Well, last week entirely got away from me. Too many celebrations of graduation/retirements/faculty appointments/student invites to places ended up with my calories being entirely up and down and very little water drank. I'm up a pound today (182.2 this morning), which is discouraging, but I *also* know why it happened. It was impossible to log all the snacks. My eating was completely out of whack and everyone just kept handing me beers.
One of the reasons I dislike being a natural introvert is that I never have quite developed the social graces to politely decline without it becoming exhausting over and over again.
Ah well, no excuses this week!!!!!!! Now that commencement is over, I can settle back towards something like a routine. I do have a conference this Friday/Saturday in Chicago but I will be doing my best to plan for it.
1) Log everything
2) -4,000 calorie deficit
3) Workout 4x this week. 5 would be great. Follow Turbo schedule
4) Water 72 oz per day
5) Protein 25-30% of calories, daily and weekly
Here's to a lovely week everyone!
