Jackie and Dan’s Fitness Journey, Week 13

Jackie:

Today I weighed in at 191.8!!  Diet AND exercise is they key.  I’ve been told multiple times that this is the truth but this is the first time in years of dieting that I have successfully combined the two.  My current obstacle is the weekend.  At the moment we are no longer friends.  I find myself having no schedule and lots of time around food, either home or out.  I often let myself eat more in social settings on the weekend, even when I know I shouldn’t.  I also have not come to terms with the fact that I do not need to eat a lot of food anymore.  I can fill up quickly on small portions but I’m not used to it so I put more food on my plate than I need and then I eat it even when I’m full because hey, that’s what I’ve done for years?

My biggest challenge now is the weekends and to stop having bigger eyes than a stomach.  I need to find my work week willpower and kick its butt into gear for the wekkend.

Last week’s weigh-in: 193.6

This week’s weigh-in: 191.8

Dan:

Not a weight loss week for me, but I’m stoked because I got in five exercise sessions.  A couple hours of hiking on Sunday, strength on Monday, running on Tuesday, strength on Wednesday, and mixed cardio on Thursday.  I actually gained a pound(not the greatest eating habits on a few days), but honestly I don’t care.  I’ve bumped up my workout load, and I’ve moved up to five sets instead of three in my strength workouts, furthering my goal of increased muscular endurance in preparation for this year’s Tough Mudder.

My sleeping goal(in bed by 10:30 every night) had mixed results.  I did well at the start of the week, but as the week progressed, I started staying up later and later.  Not very helpful.  As such, I’m once again working towards my 10:30 every day goal, with the additional goal of working out every morning before work, either strength, running, or karate.

Last Week’s Weigh-in: 204.2

This Week’s  Weigh-in: 205.7
