Weigh-in Wednesday - Refocus
I was out of town, and didn't get a blog up for the Thursday's 3 homework - so here are my goals/rewards for the upcoming challenge:
1. Get down to 124 (lose 4 pounds) lowest weight on record
I'm sure I was skinnier in high school/college, but i never weighed.
2. Bicep curl 15 lbs – 3 sets of 8 right now the 3rd set is killer!
I did it this morning, but my form sucked. So I'm going to hold out on rewarding myself till my form improves.
3. Post a PR at my next 5K (33:58 or less, preferably 32)
The race is coming up next Saturday (the 16th).
My rewards for meeting my goals:
1. New pair of Gap size 4 trousers
2. Weight lifting gloves
3. Long sleeve wicking top
Reward for meeting all 3:
30 minute back rub from my darling love
He offered because he wasn't thrilled that the other rewards cost money, but how am I supposed to give myself a reward that doesn't cost money? Rub my own feet one evening?
Yesterday, I had my wellness assessment at work and wasn't thrilled with the results. My last assessment was in the beginning of October, and since then I've gained 3 pounds. My body fat percentage stayed the same, (great that it didn't go up with my weight gain) but I was hoping for it to go down a hair. I'm sitting at 22%, which is right on the low end of "average". 21% would put me in the "lean" catagory.
We're not going to talk about the push ups - that was an epic fail. I'm retesting myself this weekend because I'm sure there had to be outside factors that made me do so badly. Maybe. Hopefully.
Okay...now the numbers that you've been waiting for!
starting weight: 128
goal for this challenge: 124
today's weight: 129
I have to admit I'm a little surprised. I was expecting to maintain, not gain. But in reality I only had two days of tracking what I eat and two days of exercise. The rest was (mostly) out of my hands. I will do better next week. I have to do better next week!
I'm really trying not to be bummed out. After Monday's lifting and elliptical, yesterday's run, and today's lifting and running intervals, I'm back on track.
Edited to add - When I opened my music for this morning Third Day's I will hold my head high was the first song cued up...interesting no?
Okay enough of that...now its time to head over to the Sisterhood and see how your first week of rethinking went!
