Another drop in weight this week! I weighed in at 189 today. My all time low was yesterday at 188, but I didn’t eat as well as I should have so I went back up a little. So far I’ve lost 7.5 pounds in 3 weeks. My goal was 2 pounds a week so I’m ahead of the game. Now I just need to keep the losses coming. On May 11th, 5 weeks away, I have my wedding dress fitting. My goal is to keep losing 2 pounds a week, for a total of 10 pounds. I want to fit in my dress without alterations. I need need need need to keep this goal in my head! I have a tendency to eat and then regret. Its a horrible cycle. My goal this week is to a) stay away from the bad food but b) if I can’t, then tell myself all the crappy things I’ll feel if I do eat it. Overall I do great Monday through Friday and then suck hard Saturday and Sunday. I need to be able to corral my eating habits on the weekends but so far I’ve hit a wall.

Another week of no losses for me! Well, actually half a pound, but yeah. Honestly I’m not that surprised or disappointed. I didn’t eat quite as well as I could, but more importantly I had a very hard time sticking to my sleep schedule this week. That kind of screwed me over. That said, I got in a solid 5 days of exercise this week(one cardio, three strength, one interval conditioning session), and started this week off with a good run of three miles or so. This week I’m looking to get back on my solid sleep schedule, which should make it easier to stick to my food plan as well.
Something to note: when you don’t sleep well, your body will want to eat more food to make up for the lost energy with extra calories. Additionally, your muscles don’t heal as quickly from workouts, and your inner chemistry is all off if you’re sleeping irregularly. Sleep is important!
