Day 146 - Week 21
Its been 20 complete weeks now and here are my latest numbers:
Weight: 190.2 down from: 193.4 started at: 261
BP: 101/63 down from: 112/69 started at: 153/92
Pulse: 49 up from: 46 started at: 88
BMI: 25.8 started at: 35.4Total weight lost after 20 full weeks on MWL - 70.8 lbs!
I'm down 3.2 lbs this week which is a bit more than expected. I suspect I was holding onto a bit of water weight last week. I continue to lose at about the 10 lbs/month level after 5 months on MWL which is great I think. And all with no hunger or any need for Herculean will power
My BP and pulse continue to surprise me with their low levels. I'm now only 7 lbs away from being in the "normal" weight range. At this rate I will reach that goal a little sooner than expected and be at a normal weight in 3 weeks! My size 38 pants are already getting loose on me.
B: oatmeal with flax and cinnamon
S: herbal tea
L: mixed veggies with bean chili
D: baked potato and sweet potato
orange and apple
E: 46 mins walking - 5307 steps. Stair climbing d/u/d 17 floors (12x5). Total steps for day - 9,927 steps.
M: 10 mins
Felt great today and eager to get moving. Did my stair climbing in the morning d/u and then down again in the afternoon. It went really well and felt good afterwards. Continueing to improve everytime I do it. Also did my walk in the evening. Legs were a bit tight all day after the stair climbing as usual but everything went well. I was stoked from my morning weigh in and BP numbers and it really motivated me all day.
It was a really busy day at work as expected. Playing catch up all day long. Was thrown a new project to work on thats only 5 days away from completion but has been on going for 5 months and am expected to make it work. Yep that does wonders to my stress level. I'll be stressed out all week now...
For some reason my car battery was dead in the morning which also made me get to work a bit later than I had hoped. At least I have a quick charger for it which saved my butt again. 30 mins charge and I was back on the road. I left it on trickle charge overnight so hopefully all will be ok in the morning.
Didn't get any reading or much else done today. But a plumber did come out and install my new kitchen faucet which looks really great. Finally no more leaks, hopefully for a very long time
On friday I should have my new ceiling fan installed in my great room. I can't do it myself as I have tall cathedral ceilings and no ladder to do it. Hopefully that will be the last major house expense for a while...
