It’s early in the week, but this isn’t where I wanted to be. Last week I hit a floor of 166 and couldn’t move below it. Trying again this week. Looking for 164 on Thursday!
I have another resolution that isn’t on 43T yet, that I should probably be tracking. I told myself I want to go to the gym 3 times a week for a 30 minute workout on the elliptical. So far, I’ve only missed three weeks since the first of the year. And I’ve already worked out twice this week. Go, me!
Ok, so this week was a bit of a bust. Up 1.5 lbs from my low of last week. Maybe it’ll be lower tomorrow…
It’s always my low for the week, so I love weighing in on Friday. Today 164.5 Woot!
Down to 166.5 this morning. it’s a sinusoid, but it’s got a negative slope…
Ok, so a steady decline since my return to the top. 167.5 today.
Back up to the beginning, almost. 170. What a week of travel will do to you.
Ok, so I’m a physicist. So sue me.
The thing is, there is a clearly periodic function to my weight. I’ve been plotting it on a graph for 2 1/2 weeks now, and the shape looks like waves in the ocean. The trough of each wave is Wednesday or Thursday, and the peak is a spike on Monday. Why is this?
Every weekend, on Friday and Saturday night, I allow myself a martini or manhattan or some other cocktail. Then on Saturday and Sunday we do family and friends events which inevitably include things like pizza and lasagna and wine. I’m clearly adding something like 2 lbs of calories on the weekend, then burning them off over the week, only to add it back the following weekend.
Now the trend is still favorable, even with this periodic function removed; I’m at 168 today, and I was at 169 last tuesday and 170 the tuesday before. Nevertheless, I think more moderation on the weekends would serve me well.
To 168.5. It was expected, but disappointing nonetheless.
Eat less. Move more.
today I was at 166.5. This is a low spike, I know. It will go back up tomorrow, but it’s good to know I’m making progress.
Down to 168.5 this morning!
(maybe I’ll have a cookie for dessert tonite)
three down, nine to go!
