I guess I'm doing something right.

Although I've only done two workouts this week, it seems that I've dropped 6 pounds since the beginning of the year. That would mean also that 4 of those pounds came off in the last week or so. Not sure if it's because I've got an empty stomach in the morning or what, but I'm taking it as a definite sign that what I'm doing is working at least as far as weight loss goes.

I did 3 miles at an average pace of somewhere between 11.5 and 11 minutes per mile. Still not terribly fast, but I'm following a plan, and the plan seems to be working so far. I figure if I maintain the net calories I've had for the last 3 weeks, the weight will continue to come off. If the weather ever rises back to something above super freezing, I'll resume walking to and from work, but right now it's just too damn cold. (not to mention dangerous with the amount of ice all over the place)

I definitely do feel like what I'm doing is good for me. I have more energy, I feel less like a beached whale when I go to bed, and my stomach is less grotesque. There's still a LOT of work to be done, but I not only feel like I can realistically reach my goals, but that I can maintain what I'm doing beyond the attainment of that goal. If I keep dropping weight at this rate, I'll probably reach that goal a lot faster than I'd originally anticipated.

I did about 1 1/2 hours of Pluralsight last night. I'm currently going through the HTML5 Fundamentals course. It's useful for the tags that are new with HTML5, though the sections with Javascript fly by pretty fast. Nothing particularly new to me, but it's good reinforcement. I'm also making better use of the SafariBooks Online library. Currently I'm going through a book on HTML5 and CSS3 as preparation for an eventual certification test. My plan is to go through several of them not so much because I think I need certifications, but because having a goal in mind will help me to get more in the habit of continually learning and relearning languages, technologies, etc. I figured HTML5 and CSS3 were a good place to start.
