Regaining Momentum

Okay - time to get back on track!

This week's output so far
SUNDAY - 2+ hours of raking (great exercise aka sore arms and legs)
MONDAY - Cardio Video in the evening
WEDNESDAY - Run in AM 5 on, 2 off, 11 on, 2 off, 4 on. 20 total run, 4+ walk.

Now today the input gets back into induction.

Keys, Triggers....
Bring lunch to work to avoid temptation to eat out.
Keep sunflower seeds in car to avoid the convenience store
Poor Richard's advice - early to bed, early to rise....

Have been oversleeping as late as 8am! Up today at 6:30 - better, but really need to be up by 6am to get in run and enough time for morning prayers and meditation before anyone else is up.

Thanksgiving Week - BLAH

Okay - last week was a real downer for exercise and input. Sleep-over at Church, Parade, Thanksgiving Travel to western side of state and back. Great family time, bad for input and output.

6 weeks of great in and out, 2 weeks of blah....

slogging along....

Last week started off great on Monday with a run, and my doctor's appointment where I could step on the scale with greater confidence and then received the news of my 167 cholesterol count!
The rest of the week - workout side -raked three hours on Friday.

Input - Thursday I had a deviation and jumped right back on. Today hasn't been so good either.

And this week output...nothing so far. UGH.

Back on track this evening!!!!

need to get back into action!

This past week has been one of relative inaction.

Video Workout Monday and Saturday,
Beavers and 1/2 mile swim Thursday.
1 1/2 hours of raking on Saturday.

And my dog went to live in Arizona with my sister. Miss him, especially as a motivation to get up earlier and get the run in.

But the eating is going well, despite some strong temptations but did not give in.
I think the ease of the input side is directly in proportion to the regularity of the output!
But I lost a few more pounds (2) this week as of Thursday.

Now for a better week ahead.

Crumby output, pretty good input....

Video Monday, Beavers and Swim 36 lengths today...nothing in between.
My running partner, Hershey, moved to Arizona today. Will miss him.

But still eating well, and 2 more pound off the scale today.

can't lift my arms over my head...

Another day of raking! At least 2 hours worth (new and old house). And two of the largest trees haven't even began shedding leaves! That was my workout today, along with some stretching and 5 minutes power yoga (exercise, not the religious type).

Monday - Video and raking
Tuesday - Run
Weds - Swim
Thursday - Beavers
Friday - Nada
Saturday - Rake

And induction heading towards the next phase of Atkins - OWL - Ongoing Weight Loss (increasing veggie/nut carbs)

Sleeping in too late....

But eating is still on track!
