Ugh. But as I said yesterday, disappointment is good motivation to work harder the next week. Here’s my excuses: I was getting over a cold and still getting into my Eugene groove. I lost control Friday night and totally pigged out. I didn’t really walk this week (it’s so cold outside!). I walked yesterday and today though, so I should get that back on track. I went food shopping yesterday, so I should also be eating out less.
I got a new scale that measures body fat percentage. I’m not sure how it works and whether it is all that accurate though, since 49.2% seems really high. I would think that my percentage would be roughly half that, but hey, it is measurement and as long as its consistent it gets the job done. Maybe I’ll take a look at the manual and see if I’m supposed to do something to calibrate it. (EDIT 1/19/2012: I figured out how to get more accurate body fat percentage readings with the scale so I’m deleting the 49.2% reading of this week since it’s totally off base).
