Disappointing Weigh-In

Weigh-in this morning was 223.2lbs. That is a 1.4lb gain from last week. It's disappointing, but not really surprising. I didn't focus on my goals for the week, and anything that I did achieve was by accident. Also, I didn't eat salads for lunch as I had planned to do, and my tracking was off in general.

On the positive side, I did two things this weekend that were good fitness-wise. I met a new walking buddy - someone who had posted on Craigslist. A bit scary, but I figured if we met in a public place and went walking along a populated area, I'd be fine. She turned out to be nice and an easy walking buddy. We plan on going walking again next Saturday. More excitingly, I went back contra-dancing after about a year and a half. It was SOOOOOOOOOO much fun! If you don't know what contra-dancing is, I have included a YouTube video below. It is very energetic dancing. I danced for about 3 hours straight with only 2-3 minute breaks between each dance. I hit 20,000 steps that day! The next day, I was SORE!!!! I rested most of Sunday, and got less than 2,000 steps but was totally okay with that.

Here's what this week's walking looked like:

Now, this week's goals:

(1) Walk 5000+ steps each day
(2) DEFINITELY do 2 upper body exercises
(3) Eat a salad each weekday

That dancing looks like so much fun! :) Glad you found a nice walking partner. It really helps to have someone to help pass the time.

Hi Lori - it was really great fun! I used to go regularly, but stopped for various trivial reasons about 1.5 years ago. It was lovely to go again.
