Day 50 of fitness plan

Since I didn’t run at all last week, I decided to repeat week 6 of the running plan instead of just starting at week 7 where I left off. I did this mostly because I had trouble finishing the last day of week 6 the first time.

I think we’re just about out of Christmas leftovers so I should be able to get back on my diet soon. I’m very frustrated with it right now. I’ve been exercising nearly every day for 7 weeks and I’ve got no weight loss to show for it.

As I do more and more running, I’m hoping I will reach a tipping point and the weight will start to come off.

Weight:282.0 pounds

Exercise:Week 6 Day 1 of the Couch-to-5k plan.

Yesterday’s water:One 20-ounce bottle of tap water.

Yesterday’s WW points:3,000,000 😉 (still eating Christmas leftovers)

Day 49 of fitness plan

Ollie in a muddy field

I took the dog for a 40-minute walk today as is becoming my Saturday habit. I take lots of pictures with my phone while we’re out, so I decided to start a Flickr set to contain the least crappy ones. The set is called “Seen While Walking the Dog”

Weight:285.0 pounds

Exercise:Day off from running and pushups.

Yesterday’s water:Zero 1-liters of tap water.

Yesterday’s WW points:4,000,000 (still eating Christmas leftovers)

Day 48 of fitness plan

Christmas is over, so it’s time to get back to exercising and eating right. I haven’t run at all this week, so I’m just going to start again on Monday where I left off. I only skipped one day of push-ups, but I’m going to repeat week 3 again next week because I still couldn’t finish any of the workouts, but I am getting closer.

Weight:284.0 pounds

Exercise:Week 3 Day 3 of the hundredpushups.com plan again. 5 sets (11,13,9,9,5).

Yesterday’s water:Zero 1-liters of tap water.

Yesterday’s WW points:5,000,000 (hey it was Christmas day)

Day 44 of fitness plan

I skipped blogging for a couple of days. On Saturday, I took Ollie for a one-hour walk in the woods for exercise. On Sunday, I should have been running, but I took the day off. Now, I’m going to be doing my running on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, and I’ll do the dog-walking on Sundays.

As you can see by the weight below, I’m doing terrible on my diet. I don’t expect it to get any better until Christmas is over, but I can try to keep it from getting worse.

Weight:286.0 pounds

Exercise:Week 3 Day 1 of the hundredpushups.com plan again. 5 sets (10,12,7,7,5).

Yesterday’s water:Zero 1-liters of tap water.

Yesterday’s WW points:??

Day 41 of fitness plan

I still can’t finish any of the workouts in week 3 of the push-up plan, so it looks like I’ll be repeating it next week.

It might be easier if I weighed less, so maybe I should try a little harder to stick to my diet.

Weight:281.5 pounds

Exercise:Week 3 Day 3 of the hundredpushups.com plan. 5 sets (11,13,9,4,7).

Yesterday’s water:One 1-liter of tap water.

Day 40 of fitness plan

I was supposed to do a 5-minute warm-up walk today followed by a 25-minute run, but I had to slow down and walk several times. I’m guessing maybe that the problem is that I waited until I got home from work today to go running, and I’m just tired from climbing the stairs at work repeatedly.

Weight:281.0 pounds

Exercise:Week 6 Day 3 of the couch-to-5k plan.

Yesterday’s water:Zero 20-ounce bottles of tap water.

Yesterday’s WW points:??

Day 38 of fitness plan

I did my running workout today. I managed a couple of miles in 28 minutes. The treadmill in the garage is cold but it’s better than running outdoors in the snow.

Weight:285.0 pounds

Exercise:Week 6 Day 2 of the couch-to-5k plan

Yesterday’s water:Two 20-ounce bottles of tap water.

Yesterday’s WW points:37 (37 food points – 1 activity point)

Day 37 of fitness plan

I’m repeating week 3 of the push-up plan. I almost made it all the way through today’s workout, but my triceps gave in during the fifth set.

Birthday weekend is over, so I’m getting back on my diet today.

Weight:285.0 pounds

Exercise:Week 3 Day 1 of the hundredpushups.com. 5 sets(11,12,7,7,3)

Yesterday’s water:One 20-ounce bottles of tap water.
