Hey, you adorable blog-reader you!
How was your week? Good? Did it rain every waking moment of the week like it did here? Oh, Seattle in the winter, what a delight!
Anyway, enough about that. Like most people trying to lose weight, there are weeks that feel incredibly uneven when it comes to their habits. Sure, you might go to the gym and eat all the healthy things from Sunday to Wednesday, but when Thursday and Friday roll around, things start to slip a little. That’s where I was this week, but I’m not beating myself up about it. Why? because in the grander scheme of things, my habits are light years ahead of where they were even a month ago!
So…let’s do this thing.
How did I do?
This week, I gained 2.6 pounds. TBH, I’m not sure all of that was a true gain but again, it’s not the whole story. More on that in a bit.
Current Weight: 271.2
Total weight loss: -85.8
Favorite meal last week:
Yesterday, I had lunch at a delicious place called Cherry St. Public House down in Pioneer Square. I’ve never had Persian stew before but I’m in love. (There’s a lot more to this photo. You can learn more about it on my Instagram account @nathan_albert.)
What went well last week?
This was definitely a week where the scale didn’t tell the whole story. Yeah, I ate some salty and decadent food on Thursday and Friday, but that’s part of life. I went to (3) 6 a.m. classes and played racquetball and overall I ate some healthy, good for you goodness most of the week! The biggest thing that went well this week was actually this morning. Before I weighed in at Weight Watchers, I saw myself in the mirror. And before the mirror could tell me that I was the fairest of them all (as all magic mirrors do) I looked at myself and said: “Dang, I’m looking good.”
I don’t say stuff like that to myself. Like…ever.
For this first time in years, I finally feel confident about how I look and where my life is going physically. This week, that non-scale victory alone was worth more than a smaller number on the scale.
What will I work on this upcoming week?
This week will involve friends, brisket and eating healthy 90% of the time.
How about you? What healthy steps are you going to take this week? You got this!
