This week I weighed in at 207.6, for a weekly loss of 1.2 and a total loss of 36.2. Not a huge loss, but I'm okay with it. Last week I had a large loss that made me think it was partly due to dehydration. This may have just evened it out.
This brings me to the next point. I've started setting weekly mini goals, and one week in I'm liking it. This week, my goal was to drink my water and I did great. I really enjoy water, so it was no hardship for me. I just had to make a point to keep filling up my glass or bottle.
For the coming week, my goal is going to be to get enough sleep. Sleep deprivation is linked to obesity, and on a personal level, I have a much harder time controlling my cravings when I haven't slept enough. I also don't feel as good running and swimming when I'm exhausted. It affects just about every aspect of my life.
To achieve this, I've switched my workouts around. I no longer am going to run on mornings following an evening swim. It just didn't leave enough time in between to sleep long enough. It doesn't mean cutting out my runs and swims, just doing them on the same day, which actually puts more time between them. I'm hoping it will have the side effect of getting me back on my bike the other days.
I'm also going to make a point of going to bed by 9:30. That's right folks. 9:30. I think that officially makes me old.
At least I can be old and well rested...
