My Diet: Week 4
At the beginning of the week, I was very excited and had high hopes. I had just finished reading The Body Fat Solution, which I requested on MOBIUS through our library at Truman, and picked up a few more eating and fitness habits that I want to implement.
Week 4 has been the week that I worked out as hard as I did the first few weeks, and stuck to a diet that was similar to the third. I wanted to see a bigger drop this week as a result. Perhaps my calorie intake is slowly catching up with my metabolism and I need to drop it down again.
The weekends have obviously been killing the diet. You see the spikes for Sunday morning weigh-ins. This weekend, we aren't going bar hopping in St. Louis or hosting a chili cook-off. In fact, I'm signed up to run the ROTC Frostbite Frolic 5K Saturday morning at 9am. Maybe there will be less of a spike this weekend, and hence a bigger drop off in Week 5?
