Sunday Funday: Week 21 Review

Posting has been a little light around here lately — with the cold weather, I oftentimes have dogs snuggling with me rather than my laptop keeping me company.  And who can say no to doggie snuggles?  I certainly can’t.  I’m a pushover like that.

Enough of the excuses (well, there will be more down below, but you’ll get to those parts soon enough…), let’s review, shall we?

A flip of last week — weight stayed about the same and measurements dropped a little bit. I’m determined to make it to the 10 pounds down mark by Christmas.  It’s my gift to myself.

Bad week for me.  Because Clarke the Brainiac Tail-Chewing Dog needs constant supervision, I haven’t really been working out (see, another excuse). I kind of miss it, though I have to admit that being lazy suits my personality as well (though that’s how I got into this mess to begin with!).  

Primal(ish) and Intermittent Fasting:
The Primal thing hasn’t really stuck, to be honest.  I’m still paying more attention to eating clean, but I find myself bored by the whole meat/vegetable thing (excuse #2).  On the other hand, IF is working out really well.  I don’t even really think about it much anymore, it just happens anyway.  I don’t do it everyday — usually schedule-dependent — but do it most days and am finding that it really cuts down on the eating-for-no-reason noshing. 

The whole targeted recovery thing is the habit this week, and I can’t say that I’m doing a whole lot with it.  I am foam rolling and stretching more — especially important because my lower back has been a bit sore — but haven’t really done anything else.  Of course, I haven’t been actually working out, so there’s no need to do anything to recover from nothing, right?
