WELCOME SONR801! Sounds like you're doing great. Nice to see another person who started at around 300 dropping so much and doing it the right way. My goal pretty similar to yours as well. Under 200 by Coachella! I have only been under that weight once since high school and it was not for more than a few weeks i'm sure.
Yesterday was the final day of the 30 days of fitness (min. of 20 minutes of exercise per day). This was the 4th one I have done I think. I definitely started to fizzle at the end. Yesterday I jogged in the morning and totally skipped the after work hike. I'm on a break until next week when it starts up again. After skipping the hike AND the jog this morning I feel pretty guilty and have a total fear in the back of mind that i'm doing something very wrong or that by taking a couple of days off i'm going to be ruined. It's so odd feeling anxiety over this. I also did next to nothing last night. I cooked dinner and layed in bed watching the West Wing for hours as I dozed in and out of sleep. I felt bored and restless too like I should have been doing something but rather than give in I just stayed in zombie mode. I did that on Monday too but that's the end of that. I have things to do this evening, school tomorrow night and off to Vegas on Friday so I kind of enjoyed the doing nothing even though it felt very wrong. Skipping the jog was especially awkard this morning. It's such a routine and I skipped it for no good reason but I kept telling myself it was a little reward for how well i've been doing. It just doesn't compute that a reward is somehow skipping something that makes me feel better. I'm taking all of these feelings as a positive and it should be that much better when i start back up with a routine on Monday and i'm planning on checking out the gym in Vegas and getting in some jogging or hiking tomorrow as well.
Lunch today is salmon and green beans. I've done a really good job of eating fish weekly ever since I had my health assessment at work and was told to add more fish to my diet. I'm starting to get curious about how much my cholesterol levels have improved too but i'm very much putting off making that doctors appointment. I have to do that by the end of summer or at least that's another goal.
