5% Summer Challenge - June 21, 2014
Today I am focused - I’ll do it tomorrow ends today! Yes it’s Day 1 of the 5% Summer Challenge!
Doing the math to get my 5% weight loss in 8 weeks
10.1 pounds/8 weeks = 1.3 pounds weight loss a week
1.3 pounds X 3,500 calories in pound = 4,432 weekly calorie deficit
4,432 weekly calorie deficit/7 days = 625 daily calorie deficit
Current Weight: 202.6 pounds
Target Weight: 192.5 pounds
By When: August 16, 2014
Daily Calorie Goal 1,450 - 1,800
Burned This Weekly Goal 3,300
So with 60 minutes daily exercise (from fitness plan), and eating between 1,450 - 1,800 calories a day, I will lose 10.1 pounds in 8 weeks.
