week 3's progress

it's been a few days. as inevitably happens, i've gotten too busy to keep up with my daily food posts. but really, who wants to read about every little thing i put in to my mouth anyway, right? what's most important is compliance and results and since i last wrote, it's been pretty on track. i did have one day that i would have been ashamed to report. i had a pounding headache all day and ate two (yes two!) pastries and had a lot of coffee. it was like i was trying to chase the headache away with a healthy dose of caffeine and sugar. it only partially worked and of course i didn't feel too great about my food choices afterwards. regardless of my slip up, i still made good progress last week. only down 1 lb but i lost .25 from waist, hips, and thighs. updated progress pics will be forthcoming at some point. my activity level has been really high lately, which seems to give me a bit more leeway with my diet, but i know i have to be careful of falling into the trap of feeling too comfortable. but, in addition to my regular workouts, i've played around with the following pursuits...a few bike rides up and down some steep hills 2-3 times (biking uphill has never been my strong suit), a 35 mile leisurely bike ride, finally trying my hand at rock climbing again for the first time in years, and taking my first ever kettlebell class. i love being so active, but i do often worry about getting enough recovery. speaking of, it's off to bed for me to try to get my 8 hrs. sleep is always the first thing i sacrifice...

I appreciated that piece of writing made laconically plus smartly, varying from all others in the Internet
