I didn’t post any numbers at the start of all this since I decided to go with pounds lost as opposed to a target weight. I do have target numbers for my blood pressure which started out high. I check it using the automated machines in the pharmacy at the local big boxes. I usually just take the average since I’m in there more than a few times a week.
My blood pressure was averaging in the low end of the high range according to the little chart on the machine. On Day Seven, I’m in the upper end of normal. I’ll check it again throughout the week but I think the stairs are to blame for that improvement.
I’ve lost 9 pounds this first week. I think I mentioned that I’m not losing as fast as I have before which could be due to age or the fact that I have not gone hardcore paleo. But I happy with this progress and I still say I’ll stay the course.
The jeans are a bit loose and I’ve noticed a increase in energy throughout the day. My mental state seems a bit clearer as well almost as if a fog is lifting off my brain. All good signs as far as I’m concerned.
The challenges for the coming week are to incorporate a more intensive workout routine into the day. I may have to play that one by ear since I have a lot of extra projects going on right now.
