259 - Five stalled months are over

258.6 lbs (117.3 kg)
I haven't been under 260 pounds since the end of April! The momentum is with me now. With some extra hard work and dedication, I can do this!

You can tell which two days I had off
As I am about to head to work today, I am aware that I'll probably walk well over 12,000 steps before the end of the night. If this graph is anything to go by, I can usually reach 18,000 steps these days. Obviously, in this particular week, I was off work on Monday and Thursday since I did less than 6,000 steps.

It makes a difference, too, that I'm now regularly lifting heavy boxes of groceries and moving huge pallets of freight three nights a week.

As the colder weather takes over, in this first week of fall (autumn), I've started to cook meals at home a bit more too. Yesterday's creation was a cabbage soup, with:
  • Yellow onion
  • White cabbage (chopped)
  • Carrots
  • Celery (diced)
  • 2 cans diced tomatoes
  • Green bell pepper (diced)
  • Vegetable, chicken or beef bouillon
  • Garlic
  • Oregano
  • Basil
  • Red pepper flakes
  • Black pepper and salt
Like I did, you can easily substitute, add or remove ingredients. I left out the oregano and basil but added diced rutabaga (swede) for extra flavor. You could easily add barley, or any kind of meat, if you like.
