Today, I weighed in at 156.8 lbs. for a total weight loss of 8.6 lbs. after two weeks. Also, I maintained my weight from yesterday and I reached my goal of staying under 160 lbs. through the weekend. However, I cheated today and had a couple of yerba mate drinks with had about 56 grams of sugar between the two. That’s a lot of sugar which is one of my biggest addictions and/or hurdles. I guess that’s another good reason for increasing my exercise; it helps combat the some of the harmful effects of all the sugar that I consume. Other than that, my 4 mile run today was great. The weather was cooler and refreshing, and everybody that I crossed paths with greeted me with a positive mood. I still don’t notice much difference in terms of appearance, but that is not really my main goal.
