    Results for week 1:
    - Worked out 3 times with generic jogging (missed a day due to random stomach crappiness)
    - Kept a fairly healthy diet. Still trying to get into the swing of it, and coming home for thanksgiving definitely isn't helping. I've had a dunkin donuts muffin or two, but nothing horrible. Been keeping good for the most part.

    Goals for week 2:
    - Start trying the interval training and metabolic strength training wolfy mentioned to me
    - Eat even less shitty food

    I consider this more of a "getting started" week than a real workout week.
    The probability that I was procrastinating when I was typing this post:

    P(have big assignment due) = 0.6
    P(posting on TypoC) = 0.2
    P(having big assignment due | posting on TypoC) = 0.7

    P(posting on TypoC | having big assignment due) = .......


    Eh, I'll finish it later.

    I walked for about 30 minutes.

    I don't seem to have gained any weight during my illness. I guess this is good.

    Still sticking with it. Lost another pound. Down to 158 for the first time in a long time. Hoping to improve at eating lunch regularly (usually am too busy).

    Had a lot of lower back pain in the beginning of the week, so I didn't try any strenuous exercise, just walked around for the most part. I tried to stay fairly active (taking the stairs, etc). I'm hoping to get back into jogging because I think my yoga routine might have been a factor in my back pain.

    Weekly report goes up tomorrow. (Technically later today.) Please be sure to let us know what you did, if you haven't already!

    Did my workout for today (Back and Chest). Barely. I came thisclose to skipping it. My diet has been crap since Sunday afternoon, and I'm hoping to get it back on track with that tomorrow.

    My weight has been fluctuating rather dramatically the past 2 weeks, with a 4 pound variance. I'm pretty sure the trend is downward, but it's hard for me to make any sure-fire conclusions just yet.

    Water weight. Eat reasonable and it will even out.

    That's alot to ask during the week of Thanksgiving! However, lunch today and dinner Thursday should be my only two cheat meals.

    (I'm cooking some sweet and spicy meatballs in a crockpot for the Thanksgiving luncheon today. The smell is killing me! )

    Then don't worry about it. Don't weigh yourself till the weekend, or wait till next week.

    Personally, I think hovering over a scale, checking your weight every day or so, is a recipe for failure. Being critical while looking in a mirror, or observing how clothing fits, are better ways to determine if you lose fat.

    That's generally what I believe, but I found myself growing frustrated as I worked my butt off all week, only to discover I gained 3 pounds. Was it water over a careless meal? Was I eating too much? I had no clue. So I decided to weigh in more frequently so I can keep a closer eye on how my diet affects my weight. If I ate like crap on Saturday and gained 3 pounds, I knew it had to be mostly water.

    Since I'm looking to lose quite a bit of weight (current goal is around 70 pounds), keeping an eye on the scale is still a worthy marker for me, I think. However, I seem to still be slowly but steadily losing notches in my belt, so I know I'm still losing at least some fat.
