Your assessment of fat grams seems a little low — be sure to count a teaspoon of olive oil as 4 grams of fat, and every ounce of cheese as 8 grams of fat.

The tuna sushi was a good choice for lunch, but I hope you did not get the dressing on the chicken Caesar salad — the fat in Caesar dressing is particularly high.

It also takes a little while for the exercise to pay off, so hang in there. You have made some great progress, and you do know that you will see the benefits later.

I would say you had a very good week of exercise! The frequency and variety are just what I want to see. As far as your decreased desire to exercise at the end of the week, I would suggest meeting a friend at the gym at those times. You will be more inclined to show up if you know someone is waiting for you. At my health clubs I find attendance drops off toward the end of the week, often because it’s closer to the weekend and people are going out to social events rather than to the club.

With your weight training, if you could get in three workouts, you will see significantly better results. Of course, always make sure you use proper form with all of the exercises. Also, don’t be afraid to increase the resistance when you can perform 15 reps comfortably.

I agree that it’s nice to be able to walk to the store, as it provides an easy way to get extra physical activity. More people should take a look at their lifestyles to see where they can fit in activity like that.

Keep up the great work, Jen. With consistency and determination, you can reach your goals. Be patient and persistent.
