Week of October 3 – October 10, 2021
It’s been so long since I did a health update. Unfortunately, I’m so far behind that catching up will take tremendous discipline. So, where did I last stop at? I always stayed at 300lbs. The struggle is real. You can read that blog here: Shift Your Mindset | Sincerity (devotionsonline.blog). Before I dive in, I have to take a minute to apologize. I haven’t lived up to the standard of keeping up with the personal health side of my life. When I started the website and writing blogs, I intended to share inspirational, spiritual writings. However, I discovered that I’m losing weight, and I thought I share that with people worldwide in the hope that people will take their weight loss goals to the next level. The spiritual Bible study time has taken up much of my time. I failed to plan for the time. Now, I have a good idea of how I will do it. So if you bare with me, I can be caught up in the next couple of months, maybe sooner. Thank you for your patience and support as well.
We’ll start with the week going to October 10, beginning on the 4th. In the last blog, I mentioned that I couldn’t get under the 299 threshold. But, it doesn’t stop there. I keep pushing, keep digging deep to continue to lose weight. As usual, I exercised for the week. It’s a mixture of the bicycle and the elliptical machine. So far, I have lost 12lbs and am currently at 301lbs. I’m relieved because I am finally putting the hard work in. You choose your hard. My complex is studying what I am doing wrong and working hard physically to lose weight. I ate a big breakfast all week long. Hot cereal, Oatmeal, and sausage. Chill down for my stomach growling, I ate cottage cheese and grapes. At the beginning of the week, I eat heavily, and towards the end, I eat lightly. Here are my exercise results.
October 4: 1,651 calories burned and 83 minutes of exercise.
October 5: 1,656 calories burned and 92 minutes of exercise.
October 6: 1,592 calories burned and 81 minutes of exercise.
October 7: 1,400 calories burned and 62 minutes of exercise.
October 8: 1,279 calories burned and 49 minutes of exercise.
October 9: 879 calories burned and 31 minutes of exercise.
October 10: 1,039 calories burned and 30 minutes of exercise.
It is weigh-in day. What makes me anxious about weigh-in is working so hard to not see the results. I weigh myself and see 299. Awesome! I’m excited! I lost 2lbs. Let’s get after it. Now the more significant challenge is getting under the 299 threshold. The last time I weighed 299 was in the week of July 18. I wasn’t trying to lose weight then. I just happened to lose the weight because I was active that week. Keep pushing, keep digging deep. Get the results you want! Find out what happens in the next blog to see how I do. Be productive y’all. Be safe!
**In the last blog, a correction needed to be made by saying I was at 299. That is incorrect. I was at 301.
