Today was a weigh-in, as will be every Tuesday now. I weighed in at 294.2lbs! Yes! I’m on track for my monthly 10lb goal. So, I’m at a total of 55.8lbs lost! I had a great workout today. We’re working on my coordination, flexibility, and agility. I need all of that for fencing, especially.
Looking ahead to my race schedule, I’ve got three 5ks coming up in February and March where I want to see some real progress in my time. Along with training for those, I start training for two mini-triathlons coming up in April and May.
For this start of the year, my primary fitness goal is get more of this darn weight off. Yes, I will be progressing in muscle-building, endurance, etc., but I’m focusing on my diet to get the pounds off quickly. I am really tired of having a gut, so it’s got to go!
Some other news and points of interest:
- My wedding ring is in my jewelry box for the time being. It’s too big. Every time I go to wash my hands, I’m in danger of it going down the drain. I almost lost it three times in one day, so that was it. It was also just flying off at random times.
- People I haven’t seen in a long time are shocked when they see me. People I have recently met are shocked when they see YouTube videos of me from a few years ago. When I get down to 200, nobody will recognize me! It will be even worse when I get to 175 (goal weight!)
