Weekly Weight:

The Scale: July 8th, 2022

Nope you are not seeing last week’s post, you are seeing this week’s. It is just that the scale did not change. To be honest I am not terribly surprised. we started the week with a holiday barbeque, ate left overs on Tuesday, got back to normal on Wednesday with the extreme heat limiting most activity mainly because I simply didn’t feel like moving on most of those days. My skin felt too hot to wear and walking to the mail box produced work out level sweats which made even indoor activity look foolish.

Then the rains set in on Thursday, the heat sticking around with them both yesterday and today. With the power fluctuations I simply didn’t want to be working out when the power went down. I know that sounds silly, but I just didn’t want to be mid workout when the internet or power went out. So I skipped the work outs.

I did manage to record my food. I am currently using the free version of the My Fitness Pal App. My plan is to spend July recording my food daily in the log of the free version, getting myself into the habit. Once I get into the habit of using it I am going to make certain I play around with all of the free components. Then I am going to shift into the paid version and compare the two so that I can see if the free version has everything I want or if the paid version is a better fit. I know that sounds a little strange, but sometimes I find with certain apps that the items I personally want are in the free version and I don’t need the paid one. Other times I am okay with the free version but fall in love with some aspects of the paid one. So I figured I’d compare the two and see which one is right for me. The link is below if you want to try out either the free of paid version of the app. Thus far I am really liking the food diary aspect of the app. It is very easy to use and has the foods I eat. (I only get a commission if you use the paid version but nothing if you use the free one, in case you are wondering about clicking)

So you will be hearing about My Fitness pal for a while as I play with the system. At the moment I am building the habit of logging my food (because keeping a food diary always helps me stay on track even if it is with a pen and a notebook.)Once I get into the habit of remembering to reach for the app to log in everyday it becomes easier to remember to do. It just takes a while (and a few post it notes) for me to build the habit. So that is where I am with that.

So as much as I am not thrilled with the same weight as last week, I did manage to log my food all week and at least I didn’t gain anything. So on a week with little exercise, monitoring my food at least kept me stable.

The Stats:

Starting Weight: 246.0 lbs

Last week’s Weight: 220.0 lbs

This week’s weight: 220.0 lbs

Change this week: 0.0 lbs

Lost thus far: 26.0 lbs

And so we finish out another week. While I didn’t make any progress, at least i managed to hold my own. Personally, I think there is a lot of value in that.
