Last week, I mentioned that I had six weeks to get down to my goal weight of 180 lbs before we left for Maui. It wasn’t that unreasonable, but I decided to post it here on the blog and now it’s time for the first week’s update.
It was a really good week, too. I made it down to 186 lbs as of this morning, so I’m well on my way as you can see. I was actually down to 185 by Friday, which was extra impressive considering we took my mom to dinner at the Cheesecake Factory Wednesday night for her birthday. It was hard to pass up the cheesecake, so I had a little extra time on the bike to make up for it.
The other disruption to the plan was our first Rockband party Saturday night. It was certainly a great time, but eating all that party food, a few drinks and two brownies weren’t going to get me to 180 lbs any faster. To make it even more interesting, we didn’t get home and in by until 5am! Throw in a flat tire on the way home that I had to get up at 8am to get fixed, and my metabolism was way out of whack.
I’m just now getting back into my normal routine, although I missed my morning bike time this morning. Depending on how I do this week, that goal of 180 might seem laughable, so I may need to throw in some toning just to make it worth talking about.
