Yesterday (day 7) was the first time I felt like I could go a little longer on the elliptical, so I also began my 0 to 5K running plan (which I got through a free iPhone app). I re-tried the khakis that were too tight for comfort last weekend and noticed that they were a little less unbearable (still, a long way to go!). And this morning, I decided to give a weigh-in a try. Oh boy... all I can say is, it's a good thing I didn't do a weigh-in last week. After 7 days of a lifestyle makeover I was at:
134.6! Hey, at least I'm <135? I guess that's the positive way of looking at it. The other way would be, holy cow. Did I really hover over 135 for for the last bit of my semester? How did I put on nearly 10 pounds this semester? I guess I totally underestimated the consequences of my junk-eating and frequent-overstuffing. The number doesn't make me very happy but I'm motivated to see something in the lower 130s next Saturday. It'll require my continued efforts at the gym, increased water intake and continued dedication to cleaner eating. My academic credence is that Nothing worth achieving is ever easy, and the same applies to my weight!
