I think things are going pretty good right now, better than it has been anyway. I pretty much stay on target most of the week with exercise and my eating plan. Weekends continue to be a battle, with me not putting up much of a fight I am afraid, but over all my "outs" outweigh my "ins" and I am still losing and not binging. I think I lost another 4 pounds which puts my total close to -15 pounds right now. Even if it is slow, it is going down. Official weigh in will be Aug. 1st to get back on track with the monthly updates. I can see that I am slowly getting better at sticking with the program, getting better at returning to it when I fall off. If I was 50-50 before, now I am more like 60-40. By August I will be on target 70% of the time and rolling into the fall with the big mo.
And I am getting stronger and faster too. I have really tried to get to the gym 4 days a week. On Monday I jog on the treadmill and have pushed myself a little faster each time, I am actually running for a bit now on it. I repeat this on Thursday. Tuesday and Friday I lift weights. I have increased the weight or the reps and now do about 12-15 machines in about 40 minutes. I think I am going to go for less speed and more weight soon though. On Wednesday I take the day off. I don't do much on Sat. and Sunday either, though I think I compensate for the overeating by doing more around the house and yard? I really like my gym routine I must say, it leaves me feeling really good, energized, and I look forward to going back rather than dreading it.
I have been better at keeping up my FitDay journal, so if you want to see what I am eating and doing, you can always check there. You might notice a few items like Fatblogger's Morning Gruel or Purple Power Smoothie, soon I will post on what these are and why I am trying to eat more of them.
I think one of the hardest things I have been trying to do is maintain a low salt diet. Holy cow I had no idea how much salt was in a piece of freaken cheese, its scary. Previously I probably took in about 5000 mg of salt a day easy, now I try to keep it below 2,000 and really should get it to 1500, but damn that is really, really hard. I will post more soon on salt and sodium in our diets.
How about you? What have you been doing and how are you doing on it? I want to know!!!
