Another week, another game lost. I’m down $50 now. I’m still seeing steady progress in my inch loss and the scale is slowly showing a loss as well. It’s getting easier to maintain my calorie deficit, but weekends are still a struggle.
This week I start a new DietBet, my own challenge. If I’ve inspired anyone to lose some weight, why not join me in the new game? http://bit.ly/104UjSA
Current weight: 165.2 lbs
Time spent exercising: 1194
|DietBet 3||DietBet 4|
|% gained or lost||-4.18%||-2.02%|
I am quite excited that I’m already past my goal for the game that is ending next week. The pot is high, but there are a lot of people who’ve already hit their goal, so I may only end up winning less than my total bets so far. And I have 12 days to hit my goal for my fourth game.
Last week I started Week 3 in my Jillian Michaels’ “Ripped in 30” workout DVD and I still have 2 more days before I should progress to Week 4. I do feel like I’m getting stronger: I was able to complete my Bear Crawl without needing to stop! (You get on your hands and knees, lift your knees off the ground about and inch – you’re standing on your hands and toes – and walk forward 4 steps and back 4 steps, left hand moving with the right foot, right hand moving with the left foot. Go ahead, try it! For 30 SECONDS!)
And though I’ve lost inches since my last measurement, my weight is up slightly (not enough to make me freak out) and apparently the lighting in my room sucks. I actually look bigger than last week!
I’ll probably go on a bike ride today instead of using my DVD; I’ve got a lot of emotional crap going on and riding my bike seems to help.
