As of this morning, I weighed in at 166.4lbs (the same as last week). Is it surprising? No. I am, however, actually quite pleased with that number. I binged for two days and didn’t go to the gym for those days last week. I’m impressed that there wasn’t a weight gain on the scale. I guess I can thank myself for getting back into the routine quite quickly. I binged Wednesday and Thursday but ate well and hit the gym hard on Friday and Saturday.
In fact, I even ran a 5k on Saturday! I hadn’t done that since February of 2013. My endurance and stamina is continuously growing. I was able to do the first 17 minutes as a non stop run before I had to break it down to a speed walk/run for the rest of the 5k. It took me 35:54Minutes to complete the whole 5km. After that, I was able to even go on the row machine for 10 minutes before cooling down on the bike for an additional 10 minutes.
I’m hoping, starting tomorrow, that I stay on track for the whole week. My personal trainer is back from holidays so I begin with him on Monday. I want to eat as clean as possible so on January 26th, I’ll see 165.whatever on my scale.
Wish me luck? Here’s to a good week for all of you!
My Starting Weight; 170lbs Last Week; 169.2lbs Current Weight; 166.4lbs
Yeah, apparetly I lost 2.8lbs in a single week. Is the scale lying? I feel like I should be really excited but I feel like that’s a little much and that I’m going to gain a bit or be the same next week. I know when you first start off, the weight sort of falls off in the first 2-3 weeks. I just hope I can continue kicking my own ass at the gym! But yeah, I’m down 3.6lbs since I started really keeping track as of January 1st. That’s pretty good and I already reached my goal of 3lbs a month. I’m hoping next week I’ll be at 166lbs and by the end of the month the scale will say 165.whatever.
I’m pretty happy with the progress. My only worry is that I work 25.30 hours next week at the childcare centre followed by a few days on duty as a resident advisor. I’m writing up my gym schedule after this so I know that I have to stick with it.
Anyways, hope you are all continuing strong! Keep your chins up and push for progress!
