Week #114: In Review

"Life without a purpose is a languid, drifting thing; every day we ought to review our purpose, saying to ourselves, 'This day let me make a sound beginning, for what we have hitherto done is naught!" ~ Thomas a Kempis

Weight Loss = 0.8 lbs
Fat % Loss = -0.1 %

Updated "My Progress Charts" can be found HERE.

This was a pretty laid back week. I exercised hard on Monday and Tuesday.......and very little for the remainder of the week. Overall my eating habits weren't that bad, but we did have 2 cheat meals as apposed to one. My sleep routine has been off a bit as well. I was really excited about getting my next tattoo session done, so I didn't sleep much at all on Thursday night. Friday night it took me a long time to get to sleep, and I ended up sleeping in really late on Saturday.

As for the To-Do List, I can honestly say that I didn't even look at it. I did however address a few things that were on the list today.

In the end I still managed to lose .8lbs which is fine by me. I just wish that my guideline results had far less yellow and red in it.

I leave for Ontario tomorrow morning (April 8th) and I'm not coming back until the 17th, so the next 1 1/2 weeks are going to be a real challenge for me. Everyone back home knows that I'm watching what I'm eating, so I should be able to eat properly. I'm hoping to go for a lot of walks to make sure I meet my exercise goals.

My overall goal for the trip it to come back lighter.......or at the VERY least even, weight wise.

I should be able to post a fair bit while I'm at home since I have access to a computer.......I'll try to keep everyone updated.

I hope everyone else had a great week.

Hi Sir,

I'm so glad to find you again. I've been sick for a month or two, but I'm back on the job myself.

I love your goals and categories!
