As a result of my latest weigh-in (a total mental shift), I thought it would be appropriate to post a new set of progress photos.  I don’t really see much difference at first, but once I look at it more, I see some changes.  What do you think?

For an update on my Spilling Hope running and donations, I wanted to let you know that I ended up with 74 miles.  That’s not so bad!  So, Anna and I donated $100, and my sponsors ended up with $111 in support.  That’s SUPER cool!  And here’s the link where you can donate online.  Thank you all again for your support.

…and I promise I’ll be posting about our Fun Day soon!

I also have a new strategy for my Calorie counting: for everything that is estimated (food minus the packaged items I eat), I am adding 20% to my Calorie counts.  I’m thinking that should help to account for any underestimating–both on my end and on the manufacturer’s/website’s side.  Right?  I’m just thinking that I’m not getting the results I want because maybe my Calorie counts are off.

Oh, and yeah, Bikram Yoga really does take a lot of water out of you.  Today, after my morning workout, I weighed myself.  When we got back from Yoga, I weighed about 7 pounds less–yikes!  That’s a lot of water…I am a great sweater, though!

Up to Monday:

    Dude Beej, LOOK AT YOUR NECK. And I'm jealous that you don't have that stomach flab. Looking good buddy.As for calorie counts, I do try to overestimate my calories, but your weigh-in is most likely due to water retention and changing your working out schedule. I think if you do an averaged weight, it'll be fine :)Do you use Physicsdiet? That place really helps me with my daily fluctuations.
