Week 2 Review

Week two was over on Sunday and I’m pretty happy with the results.  They weren’t as dramatic as week one but I knew that I couldn’t keep up that pace for long.  Here are the numbers and then some thoughts on the week.

  • Weight: 267.8 (-1.8 for the week, 10.6 overall)
  • Neck: 18.25 (-.25, -.5)
  • Chest: 50.75 (-.25, -1.25)
  • Waist: 49.75 (-1.0, -2.5)
  • Hips: 45 (0, -1.0)

The week didn’t get started on the right foot.  I had a major cheat on Sunday evening.  It didn’t bother me physically but I felt guilty and the scale reflected the cheat with 2.4 pound jump Monday morning.  The rest of the week went well food-wise with me cooking all my meals at home except for Friday.  Those meals out fell within the guidelines and were a nice treat.

I didn’t get in as much exercise as I would have liked.  The weather wasn’t very good and I drove to work a few days.  I do considerably less walking on those days.  I’m adding in some bodyweight workouts this week as well as getting back to walking more.

I’m feeling really good following the Paleo plan and am enjoying the extra energy and mental focus it has given me.  I’ve been more productive at work and at home.  Aside from the extra planning and cooking needed to keep on track I haven’t noticed any downsides.

I’ll try to check in more regularly but won’t make any promises.  I figure staying on track is more important than blogging about it.
