well, I made my goal- sort of.

I'm now down to 229 pounds. Most of what I lost was fat, a little bit was muscle. The problem was not enough lean protein and not enough lifting (I only lifted twice last week.)

Hello, I'm not dead

I'm pretty sure no one but my sister is reading this- but anywho I'm not dead though I am slightly smaller. 233 lbs and 29% body fat. That's both good news and bad news. The good news is I've lost weight. Bad news is some of that was muscle. So- along with my eating less (out of both concentrated effort to be healthier and not being bothered to make something to eat) I need to eat smarter and start lifting more often. I've gotten better about hopping on the bike and getting my cardio in, but my lifting has been sporadic. And lean protein in my diet? Forget about it.

So, in the coming week I'd like to lose 3 pounds of fat. Big goal I know. But I'll do it by eating lots of lean protein (got to start on the shakes again I'm afraid, plus low fat cottage cheese and lots of tuna) lifting three days of the week and doing half an hour of cardio 4 to 6 days of the week. (Sundays off for sure)

I'll let you know how it goes.
