Results of the Fall 5% Challenge

Saturday, December 07, 2013

Mid October, I was aiming to lose about 1lb/week for 8 weeks. I was incredibly motivated and of course, life happens and derailed me at about week 5. That week, I got super sick for 8-10 days. The following week, I had sick kids and I was just completely lazed from the week before. The week after, I couldn't get going again. This week I did minimal things especially because it's been so darn cold here. This was the results for me:

Starting weight 10/12: 170.8
5% Goal: 8.5
Weekly Goal:1
Goal Weight:162

Week 1 ~ 10/19: 171.0
Week 2 ~ 10/26: 169.6
Week 3 ~ 11/02: 167.8
Week 4 ~ 11/09: 167.2
Week 5 ~ 11/16: 167.8
Week 6 ~ 11/23: Forgot to post weigh in on group
Week 7 ~ 11/30: 168.2
Week 8 ~ 12/07: 167.6

Now, I'm not angry with the 3.4lb loss. I think it's great. Am I angry or upset about having not lost more, not really. I am a 'little' disappointed but only because I know I can do better. I mean, the last portion of it, I didn't do anything. Only my fault for allowing it to happen.

What are my goals this month?

I am simply aiming to hit that 165 mark. I am going to try to make better food choices. Overall, I haven't done too bad, but there is always room for improvement. I have 3 weeks to knock off those last 2-3lbs before the year is over and then the Winter Challenge begins! I will be ready!

I've done 1/3 kickboxing classes this month and really want to get that walk/jog program done.

My girlfriends and I didn't do the Santa Shuffle today because we had awful wind chills here and we just are not going to risk our skins. There's always another race and most certainly next year! I will be ready for it!
