I never got around to any sort of finalisation of my Winter challenge results, so here goes:
Starting Weight (1/18) : 165
[5% goal: 8lbs - 157]
So all-in-all, a pretty successful challenge for me!
And going into the Spring challenge, I am down another pound (strangely, considering I had a weekend of being pumped with food by my friends whilst celebrating my birthday!).
As of this Friday (4th April):
I think it's obvious I need to focus my training on my lower body - there is still far too much hip for my liking!
So over the next 8 weeks I need to lose another 8lbs for the 5% challenge... I have every confidence I can do that.
Something I meant to mark, but have been a bit out of touch so forgot about it: the big step down to below 11 stone. In my head, the ability to say I am 10-stone-something is absolutely priceless.
I realise this means little to those of you not in the UK, but to clarify: a stone is 14 pounds, so I dropped below 11 stone at the beginning of March when my weight was first at 153. It is far too many years since I was this light (I think maybe 20) so it really is a big deal to me. And if I do as well in the next 8weeks as the last challenge, I will be at an easy 9stone and well within a healthy BMI range for the summer... brilliant, eh?!
