Weigh In - Week 12
Weight Change: Lost 4 pounds!
Total Loss since 3/1/10: 32 pounds
Today, I'm feeling: Great! Ready for another good week ahead.
Here's what happened last week: A great week for me in terms of activity and food. I see now that I need to work on the calorie-furnaces (as Massive Marcus puts it!) by increasing my exercise and being more consistent. Maybe that is what has held me back for the past few weeks...I was eating well, but not changing exercising much and therefore, not improving my metabolism? I wish I knew more about this stuff.
Food: Averaged about 1,700 calories per day last week, with almost no deviations. Lots of fruits and veggies, yet also more grains than I had in previous weeks. Avoiding temptations is much easier now and when I indulge (like Cheesecake Factory's Carrot Cake last week), I just eat smaller portions and make sure to work it in to my plan either that day or the next. Then, it's not a failure. Right?
Liquids: Drank much more water than last week.
Tuesday: 10 minutes of steps
Wednesday: Short Hill Loop (9.3 miles, 43 minutes)
Thursday: Pool exercises (30 mins, 500 cals), C25K Week 2.1
Saturday: 45 mins of water aerobics and did the "Hill Express" ride (6.7 miles, 33 mins)
Confessional: NOTHING TO REPORT THIS WEEK!
Weight Loss Highlight of the Week: All of my belts are now on their smallest notch...may need to shop soon. Also, I am noticing that my 3XL shirts seem strangely baggy or stretched out now. Hmmm. I also wore a U of A polo shirt that I bought in 2004. It was a 2XL, but I have NEVER worn it because it was just too tight. Now, I feel good in it.
My Goals for this Week:
• Continue to pursue goal of 280 weight by June 20 for Mrs. Clyde's iTouchallenge!
• Cardio at least 5 times this week C25K (2x). Hill Climb (3x). Weights at least 3 times this week.
Make it a good week everyone!
