Jackie and Dan’s Journey, Week 17

Jackie:

This weeks weigh in was 191.2.  So I made progress!  Once more I have failed to conquer my weekend eating habits.  I’ve done much pondering of this problem and often find myself coming up with excuses for why I can’t get it together.  Honestly, it all comes down to me being lazy.  And some seriously bad snacking.  This past week was a restart for me.  I took a brief 3 day break from the gym and got my sleep schedule back together and I concentrated on the food going in my mouth.  This next week its back to the gym for running and lifting and as my dress fitting is in 2 weeks I have some serious work ahead of me.  Overall, I’m still not a point in my life where I can easily overcome the habits I’ve carried for the past 25 years.  I need to work harder and more consciously to create new habits.  I’ve been trying to actively change my eating habits and lifestyle for a year and a half at this point.  Its time to step up my game.  I just need to figure how to re-teach myself and begin anew.

Last week’s weigh-in: 193.4 lbs

This week’s weigh-in: 191.2 lbs

Dan:

I dumped half a pound this week, which isn’t much, but I’m happy with it.  I got in good workouts every morning, and stayed active through the weekend, so it was a good, healthy week overall.  I’m going to really crack down on my diet this week to try to get a bit more noticeable results for next week.

I’m really proud of managing to wake up and work out basically every morning this week (with the exception of Friday).  I find sticking to a solid sleep schedule and getting in the exercise every morning  really supercharges me for the day.  It’s definitely better than my sometimes-in-the-morning sometimes-in-the-evening workout schedule I’ve been maintaining up until now.  So my goals for this week are basically continue as I’m doing, and keep my diet well managed.

Last week’s weigh-in: 203.2 lbs

This week’s weigh-in: 202.7 lbs
