From 6 weeks ago:
I weighed in at 170 this morning. Over the next 12 weeks I can realistically lose 12 pounds, bringing me to 158, the max of the healthy BMI range for my height of 5'7". I would like to lose an inch from etch of the following body areas: chest, waist, thighs, arms, hips. Again, realistic.
I weighed in at 167 this morning. This is pretty huge since I have been in a terrible habit the past several weekends of over doing it and then playing catch up the rest of the week. 167 is where I was Friday. 167 is where I am on Monday. Score. Not taking measurements till the end of the round, but, everything fits better and bigger so, I can tell that I am shrinking down.
I am resetting my goal for 162 for week 12. Achievable.
TO reach this goal, I will consistently:
track every bite
use my HRM to get an accurate measure of calories burned.
I will eat mostly clean.
I will go to my ballet barre class 2-3 times a week.
I will supplement with ST at home.
I am in week 4of C25K.. my back feels good. I have registered for a 5K for December 16th with my husband and a few friends who I have inspired to give a 5K ago. This has been a huge NSV for me.. to have become someone who has inspired other to get their butts off the couch and push themselves physically!
This time last year, a healthy BMI seemed so far away, now it is really within my grasp.
Consistency is what is really key here.
Weight fluctuations are normal and will be taken in stride.
Derivation and negative self talk are unacceptable.
For the rest of the round, I am really going to FOCUS on my weekends... really staying to my net calorie goal of 1550 each day, with one "higher" day allowable... No more three day over weekends...
I am feeling great. I am looking great. I am going to reach my goal of 162 for the end of this round. I am going to be a normal BMI for the New Year (or the week after..
