late night walks and weekly reflections: 3/9 – 3/15

change in weight (3/9/21 – 3/15/21): –2.2 LBS

I did not even ride the bike this week. It was less due to time constraints and more due to us waiting for a replacement part, but this is significant as it has been the first week in months where I did not use the peloton as a main source of exercise. Instead, I focused on my eating and getting in my walks.

This fruit of my labor was shown with an awesome week for weight loss. I feel on a roll and I feel like I have found the groove again. I have strung together five weeks of losses and am reminding myself that I can do this. I feel so great. My increased vegetable intake, my better awareness fo the type of food I am eating, and taking what I can get for exercise when I can get it are paying dividends.

Our baby has had an interesting sleep schedule lately. This schedule has basically gotten me up at 4:30-4:45am most mornings. This has allowed me to get in an early morning walk before the day even begins. I have also been able to make them longer because it’s early and I am not trying to squeeze them between meetings. As much as I hate the fatigue that comes from this, it has felt great getting in some good brisk walks before work. I attribute this to much of my success this week. To top it off, I did not get my walk in yesterday and still went at 9pm, with the sky dark, the temp dropping, and the wind howling. I am proud of myself.

This coming week I plan to continue on the focus on my intake. I will also plan some more rides and continue on walking. Outdoor time = active time. Active time = healthy time.

How is it going for you? Do you even just get a walk in?
