I spent most of last week eating paleo - with a few exceptions. On Saturday, I was down to 121. That was before heading to an Oktoberfest party and several pieces of cake, several hard ciders, chips, etc. So even though I took before and after photos on Saturday, I felt like I probably needed to retake them, since I know the weekend cost me. This morning (the official start of the challenge), I weighed in at 123.6 pounds. I did Fran, the benchmark WOD the coach is using to gauge our progress (which is 21, 15, and 9 reps of thrusters and pull-ups) in 4:45 with 25 pounds (because of my shoulder - Rx was 65 pounds).
Here are the before photos:
The ones outside were taken on Saturday the 14th. I thought I would retake some today, since there was a lot of cake over the weekend.
My waist as of today measures 26.75" and my hips measure 34".
The meal plan I was given to follow only allows for 1550 calories. I'm not sure that's realistic for me, since my goal weight is 118 and I have 8 weeks to lose 5.6 pounds. I will do my best to stick to that, but it's very low for me. I may have to increase the calories at some point.
So Day 1 begins. Let's do this!
