WIW - Let's Go Weight Loss Warriors!
This is our first team weigh in. I was a little hesitant about joining a team this go round; since I was on the last 5 pounds I knew it would be difficult to post consistant numbers every week. I definitely wasn't counting on anything more than 0.5 at a time.
Challenge start: 125.4
Goal weight: 120
This week: 124.4!!!
I'm thrilled with it. 1 pound may not be a lot for you guys, but at this point in my journey its a big deal. Especially considering I didn't track anything this weekend and ate like crap. As per my usual, I did work my heinie off though.
Beyond just the loss? I'm thrilled that last week's 3# loss wasn't a total fluke. It was just me finally getting rid of crap my body had been hanging on to for too long.
It also means that I'm 0.4 pounds away from my new 5# button! I cleared off my buttons at the first of the year to start off with a clean slate. Hopefully by next week I'll have earned my new one!
Last week I logged 6 1/2 hours of exercise (2 of that was skiing so that might or might not actually count. I'm counting it. :P) and burned 2,441 calories.
What's on tap for this week? This will be my 2nd week of adding a spin class and a swim to my weights and running schedule. Also on tap for this weekend is a 16 mile training walk. I missed the last walk, so I'm hoping that this one doesn't kick my butt. "Just" walking sounds easy enough until you figure at 4 MPH (which for you nonwalkers is a pretty brisk speed) it will take over 4 hours to complete the walk!
Due to schedule conflicts the entire group isn't able to meet, so it'll just be my running buddy and me. We've talked about it and will probably add in a few brief jogs just to give our walking muscles a break. Running is allowed in the Mountain Man March, so we're hoping to convince our teammates of jogging breaks during the actual event. Since its a military style event, each member of the team must cross within 20 seconds of each other, or the whole team is disqualified.
Basically if they don't run, the only place we can run is to get ahead of them for a porta-potty stop.
Sorry to end on a crappy note (teehee I couldn't resist), but how did you do this week? Head on over to the Sisterhood and let us know!
