Weigh Day.

Lost 4lbs this week.  I was hoping for that exact number to see some better results than last week.  I doubt that it ever be more than that in one week.  Still noticing how things feel different.  Clothes are looser, even able to wear clothes that I haven’t worn in a while.  My face is changing too.  Things are becoming more defined.  I have a long way to go but love that things are happening.  From now on I’m going to be happy with 2lbs/week.  That will get me to my 1st major goal in September/October, actually sooner than I would like because I would need another 4 months of savings to get to the financial goal where I need to be for  the laptop I want.  My feelings were further encouraged after reading this article.  http://www.burnthefatblog.com/archives/2009/02/the_2_pounds_per_week_rule_and.php

Today’s plan was to hit the treadmill this morning which I did and then do my circuit training but plans changed as they tend to do.  My wife wasn’t able to go to Grand Forks today because of bridges that are closed.  That freed me up to clean the bathrooms and then something I had put off for a couple of days.  I did 2 hours of snow shoveling and getting my car unstuck in the driveway.  My heart rate kept up at a pretty high rate so I feel I got the work out I needed.  After I was done I went to our old house to pick up more items to move over.  With everything put away it was time to call it a day.  The shower felt so good and now I’m relaxing for the evening.  I have a radio to tear apart and try to fix and then it’s game time with the kids.  

It’s been a good Saturday.
