Week number five, just trying to stay alive. Well, not really. It’s more like I’m just working on wrapping my skull around the areas I need to improve and actually making the mental â€” and physical â€” leap to improve them.
This week was definitely better than last week, mostly because there wasn’t nearly as much eating out. Due to the weekend festivities â€” July 1st is Canada Day, aka. Canada’s b-day, for those not in the know â€” we hosted a BBQ with some friends.
Surprisingly it all went quite well for me though. I managed to limit my food intake to two hot dogs and a small portion of macaroni salad. Of course there was a very rich and probably completely unhealthy dessert my roommate cooked up but I couldn’t say no to that.
It felt like I did more walking this week. They were shorter walks but they happened more often which I’m sure probably works out better than one long walk.
Here’s where I’m sitting this week:
- Weight: 181.0 lb.
- Belly inches: 35.5″
- BMI (according to halls.md): 26 kg/m2
That’s a total of 0.2 lb. gained, 0.5 inches lost and 0.1 kg/m2 of fat gained in the fifth week.
Totals since starting
Since starting the diet the grand total is:
- Weight: 3.8 lb. lost
- Belly inches: 2.5″ lost
- BMI (according to halls.md): 0.5 kg/m2 lost
