Weight down, energy up!


Tuesday, April 30, 2013

Hey all, I've been enjoying sunny weather in the Midwest at my Mom's house. Here's what's been going on:

-Weight has dropped to the 135 point somethings!! So just over 11 lbs to go! I have some advantages now, too: my Mom has agreed to stop leaving snacks around. I do my own cooking here as well, so I know exactly what goes into the food I eat. I also have a good food scale. It makes a big difference to actually weigh food versus just use a measuring cup or similar.

-Training has been going well. I've incorporated speedwork into my running program. The rolling hills of the Midwest allows me to successfully do it, unlike the HUGE hills of Seattle. I do cardio 6 days a week, and now try to do a different type of cardio from day-to-day. Although I still run every other day, I miss running daily, but I'm in the home stretch of weight loss, so going to try to stick with the new plan.

-Still doing mostly at-home strength workouts about 4x a week.

-I'm returning to calorie cycling of 3 days low - 1 high - 2 low - 1 high. I find after about 3 days my weight loss stalls, and continues again if I go up, so I think this will help.

I AM PUMPED UP!!

My goal weight right now is 124. I am starting to think I would like to be 116 again (that what I weigh in my profile/goal picture, a few years ago!). My BMI at 116 would be 20.2, still towards the middle of the healthy range for my height, which is 18.524.9. However I may not be able to go that low because I may have too much lean mass right now, meaning my bodyfat % would be too low. I'm going to get to my initial goal and decide then!!!

Keep on keepin' on!

    That is wonderful news all the way around! Of course, you're back there and we're in a stretch of positively gorgeous weather here in the Northwest, supposed to be 70+ the next few days. Hope you find exactly the right combination and decide on a location that makes you happy!
