Will the Week 13 be unlucky for me? Let’s find out.

Weekly Weigh-In for July 10, 2018 (Week 13): 233.0 lbs.
Loss/Gain for the week: 0.0 lbs.
Total lost: 11.8 lbs.
Weekly average loss (targeted goal: 1.14): 0.9 lbs.

I seem to recall saying in my last post that I was committed to losing 3 pounds this week so that I could get myself to 230. Well, that obviously didn’t happen. Granted it was very ambitious to begin with but this week I didn’t even drop a single pound — or even half of that.

I’m frustrated and annoyed with myself, especially now that my weekly average has dropped well below my targeted average of 1.14 lbs. I have 30 weeks left to reach my goal and that sounds like plenty of time but in order for me to reach it, I’ve made some changes.

First, I’m restricting myself from the elevator at the office. I work on the second floor and usually take the elevator but no more. Those extra steps will help out as will every little bit of extra movement I can get.

Second, I’ve gotten a membership to Planet Fitness. They are having a great deal that ends July 12: $10/month with $1 down, no commitment, and an annual membership fee of $40. It’s the basic membership that has some restrictions but if you’re just looking to get a good workout without the frills, you can’t beat it. I used to have a membership but canceled it because my location wasn’t open 24 hours yet. I like to get up early but apparently they didn’t. They’ve since changed to 24 hours and I’m okay with that.

I may have said in the past that I didn’t really need a gym but the weather out here has been downright dreadful. Last week, one day reached 114 degrees — I’m not exercising in that! I figure I can do a little of everything while I’m there also. This will be my new weekend routine and while I’ll miss going outdoors to run and ride, I’m not going to put myself at risk of getting heatstroke.

So that’s it. Time to turn it up — haven’t I said that already? — and get serious. Hopefully next week I’ll have better results. If I don’t, well, I’ll have to sit down and really figure out what’s going on.
