Quest For My Pretty - Weekly Weight Loss Report

All week long I had the feeling I was going to gain. It wasn't that I've been eating too many calories, I've been eating too few. Also the quality of my calories has been really poor. I started a project (writing a maybe-novel) and can't seem to make progress on it unless I've had a bit of whiskey. Also the Skinny Cow deserts - I almost wish I hadn't found them because I love them. I keep eating a second one saying "well, I need another 100 calories" when really I should be eating that apple in my fridge instead.

Also, I'm chewing ice like mad. I know that usually means my iron is low. I have been supplementing my salad lettuce with spinach, but I think I need more than that. Give me a cheeseburger!

Weight: 169.8 lbs (-0.9 lbs)
Essentially this is maintaining. I had a larger deficit of calories than I have in any of my past weeks for the last two months so I don't know. We'll see how next week is.

What Went Right This Week
  • Got in 2 days of cardio.
  • Finished ChaLEAN Extreme Burn Phase! Now onto the Push Phase. That  means heavier weights!
  • I actually started that stupid novel! (not really weight loss related, but you have no idea how hard it has been to get off my butt on that).
What to Focus On For Next Week
Very obviously food. I need to get the right food in the house and I need to eat that food. I am keeping track, but I need to get better calories in.
