Day 8: Welcome to week two.
It’s been one week since I started this challenge. Today, I officially begin week two. It’s also my first (and hopefully last) “restart” day.
At the beginning of week one, I shared my “before” stats. I wrote that I would check-in and update these weekly. I have a body fat assessment next week using a Bod Pod, so I considered postponing this update until then, but since I’m starting over, I wanted to do so with a fresh set of numbers.
I won’t draw any conclusions from these new stats just yet, other than to point out that I’m at the very least maintaining my current weight and measurements. While losing weight and inches would have been great, gaining weight and inches would have been worse, so I’m ok with the lack of change this week (especially considering just how much I’ve been eating). I haven’t been great about logging my food, but I did log everything I ate most days since Saturday, and let me tell you: I’ve been eating and drinking a lot. To excess really. I truly believe that if it weren’t for all the extra walking I’ve done this week, I likely would have seen my weight, and maybe even some of my measurements, increase. Whether I like it or not, I may have to consider making some diet changes sooner, rather than later. But, not today – today, I’m going to hit my step goal.
