New Years Training Results, week 1

I built this complex spreadsheet, and used it all week long to track my exercise, my food intake, my results according to Weight Watchers (which I am participating in through work), and my overall results.

So at the start of week 2, my weigh in this morning was 325, so I have lost 4 POUNDS since last monday, and I worked out 6 out of 7 days!!!

The quantity of food wasn't too bad, it was far more the quality. Eating a filling amount of pizza and/or burgers for dinner (friday, saturday, and to a lesser extent sunday) can blow the crap out of your points.

So, my main goal this week is just finish getting the junkfood out diet, and I'll be farther along the road!

Plus, although I altered the workouts a bit due to unavailable treadmills, I got in the appropriate amount of workout training for my half marathon.

Well done! Once you get used to the new eating habits, they get a lot easier.

Yeah, the temptations for comfort food go way up for me in winter. More sitting around in the house instead of being outside, and less sunlight. I am slightly seasonally affected, and Im combating it through exercise and fish oil. saving for the wedding prohibits the purchase of a "sun light" but that's probably something I'll get before next winter.
