Weigh in today tells me I am below 170, which is fantastic.
But I have no reason to gloat mercilessly. My committment is to go beyond mediocre, and in terms of exercise I have been 100% mediocre lately. My fat loss is not where it should be, in relationship to my weight loss.
While my eating habits are not perfect, I do not foresee changing them much. My protein is way up, and my sugar is way down, but I am not going to be pushing them even further.
I need to stop screwing around with working out with weights, and just do it. The thought of weights is always incredibly boring to me, unlike going to the track, which I look forward to. I need to just do it anyway. We have plenty of space in the basement, lots of weights, a mat, a balance ball, a punching bag, and a stereo, so I have no excuse not to.
I will report back next Friday on how I do this coming week.
Another goal: cut back on coffee after noon. I sleep, but I have these crazy ass dreams that make me feel exhausted. I think less caffeine will help.

- Six years ago I decided (age) 42 would be my magic number. I stepped on the scale for the first time in a LONG time. It was a BIG number, it was a SCARY number, but mostly I knew I had to own that number. I lost 40 pounds, leaving the obese category behind. In 2014 I committed myself to working out HARD and a low sugar diet, losing more weight and gaining nice definition. Then life happened, and I lost momentum, gaining some weight back. My goals now are different, and include completing my first ever marathon at age 48. GULP! You can read about the next part of my journey here.
