You've succeeded in saying nothing.

Day 5 - Thursday, Feb 16 - No exercise
Day 6 - Friday, Feb 17 - No exercise

*Sore triceps on both days from whatever I did on the TRX on day 4. I need to do more of that.
*I was really going for a 7-day streak where I exercise every single day, especially on bodyweight training. I'll cut myself some slack and say it was because of being sore. It's a lame excuse but I'll look on the bright side knowing that this first week was a massive improvement from the previous three. 5/7 days is not bad at all.

Day 7 - Saturday, Feb 18
20 min - Yoga
2 hr 15 min - Cycling

Recap of Week 1 - (Feb 12-18) Starting Over

Exercise:
2.75 hrs - Resistance training (Bodyweight, Dumbbells, TRX, Pullup bar, Resistance bands, Yoga)
5.5 hrs - Cardio (Cycling, Brisk Walking)

*I've excluded the 1.5 hrs of elliptical and brisk walking that I pre-logged on Day 3, thinking that it would motivate me to get it done. I didn't but hoped I'd be able to make up for it by day 7. Didn't happen! (Note to self: Don't pre-log exercise, it doesn't work)

*So, week 1 was a good start. I'm really happy about the resistance training. For week 2, I will aim for twice as much cardio.

Food:
Brown rice, white rice, green mung beans, red lentils, oat porridge, spinach, cauliflower, carrots, onions, green peas, strawberries, grapefruits, sugar, eggs, milk (1%), cake (homemade), chocolate, oatmeal cookies, biscuits, peanut & chocolate clusters, flax seeds, chia seeds and lots of popcorn (air popped).

*It had been more than a month since I've had cake and really wanted some but didn't want store bought (too much fat and sugar). I made some and it was really good but the self-rising flour was too salty and at some point I couldn't eat any more and threw the rest of the cake and remaining flour in the trash. Next time I'll use white whole wheat (Single ingredient).

*I also need to learn how to make my own oatmeal cookies to replace the store bought ones I ate. They'll be healthier and I can have as much as I want.

*I managed to skip the ice cream this week. Next week though, pms will strike and I will be ready with a pint....or two.

Weight:
Feb 12 - 124.6 lbs
Feb 18 - 122.4 lbs (-2.2)

*Happy with that. If I can crush week 2, I might just go under 120. I'll need to do a lot of cycling for that to happen. Maybe toss in a few hikes. Feeling really motivated for week 2.

2.5 months later.....

Had to give the log a break. Things fell apart, life went off the rails and I was under too much stress to worry about my weight or dieting or a beach body! Now I'm pulling myself together, I can see a dim light at the end of the tunnel and in 3-4 months I should be able to get my life back on track. Stress level is manageable now and I'm feeling ok enough to be able to focus on my weight again.

Just a few weeks ago, I was 125 lbs. Only 3 lbs up from my last log in Feb at 122 so I was quite pleased that I wasn't too far off. Especially given that I stopped exercising since Feb. I did a few bike rides but that was it.

Today, I'm at 131 lbs! Up 9 lbs since February (122 lbs) and up 16 lbs since starting this log in December (~115 lbs).

On the bright side though, I'm still down from 2015:
Jan 2015 - 152 lbs
Jan 2016 - 125 lbs
Apr 2017 - 131 lbs
Goal - 115 lbs

So the last 5 months have been rough. But that's life. Important thing is to get back on track. I only need to lose 16 lbs. All I have to do is get back into high intensity cardio and add some resistance training. My diet is more or less the same and I'll keep it that way. I'm still not counting calories.

This week, I started walking with a goal of 10,000 steps minimum. I want that to become a normal part of my daily life even though I don't count that as exercise.

I'll start logging daily activity again, and list of foods but not calories.

Are you aiming to eat 90% carbs or is it just happening on accident?
