Last week I made the mistake of NOT weighing in, and I think it’s dulled my focus. I was hoping after my last weigh in on the 10th, to drop from 293 and hit sub 290. I didn’t weigh in, and I think I lost my focus a bit on that goal. When I weighed in today I paid for it. Regressions pretty much across the board.
- Weight: 295 (up 1 lbs)
- Chest: 50 (up 1 inch)
- Waist: 51.5 (up 1.5 inches)
- Hips: 45.5 (down .5 inches)
- Thigh: 27.5 (no change)
- Bicep: 17 (no change)
- Neck: 17 (no change)
- BF%: 32.49 (up 2.1%)
This was NOT what I would call a good. But I’m not surprised by the results. This week I had quite a few cheats for convenience sake. That was just not the way to handle my shit. This was just failing. It happens, but this time I’m not discouraged as much as I am simply disappointed. Sure, I lost a lot of ground I had gained, but I’m going to have to re-group and re-focus on these goals I have for myself if I ever what to achieve them.
The reality is, I don’t think I’ve really set the Intention I should. I think I’ve said I want to lose 100 lbs, but that’s not the same as saying, I’m losing 100 lbs. Not, I’m going to lose, I’m actually in that process of losing 100 lbs. I’m still down 20lbs from when I started this journey, but I’ve not held to the original goal with the same fervor. That’s an issue I have to correct.
I’ve been rolling PALEO now for 5 months. It’s been great, but I’m switching back to Slow Carb to change up my focus and get the fire burning a bit more. It’s a mental game more than a physical, as both plans are effective. I am losing 100 lbs. This is happening. There will be set backs. I will recover.
