Keep on keeping on

Well, as you can see I failed to get around to updating on Monday, however, I am happy to report that I am 2/3 of the way through my third week and I have yet to miss a workout. Actually, I worked one extra cardio session in this week because I broke down and had a couple of beers that needed to be worked off.

If you’ll recall…
Keys to accomplishing those goals:

  1. No french fries
  2. No beer
  3. More water
  4. Commitment to not miss workouts

So far I’ve stayed true to 3 out of the 4 keys and I’m pretty sure I did a good job of working off the one indiscretion as far as the beer went. What do you want from me, I was on vacation!

As of this morning I weighed in at 207.5, which is down 7.5lbs since I started this almost three weeks ago. That’s actually a little faster than I’d planned to pull weight off, but I imagine it’ll probably slow down once I hit my stride.

So far, the worst part of my workouts are squats. I haven’t done them since high school, and in all honesty I can’t remember what it was I liked about them back then. The 20 minutes of HITT, while challenging, is actually pretty invigorating. I look forward to having enough time on my legs and having dropped enough weight that I can start incorporating a couple of days of “distance” running. I’m thinking I may shoot for that in week 8, but we’ll see. So far, the extra HITT session hasn’t really hurt me, though the third day in a row was a bit of a struggle.
