Week 10 sees a mere 3 pound loss since last week. A combination of slacking off on some exercise thanks to the end of the week being cold and rainy, partnered with eating a little more than has been normal seems to make a difference.
Eating more was intentional as I've mainly been sticking to having 3 protein shakes + 3 "meals" (is a banana a meal?) per day and I'm ready to expand my eating horizons a little. For example, over the weekend I fixed a chicken & mushroom omelet which was quite tasty. Popchips have become my favorite snack, and even though they're not fried or baked they're still made from potatoes so I should have them less frequently than I have been.
This week I've got to try to get into a cold/inclement weather exercise routine. I went to the Wellness Center Sunday afternoon. Sunday is normally a rest day, but since I had been resting since Wednesday I didn't have much of an excuse to keep resting. I went to the Wellness Center during the perfect storm of 30-ish year-olds that like to re-arrange the benches in the free-weight area along with the 50-ish year-olds that have long chats on the machines after exercising on them. After half of my workout taking twice as long as it should have, I got frustrated and gave up for the day. Later today I'll give it another chance, even if it's just forcing myself on the treadmill.
I loathe the treadmill. It's boring. I'm getting in the habit of listening to podcasts when I go workout. When listening to music I try to keep up with the beat. Mainly, I can't keep up with the beat, but the beat also changes which really screws with me on the treadmill. Finding the right podcast(s) to listen to while doing all of this is also a little tricky as I want to listen to something interesting and I'm a little picky in the regard.
Reading the above, I seem to be complaining more than normal. I don't mean to, but maybe this will get it out of my system?
