There is no logic behind the success I had this week. I ate more, worked out less, and lost more. Maybe the scale calibration was off - but for now WHOO HOO!
Here's my summary for this week. I stuck to my meal and exercise plan. The new food for the year appears to be Tofu. I continued to mix it into my breakfast, it also makes an easy snack with salsa. I'm also adding it cubed onto my salads. I guess we are now eating TONS of tofu as we had more than 6 containers in the refrigerator at one time. Now that is a major change! So I continued to do a great job of hitting my protein percentage. One day I had birthday cake - and on that day the calorie intake was high - 1634 cals, but for the week I'm right on target!

Another double check is that I set my polar loop activity level to the equivalent of 1.5 hour jog every day. So when I achieve my goal - even if that's from walking, standing, or other activities - it's the equivalent of a nice run. So this week, every day, I ran for approximately 1 hr 20 min (on paper so to speak!)
Here is the summary for the week. A big surprise - I dropped ~4.5 pounds this week! I literally let out a little shout.

So what's proposed for next week:
- Increase time on the elliptical (target 40 by end of Feb)
- Add a few core maneuvers to my daily routine (Be on the ball)
- Revise workout schedule to accommodate new work hours
HAVE A GREAT DAY!
