Moving on, because that's exactly what I intend to do, March is here. Steve over at Nerd Fitness is hosting a 28-day challenge. He's challenging everyone to do 2 or 3 things for 28 days and post their results. So instead of my normal 3-week challenge, this month I'll be doing a 4-week challenge.
Here are the habits I'll be forming this month.
1. I'll be using The Daily Plate every single day. Even if I go over on my calories, I'm not going to be ashamed and stop using it. Even if I miss an evening, I won't give up this time. Diet is going to be the linchpin to some serious weight loss this month. I lost 22 pounds in January. I want another loss like that.
2. My second goal is to get at least 7 hours of sleep every night. If I miss out one day, I'll take a nap to make up for it. This also means I'm going to have to start my blog earlier in the evenings.
I'm also supposed to take a picture of myself at the beginning of this challenge and then again at the end. Since it's late and I don't want to hassle my wife to take a shirtless picture of me tonight, I'll post it tomorrow.
Well, it's Monday so it must be time for my weekly weigh-in.
This weigh in shows my weight change for the last week of February. Let's get to it.
272.2. Yes, it's the lowest weight on my journey thus far, but not by much. It means I only lost 1.8 pounds in the entire month of February. The good news is that I lost 2.8 pounds this week and 23.8 pounds since I started. It's better than a gain I suppose.
I had hoped to be around 260 by now. Hopefully by April 1st, I might see high 250s. I know that's incredibly optimistic, but I'm shooting for the stars. March is going to be a good month.
