Weekly weigh-in: October 22

On Monday, October 1, I weighed 185.8. On Monday, October 8, I weighed 184.6. On Monday, October 15, it was 185.6. Today I was back down to 184.8. That makes one pound lost in 4 weeks.

FatWatch lets me know that at my current rate, I will be at my goal weight in about 3 years. I would like to work on accelerating things a bit, mostly by tweaking my calories downward. I need to get my weekends on track.

My workouts for the week:
Monday: One-hour walk
Tuesday: The dreaded Bootcamp/TRX class
Wednesday: No workout -- was in pain from the Bootcamp class
Thursday: 40-minute Spin class
Friday: Some serious housecleaning, but nothing else
Saturday: Pilates Circuit class
Sunday: 30 minute walk, one-hour swim

Successes: I got back to tracking on the weekdays, and using SuperBetter to remind me of my behavior goals. I noticed my weekend eating problems and got back to my routine on Sunday. I planned meals for this week.

Opportunities for improvement: Stay calm in food chaos. Keep nudging calories down. Don't resist tracking when I know I'm over my calorie goals. Get more restorative workouts in and stay away from Bootcamp.


  1. TRX is excellent. I took one class last year for that with a few friends. It's tough, but you're going to make a lot of physical gains there.

    Do you have a means of measuring body fat composition along with the weight? Sometimes that can make a big difference in motivation, especially in the early stages when you may replacing some fat with muscle.

  2. There is no TRX class I can take at my Y except the boot camp class -- there is a new instructor this session, so I might give it one more try.

    I have a Tanita body fat scale and I use an app called FatWatch to track weight and body fat.
