#50×50 Week One

50 x 50Last Friday I announced my 50 x 50 Challenge here.  The gist, I will be 50 in 10 months, the goal lose 50 pounds in 10 months.

Week one has gone well.  I have done at least 45 minutes of exercise for 5 of the 7 days, I need to get that to 6 and in all honesty would have this week but I took the 4th off for fun.

My food choices have been a solid “B,” not as good as they could or should be, but not as bad as they have been.

I kept it sane on the 4th, where in recent years, I would have had a burger and hot dog and BBQ;  Thursday, I just had a burger….  baby steps!  I even limited myself to a small serving of the homemade cherry ice cream I made.

I haven’t weighed and don’t plan on it until the 28th, but I do feel better.  I seem to have more energy and my pants may be fitting a bit better…. or it could be my imagination.

Week one has seen progress, I think that is a victory!
