First off, I have to apologize for the typo in last week’s post title. It should have been Week 8 but I had written Week 7. Not like anybody noticed or anything. But I did change it so everything is all better now.

That said, let’s see what this week brings me.

Weekly Weigh-In for June 12, 2018: 234.2 lbs.
Loss/Gain for the week: -0.4 lbs.
Total lost: 10.6 lbs.
Weekly average loss: 1.2 lbs.

Well, it’s better than last week in which I lost 0.2 pounds. Either way, I’m still above the 1.14 pounds per week in order to reach my goal but not by a lot. As I long as I keep it in that zone then I’ll be fine.

At work, I rode an average of 3.36 miles a day during lunch. And here was the weekend.

As you can see by the little notification at the top, this was my best time for a 10k walk/run this year, besting my previous mark by a good 10 minutes. That means I did a lot more running this time around which makes me happy. It may take 4 miles for me to finally get in a groove but it feels good to run again.

Another improvement: an increase of 1.75 miles over my longest ride this year. I’ve been spending a lot less time on the bike trail and more on city street just for a change because, frankly, I needed it. The trail is nice but there’s something to be said about getting lost in your own city and discovering so many “new” places.

I did that during lunch today and found parts of the city I didn’t know existed, which made for some great photographs. I’m a big fan of abandoning your car and seeing anyplace by foot — it just gives you a better perspective of everything around you, and who couldn’t use a few extra steps in a day, right?

So that’s it. I’ve got a few days off coming up to attend my son’s middle school graduation and to spend the first day of Summer Vacation with the family. Plus Father’s Day is on Sunday but we’re not exactly sure what were going to be doing. All I know is this week will be a challenge so let’s see how I end up next Tuesday.

Thanks for reading!
