It's time for a long overdue update. I made my DietBet weigh-in, which was two and a half weeks ago now so let's go back there.
It was getting closer and I still had a bit to lose. I had been neither good nor bad during the weekend leading up to the weigh-in and I had two days left before I could weigh-in. Those two days I ate great and stayed away from carbs for the most part. I went for a jog both days and had great calorie deficits while still getting enough to feed my body, but I was still .4 of a pound over. Thankfully DietBet gives you two days to weigh in so I continued the third day of eating great. There was no way I could jog for a third day so I put on my runners and went and rang my cousins doorbell and said let's go for a walk and off we went for a 5K walk! The next day I made my weigh in perfectly!
For the next week and a half I was bad, no running, no walking, small calorie deficits, a few bad days. Then, it was time to behave. So this past five days there have been two 5K walks, and two jogs. And some great calorie deficits. A jog would be in order this evening but the day has been filled with thunderstorms and it is extremely humid right now with the risk of more thunderstorms. It's only 76°F at the moment but it feels like 90 due to the humidity. The weather outside my window is changing every five minutes!
My new goal is to get to 5K by jogging for 5 minutes then walking for 5 minutes and repeating. Maybe not doable either, but it sounds more obtainable.
