Okay I definitely dropped the ball on writing the weekly updates. At first when realizing this I thought “okay forget it”… BUT hey why not just pick up from here.
No need to try to rewrite the weeks I didn’t write updates. Just need to pick up from here and finish strong.
- Current weight: 169 lbs
- Goal weight: 159 lbs
- 4 weeks left
Okay so I’m not going to get to 159 lbs even if I somehow got to -2 lbs a week. But I can still get to like 162 maybe? Even if I just get to 165 and manage to maintain there, that’s a win.
What’s been working: pre-packaged salads and chicken, two a days
I’ve got back to the pre-packaged salads and chicken. And also stalled progress by picking up a giant bag of Cheetos at Costco. (And, of course, eating that giant bag.)
The newer thing has been aiming for two-a-days after seeing a tweet about 75 Hard and hearing about it a few times before that.
Now, when I watch and listen to interviews about 75 Hard, I hear them talk about people who cruise through it and knowing those people didn’t really do it.
Which is why I’m not saying I’m really doing 75 Hard right now. It’d be disrespectful to the program. Because if I were I wouldn’t have bought that bag of Cheetos I mentioned above.
BUT I have been reading 10 pages a day (crushing that part of the program) and getting two workouts in, one outdoor.
The program so I’m counting long walks outdoors as one of the workouts. Definitely not on that Dillon Panthers two-a-days program.
It’s starting to become something I really look forward to. For the other workout I either do another long walk on a treadmill while reading or lift heavy, following Greyskull LP—alternating combos of bench/press + squat/deadlift.
If anything, my strength is going up measurably. So I’ll take that as a win.
What can be improved: social eating, snacking
Slowly improving here and also realizing social eating is not really a thing that will slow down. (And that’s a good thing, because it means spending time with friends.)
It does mean I just need to stop eating so much during these meals.
Okay my time is up on this walk + writing session. (2nd workout of the day) time for hopefully a good night’s sleep. Then back to it tomorrow.
