Packing In The Packing

Two weeks into this whole forced “no weigh” thing and I sort of feel like… this is how it should be.  I had initially thought that I would commit to weighing every day once I got to my goal weight, but that was assuming I got to my goal weight, and it wasn’t the last 10 lbs driving me insane.  We’ll see how I feel in two weeks when I get on the scale again.  If it’s 161 I think I may tear my hair out but I have high hopes.

Honestly, don’t have all that much to say this week, I’ve been all wakeup, work, workout, dinner, and then like an hour of internet/relax and then bed.  Some weeks, I am boring.  And that’s ok.  I even decided I was too lame to hit the midnight showing of Avatar tomorrow, but the idea of 3am bed Wednesday, then up for 10am at work Thursday, workout, home at like 8:30, then packing and up for 5am to drive?  No thanks.  Especially because the work part of it is going to be a damn tough day trying to finish up everything scheduley-like a day early.

Last Week’s Numbers:

Monday: 1895 calories in, 40 mins eliptical (500 calories out) = 1395 calories
Tuesday: 1683 calories in, 12 mile bike ride, 4 mile run (950 calories) = 733 calories
Wednesday: 1571 calories in, 45 mins weights (200 calories) = 1371 calories
Thursday: 1888 calories in, 45 mins biking (500 calories) = 1333 calories
Friday: 1443 calories in, rest day = 1443 calories
Saturday: 2008 calories in, 4.65 miles of intervals (.25 mile sprint, .25 recovery, rinse and repeat)(500 calories) = 1508 calories
Sunday: 1522 calories in, rest day = 1522

Avg cals in per day: 1712

Avg cals out per day: 378

Avg net per day: 1333

Avg deficit per day: 478, or just under 1 lb loss per week.  Dailyburn seems to agree and has me around 3.7 lbs loss per month.  It’s week 3 of not weighing and honestly?  Still pretty much loving it though I am sure curious.  I would guess I was around 159 this morning?

This week’s plan:

Monday: 10k run (750 calories)
Tuesday: cybil and weights (700 calories)
Wednesday: 10 mile bike, 5 mile run (700 calories)
Thursday: 12 mile bike and weights (600 calories)
Saturday: 1/2 mile swim, 12 mile bike, 5k run (900 calories)

I will be traveling all day Friday so while I’m sure I’ll be bouncing off the walls after 11+ hours in the car, I doubt I’ll have time to do anything.  Saturday, we’re attending a wedding in the afternoon…but am SO excited to make use of the hotel pool and workout facilities to do a full sprint tri in the morning before.  Am I insane or what?  Sunday we have plans to rock an amusement park so I’m figuring a few miles of walking, and then Monday 11+ hours in the car again. Before that, I’m just trying to pack in all the work and workouts and uh…packing I need to do before I leave.

Most lame post ever?  Definitely in contention.  It happens.  Brain is already on vacation.  Question of the week – what do you have planned for the 4th?  Fireworks?  Veggie burgers on the grill?  Water balloon fights?  Inquiring minds want to know…

  2. I gotta tell ya, sometimes I love boring. Just love it.

    I’m trying to talk my husband into spending Saturday at the beach. Being that he’s not a fan of people or sand, I’m not sure how that will go, but I’m giving it a shot. We actually have a kid’s birthday party on the fourth. I can’t decide how I feel about that. Like, I kind of feel obligated to go because I feel like so many people won’t – they’ll be off doing their own holiday stuff, you know?

    I’ll be coming to Texas… Houston. I’m ready for thunderstorms, heat and mugginess. Bring it! I’ll be staying with family and enjoying lot of time by the pool. Where are you going?
