Current Weight: 185.2 lbs
I can’t believe I weigh 185.2 lbs. It feels like that happened so quickly I didn’t realize how much could happen in just a few months. I realized at some point today that I am half way to my goal weight. 35lbs down, 36 more pounds to go. 1 pound at a time.
I have never had a dramatic loss or gain so far, even though I keep hoping for some kind of impressive number drop like 4 or 5 pounds in one week, my body seems to like the 2 pound range and I’m happy with that. If you do your math properly, it adds up quickly. I’ve learned so much about how my body responds to different types of food, how much activity is needed, when to be strict and when to splurge.
I finally feel settled into the new apartment but allergies are making my lungs weak. I attempted my first jog since I got back from vacation 2 weeks ago on Monday. It was pathetic. I could barely reach the 2km mark without stopping to catch my breath. I eventually finished the usual 5km route but walked for about half of it. It was a huge red flag of what I needed to work on this week so I tried again on Tuesday. It went better on tuesday but still not great. Finally Wednesday I finished the 5km route, no walking, with ease and energy to spare.
On top of getting back to the regular jogging, I started riding my bike home from work when ever possible. That’s about 60 minutes of riding each day (16km). And onthe weekeneds, I head to the beaches at stanley park by bike. Add another few km, hot sun, and some swimming to the mix.
