Notes: This was a rough week. I hit my weight mark, losing 1.8 pounds, but I consciously didn’t eat certain things, and limited my portion amounts. I was hovering around 198 much of the week, in perfect striking distance for 195. I did two-a-days twice to shock my system, and it worked. I even saw 194 briefly.
All my runs were strong. The 6-miler Sunday was particularly hilly. I hit the weights three times this week and it feels like it. I’m also spending at least 15-minutes in the sauna or steam room afterwards, which feels great, but can put the whack on me.
My food was good this week. No eating out except for Saturday and that was Thai food.
My workout base is solid at this point, now I will start adding some intensity to my workouts to increase their potency and ensure that I continue to drop weight. Soon I will add a fourth day of running.
