August wasn't a total wash.
1. Plank Challenge
It went quite well. I worked up to 3 minutes and 30 seconds so I'm proud of that.
2. Fitness Minutes
I had 522 fitness minutes.
3. Weight Loss
It was non-existent. I was 149.3 at the beginning of the month and 161 at the end. It was +11.7 pounds. I know that some of it is water weight as I ate out a lot last month. There were two weekends that the hubs and I were out of town and ate things that are not healthy. So, yes, I'm a bit of upset but I cannot dwell on this. All I can do is move forward.
I have three outings this month that will require some planning on my part. However, I will plan and stick to it. I'm going to start carb-cycling my calories. I've been reading Chris Powell's book (read the old one, just started the newest one) and I am going to do my best to follow his guidelines for my total transformation. It's in our minds. The mind is the most powerful part of our human makeup so I am going to let it take over and the rest will work itself out. I don't know how many times my mind said "do something" and my body refused. Well, not anymore. Also, I will drink a minimum of 80 oz of water daily with the goal of 128 oz.
I am going to get 700 fitness minutes this month. I am also doing a wall sit and plank challenge with the ladies from work.
This will not be hard if my mind is in control. The goal is 2+ pounds per week for a total of 10 pounds. I will weigh in on Saturday's for my BL challenge with the Emerald's & MFP challenge with friends and then again on Monday's for my work challenge.
