Week Twenty-One Low Carb - Thursday Check-In (Month Five)

Week Twenty-One Weigh-In:
02/25/2016:         + 1 pound
Total lost:             33.2 pounds
Current Weight:   196.8 pounds

Well, I'm up a pound but considering how my week went I'll take it! My food choices were horrible, my food amounts were horrible and there was no exercise at all.

Why?

Um, I'm not really sure outside of pain and feeling cruddy but if I'm to be honest here, and that's pretty much what I do, I just kind of felt like it. I wanted to eat all that crap and I wanted to sit on my butt and do nothing and that's exactly what I did.

Was that a  good decision? Of course not, but it is what it is, or what it was and things will get better from here on out.

I pretty much have most of my food and meals planned for this coming week and I'm shooting for lots and lots of protein with as low carb as possible. The food is in the house and ready to go, I have everything I need for homemade coffee and I'm stocked up on lots of high protein choices.

My exercise plans are also complete for the week. I'm going for 5-6 days of weights and I want to work on getting 10,000 steps a day again.

I've figured out over the last year or so that I do much better when I jump into things the whole way or quit doing something cold turkey so I'm planning to just go for the 10,000 steps and not build up to them like I've tried before.

I've done it before and it's worked really well for me. My basic plan is 5-10 minutes of walking every hour of the day when I'm awake and anything extra like parking further away, taking every aisle in the grocery store and walking around while talking on the phone.

I know it's doable but at the same time I'm going to listen to my body and see how my ankle and knees react and go from there.

So that's the basic plan and I'm pretty happy to have things planned out and ready to go!

Let's do this thing!!
