Back by popular demand!! (okay, well one person said something, anyway…)
It’s been a while since the weekly thread thing. Not as many people were posting, I got lazy, you know the drill.
So how are weight loss and lifestyle change efforts coming for you folks?
A summary of my status:
I’ve been doing weight training 2-3 times per week for about a month now. That was my big goal for the year, to start doing that. I don’t do much, but it’s better than nothing. It makes me feel good to work out muscles I don’t normally use (can you say upper body???). I can’t see results yet, obviously, but I’m at least using that gym membership I’m paying for.
I am currently between goals in my other exercise (distance running), and am therefore lacking a little motivation. I blew off a long run on Saturday, which is unheard of for me. I need to pick a race to train for, so that I feel the need to get out there and practice every week. So far it looks like it might be a July 4th 15K battle with a few coworkers.
Eating wise, I’m definitely eating lots of veggies lately. My lunch the past few weeks has consisted of a frozen entree that gets mixed with a bunch of sauteed veggies. I’ve taken to sauteeing a boatload of vegetables on Sunday evenings, freezing them in daily portions, and grabbing one out of the freezer each day to add to the entree. Just the frozen dinner by itself is horribly unsatisfying, so this helps a lot.
I am still maintaining my weight (it will be 5 years at goal weight come August), but would like to be a couple of pounds lighter (3-5) so that I have a little cushion and have no snug clothing.
So…what’s up with you? How is the progress? Do you need a kick in the ass? Let us know.
