Fitness log, 2/1/10

1 02 2010

I suspected that last week’s losses were at least partially water, and the fact that this week was a lot less seems to confirm that. I was consistent, though, hitting all 4 of my weight training workouts, running twice (for about 3 miles each time) and cycling once. I’ve also been pretty consistent with my diet, though I succumbed to my weakness for chocolate almonds this weekend.

Last week, someone asked for me to start including where I started from in each update so that it’s more clear how much progress I’m making. Picking a starting point isn’t easy, because I’ve been at this on and off for years. I started back again in earnest last April, when I’d hit nearly 260 pounds. By September, I’d dropped to 215. But then after moving out I got off track and my weight crept back up over 230, which is where I was at the start of the year. Since that’s when I actively started logging, that’s what I’ll use. I don’t remember if I’ve done an extensive post detailing my fitness activities over the past several years, but I should probably do that.

I saw a sports medicine specialist today for my shoulder and lower back/hip. He didn’t think either represented a serious problem, and gave me some stretches and exercises to do. I’m very relieved that he saw no need for surgery of any kind.
