yesterday - yes I took my personal scale to the gym and compared, heh. I'm sort of anal about stuff like that... all the clocks in my house a synchronized as well. However, heavy or not, it counts units of measurement just like it's supposed to.
I haven't been getting much exercise other than running around campus tying up loose ends and walking to and from work. I've done a little anaerobic stuff in my apartment (squats, lunges, push ups, plank). But I have scheduled a bit more physical activity later in the week such as hauling my laundry to the mat (.5 mi + 50lbs) instead of getting a ride and two new walking routes.
Food has been good. I've stayed away from sweets. I'm eating more, to try and coax my body to give up fat. more veggies. more cooking at home. By doing so, my sodium intake has decreased... i'm also getting a bit more protein.
As of today, i'm 323. So I'm down two pounds since friday's weigh in. wahoo!
Most delicious low cal recipe this week: whole wheat flatbread with feta, broiled then loaded up with cucumbers, celery and spinach. Mmmmm... it's warm. It's nutritious. It's filling.
