That’s me, a giant slacker, at least as far as blogging is concerned.

I’ve been having some pretty awesome success with weight loss lately though. Last Friday marked the end of my 1st round of fat loss cycling, with each cycle being 7 days.

In 4 weeks I managed to lose 8.2 lbs from the weight that I’ve been stuck at for more than a year. I now weigh less than I have in I don’t know how long.

I have, however, been slacking on my workouts and mobility work over the last few weeks. I’m not sure why, maybe because I’m not really enamored with the workouts? I don’t know. However, the second round does mark the beginning of a new set of workouts, so I will give them a shot. I’ve also been reading through The New Rules of Lifting for Abs, so there’s always that to try too.

Here’s a shot of me from our trip to the Dominican in March, and a picture that was taken this weekend (while doing a winery tour on bikes!) that show where I’ve come in the last few weeks.

(yes, I made Derek get a Boba Fet t-shirt)

In other news, I’m now the proud owner of a FitBit.

I’ve got my profile all set up on their site, so swing on by to check out by burn and steps for the day here. I’ve only been wearing it for a day and a half, but so far I’m loving it. It’s so unobtrusive, unlike the clunky pedometer I’d been wearing for the last 4 weeks!

That’s all for now. I’ve decided I’m not weighing in again until I’m through my next round of fat loss, so there’ll be no updates on that for another 3.5 weeks. Longer periods between weigh-ins is one of the things that Leigh Peele suggest, so, like with everything with this whole process, I’m going to put my trust in her and just do.

And now, I’m off to the grocery store. I’ve got a good 30g worth of protein to get in still today!
