Disclosure: 20 February

This week, I feel like I started getting into the weight-loss tracking rhythm again. I know it takes some time, and I love weeks like this, where my effort yields measurable results.

I did much better tracking, exercising, and eating at home rather than getting delivery--I stayed not too far over my caloric limit, exercised many times (three days in a row on the stationary bike at the gym, but then I told myself I was too busy and sore to do so the other days and ended up walking at least an hour on each of those days, so it balanced out), and ate a bit better as well. I ended up losing the weight I gained last week--and then some: down 4 pounds to 220.6!

My nutrient profile is a better balance--more protein, a bit less fat and carbohydrates. I want to work on getting protein up to 25%, carbohydrates to 50%, and fat to 25% and see how easy that is to work with. I drink a lot of coffee with half and half and eat a lot of cheese, which are the primary sources of fat in my diet. Not exactly the healthiest options, so I'll have to learn (ugh) moderation.
