My DietBet is almost over. I'm pretty sure I'm not going to win. Unless the ole fat decides to go ahead and cooperate, with 2 more pounds magically melting off. The annoying thing is, I had it totally won like two weeks ago. Then Labor Day happened and I chowed on leftover Labor Day party food for a whole week. And of course it wasn't healthy. So I porked back on a lot of the weight I had lost. I've re-lost 5 of the pounds in the past week which I realize is really good, but it's still frustrating.
Even if I didn't win, I'm super glad I did the DietBet. It was a great kick start. I feel so much healthier. I don't really see any change in the mirror, but I feel better. And I know I'm making healthy choices that will pay off in the long run.
So, just for funsies, here's a breakdown of my workouts for the past week:
- I biked 31.77 miles. Holy cow! That's way more than I expected. I usually try to do at least 3 miles a day. Yesterday I knocked it out of the park and did 8 but wimped out and only walked 1/2 a mile. I had a Chiefs game to get home and watch.
- I walked 6.61 miles. Not very good but I didn't go to the gym on Tuesday because I wasn't feeling well, so I just biked 6 miles at home. And then yesterday was only half a mile. I think this week will be better.
- I did 30 Day Shred six out of seven days. I failed on that yesterday, but I think the 8 mile bike ride kinda sorta compensates. Maybe? Or maybe that's just making excuses. But once again, football took priority.
