Today I am down 3.8 for a total of 53 lb lost. I am thrilled with that number, shocked really, I figured I’d be down around 52 total today. There is a woman in the blogosphere that has a blog called “Success Along the Weigh” and she’s lost over 190lb. Her #1 rule is “Quitting is not an option” and I think it’s a great topic for this week.
After last week’s 1 lb gain, I made sure I kept on doing what I had been doing, not letting the + get in my head. And by pushing through it’s helped! I kept with the same diet, and exercise routine. The only variation I did was yesterday (Sunday) because I have a cold, was pooped and didn’t think I could do the C25k run. So instead, I did the elliptical for 30 minutes versus running/walking. I didn’t give up, saying “I’m not feeling good” or “I’m too tired to do it” etc. I put on my gym clothes and headed out. I felt good afterwards (especially after stretching-flexibility is improving big time). I had a good calorie burn and got home in time for the end of the game (priorities, right?).
So the summery for the week:
Mon: 2,070 cal / 50 P+
Tues: 2,112 cal/ 55 P+
Wed: 1,872 cal/ 48 P+
Thurs: 1,906 cal/ 51 P+
Fri: 1,944 cal/ 51 P+
Sat: 2,429 cal/ 65 P+
Sun: 1,683 cal/ 44 P+
I earned 64 Activity Points per WW & burned 3,164 Calories per MFP in 313 minutes of activity! So this week, I ate all my weekly points and 14 of my activity points.
I am happy with it, I think I did good. I also weighed in of Friday and had a good weigh in, down 2.4, so today was even better. Goal for this week: repeat week 3 of C25k, I am working on my breathing techniques for the 3 minute runs. I am also seeing Dr. Dennis (new Chiropractor) to have my pelvis adjusted, which should help my knees. And hopefully my cold will be gone soon, so I feel comfortable running again (without gasping for breath). Until next week!
