Libra Chart for May and New Training Log


This is my weight chart for May. I didn’t start weighing myself until May 9th, and not daily until May 16th. Each dot represents my actual weight that morning, and the red line is a trend line based on the average of the last 7 days. As long as my trend line is sloped downwards, I’m on the right track.

The dots that are above the trend line are the mornings after Cheat Days. As you can see, my weight takes a day or two to equalize, and then drops a little more.

Weighing myself in the morning has become a ritual I look forward to. It satisfies the fiddly, Type A side of my personality to have so much data laid out in such an elegant fashion. Plus, having a rough date for when I will reach my goal makes me giddy.

In other news, I decided to start keeping a log of my workouts. If you’re interested in knowing what I’m doing to get ready for my tri, here’s the Google Spreadsheet. I’ll be adding a link to the sidebar as well.
