A Week in Review – Sunday 12-21-14 to Saturday 12-27-14

 

Week-in-Review1 It has been a sketchy Holiday week filled with it’s up’s and downs. Due to some mistakes I made during the week my blood sugar rose above 100 and even by the end of the week it is still slightly above at 101.

I walked a total of 15.9 miles and got in 2 bowflex sessions. My weight is back up to 172 and will start concentrating more on reducing certain calories to bring it back down. I am going to make another change in my workout plan to try to limit the pain I feel in my right shoulder and left bicep. I want to start walking every morning, but limit my walk to just 30 minutes, and do bowflex routines with just 1 set to exhaustion. With this I will add leg exercises which I have been completely ignoring.

With diet: Breakfast will be just 1 egg and 2 pieces of meat, Lunch will include protein and vegetables, And Dinner I will include a low glycemic carbohydrate.

I have also decided that I don’t really like doing these weekly reviews and will go back to doing a daily blog.

Having nothing prepared for lunch today I had to seek out something I could eat at a diner. I opted for what they called their “Hamburger Salad”, which was nothing more than a processed hamburger patty cut up over the top on some pretty sad lettuce, tomato and onion. It had pieces of bacon in it that I wouldn’t feed to a dog. Next time I will search for a better solution.
