I had every intention of posting this shortly after I got home from work. That would have been around 5pm (now it’s 10pm). However, what I did instead was sleep for 3.5 hours. I was so tired I just had to sleep. I’m not sure if it was the intense week of exercise or the fact I’ve been on Clairitin(non-drowsy even!) for the last 3 days. I’m guessing it was the Clairitin because it’s the only different thing I’ve had lately and 2 out of the last three nights I haven’t slept very well.
I was feeling a cold coming on for the last 2 weeks and finally bit the bullet and took Clairitin to fight it off. Sounds weird right? That’s what I thought 10+ years ago but the pharmacist said it helps boost your immune system. If I’m in full-blown cold and take it it’s gone in less than a week. This time I was “cured” in 2 days but took it a third day to be sure. Hopefully I sleep well tonight like I usually do.
My weight loss this week was better than I expected based on watching the scale all week. Sunday morning I was thinking 3lbs would be good but when I weighed in this morning I was down 4.8lbs…sweet! After working out a total of 965 minutes since my last weigh in and sticking to my calories overall for the week it’s not that surprising. According to my Sparkpeople tracking I burned 12299 calories since my last weigh in. This week I plan on ratcheting it down a couple of notches to give my legs a rest. This plan will be helped out by my brother’s wedding on the weekend. I figure I’ll be too busy to workout Friday and Saturday so on top of taking today as a rest day that will be 3 days off. Kind of doubt I can burn 12000 calories in 4 days…….or can I? 🙂 OK here’s the numbers:
Current Weight: 283.6 lbs
Last Weight: 288.4 lbs
Loss This Week: 4.8 lbs
Overall Weight Loss: 61.0 lbs
